"Parrot products have always been designed with safety and quality in mind, and this recognition reinforces our progress," said Kelly Zachos, director of marketing North America for Parrot. "Parents demand design coupled with functionality and Parrot offers the best of both."

The Parrot Minikit Chic is a portable Bluetooth hands-free kit that can be used in the car, in the office and at home.

The two speakers communicate wirelessly with each other allowing them to be positioned anywhere in the room.

Parrot's products were among many entries competing to win the PTPA Media Seal of Approval for the Fall 2009 campaign. PTPA Media's mission is to discover and appraise products designed for families. Companies throughout North America submitted their products for review and they were matched with PTPA Media's large database of parent testers. The products were tested by savvy parenting reviewers, and professionals and the results were compiled for PTPA Media Inc.'s review committee for the final decision. The winners of the prestigious Seal of Approval from PTPA Media are selected based on value, functionality, quality and appeal of the product.

"We are thrilled to announce this latest group of Fall 2009 PTPA Award winners," says Sharon Vinderine, founder of PTPA Media. "We have had overwhelming feedback from the parenting community that the type of testing conducted by PTPA Media is exactly what they have been waiting for. We feel that parents are the best evaluators of these types of products as they are testing the products in their real life home environments. We at PTPA Media give consumers the tools they need to purchase products for their family wisely. Consumers are tired of bringing home products that look great in the package but serve no purpose once purchased" says Vinderine. "Our hope is that seeing the PTPA Media Seal on product packaging will help empower parents to make the best possible purchase, thereby saving their hard earned income for purchases that will offer value."
