PTPA winners are chosen based on merit and consumer experience - not on commercial considerations. As a result, the PTPA Seal has become an international symbol of quality, effectiveness and value in the family marketplace.
Consumers looking for practical, high-quality products and services can rest easy knowing that products bearing the PTPA Media "Winner" Seal are indeed "Parent Tested, Parent Approved."
Even celebrities look for the PTPA Media Seal.
"As a working single mother, I go to PTPA for unbiased and 'safe' advice...from parents, not marketers pushing a particular product," says actress and author Josie Bissett, star of Melrose Place and mother of two school-age children.
Companies ranging from Disney and Johnson’s Baby to Snapfish by HP to Baby Einstein and Cisco submit products for testing by PTPA's network of over 36,000 volunteer product testers. To earn the seal, a product or service must meet with the approval of parent product testers.
“We are honoured that these winning companies have chosen to have their products tested by our community of parent volunteers” says Sharon Vinderine, CEO of PTPA Media Inc. “Being willing to go through the testing process is really a testament to the quality that they put into their offering to consumers. The Seal of Approval that accompanies these winning products and services provides a trusted reference point for families looking for guidance when making purchases for their families.”
