Parent Tested Parent Approved

Parents are 86% more likely to make a purchase based on the recommendations of other parents

Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA), the leader in trusted consumer product awards for families, announced today the highly-anticipated recipients of its coveted Seal of Approval award.

Comprising more than 200,000 parents and based on the principle of unbiased and authentic trials from North America’s largest parent testing community, recipients of the coveted award were selected based on criteria such as outstanding product functionality, value and innovation.

“Parents are 86% more likely to make a purchase based on the recommendations of other parents,” said Sharon Vinderine, founder and CEO, PTPA Media. “The Seal of Approval acts as a powerful symbol of trust and recognition, giving parents the ability to make confident purchasing decisions while distinguishing the top products from other comparable brands. That’s the power of word-of-mouth marketing — we trust what others have to say when we know they’re unbiased and have nothing to gain. And moms trust moms — that’s just a fact.”

This season’s award recipients include products that champion innovation and quality, while addressing many parents’ desire to shop for items that are safe, a friend to the planet, diverse, and generally make parents lives easier or offer a refreshing lift to cope with the year ahead. See the complete list of winners below.
