Only the most select products win the prestigious NAPPA award.  NAPPA’s team of independent judges involve input from parents, children and professionals working with children to name the most entertaining, appealing, safe, educational, age-appropriate and enduring products as NAPPA winners. Recognized as the most comprehensive awards program of its kind, NAPPA holds two distinct competitions each year:the NAPPA Children’s Products winners and the NAPPA Parenting Resources winners.  Now in its 20th year of serving families, the NAPPA seal has come to symbolize innovation and high quality that parents trust.
