For nearly twenty-five years, Dr. Toy has been awarding children's products her seals of approval. These items have distinguished themselves over other products in quality and excellence, providing both lasting value and lasting learning. And, of course, providing lasting fun.
The iParenting Media Awards Program provides a credible and objective method of determining the best products in the marketplace and then honors them with the most prestigious consumer award. Our reviewers are a diverse set of parents, experts, licensed childcare centers and schools nationwide.
The Oppenheim Toy Portfolio was founded in 1989 as the only independent consumer review of children's media. The organization does not charge entry fees or accept ads from manufacturers. Award-winning products are selected by a noted expert in child development, children's literature, and education, and further tested by an objective panel of kid judges. Judging criteria include kid-testers' responses along with expert assessment of educational and play value, safety, age appropriateness and other factors.
