The National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) is the "go-to" source for parents and professionals looking for the best children’s products and resources for parents.
Swinxs not only won the award but was awarded with the Gold Standard, their highest honor.
Creative Child Magazine's Awards Program is unique in that more than 100 mothers and early youth educators review all entries. The reviewers who fill out evaluation forms at each toy station critique hundreds of toys, dolls, games, etc., on their positive value for children. Creative Child Magazine's staff collects the forms and tallies up the score at the end.
The Seal of Approval award is run by an independent testing panel consisting of parents, children and educators. Award recipients are determined using a multi-step testing process conducted over an eight week period in which panelists have the opportunity to trial and judge the submitted products, rating each on desirability, sturdiness, interactive stimulation and other ingredients essential in the make-up of a quality product.
Dr. Toy’s 10 Best Audio Products Award and Dr. Toy’s 100 Best Products Award are two outstanding accolades to be added to Swinxs’ credentials. Dr. Toy, Stevanne Auerbach, PhD, remains one of the world’s leading experts on play, toys and products and has been awarding children’s products her seals of approval for over twenty-five years. According to Dr. Toy, award winners have proven themselves over other products in quality and excellence, providing both lasting value and lasting learning.
Established in 1978, Parents’ Choice Foundation is the nation’s oldest nonprofit consumer guide to quality children’s media.

It’s an honor that doesn’t come easily! The Parents' Choice Silver Honors are given to excellent products that are designed to entertain and help children develop universally ethical attitudes, and rigorous standards and skills.
