The National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) has been in existence for more than 20 years and is the most comprehensive and most selective awards program of its kind. NAPPA's recognition is more than just a seal of approval: it means that a product has been carefully evaluated against comparable products and deemed "best in its class" by expert judges, parent and child testers, and product reviewers.
NAPPA is an awards competition, which is much more than a seal of approval. A NAPPA winner stands out among its competition – selected as best in its class by expert judges, parent and child testers, and product reviewers.
