PTPA Seal of Approval Latest Award-Winning Products for 2017

Top marketing firm PTPA Media today announces the latest round of recipients of the Parent Tested Parent Approved Seal of Approval. The results come after a thorough product approval process whereby families (selected from a community of over 75,000 families) put products to the test in the context of their daily lives.

“Ask any mom about how she chooses which stroller to buy, which food to give her child, and which toys to buy and she’ll tell you she trusts other moms more than brands or ads,” said Sharon Vinderine, President and CEO of PTPA Media.

How Brands Build “Mom” Trust

“Today’s Moms say they’re not satisfied with the way brands speak or market to them. More and more they are turning to online reviews from their peers for purchase considerations,” added Vinderine. “Authenticity is the only currency that matters, and that comes from the assurance that other moms have experienced a product personally, and found that it met or exceeded their expectations. PTPA’s Seal of Approval conveys this all at a single glance.”

How Winners Are Determined

Families across North America participate in the testing process, at no cost to them. They evaluate the products with their families in real life environments rather than simply conducting a consumer vote. Their feedback and evaluations are carefully tallied and curated, and products that meet their standards earn the coveted PTPA Seal of Approval, which can be leveraged on packaging, advertising, end-cap displays, and more. News of the victory is shared among our community of over 75,000 families. Independent research has confirmed that the PTPA Seal of Approval ranks among the top 3 most recognized seals in North America.(1)
