Established in 1978, Parents’ Choice Awards® is the nation’s oldest nonprofit program created to recognize quality children’s toys and media. Our selection process screens for originality of design and purpose, long-term learning value, long-term play value, fair market value, and fun. We champion toys and media that prompt kids to ask: How? Why? and What If? We honor books that tempt even the most reluctant of readers. We applaud well-crafted music that respects, not insults, children. Parents’ Choice Award winners attest to the power of learning through play. And that’s why we say: Read More. Play More. Learn More.
