PARENTS' CHOICE GIVES THUMBS UP TO PEACEABLE KINGDOM IN GAME & TOY CATEGORIES
With A Mere 20% Entries Recognized By Judges, Lost Puppies Earns Fall '11 Approved Award; Quick Sticker Kits Win Fall '11 Fun Stuff Award
Berkeley, CA (October 25, 2011) - With so many games and toys on the market today, how can a parent (or grandparent) choose an age appropriate product? The advice of the Fall 2011 Parents' Choice Awards Committee comes to the rescue of perplexed shoppers with its list of new products that are perfect for today's kids, including these from Peaceable Kingdom: Lost Puppies, a cooperative game for kids, which earned an Approved Award; and the $4.99 priced Quick Sticker Kits, which earned a Fun Stuff Award.
As their website states, the Parents' Choice Awards are not a "hot toys" listing but a non-profit resource that searches out and recommends products that help kids grow – imaginatively, physically, morally and mentally. Plus they must be fairly priced products that are fun, safe and socially sound. That's a tall order to fill and only 20% of those items submitted to the awards program ever earn a commendation, of any type. Peaceable Kingdom won two!
Among the glowing reports from the judges after playing the Lost Puppies game:
visually appealing to younger children - makes it a good family game night choice, as older kids can help younger children safely navigate every lost puppy home.
And they commented about affordable Quick Sticker Kits:
These are cute and inexpensive kits for making simple purses, dinosaur play scenes, or robots as art projects- this is an inexpensive and fun art project for younger kids. With its low price point, it works well as a stocking stuffer or party favor.
