Creative Child Magazine's Awards Program is unique in that all products submitted are reviewed by moms, music educators and early education professionals. Products are reviewed by many people - the very people who would purchase them.
Each year, a two day event is held in Henderson, NV where over a 50 guest reviewers are invited to a local convention center to attend our product review. All products are divided into categories and displayed at various stations. Guest reviewers are asked to sit and review each product at every station. This allows for each product to receive multiple reviews.
An online review form is provided to each guest reviewer, to aid them in evaluating each product. The review forms are to include written comments and a score value based on criteria that corresponds to the product's category. Upon completion of the event, all scores are tabulated and comments are reviewed.
Based on the scores and comments, products are then determined to be a finalist for DVD, CD, Book, Game and Toy of the Year. Only one product per category can win a Toy of the Year award, as well as, CD, DVD, Book and Game of the Year. The remaining finalists may receive a prestigious Preferred Choice award or the Seal of Excellence based on their ability to exceed expectations for nurturing creativity and education in children.
All products submitted, including award winners, are officially announced on our website, www.creativechild.com. The Creative Child Awards seals are a distinguishing mark of achievement and desirability.
Note - Creative Child Magazine's Awards Program is mom tested, educator approved. All reviews are based on the opinions. We recommend, if you have a concern regarding any of the products featured on our website or published in Creative Child Magazine, please contact the Consumer Products Safety Commission.
