Now entering its 20th year, NAPPA is a well-known name in the world of children’s learning and entertainment. Parents, relatives and those who work with children rely on NAPPA’s recommendation of high-quality toys and products that provide “smart fun,” good design, and grow with children’s ever-expanding interests and skills.
“NAPPA-winning products meet the most stringent criteria and are judged by nationally recognized industry experts, educators, reviewers and advocates in their fields,” says NAPPA Manager Barbara Smith Decker. “NAPPA has set the industry standard of excellence for two decades and is a much sought-after award. When parents see the NAPPA Honors seal on winning products, they’re assured of a topnotch fun and learning experience for their children.”
NAPPA judge Alex Chisholm said of Wizard101: “This multi-player online adventure game encourages social activity and collaboration among players. While other online fantasy games may be too mature for some kids, Wizard101 hits a nice balance among fun, adventure and competition as players are summoned to help save Wizard City.”
