Great gifts for children

2012's top books, DVDs, games, music, toys and virtual products

The 2012 National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA) results are in. Judges have selected the year’s top toys, games, books, CDs, DVDs, apps, software and websites, providing busy parents with a quality holiday gift guide. NAPPA's Gold Award-winning products have been carefully tested, evaluated — and played with — by expert judges and kid testers alike. They were chosen for their entertainment and educational value, as well as their quality and ability to withstand hours of play.

With more than 20 years of experience, NAPPA is one of the oldest and most respected awards programs in the country. The program enlists a team of independent expert judges and family testers to review each submission thoroughly. Together, they select the most entertaining, appealing, safe, educational, age-appropriate and enduring products as Gold, Silver and Honors winners.
