iParenting Media Awards Announces Excellent Products of 2007

Evanston, IL - iParenting Media Awards announces the winners of our Excellent Products of 2007 Call for Entry, during which we evaluated items ranging from high-tech toys and baby gear, innovative software and games, creative crafts and educational items to helpful safety products and household helpers. All of the items were thoroughly evaluated by experienced reviewers to determine which ones exceeded the standards to earn an award.

The evaluation process created by the iParenting Media Awards program is so thorough it has attained ISO 9001:2000 Certification from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). ISO is the world's largest developer of standardization regulations, and ISO 9001:2000 is an internationally recognized standard of quality assurance. Only a fraction of the companies that attempt this certification achieve it.

"iParenting is celebrating its 11th year of reviewing products for families. The iParenting Media Awards program is proud to thoroughly review products and then recognize only the best ones in the marketplace and share them with our audience," says Alvin All, Chief Executive Officer of iParenting Media. "During our Excellent Products Call for Entry, we reviewed many interesting items, but only the ones that exceeded our high evaluation standards earned the iParenting Media Award."

To be considered for an award, each company submitted four identical samples of each product, which were then precisely matched within iParenting's database of hundreds of experienced reviewers using iParenting's state-of-the-art technology. An expert, a childcare setting and a family reviewed the products and submitted a thorough evaluation of each item. Results were compiled and submitted to the iParenting Media Executive Committee for final approval. The end result of this comprehensive process is a list of award-winning products families can feel confident in purchasing for their loved ones.

Here is the list of all the iParenting Media Award winners for the Excellent Products of 2007 Call for Entries:
