Creative Child Magazine’s Awards Program is unique in that all products submitted are reviewed by moms, educators and early education profess
Each year, a two day event is held in Henderson, NV where over a 60 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 Product, 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. The Seal of Excellence award is given to those products that, although were not a finalist, still exceeded 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.
