PTPA ™  Seal of Approval Award Winning Programs

PTPA Seal of Approval Award Winning Programs

We're delighted to announce today that our kids’ programs for Boston Pizza and Black Bear Diner have been awarded PTPA’s Winner’s Seal of ApprovalPTPA Media operates North America’s largest volunteer parent testing community, with over 70,000 parents. It is one of the most recognized seals in North America.

Parents looking for high-quality products and services can rest assured when they see the PTPA™ Winner’s Seal; it is evidence of a product’s excellence, having been evaluated by an unbiased group of parent testers.

Kidzsmart’s Boston Pizza and Black Bear programs were tested on levels of engagement, variety of activities and the overall family experience. Parents repeatedly commented on the great balance of solo and participative games featured in the menus, and many families took the booklets home. “We enjoyed it so much at the restaurant, and we've enjoyed it at our home, we've entered a fantastic draw and we've flown a paper airplane hundreds times since going out for family dinner – priceless,” commented one family. Parents also felt compelled to tell their peers, “I haven't ever told other moms to go to a restaurant for a kids activity package, but I did here, it is such a fun activity book, and it keep us interacting with the kids, love that.”

Kidzsmart was among many entries from across North America competing to earn the PTPA™ Seal. Independent parent volunteers evaluate products and services to ensure that PTPA™ winners are chosen based on merit and consumer experience – not on commercial considerations.
