46507 (I-Newswire) November 30, 2012 - NogginStik Developmental Rattle by SmartNoggin, Inc., Bristol, Ind., has been named the a 2012 National Parenting Publications Award (NAPPA) gold winner in the children's toys category. The NogginStik is the first offering from SmartNoggin, a newly launched developmental toy company that advocates for early education for children birth to age five.

"We are honored to have received this award," said Marcia Haut, SmartNoggin president. "Parents, therapists, home visitors and caregivers have given us an overwhelmingly positive response to the NogginStik, telling us it has helped them begin encouraging their infants beginning milestones, and has promoted early interaction and bonding with their child. However, it is also enormously gratifying to be recognized by a leading advocacy group like NAPPA, as a toy they feel captures the essence of what should be in the hands of children today."

NAPPA's independent panel of expert judges evaluated hundreds of submissions for their innovation, quality, educational and entertainment values in the recent NAPPA Children's Products competition. Seventy-five products were selected to receive the esteemed gold award, while 47 received silver and 42 were chosen as honor award winners.

"Consumers are being bombarded by so many children's products these days," said Julie Kertes, NAPPA general manager. "NAPPA's purpose is to filter through the volume and deliver only the best toys, books, games, DVDs, CDs and virtual products to parents."
A complete list of all 2012 NAPPA Children's Products winners will be posted online at on November 1, 2012.
