Here we are again, the last testing period of the year is in the books and boy, did our testers find some gems. It is our pleasure to work with so many amazing companies producing such inventive, fun and inspiring products for both parents and children.

With that said, let's get down to it. The Holiday season is indeed upon us and for so many people in this industry it is THE most important time of the year. That make or break time that, in it's own way, determines if you find gold or coal in your stocking this year. Parents are sharpening their pencils and getting down to the work of figuring out what presents will make their lists.

When it comes to giving gifts that are memorable, desirable, cherished and enjoyed long past New Years Day, parents are increasingly looking for assistance in making the wisest choices. Reading the reviews offered by their parenting peers is often the first step in crafting a memorable holiday gift list. We're pleased that our reviews have become an important part in so many parent's annual Holiday planning. That is what the Seal of Approval program was created to do and has been doing since 1990. The companies and people behind the newest Seal winners have created products that really connected with our testers and are deserving of this award as well all of the benefits and recognition that come with the Seal. 
In our newly released Holiday 2019 Report you will be able to read all about a wonderfully diverse group of new products and services that now join winners from this year's Spring and Fall Reports as Seal of Approval winners.
As always, our goal is to educate and inform parents about the finest products being marketed to them and their children. You can find the reviews right from our home page at ,  from our  Facebook Fan Page  and keep up with our  Tweets   as well as our Instagram and  Pinterest   posts which we will be updating daily from now until Santa makes his globe-hopping journey. 
Our testers will be taking a well-deserved breather until next year when we open the doors for three rounds of Seal of Approval testing. We kick off 2020 in February so be sure to mark your calendars and  download your submission forms  well in advance.
From all of us here to all of you, we wish for you a season full of happiness, love and joy.
