Nov. 24, 2009 - PRLog -- TORONTO (CNW) - PTPA Media .com – a website, which tests products by having volunteer parents use them in the real world, offer what they say is the most objective product rating family products, to Media, retailers and consumers. Products that make the grade receive the PTPA Media Seal of Approval, Parent Tested, and Parent Approved.  

Thousands of retailers and parents in search of the safest, kid-tested products, come to the PTPA web site for consumer purchasing advice.  Now they can go to the website and join with other parents in telling holiday gift makers the type of packaging they find annoying.

One parent tell this packaging horror story, “My worst was trying to open a game for my, at the time 2 1/2 yr old. Well that plastic is so tuff to tear and is quite sharp. I ended up bleeding all over the game and my daughter didn’t want to ever play that game again. She called it “bad daddy blood game”.

President, and mom Sharon Vinderine states, “Parents believe that opening toys, or other family holiday gift items should not require tools, or risk the shedding of blood when cut by sharp plastic. PTPA is publishing the winners list, as well as revealing what parents hate in packaging with hope companies are listening.”
