Green Kid Crafts is a winner of the Academics’ Choice Brain Toy Award in the Toy category. The Academics' Choice Advisory Board consists of leading thinkers and graduates from Princeton, Harvard, George Washington University, and other reputable educational institutions. Product-appropriate volunteer reviewers, combined with the brainpower of the Board, determine the coveted winners. Entries are judged by category (i.e. mobile app, toy, book, website, magazine, etc.), subject area, and grade level, and evaluated based on standardized criteria rooted in constructivist learning theory.
Being honored with the influential Seal of Approval from Academics’ Choice is a huge achievement for a product geared to families, children or parents. “Receiving the Academics’ Choice Brain Toy Award means so much to us because the award is based on real, unbiased parent feedback,” notes Penny Bauder, Green Kid Crafts founder and CEO. “We are honored to join the ranks of other trusted brands and companies that also bear the Academics’ Choice Seal.”
