SAN DIEGO PRLog – Green Kid Crafts is pleased to announce that their subscription service has been honored with the academics’ choice Brain Toy Award, a prestigious seal of educational quality, reserved only for the best mind-building media and toys. The independent Academics’ Choice Award program and its seal of excellence are recognized worldwide by consumers and educational institutions as a mark of genuinely effective learning tools that stimulate the mind and provide the potential for the student to fully develop higher-order thinking skills.


Academics’ Choice Brain Toy Award 

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.

Academics’ Choice Seal of Approval

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.”
