Boppy® Play Products have earned the coveted Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA) Seal of Approval

New SlideLine™ Play Gym and Tummy Play® Pads earn rave reviews from parent testers

GOLDEN, CO (February 2, 2011) The Boppy Company is excited to announce that two of the new SlideLine™ Collection play products have been awarded the PTPA Winner’s Seal of Approval.  Both the Boppy® Flying Circus Play Gym and the Boppy® Tummy Play® Pad earned the coveted seal.  PTPA Media is North America’s largest parent community, with over 40,000 volunteer parent testers.

The Boppy® Flying Circus Play Gym and Tummy Play® Pad were among many entries from across North America competing to earn the PTPA™ Seal. Because independent parent volunteers evaluate these products in their own homes, PTPA winners are chosen based on merit and consumer experience – not on commercial considerations.

Both the Boppy® Flying Circus Play Gym and the Tummy Play® Pad earned rave reviews from the volunteer parent testers.  Both products feature the unique SlideLine toy adjustment system that allows toys to be perfectly placed (and moved) exactly where baby will enjoy them most.  This great feature makes these gyms very versatile for babies from birth to nine months.  In addition, both include generously oversized play mats, mini Boppy pillows for playtime and adorable toys to engage and delight baby.

Being honored with the influential Seal of Approval from PTPA Media Inc. is a huge achievement for a product geared to families, children or parents.  “We are thrilled to have been awarded the PTPA Seal of Approval for our new SlideLine™ Play Products,” says Nancy Bartley, CEO of The Boppy Company.  “At The Boppy Company, we understand how important playtime is for development.   Our new SlideLine™ Collection play products are specifically designed to make playtime comfortable and fun for both mom and baby.”

  “At PTPA Media, we are proud to play a role in certifying innovative products that families can trust,” says Sharon Vinderine, CEO and founder of PTPA Media Inc. “When consumers search for our Seal of Approval on product packaging, they are essentially searching for validation from their peers.  Their peers will have objectively tested and approved these products based on their performance in a real life environment. That type of resource for families is priceless.”

Consumers looking for high-quality products and services can rest assured when they see the PTPA Winner’s Seal; it’s evidence of product excellence as evaluated by unbiased parent consumers.

The Slideline Collection is available at a variety of retailers where the Boppy® Pillow is currently sold. For more information, visit
