“Rarely do I see such an outstanding parent learning guide associated with a toy to maximize learning through play. Parents won’t run out of activities with this little friend,” said Sherry Artemenko, speech and language expert, and PAL Award creator.
The PAL Award recognizes exceptional toys, games and books that—through their design, content, quality and character—promote play that advances language. Criteria for the award include: opportunities to describe multi-sensory characteristics and actions for infants; flexibility for open-ended play and discussion; fosters interaction, dialogue and story telling; inspires imagination and creativity; and encourages pre-reading skills and critical thinking.
