The Doc McStuffins Pet Vet App and the Palace Pets Whisker Haven App are Tillywig Award Winners!

Brain_Child_hires_gold-e1420665221340I was excited to find out that two of the apps I worked on for Disney this year were just named 2015 Tillywig Toy & Media Award Winners!

The Doc McStuffins Pet Vet app won a “Brain Child” award. From Tillywig’s site, the “Brain Child” award is given to “exciting products that energize the mind while seamlessly blending fun and learning.” As if that wasn’t enough good news, the Palace Pets Whisker Haven app was awarded a “Top Fun” award. “Top Fun” awards go to “products that stand out in terms of exceptional design, construction, and play.”

“But what is a Tillywig Award?” you might ask. Good question! More from their site:

Each year, the Tillywig Awards Program delivers to consumers, retailers, and the media information on the best children’s products, parenting products, and educational products available in today’s marketplace.

Our reviews span products that include toys, games, mobile apps, maternity, baby, parenting, music, video, books, clothing & furniture, health, safety, and a host of other child-related items, both digital and physical.

Awards are given on the basis of group tests, the primary purpose of which is to evaluate the quality, efficacy, entertainment value, or educational value of the products submitted to us by manufacturers.

Congratulations to my editor on both projects, Juliana Schiavo, and to everyone on the Disney Stories team!
