Portage, MI (October 14, 2014) —Face to Face® Kids Edition, a conversation card game from Harvest Time Partners, has been named a 2014 GOLD winner from the National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA), one of the longest running and most respected awards programs serving the children and family market.
Each year, NAPPA enlists the help of expert judges, parents, and children who evaluate and play with hundreds of submissions to find the highest quality, most educational and entertaining products. Face to Face Kids Edition stood out for its ability to stimulate lively discussions on real-life issues. It helps build the critically important life skill of “Face to Face” authentic communication, encourages a high level of engagement, and reinforces principle-based decision making with the intent of developing a person’s character.
“We recognize products that are innovative, engaging and stimulating,” says Julie Kertes, NAPPA General Manager. “A NAPPA award-winning product is a product that parents can trust and kids will love. Parents want the best for their families and strive to make the best consumer decisions possible. Knowing that a product has been tested and deemed worthy of an award gives parents peace of mind that their dollars are well spent and, more importantly, that their children won’t be disappointed. We’re excited that the Kids Edition of Face to Face is joining this year’s list of award-winning products. With NAPPA’s vote of confidence, it’s sure to be a welcome addition to anyone’s gift list.”

We share a common mission to promote the importance of having effective learning tools that enhance open communication and create teachable moments for parents and educators.”
