The Dot Girl First Period Kit® has earned the coveted Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA) Seal of Approval

(Seattle, WA – October 19, 2011) -- Dot Girl Products is excited to announce that The Dot Girl First Period Kit® has been awarded the PTPA Winner’s Seal of Approval.  PTPA Media has North America’s largest volunteer parent testing community, with over 40,000 parents.

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

Dot Girl Products was 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. As a result, the PTPA Media™ Seal has quickly gained recognition as an international leader in certifying consumer products for quality, effectiveness and value. Their CEO, Sharon Vinderine has appeared on over 40 morning shows as a reliable source for the latest and greatest in family products. The media and parents alike trust the collective opinion that PTPA Media represents.

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 honored to be awarded with the Seal of Approval from PTPA Media!  It validates our ongoing commitment to provide the best products and services to our customers”, stated Kathy Pickus.

“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 and web sites, 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.”
