The Parent’s Choice Foundation chooses recipients based on multiple criteria including developmentally appropriate content, the product’s design and function, the educational value, long-term play value, and the benefits to a child’s social and emotional growth and well-being.

All proceeds from the sale of Shabbat Shindig with Penny go to the scholarship fund for the JCC’s Shalom Children’s Center.
