National Parenting Product Association names five Merrithew® kids' fitness products as recipients of National Parenting product awards

Toronto, ON, December 9, 2016 – Merrithew is pleased to announce that the prestigious National Parenting Product Association has named five Merrithew kids’ fitness products as recipients of National Parenting Product Awards (NAPPA). Merrithew’s Eco Mat for Kids—Pixel the Robot, Flying Foam Disks 2-pack (Blue & Yellow), Balance and Therapy Wedge for Kids, Yoga Block for Kids (Green) and Stability Ball for Kids (Green, 45cm) have received NAPPA Awards.

NAPPA enlists a team of independent, expert judges and family testers to review each submission thoroughly. Together, they select the most entertaining, appealing, safe, educational, age-appropriate and enduring products as NAPPA winners. A NAPPA recognition is more than just a seal of approval. It signifies that a product has been rigorously evaluated against stringent criteria and that it stands out among hundreds of similar products from around the world. Products that receive the prestigious NAPPA award are quality products that parents and professionals can trust.

Merrithew launched its kids’ product line in 2014 with the intention to inspire kids to be healthy by providing them with top-quality, safe products with fun, gender-neutral designs. Our kids’ products are free of toxins, heavy metals and phthalates, and encourage fitness in a variety of activities.

“We are honored to receive these NAPPA Awards for our kids’ fitness products,” says Lindsay G. Merrithew, President & CEO of Merrithew. “They highlight our strong commitment to providing the very best in fitness equipment for fitness enthusiasts of all ages.” For more information on Merrithew’s kids’ product line, visit
