PAL Awards

Established by respected speech and language expert Sherry Artemenko, the PAL Award recognizes exceptional toys, games and books that, through their design, content, quality, and character, promote play that advances language. PAL winners in the hands of kids spark fun and creative play with lots of talk!

Products, chosen on the basis of over 30 years practical child development experience, are complemented by coaching in thoughtful reviews, showing parents how to best use each toy, game or book to build language.
