Garfield’s Comic Boom and FlipBoom All-Star Earn the PTPA

Montreal, Canada - October 18, 2011

Toon Boom Animation Inc. announced today that both Garfield’s Comic Boom and Flip Boom All-Star have both been awarded the PTPA Winner’s Seal of Approval. PTPA Media is 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’s evidence of product excellence as evaluated by unbiased parent consumers.

Both Garfield’s Comic Boom and Flip Boom All-Star were 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.

Being honored with the influential Seal of Approval from PTPA Media Inc. is a huge achievement for products geared to families, children or parents. "Garfield's Comic Boom and Flip Boom All-Star deliver tremendous edutainment value, we are excited parents who tested these products awarded them the Seal of Approval!" shared Joan Vogelesang, President and Chief Executive Officer at Toon Boom Animation.

The PTPA Seal of Approval is an outstanding addition to Garfield’s Comic Boom and Flip Boom All-Star’s impressive award-winning track record. Recently, Garfield’s Comic Boom was awarded the 2011 Preferred Choice Award and Flip Boom All-Star the 2011 Media Of The Year Award, granted by Creative Child Magazine. In 2010, Flip Boom All-Star was granted the prestigious Honors Award by the National Parenting Publications Awards (NAPPA), in the software category, as well as the Parents’ Choice Silver Award.
