Timonium, MD – The Parents’ Choice Foundation in conjunction with Parents’ Choice Awards Committee has selected the MY Train® Spelling Car, from the Montgomery Schoolhouse division of Maple Landmark in Middlebury, Vermont, as an Approved Award winner for 2003.
Established in 1978, the Foundation’s purpose is to search out and recommend products that help kids grow – imaginatively, physically, morally and mentally – fairly priced products that are fun, safe and socially sound.
“The Parents’ Choice Awards received strong entries this season; (Maple Landmark’s) work is among the small percentage selected to receive a Parents’ Choice commendation” said Claire Green, Parents’ Choice Foundation President. Fewer than 15% of all items submitted to the Parents’ Choice Awards program receive a commendation in one of the six award levels: Approved, Recommended, Silver, Gold, Classic, and Fun Stuff.
Engineered for fun and education, the newly created Montgomery Schoolhouse MY Train Spelling Car can spell over 36 words and sound combinations helping even the littlest engineer find success in reading. The MY Train Collection has been a staple in the Montgomery Schoolhouse product line for over 15 years. Each 6-1/2" long car (and there are 21 in all) is an activity in itself making a wonderful blend of playtime and learning time.
This marks the first time the MY Train® Collection has received this kind of recognition. “We are pleased by the award, we always knew that the MY Train Collection was a wonderful product to grow with”, said Mike Rainville, President of Maple Landmark.
