The Oppenheim Toy Portfolio has been putting its seal of approval on children’s toys and media since 1998. They don’t charge entry fees or take advertising dollars from manufacturers, so you can be sure the award winners are picked by their merit alone. Following are the platinum award-winning DVDs (videos) and CDs (audio) for preschoolers (ages 2-6).
Platinum Award Winning Preschool Videos
A 3 disc collection containing 17 classic children’s stories narrated by celebrities. This set includes Is Your Mama a Llama? and Rapunzel, and features narration by Meryl Streep and Sarah Jessica Parker, among others.
Platinum Award Winning Preschool Audio CDs
A keepsake volume of eight illustrated children’s books and accompanying CD. The classic collection includes Sheep in a Jeep, Curious George and the Firefighters, Martha Speaks, Lyle Walks the Dogs, Tacky the Penguin, Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed, The Great Doughnut Parade and Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel.
Since Preschool Universe is all about preschoolers, I have only listed the winners that are recommended for kids in this age group. To see the other recipients of the Oppenheim Portfolio Awards, please visit their website.
