Kiddie Village Wins the Gold & Honors Award

Kiddie Village, a new children's video creator, today announced the winning of both Gold and Honors Awards from the National Parenting Publication Awards (NAPPA), which recognize the top family-oriented products of the year. "Fun With Dance" won the Gold Award and "Let's Play Music" won the Honors Award. Both videos introduce babies & toddlers to the fine arts.

NAPPA winning products meet the most stringent criteria and are judged by nationally recognized experts. The NAPPA awards have set the industry standard of excellence for more than 15 years and are a sought-after honor by manufacturers, recording artists, publishers, and product designers. The NAPPA Award winners are featured in the November issues of United Parenting Publications (UPP) nationwide, which are read by millions of parents as an annual holiday shopping guide.

"Fun With Dance" (Gold Award), produced by acclaimed modern dancer Shannon Mulcahy Dinota, features dance segments and animations that inspire kids to join in. "This is a fun way to expose toddlers to movement in new and exploratory ways that promote creative learning, " states NAPPA's site.

"Let's Play Music" (Honors Award), produced by classical pianist and company CEO Shoshana Zisk, features beautiful classical and jazz music designed for small ears and introduces early musical concepts.

"The fine arts are wonderful for stimulating imagination and promoting individuality in small children, " states Shoshana Zisk, who credits her success in law and business to her fine arts education. "And we're thrilled to be recognized for our work, " states Brian Zisk, Kiddie Village co-owner. "Normally one would expect a huge company like Disney or Time Warner to win awards such as these. There's an added level of excitement that DVDs from a small town in Northern California are being recognized as the best of the best." Earlier this year, Kiddie Village earned The National Parenting Center "Seal of Approval" and The Film Advisory Board "Award of Excellence."
