Press Release: Academics’ Choice Announces Top Educational Products of 2013

Discover The Year’s Best Mind-Building Media & Toys

Aptos, CA, December 4, 2013: Academics’ Choice today announced the winners of the 2013 Academics’ Choice Awards, a prestigious seal of educational quality, reserved only for the best mind-building media and toys. The independent Academics’ Choice Awards program and its seal of excellence are recognized worldwide by consumers and educational institutions as a mark of genuinely effective learning tools that stimulate the mind, and provide potential for the student to fully develop higher order thinking skills. The full list of winners is posted online at

The Academics’ Choice Advisory Board consists of leading thinkers and graduates from Princeton, Harvard, George Washington University, and other reputable educational institutions. Product-appropriate volunteer reviewers, combined with the brainpower of the Board, determine the coveted winners. Entries are judged by category (i.e. mobile app, toy, book, website, magazine, etc.), subject area, and grade level, and evaluated based on standardized criteria rooted in constructivist learning theory.

“We are extremely happy and honored to receive this award for A Jazzy Day!!” – Daniel, The Melody Book

“Science has proven that we can enhance our cognitive abilities throughout our entire lives. Academics’ Choice Awards was founded on this premise, with the mission of helping us all improve our thinking and decision-making skills, to make the world a smarter, more thoughtful place. We were very impressed with this year’s submissions—from deductive reasoning puzzles to early reading and foreign language programs—we are extremely proud to showcase the world’s best mind-building media and toys.” – Stephanie Howard, Marketing Coordinator, Academics’ Choice Awards.

The hundreds of submitted products that are not chosen by the Academics’ Choice Awards team (and many that are chosen) are donated to a variety of worthy charities and other organizations across the globe.
