Mossworld Enterprises, Inc. of Troy, Michigan has been awarded the prestigious 2003 Seal of Approval by The National Parenting Center for their revolutionary children’s snack-cup. The Snack-Trap™ allows infants and toddlers to feed themselves finger snacks without the normal mess and spills usually left for parents, grandparents, and caregivers to clean up. The compact, handled cup is ideal for use at home, in the car, at the restaurant, in Church, or on the go. Parent reviews and additional information can be accessed at www.snacktrap.com.
The National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval program is an independent testing procedure conducted to judge a variety of products introduced and marketed to the parent/child consumer market. Testing involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period. Staffed by volunteers, the testing facility of The National Parenting Center gives parents, children, and educators the opportunity to examine a variety of submitted products. The testers are encouraged to play with, build, read about, and judge by the reactions of the children, each product’s quality. Evaluated are each product’s level of desirability, sturdiness, interactive stimulation and other ingredients essential in the make-up of a quality product. Test results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received from the parent/testers.
“My goal when I invented The Snack-Trap™ was to create an innovative product that addressed a basic everyday challenge facing parents. Infants and toddlers don’t eat, they snack, and when they snack they spill and make a mess,” states Christine Moss, President of Mossworld Enterprises, Inc. “Receiving the 2003 Seal of Approval is very gratifying and exciting as a businessperson, but especially as a Mom. The National Parenting Center evaluation progress is rigorous, they set the highest standards for children’s products, and we are thrilled to be included in the select group receiving the 2003 Seal of Approval,” she adds.
The Snack-Trap™ has a unique patent-pending top which allows infants and toddlers to get their hand in to retrieve snacks and then closes when their hand is withdrawn. The base cup features a tip-resistant design, and along with the unique lid, is durable to withstand drops and repeated daily use. Ms. Moss developed the product after encountering challenges keeping up with the spilled cheerios, goldfish crackers, and other snack foods her two young daughters left behind in their “wake.”
The Seal of Approval program continues the efforts of The National Parenting Center which was chartered in 1989 to help create better-informed parents as they tackle the challenges of parenting in the new millennium. The center is widely recognized as being a leading parent advocacy organization dedicated to providing parents with comprehensive and responsible guidance from the world’s most renowned child-rearing authorities.
