The Mr. Dad Seal of Approval recognizes outstanding products that bring dads & children together.

SAN FRANCISCO: The holiday rush is in full swing and for parents that means making mad lunchtime- or after-work dashes to the toy store, department store, sporting goods store or frantically searching online to find gifts that will entertain, teach and strengthen family relationships.

“Next to ‘I love you, Daddy,’ some of the sweetest words a father can hear are, ‘Hey Dad, can we play that again?’ As our children get older, it gets progressively harder to find activities to do with them,” says Armin Brott, bestselling author and founder of”We created the Mr. Dad Seal of Approval to help dads (and those who love them) identify top-quality, fun products and services that will help them and their children stay connected at every age. Each recipient has been field tested by other dads to ensure that it truly has that play-it-again factor.”

The Mr. Dad Seal of Approval is trusted by some of the toy world’s biggest brands—including Lego, Haba USA and the Magic Schoolbus Series—as well as a host of smaller companies.

“Although we’ve won many awards, I am most excited about the Mr. Dad Seal of Approval,” said Craig Olson, creator of the Baffle Gab board game. “Your Seal of Approval assists Dads around the country to identify games that bring families together for quality time while having fun and learning. A great combination!”

Four times a year, Brott and his team evaluate and honor products and services that support Mr. Dad’s mission: give men the resources, tools and information they need to be the fathers they want to be—and that their families need them to be.
