Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG Wins Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA) Seal of Approval


January 30th, 2012 – (El Segundo, CA)
– Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (Konami) is excited to announce that the best-selling trading card game of all time, the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME (TCG), has been awarded the Parent Tested Parent approved (PTPA) Winner’s Seal of Approval.

PTPA Media has North America’s largest volunteer parent testing community, with more than 40,000 parents. Consumers looking for high-quality products and services for their children can rest assured when they see the PTPA Winner’s Seal, they’re purchasing an excellent product that has been evaluated by unbiased parent consumers.

Konami’s Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG was among many entries from across North America competing to earn the PTPA™ Seal. Because independent parent volunteers evaluate these products in their own homes, PTPA winners are chosen based on merit and consumer experience – not commercial considerations. As a result, the PTPA Media™ Seal has quickly gained recognition as an international leader in certifying consumer products for quality, effectiveness and value. The media and parents alike trust the collective opinion that PTPA Media represents.

Being honored with the influential Seal of Approval from PTPA Media Inc. is a huge achievement for a product geared to families, children or parents. “We are thrilled and honored that parents and kids have chosen to give the Yu-Gi-Oh! TRADING CARD GAME their seal of approval. We strive to make the best products and to provide an exceptional game experience and community for our players and their families,” noted Yumi Hoashi, vice president of Card Business for Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.

“At PTPA Media, we are proud to play a role in certifying innovative products that families can trust,” says Sharon Vinderine, CEO and founder of PTPA Media Inc. “When consumers search for our Seal of Approval on product packaging and web sites, they are essentially searching for validation from their peers. Their peers will have objectively tested and approved these products based on their performance in a real life environment. That type of resource for families is priceless.”
