The Push Around Taxi has won the 2011 Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Platinum Award, joining the Pin Pals Bowling Set and Grill & Play Patio Cafe. Stephanie Oppenheim, co-founder of the independent consumer organization, Oppenheim Toy Portfolio, who has been reviewing children’s media since 1989, reviewed the Step2 Push Around Taxi and loved the product. She officially announced the Toy Portfolio Awards and featured few of the winners from each category on the TODAY show.
The Oppenheim Toy Portfolio’s Platinum is the highest level Stephanie gives out, and this award honors companies that are dedicated in producing engaging and educational toys for kids of all ages. Each toy is put through a testing process. Once the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio deems the toy is developmentally appropriate, fun and new, it is then sent to qualified family testers who provide honest feedback.
