Globetrotters Earn Coveted "Parent Tested, Parent Approved" Seal of Approval

The world famous Harlem Globetrotters, who have entertained over a 132 million fans of all ages during more than eight decades of touring, have become the first live-event entertainers to earn the coveted Seal of Approval from Parent Tested, Parent Approved (PTPA). The PTPA™ Seal is internationally recognized as a leader in certifying consumer products for quality, effectiveness and value.

The Globetrotters were among many candidates from across North America competing to earn the PTPA™ Seal. Independent parent volunteers evaluated the Globetrotters during their 2010 tour and decisively named the team’s live show a winner based on its wholesome family entertainment content and high quality of production.

“At PTPA Media, we are proud to play a role in certifying products that families can trust,” said Sharon Vinderine, president and founder of PTPA Media Inc. “The Globetrotters’ ability to keep both parents and children laughing and smiling throughout their show was equally as impressive as their amazing athletic ability. Deservingly, the Globetrotters’ show is the first live-event to earn the PTPA Seal and we are honored that they trusted us with their legendary show.”
