Earn the recognition of dad experts for your product or service.



Our  GreatDad.com seals recognize outstanding products that enhance the relationship between dads and their kids.

Here's how it works:

We give our seals to products and services that are great for dads and kids. After you send your sample, our panel members will use it, play with it, give it to our kids and, if worthy, we will award one or both of the seals from GreatDad.com and MrDad.com. We give the approvals after we have had enough time to evaluate the products, and then they are officially announced on our sites and in a press release. Armin Brott announces all winners on his weekly radio show and many of the winners in his weekly syndicated newspaper column to over 50 newspapers. Upon approval, we will send you an email with coded seals to use on your website and marketing materials.

A panel including Paul Banas, founder of GreatDad.com and Armin Brott, of MrDad.com, as well as other appropriate dad experts, will judge the product or service based on the following criteria:

  • Improves the quality of the time fathers and children spend together
  • Improves father child relationships
  • Helps dads be better parents and partners

The cost to apply to the two programs at once is a one-time fee of $149.95. Please note that this application and fee does not guarantee approval for either or both of the two seals.


Why should I apply:

We consider Mr. Dad/Great Dad to be the leaders in the honest evaluation of toys that would naturally appeal to dads and the often unique way that they interact with their children.

Rules and Guidelines:
* All text becomes the property of GreatDad LLC and MrDad.com.
* Nominations are taken for all product categories.
* To maximize potential for publication of your review, please follow these guidelines:

  1. Write the product description in a semi-objective style. Over-blown endorsements may require longer time for editing, which will delay a Recommends award.
  2. Do not use all caps or exclamation points. Please write in the third person as if you were an objective reviewer rather than as a press release.
  3. Please make the product description and rationale as original as possible. Use of previously published descriptions will also seriously delay a Recommends award. GreatDad.com reserves the right to edit product descriptions. GreatDad.com does not guarantee publication of submitted nominations. GreatDad only awards Recommends status on products we think are handy for dads and kids. Many of these products are ones we own ourselves.
  4. GreatDad chooses products and services nominations based on our personal assumptions about the quality of the product and usefulness to dads and kids.
  5. GreatDad will not approve nominations that we feel do not satisfy several criteria. The products should:
    • Improve the quality of the time fathers and children spend together.
