SAN FRANCISCO, March 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BabyCenter®, the #1 pregnancy and parenting digital resource, today announced the winners of its annual Moms' Picks Awards, the best gear and products as decided by parents. Through an online voting event that generated nearly 95,000 votes, parents bestowed best-in-class honors on 20 products.

According to a new study from BabyCenter, moms note safety (92 percent), quality (92 percent), low price (89 percent), and positive recommendations from other parents (77 percent) among their top purchase criteria.

"Shopping for baby and toddler products is time-consuming, expensive ($5,000 on average for the first year), and stressful. We all want the best gear our money can buy, but sorting through the thousands of options out there is tough. Parent recommendations are a great shortcut, and that's why BabyCenter created the Moms' Picks Awards," said Linda Murray, BabyCenter Global Editor in Chief. "Each year tens of thousands of parents vote on their favorite baby and toddler products and we share the winners. Moms' Picks Awards go to the products that rise above the rest when it comes to safety, durability, value, and style. Safety and reliability are always the top criteria, but today's parents also want whimsy and style – for example, the winning baby bathtub this year is a big yellow inflatable duck."

To quench moms' thirst for information, relieve some of their anxiety, and simplify the decision-making process, BabyCenter has created the ultimate parent-driven product-recommendation engine.
