The judges based the results on different and reliable ways for children to learn, where Mystery was placed as a worthy contributor.
The special's US DVD however lost out to the likes of Babar and The Gruffalo's Child for a silver and gold award.
Andrea Blain Public Relations, Inc. explained more on the system in their latest press release.
The Foundation’s purpose is to search out and recommend products that help kids grow imaginatively, physically, morally and mentally – fairly priced products that are fun, safe, safe and socially sound.
Parents' Choice gave out their reasoning for the recommendation; Blue Mountain Mystery includes some flashback scenes and detailed exposition to explain the mystery elements, yet the plot isn't overly complex.
Young elementary-aged viewers and even older preschoolers will be able to grasp the storyline and understand the theme of compassion and the importance of not jumping to conclusions.
Young viewers also will enjoy the visually interesting quarry setting and action scenes that are gripping but not so tense that they're scary.
Blue Mountain Mystery: The Movie is now available to buy on DVD in the UK, Australia and New Zealand and also on Blu-Ray in the US.
