SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2020

Airfort

So many of our parent testers told us that building forts was a childhood rite of passage that they remember fondly. Now, instead of cushions and other collected parts from around the house, with just an inexpensive box fan to inflate it, you can have an instant hideout or Airfort.* The product is made of a very durable parachute/tent material and comes with velcro tabs to attach to your box fan. It takes under a minute to inflate so excited and anxious children can get down to the serious business of imagination play in their fort. The fort is quite large, includes a mesh window, and can be entered into at any point by merely lifting the tent material and crawling in. The only drawback is that kids will most assuredly beg to camp out in the tent, which the company advises against because the fan must continuously run to keep in inflated, making it very breezy and cool inside the tent. Parents appreciated that the packaging was both minimal and appealing. *(NOTE: You can also use a table fan, but it will double the length of the inflation time)

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

Each submission must be accompanied by a $295 product testing fee (we offer multiple submission discounts). This fee covers the cost of testing, nothing more. It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
