SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Fall 2017

ALEX Discover Ready, Set, Space

ALEX Brands have become a diverse collection of products over the years but when you ask most of our testers they will tell you that they associate ALEX most with great craft kits. Ready, Set, Space falls right in that sweet spot offering up 13 unique craft activities. Parents appreciated that the box includes everything you need, from the glue stick to the crayons and everything in between. The theme offers up an excellent way to introduce and teach kids about planets, the solar system, moon phases, constellations and other space-related topics. The instructions for each activity are clear and each project is unique. Favorites included the sundial, the moon phases project and the mobile planet activity, which teaches the names and essential characteristics of the different planets. The packaging for this product is both colorful and appealing. There are images of the materials included and the finished projects. You will get a good idea of what to expect and parents told us that goes a long way in helping them decide whether a kit is appropriate for their child.

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.
