SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2022

All-Pro Passer

All-Pro Passer is a fun, active play toy that accurately launches a small, plastic football to simulate throws from a quarterback. Your child chooses the play (i.e., where the ball is going to be “thrown”), and the unit shouts, “Hike,” so they know to start running the route and get to the designated spot ready to make the reception when the ball is passed. The ball can launch as far as 25 yards making it an ideal outdoor activity. Parents loved that this encourages physical activity and encouragement to get outside. The age suggestion of 14+ is good, but after several months, the consensus was that it could be lowered to 8 or 9+. It is ideal for the novice football player who wants to get started with some route running and catching experience or for a more advanced player who wants a way to practice and improve their own skills. The controls are very intuitive and easy to understand, thanks to the illustrated instructions that are right on the toy’s base. Simply adjust how far you want the ball to be hiked by setting the dial to short, midfield, or long, then pick your choice of nine preprogrammed plays, prime the air pressure pump, and get ready to take off. We did have some issues with the design and weight of the ball. This ball will veer off course in windy conditions, sometimes quite wildly when running longer routes. Through trial and error, one of our testers recommended putting some gaffer tape on the back of the ball to give it a little more heft, and it worked! Parents told us that they had never seen anything like this toy before. Still, they appreciated its uniqueness and how it promotes a love of football, being active, and playing outdoors.

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:

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.
