SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Holiday 2012

Ansel & Clair Cretaceous Dinosaurs

We’re quite sure we have never seen any product priced under $2 come close to garnering the overwhelming enthusiasm and excitement as this app did from our testers. How did they love it? Let us count the ways: 1) It kept kids entertained for hours, 2) It takes full advantage of every sensory component of the iPad, 3) The visuals are stunning and completely immerse children in the experience, 4) It is crammed with information about this dinosaur period, 5) Your child can become a virtual paleontologist using on screen chisels, hammers and brushes as they hunt for fossils, 6) You can set up different accounts for each of your children so that they can set off and travel their journey at their own pace, create their own scrapbook of pictures and delve into areas that most interest them. We could go on but we think you get the idea. This is a superb example of what educational apps can and should be. Got an iPad and a dino loving kid? Get this app.

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.
