SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Fall 2012

Backyard Safari Lazer Light Bug Vacuum

If you have a child who is fascinated by bugs, both the flying and crawling type, you can be sure their eyes will light up when they see this cool vacuum for “collecting samples” for study. By using the suction, which is NOT on par with your vacuum cleaner, but much gentler to pick up smaller sized bugs, the specimens are trapped in a container that has a magnifying glass for some up close and personal time. The set comes with two holding containers so that multiple bugs can be studied. Mothers had some interesting reactions. They liked the educational value. They even liked that they could use it to capture and release bugs inside the house and set them free outside, but they did worry that their children would try the same capture and release method in reverse.

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:

Report Period

FALL ‘22

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.
