SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2018

Biome Builder

Biome Builder is an educational experience disguised as a card game inside a small, colorful, box featuring beautiful thematic graphics of plants, animals, birds, and fish. Testers were impressed with the attention to detail involved in every aspect of this game from the earthy colored wooden tokens to the feel of the cards. The cards have a good amount of flex without bending, and the cards’ texture is easy to grip. The game consists of four biome habitats: Amazon Rainforest, North American Prairie, Sahara Desert, and the Pacific Ocean. The object of the game is to build food chains within these habitats from plant to apex predator. It will take some initial concentration to get the hang of it, and the instructions could stand some revision, but parents told us that patience pays off. Game play is roughly 10 to 15 min. which felt like a manageable, satisfying length of time. The game will absolutely stimulate conversation, and everyone will learn something they never knew.

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.
