SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Holiday 2020

Blockaroo

Blockaroo is a terrific foundational toy for growing minds, and great at helping to build a childs imagination and fine motor skill development. These foam building blocks do much more than just stack on top of one another; they easily connect to each other thanks to embedded magnets. The magnets are strong, making what a child builds stable, and allows for stacking without them falling over too easily. As strong as the magnets are, they are not overly strong; little toddler hands are still able to pull them apart when they want to create something new. When the magnetic blocks are attached, they can also rotate 360-degrees allowing for more possibilities to use imagination. The blocks have endless possibilities. One day your child might build a rocket ship that they dream of blasting off into space. Then when they get tired of rocket ships, they can easily take them apart and start over. Along with stacking, they can teach sorting by both color and shape and counting as well. All of these options make Blockaroo great for a wide age range of children starting at 18 months and lasting for a good many years. The endless possibilities allow for keeping a child occupied while learning for long periods. A huge plus with these blocks is that kids can play with them in the bath as well. Parents noted and loved that they are easy to clean. The instruction booklet gives lots of cleaning options, including the fact that they are even safe for the dishwasher’s top rack! Testers overwhelmingly agreed that Blockaroo is a great building set that is well worth the money and should be on your radar this holiday season.

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.
