SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Fall 2017

Bulls and Bears

If you have ever wondered what Monopoly on steroids would look like you’ll want to check out Bulls and Bears. This is a high-end, complex game that goes deeper than any stroll down Boardwalk ever could. Lets start with the playing board which is bright and colorful. The instructions are easy to read and engaging, which goes a long way in making the idea of a finance game of this type a little less daunting. There are knowledge cards full of fascinating, real-world occurrences. This really got players thinking about historical events that they recall but now within the context of the game, like how it affected the stock market, etc. Based on these cards players “bet” money based on the level of confidence they have in their answers. Parents felt this game was firmly rooted in real world concepts, which requires both an understanding of history and skills for the future. With that said it is also competitive and fun, in order to win, you need health insurance, property insurance, a house and more, you know, adult stuff. These are valuable lessons which testers said seemed to stick with their kids who stayed focused and engaged.

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

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.
