SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2016

BuppaLaPaloo Bear

Well made, soft, cuddly and cute were the most common words used to describe this adorable plush bear. The big red heart standing out against the bright white “fur” calls out to anyone who see it, “Hug me!” This is more than just a plush play toy, it is an interactive experience. The intention behind the BuppaLaPaloo Bear is to empower children by promoting positive self-image. The bear accomplishes this by using powerful pre-recorded phrases emphasizing self-love when its right paw is squeezed. The message is well-conceived and parents felt good about the goal of helping children see the beauty within them. It also gives parents the ability to record a message of their own that their child can play back whenever they like. The child can record the message as well which they really enjoyed doing. The recording is clear, loud, easy to use, and really sounds like the speaker. The battery pack is sealed shut with small screws, so there is no danger of little hands getting a hold of those. This little bear emits love in every way, and testers just adored it.

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.
