SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Holiday 2012

Captain McFinn and Friends Rock!

If you haven’t had the opportunity to make the acquaintance of Captain McFinn and his Friends, it’s high time you and your children do. This series of books really impressed testers with its positive message, colorfully engaging books and creative characters that are both appealing and intriguing. The morals are strong ones that parents were happy to impart to their children whether at bedtime or any other time of day. Bullying is the key message in this story but there are always underlying themes throughout the series that include environmentalism, friendship, kindness, respect and even something as lofty as being dedicated to the bigger picture instead of the self. What made all this messaging work is the manner in which the story is told, nothing is heavy-handed but as the tale unfolds and is retold, parents reported that it was obvious to them that the messages were sinking in.

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.
