Lovely Lisa & Friends

Lovely Lisa & Friends

A video game for the Nintendo DS that is strictly for girls. No, really! And it isn’t all make-up and hairdos, although they are there. We would be remiss if we didn’t mention the tester favorite the nail polishing. But it isn’t all glamor and primping. Testers loved the fact that there was a career …

Mini Ninjas

Mini Ninjas

The video game universe is filled with so many creative entries but this one surely has carved out its own little niche.

Disney Pixar UP

Disney Pixar UP

Leapster’s association with Disney certainly carries with it some serious appeal based on the reactions of our young testers who were eager to play. The anticipation of being able to interactively experience the hit movie for themselves was rewarded but not without some of LeapFrog’s educational elements thrown in for good measure. A nice feature …

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 Testing Begins Submission Deadline Testing Ends Report Issued
SPRING ’23 February 15th March 10th April 24th May 10th
FALL ’23 June 1st June 23rd July 31st August 16th
HOLIDAY ’23 September 1st September 22nd October 30th November 15th

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.

FYI about the Seal of Approval

* Winners of the Seal will be announced in a media release which is distributed to over 4700 media outlets including Facebook, Mommy bloggers and TV station websites.

* The report is forwarded to buyers at over 350 major retail and on-line stores including Amazon, Walmart and Target. Amazon features Seal winners on product pages.

* Each report is featured at TNPC’s web site as well as TNPC’s Twitter & Instagram accounts and Facebook Page.

* Links to company websites and a license to utilize the trademarked Seal of Approval artwork on marketing, packaging and web design are available exclusively to Seal winners for additional fees.

* Submitting a product does not secure or guarantee being awarded a Seal of Approval
