SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2022

Coding Critters® MagiCoders

Coding Critters Magicoders is a brilliant idea produced wonderfully by multiple Seal winner Learning Resources. Let’s start with the appealing packaging, which is very easy to open and assemble. There are two different themes in the line. Whether you choose the unicorn or the dragon, you will find a great introduction to coding with loads of actionable items. For parents doubting their own coding skillset, not to worry, the instructions are well written and easy to follow. Virtually every tester chose to dive in right away and started programming the unicorn/dragon to do tricks. A clear favorite was how the character will “chase after” or follow the ball. It’s really quite impressive. All the “tricks” are great fun, and testers reported that before long, their kids were able to do the activities unassisted. MagiCoder includes a variety of games rather than just a strict coder mode. This helps make the product more versatile and adaptable to your child. The controller is a great size for little hands and is easy for them to hold while moving their little fingers to input the command codes.

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

FALL ‘22

HOLIDAY ‘22

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.
