SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2016

Count & Learn Turtle

Many parents have told us that they have come to expect quality and ingenuity from Vtech products. The Count & Learn Turtle goes into the winners column, joining many other Vtech Seal recipients. From the outset testers liked the design of this teaching toy. The turtle’s face is friendly and the color is soothing. While there are a lot of sound effects and music with catchy melodies playing concurrently, the result isn’t cacophonous, plus it has two volume settings. There are several settings that teach to different developmental levels. A younger child can start learning how to say numbers and recognizing their corresponding numerals. An older child can practice addition and subtraction. Even when a child doesnt answer correctly or takes too long, the cheerful toy gives an encouraging remark and offers another try at it. There’s even a Spanish numbers portion. The turtle toy uses colors, patterns, visual aids and spoken cues for direction. Along with all of these elements, the toy has children using fine motor skills and hand eye coordination.

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.
