Crazy Letters

If you have older children at home and you are fans of turning off the electronics to sit down and play games then Crazy Letters by MindWare should get some serious consideration for insertion into your game rotation. Inside the box you will find approximately 500 cards divided and color-coded into five categories of word jumbles. What makes this game so unique and challenging is that the letters of the word are not jumbled but they are printed specifically to throw you off. The letters appear as mirror images, backwards, you’ll find capital letters in the middle of the words and various colors so even though the words are spelled correctly and there is no scrambling of letters, it’s all designed to throw off players by tricking their eyes. This is not an easy game, perhaps that’s why there is a genuine excitement when you can yell out the answer first. Testers found it fascinating to see how each person approaches solving the challenge differently. Some cards come so easily to one person while others were challenging and vice versa.

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.
