SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Holiday 2014

Remember when the Segway was going to change the world? That might not have come to pass but now that Famosa has created a kid-sized version of upright transportation, using a foot pedal and buttons instead of kinetic movement, the segment might have some new life. The foot pedal controls the forward motion, while buttons on the handles let your child turn and execute some tight spins. You can even go backward when you press both buttons at once. The maximum speed is just 3.7 mph so no need to worry about kids zooming off. The Dareway is quite steady, sturdy and balanced. Traction from the plastic tires is a drawback, you will have to find a surface that the hard wheels can grip. Testers said that they hoped that Famosa would opt for rubber tires soon. The thing we heard most from testers was that no one had seen anything like this in the toy aisle. Both parents and kids were excited about being the first on the block to cruise up to the neighbor’s house in their Dareway.

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:

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.
