SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Holiday 2020

Dog Crimes

Dog Crimes is a wonderfully original and fun game for kids of all ages, in some cases and in some households even younger than the age range of 8 and Up. The game is quick and easy to set up and understand. You’ll be playing within very few minutes. The characters, all dogs, are cute and lovable, and the puzzles are well explained and fun to solve. The object of the game is to figure out who did “it” by reading the card and placing the correct dog character in front of the space the card describes. Players of all ages will be called on to use and develop their logic and critical thinking skills. Based on the age of the player, listening, reading and comprehension skills will be part of the game play experience. Parents told us it was always extra special watching the lightbulb go off as their children figured out who is guilty. Even though it is described as a single-player game, multiple players can definitely work together to solve the crimes as a team. The crimes are very gentle mishaps, nothing to be worried about with younger players. They are all sweet and lovable behaviors that you may encounter when sharing your life with a beloved pet. The box is sturdy, as are the game’s pieces, which are made of high quality, thick cardboard. The plastic insert with compartments is simple but well-made, with no extra space that is left unused, making the game compact and easy to store. Every piece has a spot and is easy to assemble and disassemble. At a price point of only $14.99 testers called this a no-brainer when it comes to picking games and gifts this holiday season.

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:

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.
