Electro Dough Projects Kit

Electro Dough Projects Kit is a wonderful tech project for kids that engages children’s minds and commands their attention. Calling this a “tech toy” is kind of a misnomer since it uses playdough, which might be the epitome of “low-tech” but we digress. The 20+ projects outlined for children to dive into upon opening the retro-designed box are cute and fun for all ages. It’s all about giving kids the opportunity to bring their playdough creations to life with electricity, which is definitely cool. Younger kids will need help and supervision, but older tech-savvy kids can do it all on their own. The kit offers enough material for a wide variety of projects, which parents felt were just the right level of difficulty and length to hold their interest. The website provides step-by-step instructions for building truly fascinating circuits using the playdough and material contained in the kit. Parents told us that this kit sparked questions, demonstrating just how their children were experiencing and thinking about what is happening and why. Tech Will Save Us provides clear answers, teaching kids about circuits, lights, sounds, and electricity. It really gives children the knowledge and vocabulary to understand how electricity navigates through a circuit, why it prefers going in a certain direction, etc. At only $29.99, parents felt this was a great value, one they would be recommending to their friends and family.

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.
