Exercises

Infants love to be active. Just give them the space and opportunity. For the three- to six-month-old, here are some suggestions:

1. Turn-over games. Babies never tire of being turned from front to back, and back to front, and on and on.

2. Kicking toys attached to the sides of his crib are great fun.

3. Putting him on the floor or in the playpen as often as possible allows him to creep and rock.

4. Get your baby up on his feet. He loves to stand supported. This develops leg strength and improves large muscle coordination.

Between six and twelve months, there’s a tremendous advance in physical development – standing, crawling, cruising and walking, wrestling and tumbling are wonderful exercises. Less carrying around, and more cruising and walking will make him stronger and more agile. Encouraging exercises early on will make it much more likely that your baby will continue to be physically active later on in life.

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

FALL ‘22

HOLIDAY ‘22

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.
