SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2010

Facechipz


Facechipz is a wonderfully inventive idea that offers a safe bridge for tweens who want to be a part of the social networking sensation, but who aren’t ready for the big world of Facebook, Twitter and the like. What makes Facechipz different is that kids can ONLY communicate with friends that they have personally exchanged Facechipz tokens with, and the site is sealed so that search engines cannot access it. A Facechip look like a poker chip with a unique code imprinted on it. Once the friend activates it the Facechipz database confirms the friendship and the two are linked. The code then becomes invalid for future use. While on the site children can upload photos, update their status, play games, message their friends and tailor the experience with various backgrounds. It’s just like the big kids but with safety measures that parents thought were excellent.

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.
