SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Holiday 2016

Gallop & Rock Learning Pony

The evolution of the rocking horse continues with this new toy from VTech. This pony can be both a rocker and a roller. With the removal of a plastic bolt (very easily done) the bottom can be flipped from the side with a rounded rocking edge to the one with wheels for rolling and scooting. Testers felt that this was a toy that could last years through the multiple developmental stages of their children and probably as well as for other children down the line. Since this is VTech, the pony also features electronic, interactive features. There are 60+ songs, interactive phrases (activated by three colored, light-up buttons) and a motion sensor. The melodies are catchy, cute, and if you listen closely, they are actually educational. The pony verbally encourages your child to rock and ride, hop in the saddle, etc. We all had a blast watching kids excitedly react to its prompts. The pony is sturdy, easy to wipe down and really quite adorable. It requires batteries, but VTech provides them, and they were still going strong after nearly two months of continuous use.

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.
