SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2021

GeoStix Letter & Construction Set

The GeoStix Letter and Construction Set is an exceptional learning toy. Right out the box, testers noted that the appeal was sky-high. These are colorful sticks that your child can use to make shapes and letters. This isn’t a revolutionary or especially new entry to the market, but Edx Education does it so well with their design of connecting sticks. The included guide cards are self-explanatory and easy to follow with a series of fun pictures and color matching directions. Along the way, this simple educational toy teaches so many things. Colors, letters, matching, hand-eye coordination, direction following, fine motor skills counting, and of course, it encourages endless creativity beyond the direction cards. GeoStix Letter & Construction Set is engaging and holds onto children’s notoriously short attention spans for extended periods. Parent testers were delighted to discover an educational toy that truly engages their children. The set itself is very well made and quite durable. The pieces are bendable and resist breaking or becoming forever misshaped. It is also quite versatile in its age range, allowing for simple designs to advanced ones for older children. The set is compact; everything is contained in a small plastic container that latches closed. The latch is easy enough for a child to open yet still secure enough so you don’t have to worry about it opening by mistake and having the pieces fall everywhere. Parents agreed that GeoStix are well made, fun, educational, and set at a great price point.

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

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.
