SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Go! Go! Smart Wheels Treasure Mountain Train Adventure

Testers were quite impressed with VTech’s Go! Go! Smart Wheels Treasure Mountain Train. Your train enthusiasts will love it, but the appeal reaches far beyond that group. The track can be configured in different ways, younger children will need help setting up the track and will happily watch the battery-operated train go around, but the older users will enjoy designing different track configurations. Since this is VTech there are lots of fun extras to be discovered. In the center of the track is a ball sorting contraption that is very well conceived. The balls come into play again with the crane lifter which parents noted was a good opportunity to introduce fine motor skills for young children. The set can be expanded with add on track pieces, but parents told us they didn’t feel like they needed to add more. While the suggested age is 1-5, testers felt that if your children fell in the middle (2-4) you would have a home run on your hands.

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.
