SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Fall 2014

Green Toys Train

Parents flipped over this toy train that is made of 100% recyclable materials. But it wasn’t just the environmental appeal that led them to give high marks, they also appreciated the wonderful design. There are no sharp edges and the material feels both sturdy and smooth to the touch. This toy train it is larger than most trains so the size is just right for toddlers to handle. The steam engine comes with two cars which are very easy for younger children to attach and detach. The wheels are big which helps it roll evenly along tiles and carpet. There is plenty of room in the cars for additional passengers and cargo. There are no tiny pieces that break off, and it can be used both indoors and outdoors. The train is also easy to clean. This may be due to the smoothness of the surface but parents certainly appreciated how they could wipe it down with just water.

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:

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.
