SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2012

Groove Tube

Remember the frustration you felt the first time you tried solving a mind twisting puzzle like Rubik’s Cube? Remember the exhilaration you felt when you solved it? Meet Groove Tube. Our testers admitted that they had no idea what they were in for, either by the name or the look of the puzzle. When they got their hands on it and had to rely completely on their sense of touch to find the grooves to unlock the ring from the hub, it made sense, intuitively. It is a very solvable puzzle, but it takes patience and a level of trust in your sense of touch and your mind’s eye to solve. When you finally “feel” your way to the solution it is a triumphant moment for sure. Groove tube is a fun puzzle at a good price.

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

FALL ‘22

HOLIDAY ‘22

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.
