SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2021


Hapinest Turtle Steps are an exceptionally fun activity for indoor and outdoor play! Parent testers felt confident that this product would be one that could easily transcend classic developmental stages. This is a high-quality item that can truly be used for any age, even younger than the suggested age. The turtle shells are easy to store and can simply be whipped out when the kids seem to have way too much energy that needs to be positively directed. The games that can be played on these adorable and brightly colored turtle shell shapes are endless. Not only is this product desirable for a wide range of ages, but parents/adults can differentiate the activities using the turtle shells based on the ages of their audience. This product and the game suggestions provided can help your child work on the development of gross motor skills (hopping, crawling, jumping, running, skipping), receptive language (listening and following directions), academics (color identification, number identification), expressive language (saying names of their turtle, colors, sizes). Playing is a child’s work, and what better way to learn these skills and even perfect these skills than while playing? The product comes in a sturdy box that includes 6 turtle shells with nonskid surfaces, so they are not slippery on the ground or floor they are placed on. Also included are a storage bag, a game idea card, cards for a game, and a spinner. It is simple, yet with some creativity, it can provide hours of fun. This would be a great purchase and definitely an activity that can be played repeatedly in a variety of ways! A great boredom buster!

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.
