Hide Inside Mixed by Me Kit

Hide Inside Mixed By Me is a fun and unique arts and crafts kit that combines making and creating along with a fun element of play. What your child is creating is their own search and find game with the provided mix-ins. It is easy to use and is great for those moments when you feel your child would benefit from some calm, quiet time. The kit comes with three tins of Crazy Aaron’s clear putty and 5 different sets of little plastic mix-ins in fun themes such as vegetables, sweet treats, and animals. The idea behind the “hide inside” theme is that they can “hide” a handful of items that don’t fit the theme and then search for them as they play with the putty. For example, they could mix in all of the dessert items and then add in 5 different animals. Then your child can decorate a label and put it on the included putty tins, so they know what they’re looking for later. For example, they might draw animals eating desserts or simply write something descriptive, so they know what to hunt for at later times. And because there is such variety in the items they can mix in, the possibilities are endless. Initially, some parents thought this would be a messy project (thinking slime and glitter) but were pleasantly surprised to see that was not the case. The clear putty is very similar in consistency to traditional silly putty and not at all slime-like. Also, unlike slime or other colored putties, this will not leave marks if left on furniture.

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.
