SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2015

Home Team, by Panasonic

Welcome to your next “must have” app. Testers described Home Team as the next wave of Facetime technology. It doesnt just allow for the face-to-face video calls we have come to know with Facetime, Hangouts, Skype and the like. Instead, Home Team gives you a fully interactive experience by adding the ability to read stories and play games together, all while looking at each other and chatting. The app comes loaded with activities for every age group – from basic memory matching games to chess. For traveling parents or grandparents, this provides a level of connection that we have never seen before. The library of books available is quite extensive and includes some favorites like Curious George. As for games, younger children loved matching and hidden objects. Testers told us that Home Team quickly became a favorite, with kids looking forward to “playing” with Dad on a business trip or grandma who is in Florida. The setup and connection are very straightforward so you will be up and playing in short order.

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.
