SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Holiday 2013

One of the runaway favorites of this testing period was this interactive play mat from Creative Baby. Parents raved how this mat, with four interlocking sections, was engaging, inviting and just plain fun. There are animals and environments pictured on the thick rubber mat. The animals are divided by regions allowing your child to see where each lives. The beavers and whales are in the water. The lion and zebra are pictured on a desert type scene. The animals pictured are very cute and the environments they are set in are bright and colorful. When your child holds the pen over the animals the pen names them in a voice that is very clear and loud. Children can explore on their own and play a variety of preprogrammed activities, or you can make up your own games. There are three different languages to choose from: English, Chinese and Spanish. While this is not an inexpensive item, parents still described it as a great value.

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.
