SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2013

iLearn “N” Play “Adventure Explorer”

Some iPads, iPods and iPhones offer add-on keyboards or speakers to expand the functionality of the device. For the younger set AppStart Learning has designed an add-on race car steering wheel that turns your device into something you might find in a video arcade. By securing the “i” device in the unit and downloading the two free app bundles your child is literally off to the races. To be sure this is not your traditional racing fare; each app features an educational angle such as word or number play. By navigating with the steering wheel the child wends their way through fun educational games that are both colorful and engaging. Parents appreciated how the app leveled up as the child progressed through stages of the games. Additionally they liked the sturdiness and durability of the unit which had to stand up to some pretty enthusiastic driving.

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.
