SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Fall 2012

Jake and the Never Land Pirates Who Shook Hook

This creative new board game was a hit with young testers but more importantly in the eyes of parents, this was a game that appealed to boys and girls equally. With bold, colorful graphics they were intrigued and eager to play. The game is all about strengthening fine motor skills, understanding balancing principals and using various manipulative tools and techniques to keep Captain Hook on his hammock. The instructions are clear and concise so it was easy to start playing right away. There is also a really nice feature to increase the difficulty for older children. Hook’s hammock is held on by a rubber band, by adjusting the tightness of the band it becomes either harder or easier to keep the captain on his bed. This adjusting flexibility led parents to believe that the life of the game would be extended.

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:

Report Period

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.
