SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2017

Klutz Jr. My Clay Critters

This craft kit appealed to so many testers for so many reasons. The critters your child creates are adorable, the clay is easy to manipulate and the colors of the clay are an attractive assortment including light blue, dark blue, white, yellow, orange and black. The clay is quite malleable and easy for small hands to mold and form. The set comes with all the extra pieces needed to create 10 sea critters. It also comes with a special shaping tool which emphasizes imagination and design. With this kit kids can follow simple step-by-step instructions to create their own underwater world. They don’t have to be able to read to make all the critters. There are simple illustrations with a picture of each piece needed to create the specific critter in a specific order. Parents felt that they could leave the child with all the parts and they would be able to put each one together on their own. All of this promotes confidence, fine motor skills, imagination and creativity. Testers found it to to be quite empowering and liked that the options are endless.

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.
