SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Holiday 2012

Koosh Solar Recon Ball Launcher

Just the name alone indicated to testers that this was not going to be your everyday toy shooter. The Koosh Solar Recon looks and feels like a high tech, space aged device and the experience exceeded expectations. Koosh balls slide into a tube at the top and then get “charged” with light so that they glow in the dark! As you might imagine this threw the toy into the “totally cool” category pretty quickly. Parents loved that the Koosh balls were super soft and could not hurt even though they shoot out pretty fast and make a dazzling streaking effect in the dark. They also liked that the glowing balls were really easy to find. A final feature that must be mentioned, since it too drew plenty of oohs and ahhs, are the sound effects which are are very cool. Note to parents: that feature can be turned on or off.

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.
