SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Holiday 2016

Learn & Groove Musical Mat

LeapFrog has created a fun little activity mat for toddlers with bright, colorful circles that definitely appealed to our little testers. The mat features baby animal illustrations holding different instruments that play when stepped on. Each number/animal plays a different song, and then, while that song is playing, your child can step on the other animals/numbers to add that instrument to the song. While kids find the games fun, it also is effective at encouraging children to exercise by waving their arms, tiptoeing, jumping or stepping to different parts of the mat. Parent testers reported that the mat was extremely easy to set up, the buttons are responsive and, thankfully, there are 2 volumes available. Parents felt that the materials used will definitely hold up over time, are easy to clean (thanks to the soft fabric like plastic surface) ,and it won’t slip and slide on a hard surface since LeapFrog uses a thin foam underneath. A final appreciated feature was how small the mat can fold up when not in use.

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.
