Learning Ladybug

After two months of testing, parents agreed, Battat hit it out of the park with this wonderful, simple toy. The Learning Ladybug’s brightly colored design proved to be a kid magnet. The first thing parent testers noticed was how much information was on the box. There is a full explanation of how this toy can benefit your child’s speech and language growth while inspiring their imagination. The second was how gosh darn adorable and sweet the ladybug looks. If it weren’t for its hard shell, any child would want to cuddle with it.
The Learning Ladybug offers children the opportunity to practice fine motor skills and learn the names of colors and numbers. Each of the brightly colored pegs is numbered one through ten. The pegs are large enough for small hands to maneuver, much like the size of toddler-sized crayons. The ladybug’s wings have numbers next to the holes so that children can learn to match the colored pegs to their corresponding positions on the back of the ladybug. The ladybug’s wings are easy to open for little hands and provide a storage place for the colored pegs, so they don’t get lost when not in use. Battat also includes a story and play guide, which fits inside when the wings are opened. The storybook has adorable and colorful drawings and guides children to find the corresponding colored peg and insert it into the ladybug. Testers really liked having an accompanying storyline of a rainbow helping his new friend, the Ladybug. With the compartment to hold the pegs, this compact toy is easy to pack up for visits outside the home. And finally, it can be a great gift considering its very reasonable price point.

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:
