SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Holiday 2012

Maxville Blocks

What a treat for our young testers to discover this wonderful assortment of wooden blocks with bold colorful artwork, graphic patterns and sparkles. ALEX has crammed over 30 blocks with faces, arms and feet into this early building set so that there is virtually no end to the imagination and manipulative play. The shapes are so unique and intriguing. Parents reported that their children were obviously stimulated by the colorful graphics and the textural feel of each piece. The development of spatial relationships and basic building principals is on full display here. With all that and the fact that the wooden pieces are so well made with solid wood and baked on paint that never showed even the slightest signs of wear, the scores and reviews were sky high for Maxville Blocks.

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.
