SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2017

Mc2 Lip Balm Lab

Over the years parents have repeatedly told us that they are always on the prowl for toys or crafts that can subtly introduce science in a fun, relatable way. That must be the reason they reacted so positively to this new kit from Horizon Group. The whole concept of Mc2 is showing girls that science is cool, science is for them, and science is all around them in everyday items. Helping girls see that there is even science involved in girlie things like lip balm really resonated. Inside the colorful package, which parents felt would really stand out on a store shelf, are brightly colored, high-quality tubes with appealing labels already affixed. It comes with wax and instructions on how to melt the wax as well as flavors. Four flavors come with the kit – vanilla, tropical, strawberry, and watermelon. These flavors can be combined in any combination or used on their own. Girls loved being able to make multiple colors in one tube. The flavors are very appealing to young girls and the corresponding colors turn out beautifully. This kit also comes with lip shimmer that you can add to any flavored lip balm for a shimmery effect. This was a favorite of our young testers.

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.
