SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Holiday 2013

Melt n Mold Factory

Repurposing crayons is a fun, creative and environmentally friendly concept that parents liked introducing to their children. With this new craft kit from Crayola, old crayons are melted down and shaped into rings. The system is easy to setup and begin using within minutes of opening the nicely designed and super appealing package. The results are not instant since there is melting and cooling involved. Parents called this a lesson worth learning. When the waiting is over the output is worth the wait. Once the rings were cooled and ready to wear there was a very apparent pride and satisfaction with their new bling. Parents were divided about the level of adult supervision needed here, meaning that this is a call you will have to make based on your children. What they did agree on was that this is a perfect introduction to recycling. They loved how easy and natural it was to then carry the lessons learned here to recycling paper, aluminum, glass, etc.

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.
