Mix & Match-a-Saurus

Vtech has developed yet another wonderfully engaging learning experience for toddlers, which should come as no surprise to anyone familiar with the brand. The Mix & Match-a-Saurus comes in a brightly colored, eye-catching package that ramps up children’s excitement and eagerness to play. The instructions are easy to follow, but the item is really quite self-explanatory. The Dino comes with nine different tiles that can be mixed and matched. The tiles not only have word descriptions, but also picture descriptions for each emotion, music, and character displayed so that children can place the tiles purely based upon a visual reference. The product also includes a nicely sized “Dino-Egg” storage case for the tiles when they are not in use. Placing the tiles into and taking them out of the various shapes was easy for little hands, a nice implementation of activities that enhance fine and gross motor skills. The interactive lights and buttons provide great stimulation and feedback. Experimenting with the different combinations of tiles results in the Dino moving, dancing, singing, and talking, which delighted both children and parents. The Mix & Match-a-Saurus proved itself to be durable enough to withstand toddler play. Batteries are included so it is immediately ready to roar, dance and laugh with. Parents felt that the suggested price was right in line with what they would expect to pay for a product of this caliber.

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:
