SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2013

Mix n Max – Stack Me Up

This toy is so visually appealing and texturally pleasing that babies would crawl across the room to play with it. The use of non-primary colors was a nice change for parents along with the interesting, contrasting patterns. Testers gave high marks for the quality of materials, design and construction. Even the Velcro that ALEX used garnered praise for being of a higher grade than what is often found this was softer and gentler and actually sewn onto the product, not glued. As for the play value, the set includes a squeaker, a stretchy arm, teether ears and crinkly legs, each of which got equal amounts of manipulative play and teething time.

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.
