SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Fall 2014

Mix or Match Vehicles

This is a play set that admittedly caught many of our testers by surprise. They had never heard of Popular Playthings and the packaging is a little vague about what kind of play experience is inside. Once they opened the box their opinions quickly changed. They were pleasantly surprised at the quality and overall look of the vehicles which are constructed extremely well using very hard plastic. The colors and design are appealing to both parents and kids. The magnets that connect the vehicle pieces are very strong yet somehow are still easy to pull apart. After two months of very vigorous product testing the magnets are just as strong as the first time we played with them. There are so many vehicle options for kids to build by matching pieces. There is the plane/boat, the plane/boat/car, you get the idea. Kids really got a kick out of dreaming up new configurations.

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:

Report Period

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.
