SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2016

Molkky

No one, and we mean no one knew what the heck Molkky was but it didn’t look like anything anyone had seen before so curiosity was peaked. So think bowling except in this game (which comes from Finland), instead of rolling a ball at pins, the player throws a “Molkky throwing skittle” at a formation of numbered “skittles”. Got that? You really have to spend just a little time with it and you’ll understand in short order. What our testers found after the initial introduction to the concept was a superb family game designed to be played outdoors. That means it’s ideal for summer camping trips and picnics at the park because it travels easily. Testers gave the highest marks for the quality of the pieces/wooden pegs which they described as impeccable. Each piece has a smooth surface that, even after numerous rounds of play, showed no signs of splintering or damage. We discovered that playing on a flat grassy surface worked best. You don’t need a huge space either just a grassy area that is about 10 feet by 5 feet. This might very well become your go-to outdoor game this summer.

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.
