Nancy Drew: Codes & Clues

The Nancy Drew Clues and Codes app was a huge hit with our parent and child testers. The graphics are very cute and well-done. The sound quality is great and the game is easy to navigate. Parents especially liked discovering a fun way to introduce coding to their children. Kids were engaged from the start, excited and thrilled to be able to help Nancy and her friends solve a mystery that spans six chapters. This all happens immediately because as soon as the app opens the story line starts and immediately draws your child in. After Nancy explains the mystery it is up to your child and her friends to find the clues and then create the code to help her dog (which your child gets to name) solve the mystery. As you progress through the game there are lots of fun seek and find activities. The coding part of the game is picture based and simple to understand. Along with coding, this app will help foster spatial recognition and get your child thinking about problem-solving. Also, while playing your child will beam with pride and a sense of accomplishment after clues are found.

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

SPRING '22

FALL ‘22

HOLIDAY ‘22

Testing Begins

February 15th

June 1st

Testing Ends

July 31st

October 30th

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.
