SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Fall 2012

NASCAR Bashers

We weren’t sure how parents would review this car that is designed to crash, after all that isn’t exactly something parents want to glorify, right? Well we missed the mark on this one. Parents told us that they get it, their sons love to crash cars and no matter what vehicle you gave them, they were going to crash them anyway. Why not give them something that crashes with a really cool explosive feature where all the parts come flying off the chassis? The key for parents was that there were no pieces to put back on or lose. Everything stays attached to the car and goes back together easily. So the cool factor is there, but being able to put it all together and start again was a breeze, which kids enjoyed as much as the crashing. Apart from the play value, parents noted how durable and solidly made the cars were and that they always performed as advertised.

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

September 23rd

Testing Ends

April 24th

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.
