SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Holiday 2016

Portable Baby Sound Machine

An adorable sound machine and ideal great travel toy, Big Red Rooster really impressed testers. This is a small plastic monkey about five inches long with a plastic chain attached to the top. This monkey is equipped with a speaker and buttons on its belly. Two of the buttons are for volume and one is for length of time that the monkey will stay on. Parents can choose between fifteen minutes or thirty minutes. The rest are familiar fun sounds that babies enjoy including heartbeat, ocean waves, lullaby, white noise, and rainfall. They provide a good cover for other noises that might startle or wake a sleeping baby. It can be hooked onto the handle of a car seat or stroller so that it can travel wherever the baby is trying to sleep. The designers really thought of everything including making sure that the on/off button has to be pressed for at least three seconds. Why is this a great feature you ask? So that is won’t turn on accidentally and waste the batteries. Parents felt the price point was just right.

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:

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.
