SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Holiday 2019

Portable North Pole

The Portable North Pole toy set is a fun, interactive collection of participatory activities designed to enhance your family’s Christmas. This is actually a big, broad experience with multiple pieces and parts that make up the foundation of a whole new way to enjoy the spirit of the season. The premise here is to encourage good deeds and behaviors that are examples of earning a spot on Santa’s nice list. Choosing good deeds leading up to Christmas adds to the festivity as both kids and adults are inspired to be kind and helpful. The plush toys are adorable and set the tone with a familiar feeling of characters we all associate with the holiday. Elves, reindeer…you get the idea. There are reading and activity books as well as a game that will help parents dole out more and more fun leading up to the big day. The daily challenges for the game are easy to follow, and along the way, kids (and adults) collect stickers on their game posters. A big, fantastic bonus is the Santa app, where your child will receive personalized messages and videos from Santa who addresses them by name! There is so much involved in this whole concept that it’s impossible to cover it all here. Suffice to say that testers were enthusiastic about finding a new, interactive experience to weave into their holiday.

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.
