SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Holiday 2020

Purrfect Counting Purse

LeapFrog’s Pick Up & Count Vacuum is an easy to use toy that teaches children both colors and numbers through simple games, prompts, songs, and sounds. Parents were thrilled to find a vacuum toy that was easy to roll over hardwood but also not impossible to push along carpet. Testers were also delighted by the smaller sized, compact design. Not only does it not take up a lot of space, but all of the little “dusties” that come along with the toy (the small, round, colorful pieces the toy vacuums up) fit nicely into the dust bin, which attaches securely to the back of the vacuum. It’s always a big plus for parents when everything can be stored neatly together. As mentioned earlier, the toy’s audio features are crisp and easy to understand for little ears learning language and math skills. Your little one will be reciting the numbers and colors they hear while playing with the toy in no time, as the toy’s features make it extremely interactive and responsive to the child’s movements. Rather than merely reciting the same songs each time, the toy actually responds to the “dusties” the child picks up in the numbers and colors mode. It’s quite impressive. With the responsiveness of the toy, children are building their language and early math skills. From a value perspective, testers thought the price was more than appropriate. The bottom line here is that if you are looking for an easy to use toy that doesn’t take up much space but that teaches your little one as they play, your search might end here.

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.
