SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Fall 2017

Razor RSF650

“Whoa, now THAT is cool!” We finally lost count of how many times we heard that from our testers, young and old, when they laid eyes on the RSF650. OK, it’s not exactly a catchy name, but without a doubt it’s an eye-catching new ride-on from Razor. This battery powered “motorcycle” was a tester magnet and the line up to take it out for a test ride was never-ending. This “toy” for your big kids, (please note the suggested age), will deliver the modified experience of riding a motorcycle but in a fashion that parents felt was in line with the safety they require. The big tires, with a road gripping tread, were among the first features to stand out to testers. The maximum speed of 20 mph is fast but well within the controllable level of most teens (helmets are mandatory!). This is NOT a street legal bike so unless there is an accessible park or open space nearby this might not be for you. Forget about tossing this in the back of your car, it is both heavy and cumbersome. The brakes worked flawlessly throughout our entire testing period and through hundreds of various sized riders. Perhaps the most impressive feature here is the battery. So often we have seen rechargeable lithium batteries offer tiny, bite-sized cycles. With a single charge, your teen will get 50 minutes of ride time. That is far longer than any other battery in the category. This is a big, expensive toy, that is not for everyone, but if you believe your teenager is ready for a ride like this, then you need to check it out.

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

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.
