SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2017

Revell Junior Kit Race Car

The building of model cars is almost a relic of the past, we say almost because Revell is keeping the model building experience alive almost single-handedly. Many of our testers told us how they remembered building models with their parents and were delighted to have the chance to bond with their kids the same way they had. It’s probably been a few years but never fear, the instructions couldn’t be easier to follow – it only took about two pages for child and parent to understand and dive in. It was a thrill to see children focused and eager to learn. They were able to install or construct almost every part of the car. The decals got a bit tricky and this is where parents had to decide, depending on the age of the child, should they apply the stickers so that it looks just right or let their kids have total ownership, crooked decals and all. The finished product is not designed to be a rough and tumble play toy, rather a show piece which kids can display with pride.

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:

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.
