Seal of Approval Winner Fall 2000 Pretend & Play Talking Scanner

Seal of Approval Winner Fall 2000



Learning Resources
Remember when you first saw a bar code, you know those apparently random vertical lines on every product these days. The mystery of what those lines meant is beyond any level of comprehension for most of us, apart from the fact that they talk to the supermarket checkout machine and speed up that process. Along comes this play scanner and it all starts to make some sense. Given a tool like this there is no limit to the kind of fun enhancements for kids when they play “store”. Our testers played space station, post office and found the scanner could fulfill all kinds of imaginative uses. The LCD price readout and a satisfying, realistic beep sound on this handheld toy were big plusses that added up to a great toy.

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

April 24th

July 31st

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.
