Seal of Approval Winner Fall 2001 Discovery Channel Ancient Sundial & Shadow Dial

Seal of Approval Winner Fall 2001



RoseArt / Warren Industries
Before there were digital watches, cuckoo clocks or even Big Ben, sundials were the only way to know if you were late for school. This craft kit is a great lesson in understanding how ancient civilizations first came to understand and use time. The instructions are clear and the results are attained quickly, which means that in a rather short time you can start telling by the sweeping shadows, when its snack time. The ability to personalize your sun and shadow dials added a nice value to the kit, which parents found appealing. The results were so beautiful that parents as well as their kids were proud to display them in their gardens.

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.
