Seal of Approval Winner Holiday 2012 Dr. Seuss Fun Machine

Seal of Approval Winner Holiday 2012



Wonder Forge
The Cat in the Hat is back in a hybrid version of a game that blends traditional game pieces with an iPad app. By matching, pairing, and solving challenges that appear on the screen, kids interact with one of Dr. Seuss’ most beloved characters in ways they never have before. The pieces of the real game are well made, sturdy and sized just right for small hands to manipulate. The integration with the app comes in a variety of games.
Simple matching, where kids try to find tiles that match the shape, color, or character on the screen.
Slap Down where quick reflexes pay off as you try to be the first to slap down your tile when it matches what pops up on the screen. Finally there’s Guess-A-Roo where players have to guess the Secret Tile from the on-screen clues. Collect the most tiles and you are the winner. Parents appreciated the fact that while the game and app were fun and certainly held huge appeal, it was also teaching shape, color, and character recognition.

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

FALL ‘22

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.
