Seal of Approval Winner Spring 2000 Wild Republic

Seal of Approval Winner Spring 2000

K & M International
Once your child gets a loving embrace from one of these adorably sweet rain forest primates you’ll both be hooked. These well-made monkeys, orangutans, and other lesser known species have Velcro extremities that attach in a variety of positions, most notably around your kid’s necks and arms in a warm embrace. There are 27 species of monkeys represented in the Wild Republic line and all come with an informative hangtag about each one. As an added bonus, those hang tags feature a password, which when used at the company’s web site, opens the door to more fun and games for your kids. New this year as mini CD-ROM’s which fit into your computer and have fun games and information about your animal. What a great idea! Several parents told us that they envisioned decorating their children’s rooms with a jungle theme using Wild Republic primates as props.

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:
