SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Holiday 2014

Sharknado anyone? Well, not exactly but what a fun, action packed game Spin Master has unleashed on the world. This is an extremely fast-paced game where you are a pirate trying to get across the bridge gathering as much gold as you can all while avoiding being eaten by the shark. Said shark moves around the board, without the use of batteries, powered instead by a good old fashioned pull string. What was the most fun was watching players try to decide what to do, get the gold or get across to safety. The problem solving, counting, efficiency, creativity and teamwork aspects of the game were all appreciated by parents who told us that they honestly weren’t expecting to discover any lessons inside a game with a moving, chomping shark!

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.
