SmartNoggin Reaching & Grasping Rings

These Reaching and Grasping Rings feature such a simple design but it packs a powerful punch as a developmental and entertainment tool that you can begin to use as early as one week old. Parents were thrilled to learn about the concept behind this toy. It allows a baby to enjoy different developmental stages from birth until one year of age. For those babies at the age of grabbing everything in sight, the ring on the handle makes it easy to grasp but the triple ring on the other end of the toy makes it a fun side to grip as well. This toy really stands out visually with its bright red color and black and white spotted ring. The stripped ring is a textured rubber making it easier to grab and manipulate. The rattle in the middle encourages babies to shake the ring as well as look for the cute rubber outlined face painted on. This toy held up extremely well throughout the testing process, in fact it still looks like we just took it out of the box.

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

HOLIDAY ‘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.
