SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2021

Smithsonian Jellyfish Tank

This Jellyfish Tank that carries the Smithsonian name delighted testers who found it to be fascinating, soothing, and educational. It is ideal for the suggested age group of 10+, but parents felt that it could be enjoyed by even younger children (with parent supervision) since it provides a unique experience not found in many other toy/activity sets. It is easy to set up, and the directions are crystal clear. It makes for a great family project and adds to the sense of pride and satisfaction for everyone once it was completed. Like a fish tank, this is something that kids can go back to over and over to watch the jellyfish as they float around the tank. It is quite relaxing and can double as a nightlight. Testers gave high marks for durability, noting that it felt like it would last a long time. There is an educational component as well because it can spark conversation about a specific species as well as other ocean/marine life. Parents felt that this would also be a great addition to any classroom or even for senior citizens. The tank itself is aesthetically pleasing, neutral, and modern in color, and looks great in any room.

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.
