SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Fall 2014

Smithsonian Young Explorers: Oceans

Silver Dolphin absolutely blew testers away with this fabulous book, puzzle and poster set. To begin with they loved the packaging which comes in a solid, sturdy case that makes storing the set easy while keeping the items safe and good condition. The quality and extensiveness of this product is where parents heaped their most effusive praise. The informative poster is the perfect size for hanging, not too large. The puzzle is challenging enough to make it fun while requiring some thought, focus, imagination and creativity. The fact book is easy for kids to read, colorful, a comfortable size for little hands and filled with unique and fun facts about the ocean, sea life, the changing ocean climate and the vast array of creatures that live in the ocean. Over and over parents told us about the hours of play it provided for their children who were fascinated and engrossed right from the start.

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

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.
