SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Fall 2016

Space Rocket with Launch Site

Over the years Playmobil has repeatedly proven their ability to connect with children. Their themed building sets spark imaginative play even before the box is opened. Playmobil uses larger pieces that other building sets making it is easier for small hands to manipulate. The colors are vibrant and the details are precise. The pieces are quite strong and durable, once you click the pieces together, they are stuck and difficult to get apart which makes the completed set able to withstand repeated play without falling apart. It is not a static model though. Many of the parts are movable expanding play options unlike other sets that you have to handle with extreme care so they don’t fall apart. Kids loved the interactive buttons that flash lights and make blast off noises. It all works together encouraging curiosity about space and space travel. Testers liked that this set features the launch site and not just the rocket since it also taught a bit about the challenge of space travel such as the science, engineering and support that goes on behind the scenes.

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:

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.
