SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Holiday 2017

Splatoon Splattershot Blaster

Some parents will instantly dismiss any product that promotes gun play, we hear it a lot and we totally understand where that comes from, especially in the light of recent news. Testers who felt that this was a fun, physical extension of a video game they were familiar with did not bring those qualms to the testing center and responded with high scores and positive reviews. Our kid testers were amazed and thrilled at the idea that they could play with their very own slimeball gun in their own backyard or at the park. JAKKS wisely licensed the popular Splatoon video game from Nintendo which added to the appeal. In the box you’ll find everything you need to get started. Parents appreciated that it came with goggles and included 2 ink tanks. They also felt that JAKKS was very responsible in setting the suggested age at 8 and Up since this is a gun that inherently requires care and responsibility when played with. Parents told us that if you clean up immediately after playing, the slime does not seem to stain the clothes or anything else it lands on. This toy is easy-to-use, well-made and is strong enough to hold up to any childs abuse. The Blaster promotes hand-eye coordination, dexterity, patience, agility and skill. This can only be played with independently unless you buy two or know another person with the same toy.

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.
