Square Panda Phonics Playset

After two months of testing the verdict was clear, Square Panda Phonics Playset is one of the finest, most well-developed and ingenious educational products we have seen to date. The set works with your iPad and covers phonics from the beginning of letter recognition to spelling complex words. Just connect your iPad, download your apps, and you are ready to go. It is completely interactive, inviting toddlers to feel the letter and hold it in their hand, and at the same time receive a visual representation of the words (and then letters) on the screen. It keeps track of each child’s progress, which means you can have multiple children working at their own pace and level. The characters are brightly colored and appealing. The best part is that children were really learning how to spell and loving every minute of it. Parents loved how self contained the set is. The letters fit nicely into a plastic tray that holds both the letters and the iPad. The box it comes in also serves as a great carrying case for the game. Parents told us that they are hoping there will be math and other educational apps in the near future.

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.
