SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2020

SwimWays Fairy Tails

If you have a mermaid fan in your home and if this lockdown ends to the point where we can take our kids back to pools, SwimWays Fairy Tails will be a cute addition to the experience. There are two pieces here, the sweet mermaid and her fish friend. Both are designed to bob in the water alongside your child. Spin Master created these toys with a material that appears to resist mold well, which for parents is a critical feature in bath & pool toys. The surface is porous, so water either drips off or evaporates with proper and sufficient air drying. The paint on the characters appeared to testers to be strong enough to withstand peeling or rubbing away. The colorful pastels of the characters are appealing with anime-styled large eyes that have become expected in character toys these days. The consensus here was that this is a sweet little toy that, for only $5 could be a good party favor at swimming parties.

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.
