SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Holiday 2012

Switch & Go Dinos

It’s getting to the point where a toy has to have multiple personalities these days. VTech can spot a trend as well as anyone and Switch & Go Dinos does and excellent job as a transformational toy. The giant brachiosaurus walks and talks (when you child presses the right buttons eliciting one of 70 different sounds) and he morphs into a truck. This toy is targeted to a younger audience and VTech got it right by making the experience challenging but not too difficult to complete the transformations. When in truck mode the buttons turn the lights on and when you insert the driver he will talk. There is even a secondary toy, a smaller car and a flying Pterodactyl that can launch off the truck. Parents reported that the pieces were sturdy and the assembled units did not fall apart despite aggressive play. The play pattern was seen as promoting creativity, imagination and hand/eye coordination.

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.
