SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Holiday 2013

Thats Gross Science Lab

Sometimes even Moms have to admit that gross is OK. That was the big concession of this testing period. When put into the hands of SmartLab, Mom’s realize there is an opportunity for some real learning and they can look the other way when their kids present a beaker full of snot. The instruction manual is the first impressive piece of this science kit. Well written and very informative, it details what is needed, and even more importantly, when adult supervision is required, for each of the 26 experiments, along with which ones you can’t eat and which ones are going to make a mess. Let’s face it, you give some boys a chance to concoct Foaming Flush, Snot Slime and Edible Grossness and they are going to be all over it. Our young testers did not disappoint. Parents thought that the way their kids were so focused on the task and concentrating on following the directions so that their snot turned out just right, was very impressive.

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.
