SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2015

Time in a Box

Parents were over the moon about this memory making toy/game. Time in a Box is a set of 96 suggested activity cards. It is clear that the goal of the game’s creators is to get families to slow down and spend quality time together. It all starts with a simple agreement between you and your child that one of the cards must be completed on the chosen day and that it is to be done with the parent (siblings may join in too). It works by the child/children pulling out a card that then the family completes together. The activities on each card are well thought out and creative. Parents especially liked how they suggest different activities that are broad enough so that they appeal to a wide range of childrens interests. There is a “done” checkbox and a space to write a brief note about the experience. Parents told us that they relished the opportunity to put away all devices and just be present with each other. As you complete the memory making exercise be prepared for your kids to beg to do another.

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:

Report Period

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.
