SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Fall 2013

Toy Story: Story Theater

This new mobile app takes the appeal of very popular Disney/Pixar characters from the Toy Story franchise and allows kids to create, animate and voiceover, their own stories. There are two modes of play, one that uses pre-set backgrounds and props (Story Play), and a second that is wide open and allows for open ended imagination (Free play). Visually the app is dazzling, there are multiple backgrounds, characters and props. Kids can assemble a cast, use props in their storylines and even choose their locations. By simply dragging their fingers across the iPad screen they can make things move to better tell the story. There is a voice prompt that gives them simple and direct instructions that are easy to follow. Each story is saved and can be revisited and re-edited as often as the child wants. We got nothing but high praise from testers who felt this was an all around, excellent app that encourages imagination, creativity, and learning.

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.
