SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Spring 2015

Twista

Balance bikes have become a favorite first step towards riding a bicycle. Twista is a balance bike that features a sleek, attractive design in a bike that is sturdy and durable yet lightweight. But Yvolution wasn’t going to introduce just another balance bike, they rethought what was possible and created Twista, a truly brilliant example of innovative, useful and practical engineering. Yvolution has designed a back wheel with the ability to switch quickly between training modes with the back wheel splitting apart for easier balancing. Switching back to balance mode, with the wheels closer together gave kids better maneuverability. Testers felt that Twista is excellent for both indoor and outdoor use. The bike is packaged with only minimal assembly required and all of the necessary tools. It is simple to adjust the height of the seat. The bike can also stand up on its own, both in training mode and in balance mode, making storage easier. Parents felt that Twista does a remarkable job of teaching kids how to balance and give them a huge boost of confidence.

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:
