SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Fall 2014

The game of chess is timeless and yet at the same time it is viewed as intimidating to many. Yamie Chess does teach the game but it is so much more than just learning how to play chess. The boxed set starts with a comic book/workbook. This is a brilliant idea to hook kids. Using characters that are really chess pieces really worked on the connection. The way that each character was directly related to a chess piece helped kids understand what the purpose of the piece was, how it moves and its importance in the game. The comic book has a wealth of mathematical applications. There are associations with geometry, algebra, lots of problem solving, and a massive amount of critical thinking skills. The chess board is of fine quality and looks like a standard chess set. Parents gave high praise to the creators who designed such an ingenious approach to teaching chess. Several teacher/testers told us that they would be using Yamie Chess in their classrooms this fall.

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.
