Holiday 2016

Zoomer Hedgies

Testers told us they weren’t sure what to make of Zoomer Hedgies when they first saw it. At first glance it struck them like another loud, moving, tumbling toy. That was before they watched their children play with it. Zoomer is more like bringing a virtual pet into your home. Children control its movements by touching certain parts. For instance, when you touch the forehead, it rolls around and does gymnastic tricks, it will make a variety of noises when you touch its nose. It even cries, sneezes, and raps (bet your dog can’t do that!). If you flip it over and tickle it, it laughs and curls up in a ball. Kids really felt like they were “interacting” with a pet as it responded to them. While it will work on carpet, it is recommended for use on hard floors. The toy is well made and withstood a whole lot of play. The fur is very soft to the touch and it even comes with its own comb. After watching their children engaged and laughing endlessly, parents came to really appreciate Zoomer.

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.
