This Week's "Pre-Production" Products


Pre-Production Samples

These are the latest products submitted for our constructive feedback which are in final stages of pre-production development. Our readers now have an opportunity to see exciting new developments before they even go into their final run. We invite you to "provide your own feedback" which we will pass onto the product developers of the products.

* Products featured in this section that have passed our evaluation, will have a secondary evaluation when production run is available. Final ratings in each evaluation category will then be recorded and finalized.

About Our Evaluation Report Summaries

With the fast paced change in the industry and buying habits today, we have chosen to introduce a new feature for our New Inductees. Due to the ratio of product passing our evaluation in comparison with the large volume of products being submitted each month, new post-induction process feature is needed.

If a product has been inducted, yet the product evaluation summary has not yet been posted, a company now has three options to consider;
  1. Do nothing but relish in the fact of their product(s) having passed our strict evaluation standards.
  2. Activate a license immediately for unlimited use of our Seal of Approval and any of our exclusive awards to which they are entitled.
    The licensing period will not begin officially until the actual product evaluation summary has been posted. Product evaluation summary is published within a maximum of 30 business days or sooner.

    Example: Company A's product is inducted on January 11, yet the product evaluation summary for it is not posted until February 1. Although the company activated their license on January 11, the one year licensing period paid for does not begin until February 1. All time between the Induction Date and the actual Posting Date is free of charge.

  3. Activate license same date as posting of product evaluation summary.
  4. If a product title or certificate number has a green check mark, (ie; An image of a green checkmark for products with an active Toy Man Seal of Approval license.), next to it, this signifies that the product has an active Toy Man Seal of Approval license and product evaluation summary for reading.
