06/29/2010 - The Toy Man Seal of Approval New Inductees
The evaluation summaries which are usually featured here represent an exclusive, credible, and unbiased method of accurate product recognition by use of The Toy Man® Seal of Approval Validation, and our exclusive awards.

Does YOUR product have what it takes to face this challenge?

PLEASE NOTE: The actual date of product or service induction is generally not the date of publishing of the weekly New Inductee announcements.



Just The Beginning...

The New Inductees you see here are just the beginning of what you will soon be seeing. Rather than induct a product and wait until the product evaluation summary for it is ready for publishing, we now will be publishing a page as you see here with images, links, and information on each product, the actual intro to the product evaluation summary for each featured New Inductee, or a combination of both.

Be sure and check back here on July the 4th to see what products were selected as the Q2 Top Ten Products!

About The Toy Man® Product Guide

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 .

    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.




About The Toy Man® Product Guide

Many toys, games, books, and multiple other products, provide innovative approaches in the development and further stimulation of creative thinking, educational skills, and simple needs for children and adults. "The Toy Man® Product Guide" is designed to identify, give recognition, and add distinctive value to these products, by use of "The Toy Man® Seal of Approval", eco-Recognition™ Seal and awards. This service is provided on a "No-Fee" basis for actual product evaluation and publishing of a product evaluation summary if inducted.

The Toy Man® Product Guide is not an awards system. Our evaluation process and results are quite unique. Originally established in 1971 as a 38 page magazine available in public libraries and other outlets, "The Toy Man® Product Guide 2010" online version provides lengthy and in-depth product evaluation summaries which are exclusive to "The Toy Man® Product Guide". Credentialed evaluators from across the globe, in addition to consumers in spontaneous hands-on product evaluation at public locations, are a primary part of our evaluation process.

When you see The Toy Man® Seal of Approval, eco-Recognition™ Seal, Award of Excellence, eChoice™ Award, or any combination of such, you know you have a reliable source to help you make far more informed and productive buying decisions.
