Welcome to the Kobold Kids Toy Trial!
Kobold Toys is very proud to announce that it has created a program, the Kobold Kids Toy Trial, to work jointly with parents, grandparents, caregivers, teachers and kids to give toy designers, manufacturers and consumers first-hand insight about different kinds of toys, interactive books, art supplies and crafts.
The idea is to get first-hand rapport from our toy's consumers, such as why they like a toy, what they think about the toy's quality, functionality or design; whether the kids looked engaged while playing; what they think about the manufacturer's safety standards; whether they will buy that toy; and any suggestions and recommendations that they may have to improve the toy --if needed to. To make the test more meaningful, each toy that we select is tested by, at least, ten families.
Kobold Toys then issues a report to share with the toys' manufacturers and, for those toys that Kobold Kids and Parents love unanimously, we award them a Kobold Kids Toy Trial Seal (or the two little thumbs up!)
We are proud to currently count on over 80 families and 1 preschool which have signed up to be part of this project. By working together with the families, the schools and the manufacturers, we have no doubt that we will all win when it comes to giving our little kids toys that will bring the best out of them.
We want to thank Brio and Papo for being the first brands to support this project with free samples that Kobold Toys and the parents have suggested.
If you are a manufacturer and want to be part of this project, to gain insight on your toys from the "front line", please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you more detail information about our surveys.
If you are a parent, grandparent, teacher and are interested in joining this program, please email us at email@example.com with the following information:
For each child participating:
Day of birth
My partner, Carmina, and I envision Kobold Toys as an integrating company that, yes, sells toys but also participates in community events, charities and works with parents for the benefit of children.
Please email us anytime with comments, suggestions, ideas or questions. When we hear from you, we learn to better serve you.
