Toy Tips® Rating Scores

The Toy Tips Cummulative Rating Score is a combination of our researchers' observation of enjoyment and our independent survey that rates each toy based on development skills. Each researcher uses an original survey written by psychologists  and our review team so results are accurate, independent and academic. Thousands of demographically diverse children participate in the review process. The total score is calculated and Toy Tips only reports the toys with the ratings scores ranging from A to C-. Each is weighted based on the results of our survey and is graded on multiple levels of developmental learning patterns. These observations are independent of the testing grading score, which is determined by the children who actually test the toys. For children age 3 and younger, our researchers calculate this score for them based on our criteria. Our research process surpasses all industry standards.
