Four Games & Devices Earn NPC Seal of Approval for Holidays

After a Fall 2010 update failed to include any videogames, the National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval awards focused on the 2010 holiday season includes four such entries.

The winners, part of the NPC’s 20th annual incarnation of the awards, were chosen following two months of testing by both parents and kids in the NPC’s test centers. Entries are judged by “a variety of levels including, but not limited to, price, packaging, design, stimulation, desirability, age appropriateness, instructions and more.”

This year’s four videogame category selections were Sony’s PlayStation Move (“the accuracy of motion capture is impressive”), Electronic Arts’ MySims Skyheroes (controls are intuitive, “little to no learning curve”), Scholastic Entertainment’s I Spy Universe for the Nintendo DS (“very easy to understand and provides hours of focused entertainment”) and Microsoft’s Kinect add-on for the Xbox 360 (“We have never seen anything like it and neither have you”).
