Description

Since 1954, educationalists, psychologists, doctors, technicians, experts in design, chemistry, electronics ... and parents - scientific and practical people - have been examining and assessing toys - from babies' rattles to material for experimenting.  They work on a honorary basis and are independent of the toy industry and retailers.  Their spiel gut recommendation signifies that this toy has been tested with children and examined by experts with a positive result.  Their criteria: play value, material, workmanship, construction, durability, safety, design, size, quantity, quality of the instructions for playing or making, suitability for the appropriate age group.  After the sample has been tested, the expert panel (15 - 20 members from various disciplines) meets to discuss the samples and decide on the awards. There are around 10 to 15 sessions each year. The spiel gut award, or the reasons for rejecting the game are then returned to the manufacturer and/or designer.
