The multi award-winning You’ve been Sentenced! word game uses pentagon-shaped cards with conjugations of funny words, famous names, and familiar places. Each player uses his or her hand of 10 cards to build a grammatically correct sentence, racing the other players while also trying to score the most points per round. Sentences also have to be justifiable in meaning, making players use both creativity and common sense.

The game provides a generous level of challenge and encourages an extensive amount of skill usage and development. Overall, the You’ve been Sentenced! word game proved to be an exciting and quite enjoyable game in our evaluation.

This Week's Evaluation Report Summaries, ERS

About Evaluation Report Summaries, ERS - This Week's Listings

Evaluation Report Summaries, otherwise referred to as an ERS, are the very foundation from which The Toy Man Product Guide was created. An ERS is an in-depth, lengthy, and accurate summary of a product or service that passed our strict evaluation process. They are a means to give our new inductees recognition while providing a reliable information source on products that can be found nowhere else.

This week we have 1 new Evaluation Report Summaries, ERS, for your enjoyment and enrichment.

About Our Evaluation Report Summaries

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. Product evaluation summary is published within a maximum of 30 business days or sooner.

    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.
  4. If a product title or certificate number has a green check mark, (ie; An image of a green checkmark for products with an active Toy Man Seal of Approval license.), next to it, this signifies that the product has an active Toy Man Seal of Approval license and product evaluation summary for reading.
