You’ve been Sentenced! word game receives a 2010 Tillywig Toy Award

June 8, 2010

McNeill Designs for Brighter Minds recently announced the receipt of a 2010 Tillywig Toy Award for the language game You’ve been Sentenced! Each year, the Tillywig Toy Awards Program delivers to consumers, retailers, and the media the best new toys, games, and other children’s products available.

According to the Tillywig organization You’ve been Sentenced! received the distinction for the “Laugh Out Loud Award” which is given to toys and games notable for the laughs that begin to flow as soon as they’re opened. The Tillywig Toy Award is the 10th national award recognizing the game, which was launched in May 2005.

In order to be selected as a Tillywig Toy Award winner, a product must be determined by the testing team to have high entertainment or educational value. When assessing these values, the focus is on evaluating many factors, including ease of first use, replay value, quality and appearance, social interaction or the “fun factor,” creativity, and thought processes or motor skills.

During the evaluation process, products are used by a number of testers in an observed focus group format. In the Tillywig Toy Award’s final evaluation of any product, comments from observers are integrated with feedback from testers. Both testers and observers come from all walks of life and a broad range of ages.

“Receiving our 10th national award for You’ve been Sentenced! and especially a Tillywig Laugh Out Loud Award just reinforces the fact that in addition to tremendous educational value, this game is really fun to play,” says McNeill Designs Chairman Donald W. McNeill.
