The CoolToys Rating System and Approval Method
The CoolToys Rating System is based on stars. Unlike other websites that rate on a scale of 1 to 5 stars, we wanted to be clear on what each rating means. More importantly if you are not approved you don’t get any stars. Only products or services ranked three stars or higher can say “As Seen on CoolToys®”.
If your product gets three or more stars we’ll send you a decal for your window, a T-shirt or a #RWTH style CoolToys Stainless Tumbler. Where does your stuff rate?
Five Stars = CruToy.
Wife not a fan, buddies bought it. or, wives are a fan but it is so cool we didn’t care and bought them their own if necessary to insure we get to play with it, that means it got six stars, we took one because the wives liked it and it still made the list. This is how a CoolToy becomes a CruToy.
Four Stars = CoolToys Approved.
We bought it and kept it, like our Jeeps.
Three Stars = CoolToy but…
We like it and would buy on clearance.
Two Stars = It’s Ok, would not return if it was a gift
One Star = Meh, We like it but wouldn’t buy it.
It is pretty tough to get a Zero Star rating from us, but when you do you get a slo-mo toss in the trash like the cell watch failure, we trash talk you online or worse, we re-gift it at a white elephant gift exchange.
Anything that gets a four or five star rating on the CoolToys Rating System can say “CoolToys Approved”. This isn’t easy to do. If you think you have something that should be on CoolToys, let us know about it so we can check it out and put it on the show. All Wheel Drive? Four Wheel Drive? Video Games? Surfboards? Drones? Yup we have them all.
Remember no one can pay to have a product reviewed. The best they can do is send it to us to test. If we like it we’ll say so. If we don’t like it, you may never know what happened to it. All paid promotional items on the set are not reviewed or approved. They are on the set because we have bills to pay too. The catch is we don’t let anything on set we wouldn’t buy or use ourselves.
