Minnesota tots determine which toys land on shelves
M.A. Rosko visits the Goddard School in Chanhassen which has been chosen for the first time to participate in a National Toy Test to determine which toys make it on to shelves for the upcoming holiday season.
Valarie Riese with the Goddard School says the Chanhassen location is one of 38 of schools chosen from an initial pool of 400. Manufacturers send their toys to schools for kids with a special penchant for learning to test engagement (a great indicator is if the toy attracts more attention than the toy's packaging).
