Get your kid a job: toy tester

Do you want to be part of the magic that is testing toys and games? Sure you do. We’ve done it a few times with our sons and really enjoyed it. In fact, the toy pictured here was with us for a few weeks in its early stages of development.


Interested parents and kids who are local to the San Francisco Bay Area should register to be added to the LeapFrog Lab database. Once you register, you will start to receive invitations from LeapFrog about upcoming sessions.

Most test sessions are held in Emeryville and involve minimal compensation. Any home studies usually require pick-up and drop-off of materials in Emeryville.

And its pretty fun.
