When the kids find something they like, they will give the product the Sly Fox seal of approval.

When I was in the sixth grade, my thoughts were consumed with playing basketball, crimping my hair, and possibly who Doc would be sleeping with on that week’s “Love Boat.”

The sixth graders of Fox Meadow Intermediate Center in Jonesboro, Arkansas, however, are consumed with testing out consumer electronics—and have launched a website to post their findings.

The first review is of the Weather X Flashlight Radio. The verdict? Many tiny thumbs up.

Expect other reviews to follow, but the final project will ask the kids to analyze scholarship applications, says Home Toys.

The group is currently accepting products for evaluation.
