Following in the footsteps of Bandai, who appointed the eight-year-old James Childs to test its Ben 10 range, Meadowhall Shopping Centre in South Yorkshire is accepting applications for the role of Toy Quality Control Analyst.
Kids will be required to test toys throughout the summer holidays, and write blog posts on their experiences, the Star reports.
Meadowhall centre director, Darren Pearce, said the objective of the project is to find out what kids really want from toys.
He commented: "They’ll be in every week, testing a whole variety of toys. I think it’s something lots of kids will want to get involved with – what better than spending an hour a week playing with all the latest toys? We are expecting a lot of applications.
"They will need to test toys all the way through the summer holidays and also write an online blog about what they really think, rating the toys from awesome to boring, or cool to uncool, using the sort of language that kids will relate to."
