Toy Tester Program Program Terms & Conditions

The Step2 Company's Toy Tester program offers invited customers ("Toy Tester Members") access to certain products listed on a dedicated website ("Toytester.step2.com") at no cost in order to encourage independent customer reviews on Step2.com and The Step2 Company affiliated websites, to provide customer feedback to product suppliers, and to further publicize certain products ("Toy Tester Products"). Your participation in The Step2 Company's Toy Tester program is subject to these terms and conditions (the "Terms and Conditions") and constitutes your acceptance to the Terms and Conditions.
