Manhattan Toy Puppy Go Round
(Manhattan Toy $10.90 Score:)

With a big red suction cup to hold it down, this highchair toy has plenty of action. It spins, squeaks and the little pups spin independently. This calls for fine motor skills with little fingers rather than a simple swipe of the hand. 6 months & up.

Age: Infants. Award Year: 2015.

North American Bear Fox
(North American Bear Co. $18-25 Score:)

One of our favorites, a bright orange and yellow fox with red ears, black snout and a very long long tail that will double as a comforting cozy that baby will love to touch. The smaller fox is 5 inches and has a quiet rattle inside. Their 11-inch variation is more like a toddler size huggable.

Manhattan Toy Lovies Bailey Bunny
(Manhattan Toy $25 Score:)

Bring home the large blue Bailey Bunny or the smaller handful size. Both have pellets inside so they can sit up or stretch out for a rest. Soft-as-silk-plush with safety anchored eyes and a stitched snout. If you are looking for pink, look for Binky Bunny, the same sweet huggable with a floppy body that will get lots of hugging and loving. If you are shopping on line, be aware this comes in many sizes. For toddlers, big but light is best. They like the heft of an armful to lug around and the long arms and legs of dolls that can be grabbed with ease.

North American Bear Peacock
(North American Bear Co. $18 Score:)

A multicolored little bird with a very long velour tail that will double as a cozy baby will love to hold. Made of silk soft fabric, the little bird has a quiet rattle inside that will grab his attention. There is a larger version of this, but we really like the smaller one of this set. Also see the very friendly looking Fox in this line

NogginStik Developmental Light-up Rattle
(SmartNoggin $22.99 Score:)

Testers liked this clever hi-tech rattle. Based on a classic bar-bell rattle shape, this one has a flat bottom on one side and a light-up face on the other side. It has a quiet rattle sound when you shake it, and the round head changes colors from blue to green to red. The photo here, show the same rattle as it appears when the light changes. A fun toy for early tracking games and sensory discoveries later on. At the bottom there is a small mirror that distorts more than reflects, but has added interest. The high contrast black and white on the base will visual interest even the youngest baby and the easy to grasp textured red and yellow bar will add sensory interest to the touch when baby is old enough to take hold of things. Of course, this is something for parents to use with baby until true hand control is develped. It's a toy infants will reach out for, but very likely bop themselves with before they are really in control of hand movements.

Sassy Crab Chime and Lobster Jitter
(Sassy $11.99 Score:)

Our newest infant tester was excited with Sassy's all fabric Crab and Lobster toys that can hang on baby's carrier, stroller or car seat. From the start, little babies notice eyes, especially big eyes and these toys have bull's-eye style biggies that will attract even a very young baby's visual attention, as will the high contrast black and white patterns against the bright red and yellow critters. Crab has a gentle chiming sound to listen for and a tug on lobster's colorful loops will start it jiggling and jittering! The easy-to-grasp handles are just right for young babies to hold onto and because it's soft there's no worry that the baby will hit herself in the face with a hard plastic while exploring the toy. There's so much here to explore with all the senses. It's one of those toys that doesn't cost a lot; but offers tons of action and discoveries. A great example of a toy that's perfect for the age group but will not break the bank. Newborns and up.

Silky soft to the touch this blue bunny with long floppy ears, jet black eyes and velvety snout can sit up, withstand a million snuggles and listen to whatever your toddler has to tell him.

Manhattan Toy Link and Play Monkey
(Manhattan Toy $15.99 Score:)

A good take along toy for moments when you need to divert or entertain a restless baby in the doctor's office or on a flight. This jolly monkey done up in an eye-catching striped outfit with a green star and turquoise ruff around the neck, is ready to play around. It has clacking beads at the top and clacking rings attached to his tail. His little feet have crinkle sounds built inside and squeeze his soft body and he squeaks. Hang him in the stroller for gazing or on the infant seat or play mat bars. A nice little gift for big sisters or big brother to bring to their newest relative.

Manhattan Toy Travel + Comfort Chime Toy
(Manhattan Toy $8 Score:)

We like the musical jingle of these fabric rattles. You can hang one from the infant seat or play mat bars, to bat at with little hands or feet or use them for tickle and track games. The two textures of the body and tail make for contrasting sensory experience; both soft and silky. Though the eyes are small and faces indistinct, these elongated critters are fun for travel diversions when you need a variety of props to entertain baby, who will rarely stay interested in anything for long. These all-plush rattles come in three different colors and will fit into little hands before long. We discovered that the Fox with it's brighter color attracted our three-month old tester more than the pale pastel ones. For beginners, with the ring removed, this will not hurt if baby's bump a rattle into the face. Newborns and up.

Age: Infants. Award Year: 2015.
