Janod Circus Puzzle
(Janod $19.99 Score:)

A big top wooden circus puzzle board with six pegged pieces for easy gripping. It is just the right scale for puzzle beginners. Lift out the monkey, the blue elephant, a seal with a ball on its nose, a tiger, a girl on the flying trapeze and the ringmaster. There is a lot to talk about here; the colors, the names of the puzzle pieces, the one on the top, the one in the middle, the one with the ball. It's easy to see how you can stretch language as you work on this together. Beginners will need patience and help in turning the pieces to fit and that is part of the challenge for getting little hands and eyes to work together. All in all a nice choice, especially after a trip to the circus. Marked 18 months and up, but more like a 2 year old toy.

Sassy Zoomin' Zoo Train Set
(Sassy $29.99 Score:)

We liked the simplicity and play-ability of this little plastic train. An engine and two flatcars can be joined together and tots can load and unload the colorful blocks that can be stacked on the cars. The sensory blocks have rattle sounds that will interest young players. Each block comes with a small tray to hold the blocks and holds it in place. Of course, putting the small tray in place calls for more dexterity and maybe some help for the first however many times. 

SNAP: A good choice for encouaging eye-hand skills and dexterity along with dramatic play.Use color words as you handle the blocks to reinforce language and concepts. Use them for stacking and a singing game to the tune of Skip to My Lou:

"Mommy found the yellow block, the yellow block, the yellow block, Mommy found the yellow block...now let's find the blue."

Step 2 Wonder Ball Fun House
(Step 2 $149.99 Score:)

Toddlers love settings that are built to their scale. Step 2's new Wonder House comes with a red half door to enter the small playspace. What's unique about this house is the ball drop design. The game play is to toss the balls onto the green roof of the house. They then trickle down the upright tubes on the corners and then down into the base. Out for testing! Award pending. Stay tuned!

North American Bear Unicorn 11
(North American Bear Co. $25 Score:)

All done up with a bright pink body, red hooves, a big twisted orange unicorn, a multicolored mane, and ears lined with yellow this Sleepy Unicorn 11 is one of a series of huggables with a very long flat tail that will surely appeal as a cozy to hold on the way to dreamland. The overstuffed body is soft to the touch and light to carry, yet makes a perfect armful for older toddlers who like dolls that fill up their arms. There is a smaller five and a half variation of this doll, but we preferred the larger doll of this pair. 2 & up

Manhattan Toy Groovy Boy Asher
(Manhattan Toy $15 Score:)

We are always on the lookout for boy dolls and this a great example. Asher is wearing khaki shorts and a blue and white striped shirt with a skull and bones. He has brownish yarn hair and his clothes are removable. With stitch features, he's totally safe for younger players.

Manhattan Toy Baby Stella Sweet Sounds Doll
(Manhattan Toy $45 Score:)

All soft and huggable, Baby Stella makes a great first doll. This is a new twist with some relatively quiet sounds. We think you do not need a talking doll for toddlers, but this one doesn’t talk much. Squeeze her hand and she simply says Mama or giggles; or put her pacifier near her mouth and she makes a sucking sound. This year's Sweet Sounds Doll comes in a polka dotted pale pink and green dress and her pacifier matches. With stitched features and a tuft of brown fabric hair, she is just the tight size armful for toddlers. 12 months and up.

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
