Soda Pop Science
(Scientific Explorer $20 Score:) A hands-on kit for making home-made soda pop! Comes with all the ingredients (except sugar and food coloring) to mix up batches of lime, cherry, cinnamon, and vanilla soda. Recipes call for measuring and keeping records of your own secret recipes! A great science and party activity. Adult help for 6 to 9s. Older kids will be able to handle this on their own.

Hershey's Chocolate Magic Maker
(Spinmaster $14.99 Score:) As confirmed chocoholics we hoped this would be a winner. It melts chocolate chips without burning hands, but it's hard to extrude chocolate into the molds without making blobs, and is next to impossible to open for cleaning.8& up.

2003 Award
Magic Color Sno-Cone Maker
(Action Products $23.99 Score:) Our testers compared a lot of sno cone makers and this came out far ahead of others. They preferred this to the Snoopy version, reporting that the directions were clearer and it was easier to work than most.

The Icee Maker
(Spinmaster $24.99 Score:) Our testers were excited with the idea of being able to make their ow slush drinks. In fact they thought it would be grat fun for a party. But, alas, this got a lukewarm response (sorry)- after a whole lot of turning and wishing it made a disappointing drink that wasn't "slushy enough."

Easy-Bake Real Meal
(Hasbro $34.99 Score:) Our testers couldn't wait to get started. After 15 minutes of preheating, 10 minutes of cooking and 10 minutes of cooling, our 11-year-old testers noted that we could already have had macaroni in the microwave half an hour before!
