2010 Award
Little Tikes Monster Dirt Diggers
(Little Tikes $29.99 Score:)

For the beach or sandbox, this big yellow plastic digger has an articulated cab, big wheels, and a spring action working 12" long crane that can scoop, lift, and release loads. The latter rotates a full 360 degrees. The truck bed tilts sideways to dump loads of sand or pebbles or whatever. There's a construction worker driver who can sit in the cab up front or in the seat that operates the claw. Itís bulky, but lightweight enough to take along to the beach or park. It can also be used indoors for dramatic play and loading up blocks or other heavy lifting. This makes a not too pricey but big looking birthday or holiday gift that will get miles of use. 3 & up.

2002 Award
Racin'Rider RC Cycle
(Little Tikes $29.99 Score:) There are a lot of remote control cyclers scooting about this year. This one is easy enough for younger kids to operate. It has a very futuristic look. The cycler balances by putting a leg out when you change its direction with the two-button controller. Operating this calls for memory, directionality and some dexterity. too. For a simpler to operate vehicle, stay with last year's Select'n'Go R/C Car (Little Tikes $29.99)a zippy futuristic racing car.
