Plan Toys Bunny Racer
(Plan Toys $12.99 Score:)

Little hands will have no trouble pushing this chunky little bunny around in its nifty little orange racing car with bright green wheels. Bunny's head fits in the hand and is shaped for easy grasping. Fun for crawlers and beginning pretenders. Not exactly a racer, but this is not about speeding, but rather simple locomotion for young toddlers who are just starting their own locomotion skills. If you prefer a brighter look, consider Plan Toys' Chicken Racer, the same size as Bunny Racer only more colorful with red car, blue wheels, and white chick with yellow trims. Bunny or Chicken do not come out of the vehicle for safety reasons. Plan Toys uses sustainable rubber wood that is coated with a non-toxic finish and colors from vegetable dye.1 & up.

Plan Toys Fire Truck Mini Vehicle
(Plan Toys $15.99 Score:)

Just right for small hands, this uncomplicated wooden fire truck is scaled for crawlers and beginning pretenders to roll around. Colored in somewhat muted red vegetable dye, the little driver does not come out (for safety reasons) but he turns as does the light on top as the fire truck rolls along the floor. No sounds, not batteries, no little pieces, no premade story. It is a lovely little vehicle for beginners active play style and early lessons in cause and effect. Plan Toys uses sustainable rubber wood that is coated with a non-toxic finish and colors from vegetable dye.1 & up

2014 Award
Kidzoozie Push n Zoom Vehicle
(International Playthings $14.99 Score:)

Push the driver down and see how the cement mixer truck zooms along while the cement mixer spins. For kids who are into construction trucks there is also a steam shovel truck with a shovel that moves when the driver is pushed down. These make nice props for pretend play for older toddlers. The push action on the construction worker takes some muscle power so this may work best for slightly older kids than the 18 month old label suggests.

2013 Award
Kidoozie Zig Zag Speedsters
(International Playthings $39.99 Score:)

Fun for making things happen - big time! Put the little racing cars in the elevator and push them to the top. Now push the elevator button and varoom! Watch the chunky cars zoom down the ramps and pop out of the roadway. Like a ball run with cars instead of balls, this is one of those toys toddlers love. They like the repetitive action and the powerful joy of being in control as they make things happen again and again. 18 months & up

Fisher Price Little People Wheelies Loops 'n Swoops Amusement Park
(Fisher-Price $44.99 Score:)

Toddlers will like the repeat action of this two foot tall runway. It comes with two little vehicles that will twist and turn on the ramp way or zip down the slide into a 360 degree loop. At the end of the ramp it plays a sound effect salute. This is a big, big piece of plastic that will make a really big show for gift giving and will probably give your toddler play value for a while. We tested it with balls from other ball runs and found it works well that way too. If you leave the batteries out, it will still work perfectly well and be less intrusive in a small space if you are annoyed with repeated sound effects.

SNAP: A good choice for developing visual tracking and sense of making things happen with independence. Concrete experiences help to develop color concepts and position words such as top and bottom, down and up, high and low, in and out.
