Neat Oh Dinosaur Zip Bin 160
(Neat-Oh $23.99 Score:)

How to keep order to the oh so many little pieces of play? Here's a creative and playful solutio. A colorful storage vinyl box where all those dino plant eaters and meat eaters can be contained between playtimes. Unzip the corners and there's a big mat with swamps, trees and rocky ledged graphics where dramatic play can come to life. A lidded transformable box comes with two dino figures with room for lots more along with a setting for hours of imaginative play. 3 & up.  

Also nice for take along fun, Neat Oh Dinosaur Brings Along Backpack(19.99)

SNAP: Play settings and boxes for storing playthings can enhance playtime. Clean up time becomes another opportunity to sort playthings, as well. A storage box for animals, aone for vehicles another for blocks, perhaps can go a long way to staying ahead of chaos and a much better idea than one big toy box where everything gets lost in the shuffle. We like the idea of the big play setting that unzips with these Neat-oh containers.

2015 Award
Clifford the Big Red Dog Water Science
(Young Scientists CLub $19.99 Score:)

Newest in a wonderful collection of young science kits, this one deals with water and introduces children to some basic concepts such as floating, sinking, icebergs, and hands on experiments that allow kids to see the water cycle, phases from liquid to solid to gas. The kit itself contains almost all the materials you need to explore the activities in a 20-page manual that includes ways to make rain, submarine, foam boat, chromatography, and more. Plastic test tubes, mini-measuring cup, mini-sponge, pipette, lab tray and special tubes and papers for experiments. You will need to provide your own food coloring and for a magical experiment, some black pepper. Since these are essentially designed for preschoolers, you will be doing the reading. Basically, this kit is a parent intensive opportunity to explore and expand new ideas with your preschooler. Marked for 3 & up, we think this is probably a better bet for slightly oler preschoolers and even a good choice for 5 & up. Young readers will also like helping with the directions as well as the experiments.

LeapFrog LeapBand
(LeapFrog $39.99 Score:)

Kids usually like wearing and using tech products their parents are using and the LeapBand is a kid's version of your activity band. However, it doesn't count steps or distance or calories like the grown up kinds, but is designed to encourage activities that do keep kids moving, which is a good thing. The pet pal can be customized so kids earn points by completing 50 active challenges, such as 'pounce like a lion' or 'walk like a crab' or 'spin like a helicopter.' Our testers found this a novelty, but way too over-sized and bulky for kid-sized wrists and kids did not want to wear it for long. Available in pink, blue and gender-free green. Though they look similar, this is nothing like the VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch, which is really a watch/camera/recorder.

Road Rippers Piston Thumper Ford Raptor
(Toy State $19.99 Score:)

For noisy toy fans, this will do it, big time. The F-150 SVT Raptor has lights and lots of roaring beeping and thumping sounds that will delight kids until someone yells--turn that #*@#& off! That said, it's a showy gift for the price and you can always let the batteries go dead and still have a powerful looking SVT for dramatic play. Takes 3 AA batteries.

Cloud b Twilight Buddies, Sheep
(Cloud b $34.95 Score:)

This soft sheep projects a starry night sky of soft lights on the ceiling of the nursery for little ones to gaze at as they go to sleep. A built-in timer turns the light show off after 45 minutes. This projects three-color options: green, blue, and amber. Just as you would not put a pillow in a crib, this is not meant to be in a crib, but rather in the room. Soft to the touch, this is also a cuddly but quiet good choice for toddlers and preschoolers who find comfort in having a nightlight rather than a totally darkened bedroom.

2014 Award
KaZAM Balance Bike v2e
(KaZam Bikes $59.95 Score:)


We told you about the classic KaZAM balance bike last year and now our tester, who loved the original, likes the newer model even more. Like the original, kids can sit, walk, glide, coast and balance, but this is lighter than the original and has tires that are like the ones of baby strollers. It also has a new and improved frame and ergonomic footrest. Comes in a wide variety of colors.

2014 Award
Hot Wheels Spin King
(Toy State $14.99 Score:)

A showy present, this blue racer is not only motorized to rev up and roll, it lights up and even plays some music. A great novelty toy that is sure to please any 3 & up on your list. May not go the distance and requires three AA batteries, but if you shop you will find it for even less than the sticker price and appreciate it for the short term novelty fun it provides.
