2014 Award
Manhattan Toy Peek Squeak Monkey
(Manhattan Toy $18 Score:)

Hang this on the stroller and take it down for laptime looking. 

The purple satin backed square "blankie" is loaded with activities and textures for you to talk about while little hands explore the crinkle peek flap that reveals a monkey face, the corduroy patch, a banana appliqué with squeaker inside and a teether that hides away in a small pocket. One edge of the blankie has silky fringe and another corner has two felt hearts. Topping it all is a monkey head with stitched features and bright colored ears.

Blabla Giant Hercule
(blabla kids $198 Score:)

Looking for a wow-ee gift that will serve as a huggable, over-the-top companion, and room decoration? Find a seat for dear lovable Hercule, an elephant who is soft and cuddly and 36 inches tall. He's dressed up in non-removable clothes that are gender neutral enough for any boy or girl, without the usual black super-hero stuff or girlie pink. Babies will loke gazing at him, toddlers will want to sit with him ( or on him), preschoolers will turn him into a playmate who listens to their stories as well as being a huggable pal. Hercule is elegant and hand knitted of 100% cotton in Peru. He's really like a piece of folk art, a memorable doll that will be enjoyed for years.
Pricey? Yes. Deliciously special? Indeed! All ages.

Fisher Price Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Home
(Fisher-Price $90 Score:)

Finding an activity center for babies and toddlers just got easier with this play center that invites tots to crawl in and out through the red door that swings both ways. There is a peek-a-boo window that lifts, a doorbell that rings, an on and off switch that turns a light on and off, although it has a slow response time and seems to be activated by music as well; so, cause and effect are not quite as clear as they might have been. That said, this activity center also has a clock with hands to turn, and a shape sorter. There is a mailbox and letters to take in and out and the box backs onto the shape sorter, making this another favorite put-and-take or fill-and-dump opportunity. The maker says there are three levels of play so the toy grows with your child. Level one is exploration, level two gives prompts, telling baby what to do (most will be ignored) and level 3 is all about pretend. Marked 6-36 months; we suspect the sweet spot for this toy is really 8-18 months.

Made of 100% recycled plastic this is also dishwasher cleanable. It comes with a book that is mostly forgettable for the very young, but that said, this is a wonderful water toy! 12 months and up, up, up.
