2012 Award
eeBoo 24 Pencils Bird Tin Artist Colors
(eeBoo $15 Score:)

A beauty of a gift tin of colored pencils. The flat metal tin is printed with birds, a flowering tree and flowers. It will make a gift to enjoy for months ahead. Sometime we forget how welcome a basic set of art supplies can be as compared to the novelty gifts that lose their pazazz almost as soon as the wrappings are gone. 5 & up.

2012 Award
Janod Kubix with Letters and Numbers
(Janod $28.99 Score:)

A colorful set of solid wood blocks with letters and numbers imprinted on them. They are marked 18 months and up. We suspect kids that young will like filling and dumping them and eventually lining them up. Building upwards will be something adults or older sibs can do for little ones. They will like knocking them down. This is definitely a toy that will get lots of mileage. Learning letter names and the sounds they say comes much later. 18 months and up, up,up.

2012 Award
Crayola Digital Light Designer
(Crayola $59.99 Score:)

Forget about paper, now kids can draw on a "Spinning Light Canvas" that is really a light dome. It is activated with a stylus that is used to draw anywhere on the round surface that lights up as they draw. Kids can make drawings, animations, and messages. They can keep favorite creations and there are eight game and activity apps to add to the fun. This does come with a warning about this being an inappropriate toy for those who are photosensitive and have seizures from flashing lights and patterns. 6 & up.

2012 Award
eeBoo Holiday Chain Set
(eeBoo $10.00 Score:)

We have mixed emotions over this set of 24 foot long pieces of two sided print paper. The pieces had links at the end so no glue is needed, though we think it takes more dexterity to fasten them than most young kids will have. We suspect you will end up giving them glue to make them stick. That said, they are highly decorative and thicker than most chains we made as kids.

2012 Award
eeBoo Sketchbook with Glow in the Dark Covers
(eeBoo $6.00 Score:)

60 pages in these handsome spiral sketchpads 8.5 x 11.5. Choose from the many covers to appeal to the child you are shopping for this season. We like the fact that there are covers to appeal to boys as well as girls and pencil kits that match. This gives a real gifty look to what we consider basic gear for school-aged kids who will use these kinds of supplies well past the holiday season.
