2007 Award
The Very Books Block Puzzle
(Mudpuppy Press $13 Score:) Nine cubes can be turned to create six different images from several beloved Eric Carle books such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar, The Very Quiet Cricket, The Very Lonely Firefly, and others. These images are painterly. Also noteworthy and PLATINUM AWARD-winning in Carle’s exuberant style, 1, 2, 3 to the Zoo Great Big Puzzle ($15 5). A 24" x 36" floor puzzle with 24 big pieces. Carle’s picture book animals are on their way to the zoo by train. Count the creatures from 1 to 10 and don’t forget to find the mouse that is hiding on every train car. 3 & up. Still top rated in this line, Our World ($15 4), an oversized 24-piece floor puzzle (24" x 36") with each of the continents, is illustrated with animals, people, and landmarks. Mudpuppy’s storybook puzzles are objects of beauty, celebrating the best in picture book art! They say 3; we’d say more like 4 & up. (800) 670-7441.

2007 Award
Trapecolo
(HaPe $24.99 Score:) Create colorful patterns with 180 trapezoid shapes that fit into a large six-sided wooden frame. Patterns are shown in the brochure, but not full size, so these are more challenging. Marked 4–99, we’d say more like 6 & up. Making a design with these multicolored blocks takes visual perception as well as patience and problem-solving skills. For a simpler set, we still suggest a classic BLUE CHIP Parquetry Blocks Super Set (Learning Resources $26.95 5), thirty-two geometrically shaped tiles kids arrange on top of 20 colorful patterns. BUt this new set from HaPe is more challenging.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2007.
