2008 Award
Groovy Girls Poseable Dolls
(Manhattan Toy $15.95 Score:) This continues to be a BLUE CHIP collection of soft 13" multi-ethnic dolls with stitched features, yarn hair, and groovy clothes. The big addition this year is a collection of dolls with bendable limbs. Happily, there is a boy doll in this line. Still the superlative gift, consider a Supersized Groovy Girl ($50), a 40" child-sized fabric doll that’s like a pretend play pal.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2008.

2008 Award
American Girls Julie and Ivy
(American Girl $87 Score:) In the American Girl collection of dolls, each comes with a book that introduces girls to a bit of history through stories. Julie is a nine-year-old of the '70s, meaning she is caught up in the women’s rights movement, Title IX, the Bicentennial and oh, yes, her parents' divorce. Talk about hitting all bases—this does it. Julie is about to move from her house in San Francisco, near Chinatown and her best friend Ivy ($87). Both dolls are being launched simultaneously with six books about them, authored by two well known writers, Megan McDonald and Lisa Yee. 7 & up.

Age: Early School Years,Later School Years. Award Year: 2008.

2009 Award
National Geographic Kids Animals
(International Playthings $19.99 Score:) A wide range of animals are available in this line. Whether you have a child fascinated by reptiles or mammals (ice animals or jungle)...there's probably a winner to bring home. Our suggestion- bring one of these plush toys home with a book that you can share. Learning more about the creatures we share this planet with is one of the "greenest" messages around. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

2009 Award
Lubies
(Rocket USA $9.99 Score:) A collection of witty plush balls in the shapes of a variety of animals. They are marketed to school aged kids, but we’re willing to bet preschoolers are going to want them, too. These really cute ball shaped dolls are not just great collectables. We’re sure kids will use them as soft balls to toss about indoors. They might even inspire some pretend/story telling. They say they are safe for all ages but they are targeted for 7 & up. We’d say 3’s and up will love them. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

Age: Toddlers,Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2009.
