2005 Award
Little Mommy Potty Training Baby
(Fisher-Price $25 Score:) One of the most innovative dolls we’ve tested! She drinks but does not tinkle until she’s on her special potty seat. It’s magic (really creative use of magnets that releases the water)! Unfortunately, she is not tub-able! For an all-vinyl tub-able body, consider Corolle’s anatomically correct girl or boy 14" doll. They're pricier ($40) but very attractive. In the novelty doll category, Potty Elmo PLATINUM AWARD (Fisher-Price $19) is amazing. Give Elmo his sippy cup and you’ll hear him drink; if you don’t get him to the potty, he says, "Oops, Elmo didn’t get to the potty. Accidents happen," and if he makes it, "Elmo can do it and so can you!" One of the best and most polite interactive dolls we’ve ever tested. We pass on Zapf Creations’ Baby Born ($39.99 ) who got low marks from our testers because they had difficulty getting the pretend poop out (no joke).

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2005.

2005 Award
Timber
(Gund $20 Score:) With a full tummy and slightly sad expression, Timber looks like he needs a hug—which is easy to do because his shiny mocha fur is extremely soft.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2005.

(800) 451-4387.

2005 Award
E-L-M-O
(Fisher-Price $29.99 Score:) The latest of the interactive Elmo dolls. Here Elmo does a dance (with body movements) to the tune of "YMCA". Will appeal to parents of a certain generation as well as their kids. Also charming, Happy Ears Eeyore (Fisher-Price $19.99); Eeyore’s ears move as he speaks. (800) 432-5437.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2005.

2006 Award
Lili
(Corolle $60 Score:) Older preschoolers will love the articulated and fashionable 17" Lili dolls. Choose the blond Rose, auburn Melodie, dark brunette Belle, and strawberry blond Flore. Each is dressed in a très jolie outfit that is totally “now.” These will appeal to slightly older girls as well. Think younger American Girl dolls. 4 & up. Also new, Chouquettes ($39.95 1⁄2)—adorable 14" girl dolls come with blond or brunette hair and hairbrush for age-typical play. (800) 668-4846.

2006 Award
Jules
(Corolle $55 Score:) Finding a boy doll is not easy, yet it’s a great gift, especially when there’s a new baby in the family. Meet Jules, a 17" bald baby doll in blue romper with bottle, bib, and pacifier. Like last year’s winner, Lila, he cries, laughs, and babbles. Both are a perfect armful for pretend play. 3 & up. PLATINUM AWARD ’05. (800) 668-4846.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2006.

2006 Award
Baby Annabell
(Zapf Creation $39.99 Score:) For the first time, Annabell cries real tears. After her bottle, she randomly yawns and falls asleep, or starts to cry. Our testers liked the novelty and parents liked the “off” switch option. Crying, babbling Love Me Chou Chou ($49.99 ) disappointed our testers, who thought she was “too heavy… it had a seam on her head—looked like she had a brain surgery.” Take heart, there is still a My First Annabell ($19.95 ) a 14" baby doll, Caucasian or African American, who does whatever your child imagines. This doll is mislabeled 1 & up, however; the pacifier is too small to be safe for toddlers. (877) 629-9273.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2006.
