2015 Award
Ambi Magic Man
(Galt $18 Score:)

A little clown is sitting on a ball that tips and rolls and moves about with just a pat of a little hand. Marked for 12 months and up, this is a toy for tots who are able to crawl or toddle after it. Its quirky action matches that active play style of young toddlers. A good 1st birthday toy.

New Sprouts Reel It!
(Learning Resources $24.99 Score:)

Pretend fishing for your toddler's bathtub. A small green pail holds the fish that get caught on the little fisherman's fishing pole. There is no line to reel in and out, but there's a pretend reel that makes a good sound. Chances are the loop on the fish will be hooked with a two handed operation, but the fun of pretending is there and even that kind of two handed action helps develop eye hand coordination along with the imagination. Marked 2 & up; we think threes will like it more.

Kaloo Petite Rose Musical Doll
(kalll $35 Score:)

A huggable 10" musical bunny with pink body and dress and purple leggings. None of the clothes come off and the features are stitched. Best of all, with a pull of the tail the music box inside plays a Russian folk tune. With no hard key to wind this is a safe huggable for babies and toddlers.

Kids Preferred Carter's Bumpy Ball
(Kids Preferred $15 Score:)

A fabric ball with bright patterns and colors and bumpy knobs that little hands can grab. Most are soft and squeezable, two have see-through domes with colorful beads inside that make a great rattle sound. A fun choice for first social roly-poly games.

Playskool Stack 'n Stow Cups
(Hasbro $7.99 Score:)

These are not your typical stack and nesting cups. Instead there is a base and seven shallow rimmed discs shaped with easy to grab tabs. Each one has a cup-out shape in the center: a star, triangle, square, etc. The shapes can be stacked or nested in size order on the base or not. For stacking you will need to place the lion's face on the base. For nesting the pieces fit into each other and then can be capped with the lion's face and turned to hold it all together. Placing the lion's face in place for either operation will take adult hands. That said, this is a nice twist on an old toy concept that can be used to introduce and reinforce color names, shapes, size order and dexterity. Marked for over 9 months, be forewarned, chances are some of the pieces will be missing before your child is a toddler and able to do the size order part. That said, babies will like the multiple pieces to take apart, toss, teethe on and bang together. It's one of those toys kids return to and it can help develop eye hand skills and visual perception. A new twist on stacking and nesting.

Fisher-Price Roller Blocks Play Wall
(Fisher-Price $34.99 Score:)

A play wall intended for the vertical baby and young toddler crowd. The two-sided plastic wall comes with four blocks to use on either side of the toy. One side has three ramps and the other side has knobs-- each offers a different experience for dropping the blocks. Normally this type of toy would come with balls rather than squares and probably would have worked better. Of added interest, each of the cubes come with balls encased that will spin. Marked 6 month-3 years. More realistic sweet spot is 6-12 months.

Cloud b Twilight Buddies, Sheep
(Cloud b $34.95 Score:)

This soft sheep projects a starry night sky of soft lights on the ceiling of the nursery for little ones to gaze at as they go to sleep. A built-in timer turns the light show off after 45 minutes. This projects three-color options: green, blue, and amber. Just as you would not put a pillow in a crib, this is not meant to be in a crib, but rather in the room. Soft to the touch, this is also a cuddly but quiet good choice for toddlers and preschoolers who find comfort in having a nightlight rather than a totally darkened bedroom.

Fisher-Price 3-in-1 Bounce, Stride and Ride Elephant
( $44.99 Score:)

A versatile toy that can be used as a seat for bouncing on, as a ride on with foot to the floor action, or they can stand behind it and push. It has music and lights and happily, it has a button to turn the sound off. Some assembly is needed but it is not difficult. A word of warning, your baby will need to have long enough legs to straddle it. Marked 9 months to 3 years, but the sweet spot for this is more like 12-18 months.

Manhattan Toy Playtime Activity Cart
(Manhattan Toy $74 Score:)

For toddlers, a cart for loading and unloading is a favorite plaything. Unlike many so-called walkers for the less than steady on their feet beginners, this one is surprisingly stabile, even for tots who are still pulling themselves up. It has stoppers on the back that add stabilization. It is not weighted, but very well designed and well-balanced. It also has sliding gears on the side for sit-down fun. The wooden cart has a fabric pouch that attaches with Velcro-like closures and its big wooden wheels have rubber treads for better traction. This is a piece of basic gear that will transport dolls, teddy bears, blocks and whatever else your toddler decides needs to be on the move. Though it is pricey, it is painted in gender free bright primary colors, it can be passed along to baby brothers and sisters and cousins in the family. 12 months and up.

Alilo G6 Cute Rabbit Player Children's English Song & Story Player Machine
(Alilo $59.99 Score:)

An awesome bunny (available in pink or blue, that is a combination night light, music player, story teller, recorder and customizable player that you can start using with infants and well beyond. The pre-recorded music, both songs an just instrumental, is pleasant and not the typical tinny electronic stuff. Push the light switch and bunny's ears light up and change color slowly and without big brightness. It comes with 20 nursery rhymes and stories that preschoolers will enjoy and you can customize it and add your own stories and music. The plastic body is made tough and the battery is rechargable. You can lock the settings and oh, yes, the volume control(built into the tail) is easy to adjust and has some real range, not just high and low. It comes loaded with a micro SD card slot and mini USB port to update content. One of the most innovative toys we received late this holiday season. Marked 12 months and up, though we think the music on a table in an infants's room would be fine. It's not a toy you would give a 12 month old to handle either. For the very young, this is a listening or watching toy. Preschoolers are the ones who will want to learn how to push the buttons.

SNAP: A night light, music player, story teller, this is a gift that will be enjoyed by children from infants to well beyond preschoolers. Best of all you can record storeis, and music of your own choice to the extensive library.
