Plan Toys Fruit and Veggie Domino Game
(Plan Toys $29.99 Score:)

Twenty-eight colorful dominoes are ready for matching games that require no reading or counting. Matching is by the seven fruits or veggies that kids will soon be able to know and name. But watch out—there are green pears and green peppers. Want to bend the rules and make it a color matching game—why not? A good pre-reading game for older 2's and up. With indented fronts and backs these are easy to grasp. Marked 2 & up.

Plan Toys Bunny Racer
(Plan Toys $12.99 Score:)

Little hands will have no trouble pushing this chunky little bunny around in its nifty little orange racing car with bright green wheels. Bunny's head fits in the hand and is shaped for easy grasping. Fun for crawlers and beginning pretenders. Not exactly a racer, but this is not about speeding, but rather simple locomotion for young toddlers who are just starting their own locomotion skills. If you prefer a brighter look, consider Plan Toys' Chicken Racer, the same size as Bunny Racer only more colorful with red car, blue wheels, and white chick with yellow trims. Bunny or Chicken do not come out of the vehicle for safety reasons. Plan Toys uses sustainable rubber wood that is coated with a non-toxic finish and colors from vegetable dye.1 & up.

Plan Toys Fire Truck Mini Vehicle
(Plan Toys $15.99 Score:)

Just right for small hands, this uncomplicated wooden fire truck is scaled for crawlers and beginning pretenders to roll around. Colored in somewhat muted red vegetable dye, the little driver does not come out (for safety reasons) but he turns as does the light on top as the fire truck rolls along the floor. No sounds, not batteries, no little pieces, no premade story. It is a lovely little vehicle for beginners active play style and early lessons in cause and effect. Plan Toys uses sustainable rubber wood that is coated with a non-toxic finish and colors from vegetable dye.1 & up

Plan Toys Bird Walker
(Plan Toys $100 Score:)

On-the go toddlers will like the noisy parrots that bob up and down as they push this walker wagon around. Loaded with 16 colored blocks they can play another favorite game of fill and dump as they take their deliveries from place to place. This is a pretty heavy walker with an adjustable handle that satisfies beginning walkers who like to hold on to something as they start to walk about on their own two feet. Made of sustainable rubber wood and colored with vegetable dyes, this is one of those toys that will be passed along to younger sibs, cousins and close friends. They say 10 months & up, we say for babies who are up on their feet and pretty steady.

Green Toys Seaplane, Safe Seas Set
(Green Toys $24.99 Score:)

With one propeller and two hefty pontoons this two toned blue seaplane is ready for plenty of dramatic action in the pool or bathtub. It not only floats, the pontoons take on water that is pun to pour out. Made from 100% post-consumer recycled plastic products that are tested for safety. This is a good choice for 1 & up, up, up. Forget the picturebook that is not going to appeal to toddlers. That said, the plane has miles of play value. 1 & up.

Hape Roller Derby
(HaPe $39.99 Score:)

What an unusual ball run! Instead of just rolling down a runway this clever run goes from one side of the wooden wall to the other. The balls roll through circular openings as they zoom down metal tracks, switching sides once, twice, three times and ring a bell as they reach the bottom. Though it does the same thing over and over, for the young toddler repetition is a plus. In a world full of unpredictable things, repetition gives tots a sense of power and control. They love making things do the same thing again and again. This is also a great toy for kids who are developing more complex tracking skills. 1 & up.

Fisher Price Laugh & Learn Smart Stages Home
(Fisher-Price $90 Score:)

Finding an activity center for babies and toddlers just got easier with this play center that invites tots to crawl in and out through the red door that swings both ways. There is a peek-a-boo window that lifts, a doorbell that rings, an on and off switch that turns a light on and off, although it has a slow response time and seems to be activated by music as well; so, cause and effect are not quite as clear as they might have been. That said, this activity center also has a clock with hands to turn, and a shape sorter. There is a mailbox and letters to take in and out and the box backs onto the shape sorter, making this another favorite put-and-take or fill-and-dump opportunity. The maker says there are three levels of play so the toy grows with your child. Level one is exploration, level two gives prompts, telling baby what to do (most will be ignored) and level 3 is all about pretend. Marked 6-36 months; we suspect the sweet spot for this toy is really 8-18 months.
