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 $49.99 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.

Little Tikes Ultimate Cook Kitchen
(Little Tikes $150 Score:)

Our test family gave this kitchen setting very high grades. Our three-year old tester's mom tells us "he is having a ball with it..." He loves every detail of this kitchen and especially likes to make them Cappuccino and asking them if "we need some coffee?" She likes the fact that it went together easily and is also being enjoyed for pretend play by his six and seven-year old siblings. Although some of the hanging pieces do not stay in place, they had no complaints. It has been used daily since it arrived and as our tester's mom wrote, she is impressed with the durability of Little Tikes products... "if three boys can't destroy it, it has to be made well." We like the fact that his kitchen is not gender specific and will be enjoyed for years of dramatic play by boys and girls. 2 +

Corolle Mon Premier Sky Stroller
(Corolle $34.99 Score:)

We're always happy to report when there's a blue stroller on the market. This is a very light weight white and blue plastic stroller that is designed for Corolle's new Babipouce Blue Star Doll (also dressed in a blue romper). This is not the sturdiest of strollers but it gets high marks for color choice.

Corolle Bebe Bath Doll
(Corolle $52.50 Score:)

This 12" Corolle doll is really ready for bath time! Comes in a pink suit with a mask/snorkel, water wings and flippers. Designed for toddlers 18 months and up, this may do the trick to get reluctant bathers into the water. The polystyrene beads help the doll dry quickly.

Corolle Babipouce Blue Stars Doll
(Corolle $40 Score:)

Corolle's line of Babipouce fills the bill as a great place to start in doll land. With all a soft fabric, huggable body and soft vinyl face (with painted featured), this is a safe choice for older babies and toddlers. The blue romper and coordinating velour hat (with knotted top) will be pleasing to the touch. Very sweet. If you're looking for a "pink" version, look at last year's Platinum Award winner, Babipouce Pink Cotton Flower Doll.
