2014 Awards
Swimways Light-up Beach Ball
(Hearthsong $12.98 Score:)

This is not your mother's beach ball--not yours either. I's a big 20" red, white and blue ball that glows from a strong LED, flashes streaks of red, blue, and green whenever it is tossed, caught or bounced. Fun for swim parties after sunset or a game of catch or beach ball volleyball. You get two balls with batteries and impact-activated LEDs inside. Marked 3 & up, but really this is a ball that will be enjoyed by older kids, teens and even adults. You'll find this on

(eeBoo $18.95 Score:)

Three fabric covered balls to learn to juggle with. It comes with a poster that starts you out with juggling one ball, then two and finally, lot of luck--three! A fun choice for active play that challenges dexterity and eye hand in a BIG-G-G way!

2008 Award
HearthSong Great Big Outdoor Playball
(HearthSong $59.98 Score:) When they say BIG, they really mean it. This ball is 52" in diameter! We highly recommend that you buy the electric pump they sell ($29.98) if you don't already have a pump. Each chamber of the blue and green ball must be inflated separately. The ball will be enjoyed by early school aged kids. EDITORS NOTE: Because the ball has two openings that a child can climb into (it was the first thing everyone wanted to do)--this toy requires complete supervision. The company has submitted our safety verification form. Note, we did not test this independently in a lab.
