North American Bear Little Princess, 14-inch Doll
(North American Bear Co. $25 Score:)

A charming Little Princess Ballerina with a hot pink torso and lighter pink satin tutu. Her clothes do not come off, so she is right for toddlers who will appreciate the feel of the fabric and the bows on her pink slippers. Her brownish velour hair is not comb-able but is sewn in place in the shape of an up-sweep. With her long legs and arms, stitched-on features and lack of complications, she makes an easy to take along huggable for all ages.

Age: Toddlers, Preschool. Award Year: 2015.

Also new this season, Reagan, a Groovy Girl with reddishyarn ponytail laced with some blue threads to match the trim on her dress and flowery tights.

Playskool Play All Day Elmo
(Hasbro $59.99 Score:)

This season's interactive Elmo is larger and softer than usual, which makes him cuddlier than Elmos of the past. There are two modes of play: a setting for toddlers with simplest games and another for preschoolers, a nice feature, although his speech tends to be less clear than previous Elmo dolls. There are no accessories to put on and take off. All the action is built into the doll. To activate, just squeeze Elmo's big soft orange nose and he plays eight games. Of course, Elmo is "the boss" of all, telling kids let's play pat-a-cake, hop and count, freeze dance, guess colors, red light/green light, and animal sounds.  Elmo also takes naps and sings a lullaby before he goes quiet until someone is ready to wake him up and play some more. Marked for 18 months to 4 years. The swet spot ages are probably just between those-- as in 2's to late 3's.

2015 Award
North American Bear Baby Hero Dolls
(North American Bear Co. $24.99 Score:)

Here she is ready to right wrongs, to rescue those who need rescuing and fly into the face of whatever she must do! You can say that again for Baby Hero Boy Doll. Both Baby Heroes are done up with masks and capes as all proper heroes must be AND Baby Hero Girl has two small red ribbons to adorn her long double pigtails. Made of several fabrics with different textures. Their bodies, capes and high red boots are done in velvety velour plush while their other clothes (unremovable) are of lovely silky satin. Of course the idea of superheroes will be lost on very young children, but this might even be a good comfort toy for early school aged kids who are dealing with health or social challenges. All ages.

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.
