Manhattan Toy Go! Puppy
(Manhattan Toy $12 Score:)

A fun-filled first birthday toy with all the action and repetition that toddlers adore. DOn't be fooled by the image. This is not a big ride-on. It's floor-toy that kids activate with their hands. Puppy can simply roll along or for faster action, push down on its back and it really takes off. Great good fun for crawlers and up on their feet tots who will love making the action happen. A good way to learn about cause and effect as well as giving kids a sense of power by being able to make it all happen. 12 months & up

Vtech Smart Shots Sports Center
(Vtech $39.99 Score:)

Tots with big siblings who like to shoot hoops can play their own games with this low to the ground electronic hoop with a soccer net at the base. It comes with two balls for either game and responds when set by cheering and encouraging or by counting the number of times your player scores. It has an animated scoreboard and plays 50 + melodies and sounds. Our tester's mom liked that it combined active play with language and number concepts. 12 months & 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.

Janod Xylo Roller
(Janod $44.99 Score:)


Pull toys are always fun for true walkers and this one is also entertaining for sit down play. Made of gaily painted wood, it has an attached stick for striking the metal keys, which, by the way have a pleasant tone and plays a full octave. That cannot be said for most toys of this kind. Expensive, yes, but it  will go the distance and keep on playing. This is a toy that can be passed along to younger members of the family when it is outgrown.It is a pretty large pull toy and will be enjoyed most by bigger tots who are steady on their feet. 18 months & up.

Chicco Sit 'n Ride Train
(Chicco $54.99 Score:)

Low to the ground for young toddlers to push or ride on. There's a lift up seat that holds treasures and the steering device on the front end really does steer! That is not a given on most ride-ons these days. A sound device also fits in the steering mechanism. You can turn the sound totally off or turn it down. It has multiple sounds - a train tooting, a bell, dog, goat, and some less than thrilling music. Still, toddlers will like pushing the buttons and making things happen and may even begin to see the connection between the images on the buttons and the sounds they activate. They will also love the handles on either side of the train that activate a squeaker on one side and a twirling black and yellow barbershop-post on the other. They say 12 months & up. We'd say this is a good choice for tots who are fairly steady on their feet and that will vary from one child to the next. Some will be ready at 12 months -  others not till 16-18 months.

2013 Award
Fisher-Price Musical Walking Lion
(Fisher-Price $24.99 Score:)

A great push around toy for toddlers who still feel more secure holding on as they begin to let go and toddle. The back end has some give, so as baby pulls up it is less likely to go flying, though it is not weighted. For sit and play time, the front end has a jolly looking lion with lots of moving parts that give sensory feedback--a peek-a-boo mirror, musical keys, colorful beads, and a butterfly that slides. A gender-free toy that helps develop both gross and fine motor skills. They say 6-36 months.  It will fit better somewhere between that time--say for beginning walkers of 12-24 months, depending on when your child begins to walk.
