2014 Award
Kaloo Colors Round Doudou Rabbit Flower
(Janod $24.99 Score:)

While it may be tempting to buy a big stuffed animal for a newborn, this little rabbit will be appreciated much sooner. Truly a first huggable. The smiling rabbit with all stitched features has licks of pink and green in various textures that are just right for little fingers to grasp, touch (and let's face it, taste!). Inside of a regular body, it has a round "blankie" skirt out of super soft fabric. Comes in a lovely gift box.  There is also a sweet Bear version with a blue "blankie body.

Earlyears Soft Baby Blocks
(International Playthings $16.99 Score:)

Four colorful fabric blocks that are purposely under-stuffed so that baby can easily grasp them. Each has decorative appliqués of geometric shapes and bright patterns and textures. Blocks have their own distinctive sound--a crinkle, rattle and squeak. Good for beginning lap games as well as being soft and safe enough for baby to handle when she's ready to reach out and take hold of things. These are basic gear props with multiple uses. Newborn and up.

2012 Award
Lamaze Flip Flop Fred
(Tomy $12.99 Score:)

No political connections here. A small green turtle that is cleverly designed in fabric with a reversible soft shell that is satiny on one side with many fabric patterns and bold black and white dots on the other side. The shell has crinkle sounds and knottie tabs in satin. This is one of those little toys that will be enjoyed for tracking and fingering and even peek-a-boo games when you make the turtle disappear and reappear. Newborn & up.

2011 Award
Stretchy Sandwich
(Alex $21.99 Score:)

This whopper of a sandwich includes two velour buns that have built-in jingles. The best part is that the multi-layers (all ten) are stitched together loosely so that it opens like an accordian. The layers all make a wrinkling, crinkly sound when they're moved or touched. You can hang this one up on a car seat holder for younger babies to bat at- and older babies will enjoy tasting and exploring this yummy sandwich. 3 mos. & up. There is also Stertchy puppy (that has the same in between layered aspect) but we prefer the sandwich.

Manhattan Toy Chicka Chicka Boom Boom Coconut Tree Mirror
(Manhattan Toy $14.99 Score:)

This very decorative small mirror, inspired by the book by the same title, is a good floor toy for parent and child interactions. There is a small mirror on one side of a cushion shaped toy with green crinkle leaves, ribbons, knotties, teether, and twists of terrycloth and velour. With all these things to feel..the really big show comes when you pull the ring to make the whole thing vibrate. It's not a big showy toy, but there's a lot to explore. Also in the same collection 123 Coconut Tree, has a lift up leaf with three textures and crinkle sounds reveals a small mirror, a red dot and three rings to finger. There is also a textured teether attached for those moments. Introduce this as a lap toy and then you can hang this on the stroller for gazing or hand it to baby to explore independently.
