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.

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.

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.
