2014 Award
Corolle Bebe Bath Doll
(Corolle $52.50 Score:)

This 12" Corolle doll is really ready for bath time! Comes in a pink suit with a mask/snorkel, water wings and flippers. Designed for toddlers 18 months and up, this may do the trick to get reluctant bathers into the water. The polystyrene beads help the doll dry quickly.

Bebe Calin Maria Baby Doll
(Corolle $42 Score:)

The latest from Corolle's wonderful line of 12-inch Calin dolls - ideal for older toddlers.   We love that this is a multi-cultural collection and that there is always a boy doll in the mix.  They are hand washable and have soft vinyl heads, legs and arms. Their  beautifully finished rompers also add to the appeal. Their bald heads are a safe choice for toddlers who are still mouthing toys. Their bean-bag bodies allow them to sit in many poses and their sleeping eyes open and close. Best of all they are light and cuddly for early pretend play.

2014 Award
Corolle Miss Pink Star and Blanket
(Corolle $42 Score:)

If you're looking for a first baby doll, this soft fabric doll with easy to grasp arms and legs is ideal. The doll has a vinyl face with all painted features (including the hair) - making this a safer choice for older babies and younger toddlers. The pink romper and coordinating velour hat (with knotted top) will be pleasing to the touch. Very sweet. This set comes boxed with a little blanket. And as with all Corolle dolls, they smell lightly of vanilla.

Corolle Babipouce Blue Stars Doll
(Corolle $40 Score:)

Corolle's line of Babipouce fills the bill as a great place to start in doll land. With all a soft fabric, huggable body and soft vinyl face (with painted featured), this is a safe choice for older babies and toddlers. The blue romper and coordinating velour hat (with knotted top) will be pleasing to the touch. Very sweet. If you're looking for a "pink" version, look at last year's Platinum Award winner, Babipouce Pink Cotton Flower Doll.

2014 Award
A Library Book for Bear
(By Bonny Becker/ illus by Kady MacDonald Denton, Candlewick $16.99 Score:)

Just when you thought you did not need another book about bears or another one about going to the library, along comes an absolute gem with perfect picture book pace and pitch. Bear regrets that he agreed to go to the library with his friend Mouse. Of course, bear goes but takes his negative views along. With few words and illustrations that deliver more than words alone could ever do, this is an endearing story about a bear who knows what he wants and gets it, too. 4 & up.

Leo Loves Baby Time
(By Anna McQuinn/ ilus Ruth Hearson, Charlesbridge $8.99 Score:)

Leo goes to a baby group and enjoys being with others as they play peek-a-boo, songs and other baby games with their moms and caregivers. The art features a multicultural crowd and the book itself is made of sturdy cardboard stock that will not rip easily in little hands. A good lap book for the very young. 6 months and up.

Color for Baby
(By Yana Peel, Candlewick $21.99 Score:)

Four board books come boxed as an art show for babies. They feature more than forty famous works by contemporary artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Henri Matisse, Robert Indiana, Andy Warhol, Jeff Koons and others. Each little accordion paged book features a single color, as well. These are fun to share and talk about. There are no words on the page--they will come from what you and your lap sitter have to say about what you see. Sure to appeal to art lovers, this may be more for adults than babies, that said, art lovers will bring their own stories to these pages and that is what lap babies need. 

Age: Infants, Toddlers. Award Year: 2014.
