2012 Award
Crayola Digital Light Designer
(Crayola $59.99 Score:)

Forget about paper, now kids can draw on a "Spinning Light Canvas" that is really a light dome. It is activated with a stylus that is used to draw anywhere on the round surface that lights up as they draw. Kids can make drawings, animations, and messages. They can keep favorite creations and there are eight game and activity apps to add to the fun. This does come with a warning about this being an inappropriate toy for those who are photosensitive and have seizures from flashing lights and patterns. 6 & up.

eeBoo Sketchbook with Glow in the Dark Covers
(eeBoo $6.00 Score:)

60 pages in these handsome spiral sketchpads 8.5 x 11.5. Choose from the many covers to appeal to the child you are shopping for this season. We like the fact that there are covers to appeal to boys as well as girls and pencil kits that match. This gives a real gifty look to what we consider basic gear for school-aged kids who will use these kinds of supplies well past the holiday season.

eeBoo Carnival Glitter Glue
(eeBoo $5 Score:)

Who can resist the thrill of a fresh pack of glitter glue? Use them for drawing, decorating cards or packages, add it to gift tags. eeBoo has several mixed sets with narrow tips that allow you to draw with some accuracy. Each set comes with four glue sticks of related hues.  They do look a bit like candy sticks and choosing the colors you may be hard to do...they all look so tempting to kids who like crafts.

SNAP: An appealing way to get kids to develop hand strength. Cover up the work space, cover up the cloths and let the fun begin. Allow kids to explore in an open-ended way for starters. Then, print your child's name on a big piece of paper and have her trace the lines to make a name sign.

Age: Preschool, Early School Years. Award Year: 2012.

2012 Award
eeBoo Learn to Draw with Lizzy Rockwell-Book 1
(Lizzy Rockwell, eeBoo $6.99 Score:)

First in a new series of drawing books for school aged kids. We usually prefer a blank sheet of paper, but we know that kids of a certain age begin to want their end products to look more realistic. Having some techniques for making that happen can be helpful. This is the first of a series that shows kids the step-by-step process of drawing simple items such as a bird, a cup and saucer, a tulip. These instructions are somewhat like the Ed Emberly drawing books but less cartoonish. The instruction pages are followed by a double-page illustration that provides a frame and setting. Here kids can use what they have learned in a more open-ended picture.  Tuck this in to your travel bag for a long flight or for quiet time at your destination. 5 & up.
