Squeakaboos!
(Babalu Inc. $9.99 Score:)

These adorable rattles are perfect for grabbing baby's attention for tracking games and peek-a-boo fun. They are covered in a soft velour type fabric with stitched features. They rattle, when you shake them; squeak when you squeeze the handle, and have crinkle in their ears. The handles are covered in two textures that will eventually be interesting to babies when they are ready to take hold of things. We like that this is a soft rattle that beginners can grasp and not bop themselves with, while their little hands and arm movements are still unsteady. Choose from a wonderful assortment of high contrast zebras, giraffes and brightly colored elephants, lions and other cute animals. Newborn & up.

2014 Award
Kaloo Colors Zig Music Bear
(Janod $44.95 Score:)

Our favorite of the new Kaloo musical toys just right for newborns. You can attach the bear to the side of crib or to a stroller handle (for on the go music).  This cheery colorful bear has all stitched features and an accordian middle that stretches as you pull the wooden handle to activate the music. The old fashion quality of the music is just right for babies. (It plays Put On a Happy Face from Bye Bye Birdie).  Comes in a tall cylinder box that makes this lovely present ready to go for baby showers. Very sweet!  There is also a mini version that comes in a clear vinyl package.

2014 Award
Kaloo Colors Doudou Bear Good Night Owl
(Janod $24.99 Score:)

While it may be tempting to buy a big stuffed animal for a newborn, this little bear will be appreciated much sooner. Truly a first huggable. The smiling bear with all stitched features (including owls on his blue romper) that has velour knotties at each of the four corners that are just right for little fingers to grasp, touch (and let's face it, taste!). Inside of a regular body, it has a "blankie" body made out of super soft fabric. Comes in a lovely gift box.  There is also a sweet Rabbit version with a pink body.

Kaloo Perle Musical Baby Doudou
(Janod $34 Score:)

A sweet little cream bear with stitched features has a pull string at the back of his neck. Pull it and you'll activate a lovely old fashion music box. Just right for new borns. As with other Kaloo products, the bear comes is a round gift box making this a memorable gift for a baby shower.  We also love their more colorful Zig Musical Bear that has an accordian middle that moves upwards as the music plays.

Hang this tan bunny in the stroller or crib and pull the big wooden ring to activate the music box that plays as bunny's accordion folded body moves up. Bunny's tan ears are lined with licks of green, the neck tie is wine colored velour, the body is turquoise and green, and his feet are yellow and orange. With stitched features, this is one of those easy to take along music boxes that can be soothing on an afternoon away from home. Newborn & up.

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.

Blabla Pig Rattle
(blabla kids $20 Score:)

A seven-inch crocheted pig with a jingle rattle locked inside. Fits into little hands and soft enough for baby to use with safety, even little babies who typically have jerky hand movements until they gain greater control. The sound is not startling. Use this with new babies for tracking games. There is also a black and white cow, a blue and white bunny and others that are pretty adorable. This is one of a line of stylish products done in Peru at a workshop for women. They are made of 100% cotton and filled with poly and machine washable.

Age: Infants. Award Year: 2013.
