Mamas and Papas Large Activity Floor Mat
(Mamas and Papas $39.99 Score:)

A brightly patterned floor mat that is big enough for twins to share. It's 55 inches by 33 inches with a reversible waterproof red side that can be used out of doors and has some texture that will keep it from sliding around indoors. The topside is cotton with bold graphic squares, each with a happy pattern. Stripes, dots, and graphics of bird, tree, snail, butterfly with liftable wings, a hidden squeaker in the apple graphic, and more.  One square at the far end has a mirror for baby to discover and there are loops for attaching toys.

Sassy La-lee Chime and Chew
(Sassy $5.99 Score:)

Attach this jolly yellow non-ster to infant carrier or stroller and it will make a quiet chiming sound as it moves. Little La-lee has patterned fabric arms that dangle and a tiny mirror on its belly. Older babies will eventually like chomping on the dotted teether that dangles from its legs.

2012 Awards
Sassy My First Rattles
(Sassy $5.99 Score:)

Choose a predominantly hot pink or blue set of ring or dumbbell rattles. These are classic rattles that have been updated many times, but the basic shapes are exactly on the mark for baby. There are patterns for visual stimulation, textures to interest little hands, and quiet rattle sounds that are not too loud. In other words, this is just right.

SNAP: Use these colorful rattles for tracking games and early interactions. At first you will do all the actions to get a reaction. These are easy to grab and fit well in little hands when your child is ready to reach out and take hold of things.

2012 Award
Infantino Pop & Play Rattle Pod
(Infantino $6.99 Score:)

We like the visual playfulness of this rollerball rattle. Just a swipe of the hand sets the patterned ball twirling and changing its look. There are tiny beads in a see through ring that add a quiet sound. Attach to car seat or stroller or haul one out for play time interactions. These were designed forInfantino's Pop & Swap Gym that we passed on, but this and the Chime Pod are fun stand-alones. Newborn & up

2012 Award
Sassy Light-up Caterpillar
(Sassy $8.99 Score:)

Attach this big eyed fabric caterpillar to the stroller or use it for lap games. There are four segments, black on white polka-dots and white on black dots, a green velour like head and a bright yellow corduroy segment, as well. You can hang them all on the yellow ring or interest baby in grabbing the textured purple ring. Push the segment that says press and it has small lights that blink and electronic music. We are not thrilled with high pitched electronic music, but this is something only an adult will be able to activate. You can use it for auditory tracking by moving it from the left or right side of baby's head. Newborn & up.
