2009 Award
eeBoo Preschool Color Memory Game
(eeBoo $12.95 Score:)

Lovely big biscuit size playing pieces are just right for this concentration style color matching game with 20 scallop edged cards and 10 sets of colors. Not too many cards for beginners. A good way to reinforce color names and turn taking. The latter may be harder to learn thatn the color names. 3 & up.

2009 Award
Step2 Neighborhood Fun Center
(Step 2 $279.99 Score:)

We really liked the concept of this playhouse that combines active play with a setting for pretend. One side has a slide just right for steady on their feet toddlers and preschoolers. Another side has an activity wall- complete with a ring toss, crawl through door and hoop/loop ball target (comes with balls for tossing). The third side has a place for real or pretend snacks (there's a small table and two attached seats). The fourth side has a door and pass through window. If you don't have room for both a playhouse and a slide--this certainly will fill the bill.

2008 Award
Horton Hears a Who You to the Rescue Game
(I Can Do That Games $19.99 Score:)

With the recent release of the movie, this game based on Horton Hears a Who! is sure to be a hit. As in a scavenger hunt, you hide tiny Who cards around the house. Players race against a timer, wearing a Horton hat with Velcro trunk, to find missing Whos. The one who rescue the most Whos wins. Great fun!

2009 Award
Lego Road Construction Set
(Lego Systems, Inc. $19.99 Score:)

Kids who are fascinated with vehicles will be able to build more than three chunky wheeled trucks—a steam roller, earth mover with lift, and dump truck. Therr sets of instructions includes 15 different building ideas...not to mention the ones young builders will come up with on their own. A great gift for under $20. Says 4 & up. We think 4’s will need assistance. Good for dramatic play and as props for block buildings.

2008 Awards
Step2 Canopy Wagon
(Step 2 $99.99 Score:) Our 2 and 3 year old testers loved going for a ride in this new wagon that comes with a removable plastic canopy cover. Kids tend to love covers since it makes a smaller cozy space - that's just for them. Parents like them since they keep the sun out. Note--this wagon does not have a door. Our testing family did not miss the door option and indicated that the kids had no trouble getting out of the wagon. Comes with seatbelts--a nice added safety feature. There are also deep well holes (also a plus) and two cup holders. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

Rolliphant Slides
(Edushape $23.99 Score:) If you've read our reviews long enough over the years, you'd know that we love tracking ball runs and we also like bath toys. So here's a really amazing toy in our book-- a ball run designed for the bath. Three elephant heads have trunks that connect to each other. The over sized balls travel slowly (a plus) out of the elephants' mouths and down their trunks. Comes with three balls. One has a spinner in the middle of it-- really neat. Ok, we admit it, we're toy geeks. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

2008 Award
Peter Rabbit
(Kids Preferred $30 Score:)

A super soft 15" Peter Rabbit in non-removable blue jacket with gold stitched buttons or a smaller 11" Cotton Tail ($18 ) with a pink cape that does not come off; both done in organic cotton and oh, so green! Peter has all the details-but is softer and more floppy than many storybook dolls that are often more for display than play. Those who know the books will enjoy these.

Happy Moments Busybuds Monkey
(Gund $23 Score:)

Toddlers will have no trouble bonding with this long legged red and tan monkey. Busybuds Monkey is 19” long with slender easy to grab arms, legs and tail. Fabric is bright red fleece with knit legs and hands. In the same Happy Moments line consider two other good choices. There is an adorable Busybuds Frog, a long legged green and yellow frog as well as a cute Busybuds Chick in yellow and melon with striped leg and floppy wings. These whimsical dolls have full bottoms so they can sit, but they are each a perfect armful for toddlers who love dolls that are extra big without being too heavy to tote about. 1 & up.

Kid Galaxy My First RC Dinos
(Kid Galaxy $23 Score:)

If you have a preschooler who has caught the dino bug, these small remote dinos will be a hit. New this year, is a very friendly Brontosaurus.  He joins last year's award winning T REX and the Triceratops-- all are easy to control (both with one button). They're friendly, not scary. A great first remote control vehicle for the three and up crowd.
