2007 Award
Paxton Jointed Bear
(Gund $22.99 Score:) Covered with silky curly hair, this reddish-brown bear has tan snout, paw pads and a bean bottom for sitting pretty. 15-inch Paxton also has jointed arms and legs so he can be posed. This bear has a sweet expression and a little more heft than most bears his size.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2007.

Award
No Spill Bubble Tumbler
(Little Kids $2.99 Score:) The No Spill Bubble Tumbler solves that oh so familiar and upsetting moment when the bottle of bubble solution spills all over the ground. Here the wand goes into the container and is loaded with just the right amount of solution to make a bubble. If you turn the container upside down, nothing will spill out, really! The containers come in mini, regular and super sized (with three wands). A great example of a classic toy made even better by an innovative design.

2007 Award
5 in 1 Super Sports Inflatable Bouncer
(Little Tikes $299.99 Score:) The 5 in 1 Super Sports Inflatable Bouncer is the latest from Little Tikes' line of inflatable climber/activity toys. This bouncer measures 10’ x 10’ x 7’. Comes with two hoops but if you have a large group of kids, we’d put the balls away and let them enjoy the bouncing and sliding part of this toy. Comes with a heavy duty blower for quick inflation and a storage bag. The neighborhood of kids that tested this toy loved it and the parents enjoyed that they could put it away at the end of the day without making a permanent commitment of lawn space!

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2007.

2008 Award
Arnold the Snoring Pig
(Gund $30 Score:) Pure novelty! Arnold is a cuddly pink plush pig that snores and moves its ear, mouth, and body when you press its hoof. It’s hard not to smile. Your preschooler will enjoy Arnold--you will too!

2008 Award
Bobbidi
(Gund $18 Score:) Bobbidi is a 15" bear with a large dark brown plush nose, a jaunty long snout, and curly, toffee-colored fur. His feet are over-sized and his arms and legs are floppy. He's a very approachable friendly armful! Also notable: Georgie Jr. (Gund $15), a light honey-colored 13" bear with stringy-looking fur that is silky soft, and a prominent snout with velour-like paw pads.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2008.

2008 Award
Higgins
(Mary Meyer $9 Score:) It’s a tie! Our testers couldn't put down either the very sweet honey-colored dog Higgins (Mary Meyer 8" & 12") with big floppy ears and soft huggable body, or Yardley Jr. (Gund), which is larger in scale—an armful with big floppy honey-colored ears and two-toned white-and-honey body, this darling silky plush pooch has a dark brown velour snout and black beady eyes.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2008.

2008 Award
Grover
(Gund $70 Score:) Close to three feet tall, this 30" full body puppet has an easy-to-activate mouth and openings in the hands so Grover can gesture and talk, with a little help from a friend. Big and cuddly, this will do double duty as a huggable and puppet. Elmo, Ernie, and Cookie Monster are also available. Pricey but special for puppet lovers.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2008.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Butterfly
(Kids Preferred $15 Score:) Bring the magic of Eric Carle's Very Hungry Caterpillar to life with a plush 11" green caterpillar, a multi-colored hand puppet butterfly, or a caterpillar plush puppet. This is a well-executed collection of plush and puppets that are true to the spirit of Carle's work. Makes an ideal present with the book!

2008 Award
Candy Land Castle Game
(Milton Bradley $19.99 Score:) We love this low-tech game that reinforces shape and color concepts. Pull the candy-cane lever and out pops a shape. Players match shape spaces on their gingerbread-cookie playing boards. Preschoolers will like the action of popping shapes, and you can add words that define the colors and shapes.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2008.

2008 Award
Diggity Dog
(International Playthings $19.99 Score:) Players must listen to the number of times the big electronic dog barks and then move their little dog that many spaces. When you land on that space, your magnetized dog picks up a bone. If it matches your dog, you keep the bone in your dog house. Winner is the one with the most bones, of course. A game of chance with listening and simple counting. 3 & up. 2–4 players. 4 & up.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2008.
