2007 Award
eeBoo Tea Party Game
(eeBoo $15 Score:)

Our three-and-a-half-year-old tester loved the big playing pieces and the tablecloth that add to the pretend part of this simple game. Players use a spinner to collect the pieces of the tea set needed for their party. There are no skills involved in this luck-of-the-draw game.  Graphics are beautiful and the game is on target for the preschool set. Picnic Game ($15 ) uses the same idea with a few ants thrown into the mix! Both are winners! 3 & up.

LeapFrog Fridge Phonics Magnetic Set
(LeapFrog $24.99 Score:)

For the 21st-century child, magnetic letters that talk! Put the "magnetic phonics reader" onto the fridge and it will play one capital letter at a time. The toy will say and sing each letters name and sing the sound they say. Letters are raised to give kids the feel for their shapes. Use these for letter name and sound recognition.  Look for the Fridge Words Magnetic Word Builder version for simple three letter word games. This is labeled 2 & up, but is more appropriate for preschoolers and early school kids. We're heard that the toy will scratch stainless steel fridge doors...so find another home for this if that is what you have.

2008 Award
Twister Scram
(Milton Bradley $14.95 Score:) Twister Scram is not really Twister in the traditional sense but lots of fun to play for the 4 & up crowd. Here the play is more like musical chairs. Comes with 20 round colored mats and a spinner. When the caller spins and announces the color everyone runs to be the first to jump on the corresponding colored mat. The challenge you use one less mat than you have players. Designed for 3-5 players. Rounds are quick so there are lots of opportunities to win. Also fun and more in keeping with the original game is Twister Take Out ($14.95). Here the original mat folds up into a take along bag and the spinner comes on top of a Frisbee styled disk (take the spinner part off when you want to play with the disk). This version will appeal to tweens and teens (and their parents). 8 & up.
