Candy Land DVD Game
(Milton Bradley $29.99 Score:) Put the play mats on the floor and plug this into your DVD player and kids are ready for an active but not too fast moving game that gets them up off the couch. Players move from one of 24 color play mats to another collecting tokens. This type of game is ideal for developing listening skills and color concepts in a playful manner. A grown up will need to supervise. 2-4 players.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2006.

2006 Award
Egg and Spoon Race
(International Playthings $14.99 Score:)

Four big plastic spoons are loaded with bright eggs to balance as kids race for the finish line. But watch out - if you drop the egg, it cracks and a yoke falls out! A classic game with fabric yokes that are less messy, and no risk of salmonella! They say 3 & up, we'd say more like old 4s and 5-6s. Great for a party!

Caterpillar Race
(Edushape $12.95 Score:) Two caterpillars are racing to the finish line. The way they get there is with a roll of the dice, players move the matching piece of the caterpillarís body forward. Okay, so there are some body integrity issues here, but itís really fun to play and a fresh new twist on color concepts! (800) 404-4744.

CooCoo the Rocking Clown
(Blue Orange Games $19.95 Score:)

CooCoo the Clown rocks on big green shoes as players take turns putting the “balls” on his arms and head. Watch out! Do not let them fall! There are lots of opportunities to win and lose this classic balancing game. 3 & up. Still top rated for kids working on counting skills, Zimbbos! ($19.95 41⁄2). Roll the die and stack the number of elephants shown. Can you do it without having the pyramid fall? Not exactly easy, but fun. 3–6.

2007 Award
Animal Bingo
(eeBoo $12.95 Score:)

Award-winning illustrator Kevin Hawkes designed the graphics on this simple matching game. It is more like a lotto game than bingo, with six animals on each playing board and matching animal chips that players pull from a cloth bag. A game of chance that is good for language development. Still top rated, I Never Forget A Face Memory Game ($12.95). Our almost-five-year-old tester proclaimed this the best memory and matching game ever. 3 & up.

2007 Award
Feed the Kitty
(Gamewright $11.99 Score:)

Roll the dice and try to keep your mice out of the “kitty” (a.k.a. a bowl). The arrow icon means pass one of your mice to the person on your left; roll the “bowl” icon and in goes one of your mice. Player holding the last mouse wins. Memory, visual discrimination, and turn taking make this a fast, easy game of chance. 4 & up. Still fun, Hisss, with snake parts—head, body, and tail that players “build” to collect the most snakes. 4 & up.

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. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

eeBoo Classic Bingo
(eeBoo $14.95 Score:)

Each player collects matching transportation, animals, clothing, colors, or nature cards as they are drawn from the bag. Winner is first to cover all eight pictures on his playing board. Cards are printed with words, so sight vocabulary is being built for beginning readers, although no reading is needed. A good game for building vocabulary and turn taking. Also, of interest for those learning Spanish or French($14.95 each) the same game with vocabulary in those languages.
