2014 Award
Neat Oh Hot Wheels Racing Battle Case
(Neat-Oh $24.99 Score:)

We love the design of this all plastic hard case that can hold up to twenty Hot Wheels cars. It comes with an ramp that extends so that you can send four cars at a time racing down from the top of the case. It does not come with any cars.

Neat Oh  makes a wide variety of soft cases/bins for Hot Wheels. In the soft cases, our testers loved the Hot Wheels Zip Bin with enough storage for one hundred cars. This one comes with one car. If you're looking for something more on the go, take a look at their new 45 Car Crash Racer Backpack ($19.99). It opens up with a race track design inside. Comes with one car.

2014 Award
Neat Oh Hot Wheels Wheelie 100 Car Case
(Neat-Oh $22.99 Score:)

If you have a Hot Wheels fan in your house, this will be a sure-fire hit. The case in the shape of a wheel comes with one car and room for 99 others. What makes it even better when you completely unzip the container you can create a race track for two cars in between the larger "wheel" sections. Fun! If you're looking for an even bigger storage/play solution, look at their 300 Car Storage Cube ($24.99). We like that you keep up two of the walls to give you a play setting or unzip the case entirely for a larger flat surface.  The inside is printed with roadways and a place to gas up. The soft cube comes with a lid and two soft handles for easy moving about.

2013 Award
My Girl's Dollhouse
(Good Toy $399 Score:)

A wow-wee (pricey) over-the-top 6 feet tall and 5 feet wide dollhouse that's big enough to use with American Girl and other 18" dolls. Our testers couldn't get over how enormous this pretend setting is when fully constructed.  Our parent testers thought this 100% pine wood frame went together well. The front of the house has a design --but here's the deal.  SAFETY NOTE: You have to use the SAFETY STRAP included to prevent this oversized structure from tipping over. So the design on the front isn't something you're going to see once you've put it together and secured to the wall. Of course this means that this is also a dollhouse for playrooms with lots of space. The product is marked for kids 8 & up, but we know it will be purchased for kids much younger - and even tall 8 year olds will need a stool to reach the top. So the safety strap is essential.

2013 Award
Prettie Girls Lena
(One World Doll Project $22 Score:)

A new collection of fashion dolls has just stepped onto the runway. Inspired by her childhood love of Barbie and a career that started with designing dolls of color for Mattel, Stacey McBride-Irby has just introduced Valencia, a Latina from Mexico City and Lena, a Business Girl from North Carolina. Like women of color, the Prettie Girls dolls come in varying skin tones and hair. Lena, the Business Girl is 11.5 inches tall and big on working out and other sports. She comes dressed for an active life style. They say 3 & up, we'd say this is going to be better for 5's and up who have the dexterity to deal with the fine details.
