A delicious armful, Duffy Dog is a taffy colored pooch with dark brown floppy ears, velvety nose and tail. His furry coat is shaggy and his body has pellets to weigh down the bottom for sitting. He's huggable as a pooch can be and comes in two sizes, large 15" and medium 12".

2014 Awards
Magformers 55 piece Dinosaur Set
(Magformers $99 Score:)

There are step-by-step instructions for creating a brontosaurus, velociraptor, stegoaurus, tyrannosaurus Rex and Triceratops with the colorful magnetic pieces. Of course, the finished pieces are rather abstract representations, but, satisfying for kids who are heavily into dinosaurs. Of course, kids can make their own creations, as well. Like so many of the Magformer sets, this involves, problem solving, fine motor skills, patience and imagination. Also fun, for Deep Sea ($89) enthusiasts, a 46 piece set with instructions for making 10 nautical builds or the Forest Friends ($89) 47 piece set for making bats, butterflies, bunnies and other creatures of the forest. They say 3 & up, we think 3's will like playing with the pieces that are safe since the magnets are embedded in large plastic pieces. But making these complex builds is more like a task for 5's and up.

Blabla Mirabelle
(blabla kids $56 Score:)

Who can resist the delectable bunny Mirabelle with her floppy pink ears with small pom-poms, her blue ballet leotard and her lace up slippers? Happily, all her clothes are knitted on and not removable. She's 18 inches tall with long legs and arms for easy grabbing. Shes big enough to satisfy toddlers love of big huggables, but light enough to be handled with ease. Her adorable stitched features will bring a smile from tots and adults alike.

2014 Award
Blabla Giant Hercule
(blabla kids $198 Score:)

Looking for a wow-ee gift that will serve as a huggable, over-the-top companion, and room decoration? Find a seat for dear lovable Hercule, an elephant who is soft and cuddly and 36 inches tall. He's dressed up in non-removable clothes that are gender neutral enough for any boy or girl, without the usual black super-hero stuff or girlie pink. Babies will loke gazing at him, toddlers will want to sit with him ( or on him), preschoolers will turn him into a playmate who listens to their stories as well as being a huggable pal. Hercule is elegant and hand knitted of 100% cotton in Peru. He's really like a piece of folk art, a memorable doll that will be enjoyed for years.
Pricey? Yes. Deliciously special? Indeed! All ages.

(Manhattan Toy $25 Score:)

From the Lovelies line-up, Lindy Lamb is totally loveable and huggable. All white, Lindy Lamb is 15-inches big with silky plush body and sweet face set off with tiny brown eyes. Lindy's bottom is weighted with pellets inside so it sits with ease. A good size, but light armful that will listen and has premade storyline. Its all in the imagination of the child. IT's a pretty one for the nursery but even better for toddlers and preschoolers for snuggling.

2014 Award
Manhattan Toy Folksy Foresters
(Manhattan Toy $19.99 Score:)

Instead of the usual plush huggables, these adorable forest critters are very friendly looking crew. Bennett Bear, Finley Fox, Ray Raccoon, and Rabbit are done up in corduroy with its interesting texture, detailed snouts and two tone bodies. We especially like Raccoon's black and white tail and Fox's pointy snout and two toned tail. These charming critters come in two sizes:13" and 8". All have easy to grasp under-stuffed arms and legs and bodies filled with polyester pellets that make them easy to sit up. The smaller sized ones make a nice fistful for toddlers and preschoolers to take along; while the 13" ones are more like an armful. You wont go wrong with either.

2014 Award
Quercetti Tubation Transparent
(International Playthings $49.99 Score:)

A 70 piece set of transparent tubes that connect like pipes. What we love about this kind of building set is that it is completely open-ended. Putting the pieces together is not only fun, but it helps build hand-eye coordination, problem solving skills and creativity. Comes with 28 straight pieces, 7 t-shaped pieces, 7 crosses and 28 curved pieces. A nice set to explore together.
