2012 Award
eeBoo Holiday Chain Set
(eeBoo $10.00 Score:)

We have mixed emotions over this set of 24 foot long pieces of two sided print paper. The pieces had links at the end so no glue is needed, though we think it takes more dexterity to fasten them than most young kids will have. We suspect you will end up giving them glue to make them stick. That said, they are highly decorative and thicker than most chains we made as kids.

Age: Early School Years. Award Year: 2012.

2012 Award
eeBoo Sketchbook with Glow in the Dark Covers
(eeBoo $6.00 Score:)

60 pages in these handsome spiral sketchpads 8.5 x 11.5. Choose from the many covers to appeal to the child you are shopping for this season. We like the fact that there are covers to appeal to boys as well as girls and pencil kits that match. This gives a real gifty look to what we consider basic gear for school-aged kids who will use these kinds of supplies well past the holiday season.

2012 Awards
Sassy My Own Monster
(Sassy $7.99 Score:)

We don't usually suggest monsters for babies, but this is one sweet square-ish blue plush toy that is silky to the touch and not in the least monster-ish. He sports a mirror on his belly, stitched features, a striped tail and some very small discreet horns. The dangly striped arms have chewy textured hands and the hot pink. The body has a crisp crinkle sound to attract baby's attention. There is nothing scary about this very friendly so-called monster. It resembles some of the Ugly dolls more than any monster we have seen. Newborn & up.

Age: Infants. Award Year: 2012.

2012 Award
Infantino Pop & Play Rattle Pod
(Infantino $6.99 Score:)

We like the visual playfulness of this rollerball rattle. Just a swipe of the hand sets the patterned ball twirling and changing its look. There are tiny beads in a see through ring that add a quiet sound. Attach to car seat or stroller or haul one out for play time interactions. These were designed forInfantino's Pop & Swap Gym that we passed on, but this and the Chime Pod are fun stand-alones. Newborn & up

2012 Award
Sassy Light-up Caterpillar
(Sassy $8.99 Score:)

Attach this big eyed fabric caterpillar to the stroller or use it for lap games. There are four segments, black on white polka-dots and white on black dots, a green velour like head and a bright yellow corduroy segment, as well. You can hang them all on the yellow ring or interest baby in grabbing the textured purple ring. Push the segment that says press and it has small lights that blink and electronic music. We are not thrilled with high pitched electronic music, but this is something only an adult will be able to activate. You can use it for auditory tracking by moving it from the left or right side of baby's head. Newborn & up.

2012 Award
Camping: A Mr. and Mrs. Green Adventure
(by Keith Baker, Houghton Mifflin $12.95/4.99 Score:)

Beginning readers will giggle as they read about the Mr. Green's ridiculous ideas of what to take on a camping trip and his fears of going too far from home. One of a new series about a droll couple who just happen to be alligators. Also good fun, Fishing, another amusing adventure in which Mrs. Green seems to think that Mr. Green has the better side of the boat and the better fishing pole, since he keeps catching fish and she does not. A light breezy new series for beginners. Level 2.
