Manhattan Toy Peek-Squeak Monkey
(Manhattan Toy $18 Score:)

A first doll that doubles as an activity toy with many interesting items for baby to explore. Both of Monkey's feet have textured teethers and one leg has rings that will not come off. In one hand Monkey has a ring with beads encased in a see-through ring and the other hand hold a banana on a short string that you can pull away and it reattaches thanks to magnets sewn inside. On Monkey's tummy there is a crinkle flap that lifts to reveal a small mirror and don't forget Monkey’s ears with squeaker in one and crinkle in the other. All done up in peach, pink and yellow, Monkey comes with a loop so it can hang in the stroller ready for action when you sit together. A nice gift for baby shower or going to visit. Newborn & up

Few toys are more basic than a light weight fabric ball for sitting up and crawling babies. Early social games are easy to play with a ball that can be rolled back and forth. Designed for easy grasping, this new Peek Squeak ball has lots of textures for small hands to explore. It has visual interests with color variety of patterns and fabrics and a chime inside along with crinkle leaves that add to the sensory pleasures of this basic gear toy.

2014 Award
Manhattan Toy Peek Squeak Monkey
(Manhattan Toy $18 Score:)

Hang this on the stroller and take it down for laptime looking. 

The purple satin backed square "blankie" is loaded with activities and textures for you to talk about while little hands explore the crinkle peek flap that reveals a monkey face, the corduroy patch, a banana appliqué with squeaker inside and a teether that hides away in a small pocket. One edge of the blankie has silky fringe and another corner has two felt hearts. Topping it all is a monkey head with stitched features and bright colored ears.

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.

2014 Award
Manhattan Toy Lovelies Lindy Lamb
(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. It’s 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 won’t go wrong with either.

2014 Award
American Girl Beforever Samantha & Book
(American Girl $115 Score:)

Samantha, an American girl at the dawn of the 20th Century, is being brought up by her grandparents to be a proper young lady of her day. But her privileged life does not prevent her from befriending a servant girl and understanding her very different circumstances. American Girl introduced Samantha in 1986 and she is reintroduced this season in a new line of historical dolls with a refreshed look. Her original look had more of a historic period piece costume; while the update has a far more modern look. That said, we expect that many of the original Samantha doll owners will be eager to bring their daughters an update of their memorable doll. Samantha is the first, but not the last of the well-loved collection to be updated. There are new books and accessories, as well. Dressed in a charming pink dress with ruffled collar and velvet sash, she is a beauty. 6 & up.

2014 Award
Krazy Kars Max Traxxx Tracer Racers Truck Set
(Skullduggery $29.99 Score:)

Awesome described last year's Max Traxxx Racing cars and the awesome-ness continues with the new Tracer Racer Truck set. With 16 feet of glow-in-the-dark track and two LED light-up trucks with lights on the bottom, kids can change the setting to adjust the type of pattern the trucks will leave on the track. Yes, like the cars the trucks leave a trace of LIGHT. Did we mention that the tracks will light up in the dark from the LED lights? Our testers loved both leaving LED on all the way--this lit up the entire inside of the track or putting the LED lights on pulse...which left a broken pattern on the track. Either way - this is another big hit. The tracks go together well and come with suction cups so that you can make two ramps and race the cars. Use this dual track set alone or combine it with last years car set and they are ready for amazing tract time. The company tells us that there is a patent pending, we just know this is sooo much fun. 6 & up

2014 Award
Global Girl Doll Collection
(Global Girl Dolls $89.99 Score:)

Older girls may have put away their baby dolls, but they often still long for one last doll to treasure and this collection certainly fits the bill. These are 21" dolls each dressed and styled for a specific country. These are nothing like your mother's or grandmother's foreign doll collection with traditional costumes. Tatiana from Russia, Vivienne from France, Mei Ling from China, Marcela from Argentina, Amahle from South Africa, and Tiffany from New York wear stylish and current sophisticated outfits. Each doll was made with a unique face mold and coloring that reflects the world of today's girls. The soft-bodied dolls are poseable and can sit as well as stand. They come dressed with underwear, pierced earrings, coats and hats or lighter outer wear, and casual sports outfits. Each has shoes, handbags, and a beautiful head of hair to style and re-style. A book ($9.99) is sold separately for each doll and features both fiction and non-fiction to acquaint the reader with life styles for differing cultures. They are so new, they are only sold on line through globalgirl.com.

Age: Early School Years, Later School Years. Award Year: 2014.
