2009 Award
Polar Bear A B C
(Hasbro $9.99 Score:) If you're working on letter recognition, this is a fun game to play at home. There is a fishing pole and letters to go fishing will learn how to spell 15 different words that they are asked to go find the letters for. What's really nice about this game is that it isn't overwhelming--there are only 13 letters. Very straight forward with the added bonus of getting to put the polar bear figure in the water if you finish spelling your word. Marked for preschoolers, but will be a good game for 5s and 6s working on their letters. Safety note: the letters are backed with a magnetic sheet--so if there are kids in your house that still mouth their toys be sure to keep this one out of range. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2009.

2009 Award
Scrabble Slam Card Game
(Parker Brothers $6.99 Score:) This is a slam dunk winner with testers of mixed ages. Faster than Scrabble and paced for fun, this is a four letter game where players race to change the word by slamming a letter card on the current word to make a new word. The object is to be first to use all your cards. 2-4 players, 15 minutes a round(maybe) and fun for 8 & up.
