2008 Award
Bendomino
(Blue Orange Games $15.95 Score:) Truly a classic with a new twist. These curved dominoes are played as a traditional matching game, but the curves make it just a little trickier. Our kid testers thought the play pieces were fun to play with! We discovered that some adults use the "blank" tile as a wild card, while others require the blank to be placed against another blank. Who knew there could be such controversy in domino land? 5 & up.

2008 Award
I Spy 3D
(Briarpatch $24.95 Score:) Put the playing cards out, put on the 3-D glasses, and you are ready to play I Spy. A reader reads one of the riddle cards and players search for the objects in the riddles. The images are really small (you kids won’t have a problem, but you might!) They say 3 & up. We think given the size and number of the objects, this will be a better choice for 5s & up. Of course we really recommend bringing home Jean Marzollo's wonderful I Spy books!

2009 Award
I Spy Ready, Set, Silhouette!
(Briarpatch $16.95 Score:) Good fun! A new matching game that uses approx. 3” square color playing cards with multiple images and see through silhouette cards that players must match to the colored cards. Winner is the one who has the most pairs. This challenges looking at details, but also turning the cards to find the matches. Many have similar images but in varying arrangements, so this is harder than it appears at first glance. Also a good game for knowing and naming the items pictured to develop vocabulary. A great game for 2-4 players or even fun for solo matching. 5 & up. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.
