2014 Award
Eric Carle Recorder
(Kids Preferred $10 Score:)

A gaily painted wooden recorder that can be used to play real music, though most preschoolers will simply use it to explore the highs and lows they can play and perhaps pick out a simple tune. This is probably a better choice for slightly older kids, though it is marked like all the instruments in the collection for 3 & up.

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

2014 Award
Lincoln Logs Redfield Ranch
(KNEX $50 Score:)

A barrel of building fun comes in this giant size container with 109 wooden logs, plastic door, windows, roof plus a cowboy, horse, corral gates and corral, flag, feeding trough, hay and other small accessories. An instruction booklet will help beginners, but once they get the feel for this classic building set, kids come up with their own structures. Fun to use for dramatic play once the buildings are made.They are marked 3 & up. No doubt preschoolers will play with the forts and log cabins after an adult builds them, but as a construction toy, this is a much better choice for early school years from 5-8.

2014 Award
LEGO City Camper Van
(LEGO Systems, Inc. $19.99 Score:)

It's time to go camping! Why not with this big white camper van.. This is another of Lego's clever modular builds that is divided into sub-models to give builders an easier start. This 195-piece set is loaded with fine details that add to the builder’s delighted and plans that guide each step in the process. Kids will love the red canoe and two play figures, as well as the van with all of its accessories and working door. A relatively small set that helps develop fine motor and spatial skills along with their ability to stay with a task and deal with some problem solving--all important kinds of learning. Marked for 5-12, we think many 5-7's will need help getting started. Doing this gives them a roadmap for how to approach complex tasks.
