Ragtales Primrose Pig
(Ragtails $19.95 Score:)

Primrose Pig is just the right size to fit in the hand of toddlers and your preschoolers, who like their huggables either oversized or small enough to carry in one hand. Primrose Pig is the latter. She is a charmer with a knitted shawl and gentle look who will no doubt listen well and play whatever games your tot has in mind. Easy to take along as a comfort toy wherever.

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

Shake n Beats Tambourine
(Fisher-Price $8 Score:)

A fun combo rattle and mirror that involves all the senses. Marked for 3 months and up, this will be all right for early lap games or for gazing during tummy time. We think it will be even more fun for sitting up babies who can shake the rattle and discover their faces in the baby-proof mirror. Sitting up babies will be interested in turning the color rings and tapping the tambourine to make sounds. Look for the newest version of this toy. It was recently updated from an earlier version that did not have a mirror; this is a real improvement.  A sturdy toy, but on the heavy side, especially for young babies.

Age: Infants. Award Year: 2014.

Shake n Go Dune Racer
(Fisher-Price $14 Score:)

Shake the four-wheel drive vehicle to make the engine roar and let it go! It not only rolls, it climbs over obstacles and up small hills. There is a yellow mudder truck, and a red hot rod racer truck. They all take two AA batteries. For the money, this is a showy little vehicle that could also knock down some blocks as it runs obstacle courses that kids love to create. Bring home two and they can have a race. These come with a warning to keep the spinning wheels away from hair. 3-7

Pattern Play
(MindWare $34.99 Score:)

Like a set of parquetry blocks, these geometric wooden blocks fit into a wooden frame in various patterns. There are forty colorful blocks in the set and forty pattern cards that challenge kids' visual discrimination and matching skills. Children can make up their own patterns as well. Marked for 3 and up. We'd say the "and up" is more accurate. Three's are not ready for this kind of matching game, though they will like playing with the pieces. This kind of matching of patterns is more appropriate for fives and up. We suggest a basket for holding the pieces, so they don't go lost. Getting them all back in the frame and box is not going to happen every time they touch this toy. A large basket or bigger box will save the pieces!

Shaky Tadbit
(Bunnies By the Bay $17 Score:)

Pull the bunny's feet and it shakes and vibrates. Hang this on an infant seat or stroller for a quick diversion or use for lap games when baby can feel the tickle of Bud's vibrating body. Baby will not be able to activate this for some time without help. It's pale face and features may be hard for newborns to focus on; but will be interesting to a baby who is beginning to take hold of things.

Big Friend Hops
(Bunnies By the Bay $32 Score:)

A deliciously sweet white 16" bunny with floppy ears and pink nose and a blush of pink on the cheeks. So soft and huggable you will want to snuggle with it, too. This is light-weight but big enough to fill the arms of toddlers, who like their dolls really big or (at the other end of the spectrum) small enough to fit in a fist. Bunnies are usually seasonal toys, but this is one love of a bunny for the year round!
