Award
Floor Standing Puppet Theater
(Alex $59.99 Score:) Puppet stages are great fun for the whole family. At first you may be the main performer but soon enough your child will want you to be the audience. Try out familiar stories and then make up your own. Kids often express themselves more openly when they use puppets-- so be a careful listener. You may be surprised by what you hear. This stage from Alex is smaller than their larger playhouses that also have puppet stages. Comes with a clock (for show time) and a chalk board for adding important info about the show.

2007 Award
Leg Warminators
(Fashion Angels Enterprises $17.99 Score:) Feel like having a "Flashdance" flashback? Try this fun kit that uses a really oversized plastic spool knitter to make retro leg warmers. New for a whole new generation of tweens, this is a good project to try together. One tester made this her "gift" to make and give to her friends. Younger crafters will need help getting started.

Age: Later School Years. Award Year: 2007.

Award
Speed Stacks
(Play Along $39.99 Score:) This is a game that has caught on in gym classes in middle schools and high schools across the country. It's a great way to build eye-hand coordination as well as concentration. The idea is to stack and unstack the cups in the shortest amount of time. Fun and active - and great for the age that usually just wants to plug into their video games.

2007 Award
LeapFrog Fridge Words Magnetic Word Builder
(LeapFrog $27.99 Score:)

Kids can create more than 325 three-letter words with magnetic letters that speak and sing. This is a step beyond the original Fridge Phonics Letters Set, which plays one letter at a time. World Whammer is played with three letters to help kids learn to blend sounds and make words. It includes single letter names and sounds, plus word hunt games with rhyming words. Some 4s may be ready, but this is really a better game for 5-7.

2007 Award
Furreal Friends Butterscotch Pony
(Hasbro $299.99 Score:) Your child is either going to love Butterscotch or want to run in the opposite direction. Butterscotch is voice activated and will move her head in your direction when you speak to her. She whinnes and snorts and while she doesn't actually move forward, she does make walking sounds when you sit on her (there is an 80 lb. limit). Comes with a carrot and brush. It's fun to feed her as she makes chomping sounds and moves her mouth. She has almost too much hair on her mane but certainly does fill the bill on "hairplay". We usually don't love dolls that do a lot of things--but for kids that love horses, Butterscotch is truly magical.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2007.

2007 Award
Super Story Recorder
(Cranium $19.99 Score:) ) Much like a Mad Lib, Super Story Recorder prompts players to answer certain questions that are then incorporated into a themed story (which you pick with a spin of the dial). Once we got the hang of waiting for beeps to record our answers, it was fun to play. 6 & up. (877) 272-6486.

2007 Award
Play Scenes
(Mudpuppy Press $11 Score:) These are sturdy play boards that open up like a portfolio and come with cling play pieces. We highly recommend the charming Fairytale Theater, which has lots of storytelling play power with characters, props, and a wonderful stage for acting out original stories! There is also an attractive Map of the U.S.A. (3), with all the states noted (except poor New England, where the states are delineated on the map but collectively labeled “New England”). 5 & up. (800) 670-7441.

Age: Early School Years. Award Year: 2007.

2007 Award
Lonpos
(Mic O Mic Americas, Inc. $16.99 Score:) Imagine a puzzle with 566 combinations that fits in a box that is only 3" x 5.5"! A brain teaser game with multicolored balls, connected in various forms, that are a challenge to connect into many patterns. 10 & up. (877) 642-6642.

It's All About Me
(Klutz $14.95 Score:) Our testers loved filling in the answers to this personality quiz. This book allows kids to share their thoughts and write down feelings about themselves, their parents and friends. 8 & up. If you have a detail-oriented child, Paper Stained Glass ($19.95 4) will make the time fly. It is really an advanced form of color-by-number. Working on sheer vellum with felt markers, this craft takes up a lot of “are we there yet?” restlessness. For fun once you arrive, bring along The Foam Airplane Book ($14.95 4). 8 & up. (800) 737-4123.

Age: Later School Years. Award Year: 2007.
