2006 Award
Changing Table Flutter Bug Musical Mobile
(Infantino $23 Score:)

Cleverly designed, this "bug" has four patterned wings with colorful ribbons that flutter as they turn to the music. It's a windup music box with old-fashioned sound, rather than the usual electronic type. This attaches to the changing table for three minutes' worth of diversion. This toy has been discontinued.

Age: Infants. Award Year: 2006.

Candy Land DVD Game
(Milton Bradley $29.99 Score:) Put the play mats on the floor and plug this into your DVD player and kids are ready for an active but not too fast moving game that gets them up off the couch. Players move from one of 24 color play mats to another collecting tokens. This type of game is ideal for developing listening skills and color concepts in a playful manner. A grown up will need to supervise. 2-4 players.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2006.

2005 Award
9 x 12 Jump n Slide
(Little Tikes $200 Score:) The neighborhood of kids that tested this for us gave this jumping toy high marks. The 3-5 year old crowd found the toy sufficiently bouncy! Note: Our older testers (7 and up) felt the toy did not give them enough bounce. We liked the protective walls on the sides and the kids loved the wide slide. Great fun for a birthday party and everyday play but does require parental supervision. We also recommend placing the toy a soft surface. Parents liked the fact that it inflated easily and quickly with the included pump. Grass stakes help keep the playset from moving around.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2005.

Long Distance Hand Powered Glider
(Discovery Kids $24.95 Score:) This has an impressive 50" wing span. Ideal to use on a field or at the beach where you have lots of room. It has a graphite frame and big rubber tip—which makes it less likely to fall apart when it crashes! With this non-motorized flying machine you don't need to worry about fingers getting caught on propellers! Kids just need some arm strength to send it flying...and then be prepared to go after it! 10 & up.

Endless Adventures Tikes Town Playhouse
(Little Tikes $280 Score:) Toddlers and preschoolers love having special spaces that are designed just for them. For older toddlers going in and out of the space, playing peek a boo will be the name of the game. As they grow older the pretend play will become more elaborate and detailed. This 58” high playhouse has an innovative design that invites lots of pretend possibilities with four different themed sides to the structure (firehouse/schoolhouse, gas station with pump, grocer store/bank with ATM machine (of course) and a sports wall complete with hoop.

Age: Toddlers,Preschool. Award Year: 2006.

2005 Awards
Peg-gy Back Game
(Lauri $14.99 Score:) It’s often hard to find a true beginners game that is not too complex for preschoolers. This simple color cube game involves moving pegs on the pegboard forward to the color thrown. If you land on the same space as your opponent, you get a Peggy back ride! Nothing hard here. The graphics are not great, but the game is a good place to start with one concept instead of three. 3 & up. (800) 451-0520.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2005.
