2009 Award
Jungle Friends, First Puzzles
(Mudpuppy Press $10 Score:)

Newest of the First Puzzle sets with four little puzzles in one box. This is a little more challenging since the colors of the four puzzles have some overlap. Sorting the playing pieces by color may need adult assistance. That said the four animals pictured are playful images and go together with ease, once they are sorted. In fat the sorting is part of the fun. 3 & up. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

Plan Toys Push-Along Duck
(Plan Toys $35 Score:)

This all rubberwood push toy has a cute little duck that walks along with flip flop orange webbed feet. It makes an amusing quacking sound as it goes along. For a less noisy variation there’s a blue Push-Along Elephant ($35) that is slightly less noisy and a little harder to push. Though this is a pricey toy, it’s a classic toy that will appeal to toddlers. Once they are up on their feet and walking they enjoy anything that moves along with them and their active independent life style. 19 months & up.  The lower score reflects that there was some difficulty for many of testers to push these two with ease.  The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.
