2009 Award
Lamaze Busy Bug
(Learning Curve International $18 Score:)

Clap this suction cup toy on the feeding table and get ready for easy action. Baby can bat at the bug or pull it to make it shake. It has small rings and beads that rattle and move adding sound, color and items to manipulate. Since they are tethered down they are safe enough for baby’s little fingers to explore. The jolly green bug head with two yellow antennae wears a friendly big smile. We thought this might be top heavy and not stand up to typical play. But its base is broad without taking up tons of room on the feeding table. 6 months & up. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

2009 Award
Lamaze Stack, Roll and Crawl Ball
(Learning Curve International $20 Score:) A stack of rings fit onto a straight post, so there is no size order for fitting them on. However, to put the ball together, they will need to be in order. That said, this is a toy that can be enjoyed long before babies can put it together or take it apart. It’s a colorful ball with beads rolling around the top, that you can spin or roll back and forth with baby. Taking it apart will come before they can fit it back together…in order or otherwise. So, this is a versatile plaything that won’t roll too far away from beginning players, can encourage social behaviors, crawling and eventually eye hand coordination. 6 months & up. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

Age: Infants,Toddlers. Award Year: 2009.

2009 Award
Kid Galaxy Movin' Motors
(Kid Galaxy $35 Score:)

Our testers love the clever motorized “robot” that you plug into the body of these construction trucks to make them go forward. Turn the motor around and it powers the dump bed of the Dump ‘N’ Drive Dump Truck or the Pick ‘N’ Plow Backhoe with a digger and claw on the back. These two work better than the Lift ‘N’ Load Bulldozer. These have a whimsical look as the motors have see-through sides that allow you to see the working fans and pistons. Easy enough for pre-schoolers to operate. One tester needed some help learning to load the motor into the right slots. These take 4 AA batteries. 3 & up. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.
