2004 Award
Pretend & Play Doctor Set
(Learning Resources $24.95 Score:) Doctors no longer make house calls, and even the traditional black bag from Fisher-Price is gone. Most of the medical kits do not come with cases large enough for easy re-packing. The roomiest is the Pretend & Play Doctor Set. Comes in a large plastic case with 19 pieces including a stethoscope with heartbeat and cough, a beeper, a cellphone, a blood pressure cuff, and other chunky tools.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2004.

Super Art Table
(Alex $159.99 Score:) These convenient pieces of basic gear will be used for artwork, puzzles, tea parties, and even lunch. You’ll find many choices in both plastic and wood. This is a decorating choice as well as a functional one. The Super Art Table from Alex is an oval table outfitted with a roll of paper for painting, a chalkboard center, and wells for supplies, and comes with two long stools. For a smaller round table with the same style, consider My First Table (Alex $100). 3 & up.

2004 Award
Scream Machine Jr.
(Razor $99 Score:) Remember your classic Big Wheels? Here’s the updated version of that low-to-the-ground pedal toy. This year’s new junior model is smaller, but just as much fun as last year’s gleaming chrome version. We’d add a flag so vehicles can see riders low to the ground! 4–8.

2004 Award
Sky Train Set
(Brio $50 Score:) 24- piece set comes with two trains that run on elevated track with gondola-like wagons suspended beneath. Shouldn’t replace a basic set, but the movement and height will impress train aficionados big time. 3 & up.

2004 Award
Let's Pretend Careers
(Small Miracles $29.99 Score:) Handsome enough to wear as real clothes, the newest items in the career line are an Astronaut (4 1⁄2), and an ER Worker (4 1⁄2) with green scrubs, stethoscope, and other tools. Forget the stereotypical Teacher (2) costume with black glasses and old-fashioned red smock with white lace. Still top rated, Chef (with coat, hat, and tools); in the fantasy line, a Pirate (outfit comes with a felt hat). Past winners include: Doctor, Pilot, Equestrian, Firefighter, Construction Worker, and Police. PLATINUM AWARDS ’02 & ’04. 3–8. (888) 281-1798.

2004 Award
Hocus Focus
(Gamewright $9.99 Score:)

Put your visual discrimination skills to the test with this card game that features 48 images of the wizard. The object is to find the wizard that has nothing in common with the draw card. Sounds harder than it is to play. Also fun, Stampede, where player with the most complete hippos, rhinos, and elephants before the deck runs out wins. Seeing the differences between the hippos and rhinos takes some attention! 6 & up.
