2003 Awards
Audubon Birds
(Wild Republic $6.95 Score:) Young bird lovers and watchers may really enjoy collecting these plush birds, each has a sound chip with that particular species song. Newest in the line this year is the Sissor-tailed Flycatcher. As collectables go these have a touch of magic as well as science built into the novelty. Makes a good stocking stuffer-along with a bird book or how about a bird house that they can build.

Age: Preschool,Early School Years. Award Year: 2003.

2004 Award
Travel Lite-Brite
(Hasbro $7.99 Score:) We are not in agreement about this toy (probably because one of us wanted this toy for her 5th birthday and never got it!). That said, there is the potential that all the little pieces (all 160 of them) will fall on the floor of the train, plane, or automobile. But still, it's a lot of fun if you like Lite Brite!

Age: Early School Years. Award Year: 2004.
