Playskool Busy Balls Popper
(Hasbro $19.99 Score:)

We got mixed reports on this ball popper that didn’t always work. The balls drop in and then “pop” back up (most of the time). Some parents and tots didn’t like having to chase after the balls that go flying! Others were concerned that their kids tried putting other things down the chute.

2004 Award
Radio Flyer Classic Walker Wagon
(Radio Flyer $70 Score:) This updated version is heavier and slower moving than the original, better suited for new walkers to hold on to. Makes a quiet clicking sound as it moves about. At Press time, July 2005, the clickers on models sold from 8/03 to 5/05 were RECALLED. Replacement clickers are available from the company.

2004 Award
Wide Tracker Activity Walker
(Little Tikes $19.99 Score:) Testers gave high marks to Little Tikes’ Wide Tracker Activity Walker has a wider opening in the back so kids are less likely to trip themselves on the wheels! This isn't weighted, the way walkers used to be made, so it's not for tots to pull up on.

Age: Toddlers. Award Year: 2004.

Discovery Ball
(LeapFrog $19.99 Score:) Our testers did love spinning the ball and hearing the music while the ball was in its cradle. It is really a cause-and-effect toy. However, this heavy plastic ball should not replace having a soft fabric ball for games of roly poly. While the music is pleasant, we take issue with the focus on teaching babies the ABCs.

2004 Awards
Melody & Motion Activity Toy
(Baby Einstein $9.99 Score:) Our tester loved batting at this rolling musical toy and making the paddle wheel spin, or crawling after it as it rolled and played “Für Elise.” Unlike some of the other musicals in this line, the music is slow and calming—not frenetic. Winding it up calls for adult help, but this is a good choice to motivate baby to get moving. 6 mos. & up. SNAP: Winding it up calls for adult help, but this is a good choice to motivate baby’s to get moving. Play a simple I'll roll it to you -you roll it to me game with this toy. (800) 793-1454.

Age: Infants. Award Year: 2004.
