Little Doctor Kit
(International Playthings $18.99 Score:) A new kit with some high-tech sizzle: a stethoscope with heartbeat and coughing sounds, a squeaking syringe, a blood pressure gauge with moving dial, and other chunky tools in a small case. Like other kits we tested this is also hard for kids to reload once they take the pieces out. 2 and up.

Funnel Tunnel
(Playhut $25 Score:) Testers giggled their way through this 9 foot long tunnel with articulated narrow and widening parts that change the experience s they crawl along! Also top-rated: longer and more spacious Yellow School Bus and Red Fire Engine and a blue Express Train engine. These each easily accommodate two kids for pretend fun. Still top-rated: 5 foot long Wiggly Worm tunnel, Platinum Award 2001.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: .

Talkin Fashion Vanity
(Little Tikes $50 Score:) Almost surreal, this vanity not only has a talking mirror that gives compliments, it nags kids to return the hairbrush or lipstick to the right slot after the sensors feel the object has been used long enough. We think kids do not need toys that nag-that is what parents are for, right? We know girls of a certain age enjoy a scaled down dressing table, but this is an example of a bossy, intrusive toy where less would have been more.

2002 Award
Dino Dodg'em
(Binary Arts $9.99 Score:) Two teams of dinos are racing to get off the playing board first, but watch out for blocking dino moves. The firs team to get all dinos off the board wins. A relatively easy brainteaser game that comes in a compact carrying case. 8 and up. Much more challenging for 10s and up, Elephant Spin Out ($8.99) where the object is to line up elephant pieces and move them off the board.

Age: Later School Years. Award Year: 2002.

2002 Award
Pretty Dresser
(Balitono $16 Score:) Once it's painted, this small wooden mirror with three drawers will hold jewelry and other small treasures. For the cat lover we recommend the cat-shaped My Purrfect box ($16) or make your own wooden Nature Tic Tac Toe game ($16) with a wooden butterfly board and four flower and bugs playing pieces. Testers absolutely recommended this kit. 6 and up.

2002 Award
Musical Tea Set
(Fisher-Price $12.99 Score:) Our testers enjoyed the novelty of this play set. When you pour, you hear different electronic sounds. While parents noted, the "electronic" quality of the sounds, the kids really enjoyed making it happen. We'd still recommend a basic set where kids make their own sound effects.

Age: Toddlers,Preschool. Award Year: 2002.
