2005 Award
Little Mommy Potty Training Baby
(Fisher-Price $25 Score:) One of the most innovative dolls we’ve tested! She drinks but does not tinkle until she’s on her special potty seat. It’s magic (really creative use of magnets that releases the water)! Unfortunately, she is not tub-able! For an all-vinyl tub-able body, consider Corolle’s anatomically correct girl or boy 14" doll. They're pricier ($40) but very attractive. In the novelty doll category, Potty Elmo PLATINUM AWARD (Fisher-Price $19) is amazing. Give Elmo his sippy cup and you’ll hear him drink; if you don’t get him to the potty, he says, "Oops, Elmo didn’t get to the potty. Accidents happen," and if he makes it, "Elmo can do it and so can you!" One of the best and most polite interactive dolls we’ve ever tested. We pass on Zapf Creations’ Baby Born ($39.99 ) who got low marks from our testers because they had difficulty getting the pretend poop out (no joke).

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2005.

2005 Award
Timber
(Gund $20 Score:) With a full tummy and slightly sad expression, Timber looks like he needs a hug—which is easy to do because his shiny mocha fur is extremely soft.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2005.

2005 Award
E-L-M-O
(Fisher-Price $29.99 Score:) The latest of the interactive Elmo dolls. Here Elmo does a dance (with body movements) to the tune of "YMCA". Will appeal to parents of a certain generation as well as their kids. Also charming, Happy Ears Eeyore (Fisher-Price $19.99); Eeyore’s ears move as he speaks. (800) 432-5437.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2005.

2005 Award
Bendos Old Tyme R/C Bumper Cars
