2005 Award
Pop Art Painted Jewelry and Nail Polish Kit
(Fashion Angels Enterprises $16 Score:) Plastic jewelry from the 60s is making a come back. Kids can be right in the middle of this retro fashion trend with this set that comes with six rings, two pendants and four bracelets. You paint the underside of the plastic for a "pop art" effect. We agree with the directions that you really need to paint with toothpicks (not included) to get the right color saturation. If you just paint with the nail polish brushes included we found the color is too light.

Age: Later School Years. Award Year: 2005.

2005 Award
Friendship Wheel
(Alex $13.99 Score:) Remember braiding friendship bracelets in multicolored threads? Well they are back, only now there is a weaving wheel that guides the process and takes just a few minutes to master. Kit comes with two foam wheels and enough thread for 10 bracelets. Kids can pass the wheels around and help make all of them or bring home a wheel for each guest. Also a great choice for play dates or keeping hands busy on a trip. Our ten year old tester said it would be the "perfect travel toy."

2005 Award
Paint Ice Jewelry
(3M $13.99 Score:) Make a whole wardrobe of rings and bracelets with the five funky rings and four bracelets. Jewelry is made of clear plastic that you paint on the underside. Kids can use decals as well as paints to make stripes, spots and other designs. A fine brush and bright paint do the task with ease. But kids do need to wait between colors so the colors dry one at a time. Also a good choice for a play date with enough pieces to go around. 8 & up. (800) 666-2539.

2005 Award
Zolo Stacrobats
(Kushies $45 Score:) Five colorful fabric acrobats and three colorful balls can be balanced (sort of) and arranged in multiple ways on their colorful magnetic fabric balancing three-ring circus style pad. Magnets inside make for interesting experiments that will be going ka-boom on a regular basis. A fun toy for interacting with young toddlers. Play figures store in the magnetic base, so toss the plastic bag they come in. This is a pricey toy, but attractive. 1 & up. (800) 841 5330.

Age: Toddlers. Award Year: 2005.
