2007 Award
Pirate Treasure
(Creativity for Kids $17.99 Score:) With pirates all the rage, this will be a good choice for a party. It will take some planning ahead, a project to do before the big day. There's a small cardboard treasure chest that needs painting and decorating (supplies are included) along with gems, golden coins, and two sturdy map-making papers. For dramatic play there's an eye patch and head scarf. But this is where the planning comes in- you use the art materials to create a map or puzzle that the players then use in a treasure hunt.

Age: Early School Years. Award Year: 2007.

Fashion Angels New World Necklace Kit
(Fashion Angels Enterprises $16 Score:) Hands down, the favorite of testers this year in the necklace/bracelet category. Comes with six colorful pendants- "all of them are pretty, so we won't fight," wrote one of our 10 year old testers. Each of the six pendants comes in its own plastic zip bag with beads, making this a great choice for a party activity.

2007 Award
Wobble Deck
(Diggin $39.95 Score:) Great fun for active play with some mental calisthenics built in. This electronic balance board can be played at varying levels of difficulty. It calls out colors or numbers that are marked on the board. Players need to follow the commands that get more complex and faster as the level of play is increased.

Age: Early School Years. Award Year: 2007.

2007 Award
Monster Clompers
(Alex $14.99 Score:) Perfect for foot races! Kids hold on to the ropes that hold the giant foam monster feet under their own feet. Pull on the sturdy rope handles and see who clomps the fastest! They say 3, we'd say more like 4 & up.

Age: . Award Year: 2007.

2007 Award
Pirate Dig Kit
(GeoCentral $10.99 Score:) One you unearth the skeleton of your pirate from the 7" gypsum block, you can string the pieces together to assembly an 11" pirate. Our testers needed help with the stringing stage. While some may find it kind of creepy, our testers loved that it combined both their love of dig toys and pirates! (We'd suggest adding safety glasses, they are not included in the kit.)

2008 Award
Musical Babipouce
(Corolle $30 Score:) Babies are often fascinated by dolls that look like real babies. This year's Babipouce goes one step furtherópull the top of this doll's hat and it plays "Beautiful Dreamer." Like earlier versions of Babipouce, this one is soft and safe enough for baby to handle with sewn-on velour romper and painted face. No moving eyes or doo-dads. You will need to remove ribbon on the doll's hand.

Age: Infants,Toddlers. Award Year: 2008.

2008 Award
Royal Jungle Puppets
(Manhattan Toy $12 Score:) These brightly colored 9" animal hand puppets (lion, monkey, and elephant) are just right for tracking games or just hamming it up for your baby. Our favorite is the lion with the brightly colored mane. This lion is also available as a music box, but it has a metal key- which is unfortunate.

Age: Infants,Toddlers. Award Year: 2008.

2008 Award
Inchworm
(Radio Flyer $39.99 Score:) He's back! Two versions of the classic toy are vying for your inchworm dollars. Playskool had the original green and yellow Inchworm in the '70s but have modified the design a lot with their new Bounce'n'Go Inch-Along. Radio Flyer's Inchworm is truer to the original design but done now in green and red. It is larger than Playskool's and more aesthetically pleasing. In our head to head competition, testers preferred the jaunty, springing action of the Radio Flyer. Both are novelty ride-ons and will not replace a basic ride-on.

Age: Toddlers. Award Year: 2008.

2008 Award
Sorbet Melodie Doll
(Corolle $29.99 Score:) A charming all-fabric doll with velour hair (really!), stitched features and a pretty floral print dress. A perfect first big doll that comes in a very special gift box. Just screams second birthday present!

Age: Toddlers. Award Year: 2008.

2008 Award
Little Petals Daisy Collection
(Mary Meyer $13 Score:) A new funky collection of four 10" all-fabric velour dolls with yarn hair and fun clothing (which does not come off). They look like cousins of the Groovy girls (from Manhattan Toy) ówe love that all four dolls are smiling. Come in two skin tones.

Age: Toddlers. Award Year: 2008.
