(Kids Preferred $20 Score:)

Hang this silky soft bunny on the stroller for gazing and enjoy as a lap toy to explore with your baby. Also sweet, a Guess How Much I Love You Shape Book ($12) its a bunny with a small fabric book attached.

Kaloo Petite Rose Musical Doll
(Janod $35 Score:)

A huggable 10" musical bunny with pink body and dress and purple leggings. None of the clothes come off and the features are stitched. Best of all, with a pull of the tail the music box inside plays a Russian folk tune. With no hard key to wind this is a safe huggable for babies and toddlers.

Kaloo Petite Rose Small Zig Musical
(Janod $31 Score:)

A sweet pull-down musical bunny in velvety plush with an accordion pleated body that climbs up as it plays an old-fashions tune, “Beautiful Lady, How I Love You.” Tie this onto the carrier, crib or stroller. A soothing musical to take along for naps away from home.  We tested the pink one, but it also comes in blue. Infants.

Kids Preferred Carter's Activity Octopus
(Kids Preferred $22 Score:)

Hang this in the stroller for gazing at and then use it for an interesting lap toy that rattles and has big stitched features. Best of all it has eight crinkly-sounding arms. Each has a different color and texture for baby to explore. Some are cotton, some velour and others in cord. All have knotties that will be interesting for baby to touch and taste, for sure. There is a textured teether attached along with a small fish that rattles. Infants.

Playskool Stack 'n Stow Cups
(Hasbro $7.99 Score:)

These are not your typical stack and nesting cups. Instead there is a base and seven shallow rimmed discs shaped with easy to grab tabs. Each one has a cup-out shape in the center: a star, triangle, square, etc. The shapes can be stacked or nested in size order on the base or not. For stacking you will need to place the lion's face on the base. For nesting the pieces fit into each other and then can be capped with the lion's face and turned to hold it all together. Placing the lion's face in place for either operation will take adult hands. That said, this is a nice twist on an old toy concept that can be used to introduce and reinforce color names, shapes, size order and dexterity. Marked for over 9 months, be forewarned, chances are some of the pieces will be missing before your child is a toddler and able to do the size order part. That said, babies will like the multiple pieces to take apart, toss, teethe on and bang together. It's one of those toys kids return to and it can help develop eye hand skills and visual perception. A new twist on stacking and nesting.

Fisher-Price Roller Blocks Play Wall
(Fisher-Price $34.99 Score:)

A play wall intended for the vertical baby and young toddler crowd. The two-sided plastic wall comes with four blocks to use on either side of the toy. One side has three ramps and the other side has knobs-- each offers a different experience for dropping the blocks. Normally this type of toy would come with balls rather than squares and probably would have worked better. Of added interest, each of the cubes come with balls encased that will spin. Marked 6 month-3 years. More realistic sweet spot is 6-12 months.

Cloud b Twilight Buddies, Sheep
(Cloud b $34.95 Score:)

This soft sheep projects a starry night sky of soft lights on the ceiling of the nursery for little ones to gaze at as they go to sleep. A built-in timer turns the light show off after 45 minutes. This projects three-color options: green, blue, and amber. Just as you would not put a pillow in a crib, this is not meant to be in a crib, but rather in the room. Soft to the touch, this is also a cuddly but quiet good choice for toddlers and preschoolers who find comfort in having a nightlight rather than a totally darkened bedroom.

Safari Fun Twist & Fold Activity Gym and Play Mat
(Infantino $45.99 Score:)

A portable play mat and activity gym with lots of colorful patterns to explore. It has four overhead toys for gazing, reaching out and batting at, too. You can remove the toys and add others for sparking interest. There is also a small mirror and a pillow for propping baby on for tummy time. It is approx. a 29-inch square and folds easily. Though there are gender specific mats around, we like this gender neutral one with primary colors.  If you are looking for an oversized mat for twins, check out Mamas and Papas Large Activity Floor Mat.

Alilo G6 Cute Rabbit Player Children's English Song & Story Player Machine
(Alilo $59.99 Score:)

An awesome bunny (available in pink or blue, that is a combination night light, music player, story teller, recorder and customizable player that you can start using with infants and well beyond. The pre-recorded music, both songs an just instrumental, is pleasant and not the typical tinny electronic stuff. Push the light switch and bunny's ears light up and change color slowly and without big brightness. It comes with 20 nursery rhymes and stories that preschoolers will enjoy and you can customize it and add your own stories and music. The plastic body is made tough and the battery is rechargable. You can lock the settings and oh, yes, the volume control(built into the tail) is easy to adjust and has some real range, not just high and low. It comes loaded with a micro SD card slot and mini USB port to update content. One of the most innovative toys we received late this holiday season. Marked 12 months and up, though we think the music on a table in an infants's room would be fine. It's not a toy you would give a 12 month old to handle either. For the very young, this is a listening or watching toy. Preschoolers are the ones who will want to learn how to push the buttons.

SNAP: A night light, music player, story teller, this is a gift that will be enjoyed by children from infants to well beyond preschoolers. Best of all you can record storeis, and music of your own choice to the extensive library.
