2014 Award
Blabla Giant Hercule
(blabla kids $198 Score:)

Looking for a wow-ee gift that will serve as a huggable, over-the-top companion, and room decoration? Find a seat for dear lovable Hercule, an elephant who is soft and cuddly and 36 inches tall. He's dressed up in non-removable clothes that are gender neutral enough for any boy or girl, without the usual black super-hero stuff or girlie pink. Babies will loke gazing at him, toddlers will want to sit with him ( or on him), preschoolers will turn him into a playmate who listens to their stories as well as being a huggable pal. Hercule is elegant and hand knitted of 100% cotton in Peru. He's really like a piece of folk art, a memorable doll that will be enjoyed for years. Please note, there are smaller less costly versions of Hercule and other huggables in the blabla collection. Are the big ones spectacular? Yes, they will decorate any nursery and are likely to be long term special dolls.
Pricey? Yes. Deliciously special? Indeed! All ages.

Manhattan Toy Lovelies Lindy Lamb
(Manhattan Toy $25 Score:)

From the Lovelies line-up, Lindy Lamb is totally loveable and huggable. All white, Lindy Lamb is 15-inches big with silky plush body and sweet face set off with tiny brown eyes. Lindy's bottom is weighted with pellets inside so it sits with ease. A good size, but light armful that will listen and has premade storyline. Itís all in the imagination of the child. IT's a pretty one for the nursery but even better for toddlers and preschoolers for snuggling.

2014 Award
Manhattan Toy Folksy Foresters
(Manhattan Toy $19.99 Score:)

Instead of the usual plush huggables, these adorable forest critters are very friendly looking crew. Bennett Bear, Finley Fox, Ray Raccoon, and Rabbit are done up in corduroy with its interesting texture, detailed snouts and two tone bodies. We especially like Raccoon's black and white tail and Fox's pointy snout and two toned tail. These charming critters come in two sizes:13" and 8". All have easy to grasp under-stuffed arms and legs and bodies filled with polyester pellets that make them easy to sit up. The smaller sized ones make a nice fistful for toddlers and preschoolers to take along; while the 13" ones are more like an armful. You wonít go wrong with either.

2014 Award
Quercetti Tubation Transparent
(International Playthings $49.99 Score:)

A 70 piece set of transparent tubes that connect like pipes. What we love about this kind of building set is that it is completely open-ended. Putting the pieces together is not only fun, but it helps build hand-eye coordination, problem solving skills and creativity. Comes with 28 straight pieces, 7 t-shaped pieces, 7 crosses and 28 curved pieces. A nice set to explore together.

2014 Award
Disney Frozen Surprise Slides
(Wonder Forge $19.95 Score:)

Think Frozen meets Candyland. The four main characters (Elsa, Anna, Duke of Weselton and Kristoff) move around the mountains high above Arendelle. No ladders here but there are big  pieces on the board that players may be required to turn or flip and may send a player backwards or forwards towards the finish line. Very straightforward and for fans of the movie, this will become a favorite.

2014 Award
Disney Planes Sky Race Action Game
(Wonder Forge $19.99 Score:)

Our testers loved the game play here that calls for "flying" your airplane from location to location. The planes are four soft foam gliders. You create a course to fly by placing the stage markers around your house. There are flight control tiles that challenge how you throw your glider (over your head, covering one eye, etc.). Each player takes a turn. The player that lands closest to the stage marker wins that toss. The player to have the highest score at the end of the course is the winner. 4 & up.

Fur Real Friends Get Up & GoGo, My Walkin' Pup
(Hasbro $59.99 Score:)

Newest take on Fur Real Friends: A very cute Furry White pooch on a bright pink leash. Use the remote to take her for a walk or make her sit. If you talk to her she responds with little barks that will not scare anyone. There is also an free app that you can down load with more ways to play. For the child who longs for a puppy who may be allergic to real fur or live where pets are not possible, this is the next best choice. It's not going to take the place of a real pet, but it can be quite satisfying for a while, and doesn't need house-breaking, either. 4 & up.

SNAP: A good toy too motivate active and interactive play. Getting the puppy to move motivates kids to use fine motor skills to use the remote and large motor skills to walk the pup around. The pup also responds to your talking, so this is a toy for all kinds of active learning and play. Even recalling how to make the pup bark wag its tail tilt her head and walk involve curiosity, discovery and memory.
