Sassy My First Rattles
(Sassy $5.99 Score:)

Choose a predominantly hot pink or blue set of ring or dumbbell rattles. These are classic rattles that have been updated many times, but the basic shapes are exactly on the mark for baby. There are patterns for visual stimulation, textures to interest little hands, and quiet rattle sounds that are not too loud. In other words, this is just right.

SNAP: Use these colorful rattles for tracking games and early interactions. At first you will do all the actions to get a reaction. These are easy to grab and fit well in little hands when your child is ready to reach out and take hold of things.

2012 Award
Infantino Pop & Play Rattle Pod
(Infantino $6.99 Score:)

We like the visual playfulness of this rollerball rattle. Just a swipe of the hand sets the patterned ball twirling and changing its look. There are tiny beads in a see through ring that add a quiet sound. Attach to car seat or stroller or haul one out for play time interactions. These were designed forInfantino's Pop & Swap Gym that we passed on, but this and the Chime Pod are fun stand-alones. Newborn & up

2012 Award
Sassy Light-up Caterpillar
(Sassy $8.99 Score:)

Attach this big eyed fabric caterpillar to the stroller or use it for lap games. There are four segments, black on white polka-dots and white on black dots, a green velour like head and a bright yellow corduroy segment, as well. You can hang them all on the yellow ring or interest baby in grabbing the textured purple ring. Push the segment that says press and it has small lights that blink and electronic music. We are not thrilled with high pitched electronic music, but this is something only an adult will be able to activate. You can use it for auditory tracking by moving it from the left or right side of baby's head. Newborn & up.

2012 Award
Chicco Koala Rattle
(Chicco $5 Score:)

An easy to grab yellow koala bear holds on to a bent branch with two green leaves that will slide and rattle. The happy face on the koala is good for tracking before baby can even take hold of the rattle. Chicco makes a similar black and white Panda rattle that will be used the same way and will attract the attention of newborns who see the high contrast of black and white before they see colors. Also, a similar easy-to-grab Baby Birdie is done in bright red with licks of green, royal blue and yellow. It has tail feathers of orange satin ribbons.

Age: Infants. Award Year: 2012.

Tranquil Turtle
(Cloud B $44.99 Score:)

Our parent tester aptly described this electronic turtle as a night light with spa music. It is a purple fabric turtle with a light in the clear plastic shell. Put it on a cabinet in baby's room and the wave-like light will reflect on the ceiling while two tunes of quiet spa music play. It will turn off automatically after 23 minutes. This does not go in the crib. Newborn and up.

Lamaze Flip Flop Fred
(Tomy $12.99 Score:)

No political connections here. A small green turtle that is cleverly designed in fabric with a reversible soft shell that is satiny on one side with many fabric patterns and bold black and white dots on the other side. The shell has crinkle sounds and knottie tabs in satin. This is one of those little toys that will be enjoyed for tracking and fingering and even peek-a-boo games when you make the turtle disappear and reappear. Newborn & up.
