2010 Award
Rubbabu Fireman Rubba Engine
(Rubbabu $24.99 Score:)

The wheels really roll on this beginners fire engine. It's made of a rubbery material that is flocked with soft red texture and has a black ladder that bounces along on top. This is a toddler toy with not a lot of details. 1 & up. The company makes a variety of small vehicles in bright colors. We especially like the Mascot Cars ($14.95) with a handle built into the body of the car. It's perfect for crawlers and kids who are still close to the ground.

2010 Award
Hot Wheels ZipBin Wheelie Backpack
(Neat-Oh $20 Score:)

Just right for taking along to a play date or Gram's. This backpack opens to a play setting for drag racing your best cars. Shaped like a wheel it transforms to a working side-by-side race track for dramatic play fun. There's a garage area, a winner's circle and built-in parking. On line it says that it comes with two sturdy die cast sports cars, but in fact the toy we tested came with just one vehicle. There are three holders on each side of the drag racing track. Or you can fit as many as 100 loose vehicles in this as a storage bag. Also fun, the HotWheels ZipBin Skull ($20) Shaped like a ramp for race cars to zoom down, this opens into a track and also stores vehicles. It comes with just one car.   3 & up.

2010 Award
Little Tikes Monster Dirt Diggers
(Little Tikes $29.99 Score:)

For the beach or sandbox, this big yellow plastic digger has an articulated cab, big wheels, and a spring action working 12" long crane that can scoop, lift, and release loads. The latter rotates a full 360 degrees. The truck bed tilts sideways to dump loads of sand or pebbles or whatever. There's a construction worker driver who can sit in the cab up front or in the seat that operates the claw. Its bulky, but lightweight enough to take along to the beach or park. It can also be used indoors for dramatic play and loading up blocks or other heavy lifting. This makes a not too pricey but big looking birthday or holiday gift that will get miles of use. 3 & up.

2010 Award
Toy Story 3 Spiral Speedway
(Fisher-Price $19.99 Score:)

Buzz and Lotso go racing down the two spiral tracks side by side. Push the starter gate and hear the motors roar. The original spiral speedway toy was a winner with toddlers in a previous format without a movie connection. We don't think toddlers are going to care about the Toy Story 3 connection, but they will probably like the repetition of the action. 2 & up.

2010 Award
Fisher-Price Steel Force Front Loader
(Fisher-Price $27.99 Score:)

A hefty front loader with working parts that will lift sand, or blocks and dump them wherever your construction worker steers it. This is a 15 inch truck that looks big but is not as heavy as your old Tonka trucks used to be. The painted metal trim is encased in plastic and sealed so there are no sharp edges and it should not rust. Also see the Steel Force Dump Truck. For smaller vehicles to take to beach or sandbox, see the Mini Front Loader and Mini Digger with treads from the same Steel Force line. ($16.99 each). 3 & up. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

Fisher-Price Steel Force Dump Truck
(Kid Galaxy $27.99 Score:)

A hefty working 15-inch plastic and steel trimmed dump truck that is light enough for kids to handle. The big wheels will ride through sand and mud and do a good day's work in sandbox or inside for dramatic play, loading and dumping with ease. The painted metal trim is encased in plastic and sealed so there are no sharp edges and it should not rust. 3 & up.

2010 Award
Little Universe Press 'N Go Ice Cream Truck
(Kid Galaxy $29.95 Score:)

Just in time for hot summer days, a jolly ice cream truck with that happy Good Humor-like sounds that say--come out and buy your ice cream! It has a soft body side and six big buttons on top to make it go forward, back, sideways over bumps, and to sound the call. The big buttons make it easy to activate and it goes slowly enough for crawling tots to chase. It's marked 12 months & upwe'd say it's more like a toy for 2's and up.

2009 Award
Doodle Track Cars
(Day Dream Toy Company $15 Score:)

Wait till you try these amazing little vehicles that will follow any dark line you draw! These Doodle-Track vehicles are truly magical! Bring home a blue or red sports car. Small enough to fit in your hand, yet these are loaded with play power. Each vehicle comes with it's own set of colorful stickers, a thick black marker and a small pre-drawn track. The little vehicles have an optical sensor that will follow lines drawn by a thick washable marker or crayon. The company also plans to make tracks with signs and seasonal decorative themes available on line that kids can download and print out at www.doodletrackcar.com.  This is a wonderfully open-ended toy that allows kids to dream up new ways of playing. Add original tracks into block settings or create your own raceway for multiple Doodle-Track vehicles to run. This comes under the heading of many good things come in small packages! Requires 2 AAA batteries. Marked 4 & up.   We think this will be enjoyed by older kids as well...not to mention their parents.    The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.
