Tigger is all done up in orange with brown stripes. He has big expressive brown eyebrows, a pink nose, a creamy muzzle with pink inside, stitched features and a long curlicue tail. Tigger's a pleasing armful, 14" big but light enough for toddlers to hug and lug with ease.

Two of Tigger's friends, Pooh and Eeyore are available in the same size and are equally huggable. There are also 9-inch variations with jingles in their tummies and Piglet is included in this smaller sized collection. Infants and up. Surface washable only.

2011 Award
Eeyore Large Plush
(Kids Preferred $25 Score:)

Eeyore is all done up in blue with a creamy snout and chest, big sad eyes, floppy ears lined in pink plush, and has stitched features. For some reason he is wearing a pink bow on his tail, but after all Piglet is a boy,too and he's all pink, right? Eeyore's an armful, 14" big but light enough for toddlers to hug and lug with ease. He's positively silky to the touch and is able to sit up without flopping over. He has a hairy mane and tufted tail that doesn't shed much, but may be more appropriate for older toddlers. Two of Eeyore's friends, Pooh and Tigger are available in the same size and are equally huggable. These are marked for infants and up, but we think they are a better choice for toddlers and preschoolers. There are also 9-inch variations with jingles in their tummies and Piglet is included in this smaller sized collection. Infants and up. Surface washable only.  The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

2011 Award
North American Bear Velveteenie Circus Monkey
(North American Bear Co. $20 Score:)

Back in 1993 we gave this pink and yellow monkey our Platinum Award. It's been gone for a while. This season the 17" monkey is back along with an adorable hot pink Knotted Baby Cozy. These are very short plush with a truly velvety feel-the cozy is softer than the 17" monkey. Both have stitched eyes and no doodads that will come off by surprise. Perfect first huggables with long arms, legs, and tails that make them easy to grab hold of and tote about.

Manhattan Toy Cozies Dog
(Manhattan Toy $22 Score:)

With a beanbag bottom that helps it sit on its own, this grey and white pooch with stitched features and a huggable body will please toddlers and preschoolers who love an armful. One of a collection of Cozies, the brown and tan monkey and smiling gray and white Dog are about as cute as stuffed animals can be.   Both have long limbs that make them easy to grab and hold and they are floppy  enough to lie down for naptime snuggles.

2011 Award
North American Bear Loopy Bunny Pink or Blue
(North American Bear Co. $29.95 Score:)

Choose Loopy Bunny Pink or Blue, a big floppy 16" white bunny with long soft pink or blue velour-like lined ears and a pink or blue bow. Or, for a gender free version, look for their Tan version with all tan ears and yellow bow. There is also a Loopy Puppy that looks a lot like the Tan bunny, but with shorter ears. Not only are these Loopy dolls an armful, they are each totally cuddly. They are big enough to satisfy toddlers and young preschoolers who like a big doll to fill their arms without much weight. The long ears and legs also make the bunnies especially easy for younger kids to grab hold of as they hug and lug them about. The dolls have stitch features, making them safer than the typical bunnies with metal in their stand up ears that can eventually poke through the fabric. These huggables also come in silky 10" versions with bean bag filling that makes them amazingly easy to pose in many floppy positions. Or bring home a soft unstuffed "cozy" variety for the youngest bunny lover. Our favorites are the big ones that are under-stuffed but pleasing to snuggle.

Age: Toddlers, Preschool, Early School Years. Award Year: 2011.

2010 Awards
Corolle Calin Laughing Cerise
(Corolle $35 Score:)

Dressed in a red and pink cord jumper with black and gray knit shirt, this happy looking 12" doll has a big smile and wears a pink and gray knit beret on her bald head. Her soft bean bag body make her huggable and easy to pose. Her face, hands and feet are vanilla scented vinyl. She has sleepy eyes that open and close. She does not come with the usual extras such as a pacifier or bottle or squirter water toy that would be risky with toddlers who tend to mouth their toys. This kind of bald babydoll is a safe choice for toddlers who are ready for pretend play but who are likely to still mouth their toys.  18 months and up.

2010 Award
Classic Pooh Plush Pooh
(Kids Preferred $30 Score:)

Though this does not look anything like any Pooh bear you loved, this is about as soft and cuddly as they get. Covered in a swirled velvety plush, this is an armful, though light enough for a toddler to hug. It's done in a pale tan and although it has a Disney connection it does not look in any way like a Disney character. We love this 14" version as well as the smaller 9" version ($15). The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements.  We did not independently test this toy in a lab.
