Sing and Go Choo Choo
(Fisher-Price $30 Score:)

Big chunky, jointed elephant, giraffe, and monkey have built-in clicking sounds. De igned for sit-and-play fun, the engine will soon be used for move-along fun. Fun to load and unload, crawling tots can easily keep up, as the train takes off on its slow journey accompanied by sound effects and music. They say 6 months and up, we'd say more like 9 - 24 mos. (800) 432-5437.

Taggies Colours Toss

It’s covered with soft velour but slightly understuffed to make it easier to grasp. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

2008 Award
Spunky Key Wind Motion Musical
(Gund $24.95 Score:)

Spunky is an adorable puppy (available in tan, blue or pink). When you turn the plastic wind up key, Spunky begins to play Rock a Bye Baby--and Spunky moves his head slowly along with the music. An old fashion toy that is still just right as a first musical toy. The musical sounds like a music box-- a refreshing departure from the more commonplace electronic music that has taken over most baby toys.

Lamaze Balancing Bug Stacker
(Learning Curve International $14.95 Score:) Five chunky bugs and a snail can be stacked one on top of another or explored one at a time. Our 8 month old tester thought they were best for teething and tossing. Each has eyes, colorful patterns and chewable wings, legs, or feelers. With magnets safely enclosed in the body of each, these are safe for mouthing and fun for little hands to explore. Add a box or bowl and they will be fun for filling and spilling. Marked 6 months & up, but will be enjoyed most when your baby is able to grasp and release--usually comes a little further down the road. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

2008 Award
Lamaze Chime Garden
(Learning Curve International $24.99 Score:) Our eight-month old tester enjoyed tapping the flowers on this colorful floor toy. Talk about making things happen, his touch set off a not-too-loud chime and a light, as well. This is scaled just right for the sitting up baby. Flick a switch and instead of single sounds each flower will play a familiar song. An attractive musical toy that gives baby a sense of empowerment and a beginning grasp of cause and effect. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. A sample of this toy was tested in an independent lab and determined to be lead free.

2008 Award
Mommy and Me Musicals
(Rich Frog $21 Score:)

One of our favorite collections of the season! These mother/child animal pairs (duck, rabbit, lamb and frog) play music when you pull on the baby animal. What's so special? They each play a different Beatles song ("Yellow Submarine", "Imagine", "And I Love Her" and "Here Comes the Sun") with a lovely music box quality. Charming!
