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.

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!

Alex Jr Round the Farm Ball
(Alex $24.99 Score:)

One of the most adorable products that has come in for review all year! The soft fabric ball has four different animal faces. Each has their own set of ears that protrude from the ball and have a sound effect appropriate for the related animal. (The frog ribbits, the cat meows, the pig oinks, and the dog woofs.) There is also a small finger hole that our baby testers thought was great fun. On the other hand, we had mixed reviews on the Alex Jr. Busy Bee Discovery Flower. This floor activity toy has lots of things to explore but the electronic version of It's a Small World was just too tinny for our taste.

Tiny Love Gymini Monkey Island
(Tiny Love $59.99 Score:)

Newest in the Tiny Love play mat line-up, this one comes with the usual cross bars, dangly toys to bat at, mirror and bold graphics. What’s new here is a big monkey with a light-up tummy that plays electronic music when touched. We had mixed emotions about the monkey, but we think big brothers and sisters will like trying it out to entertain their new baby. Comes with a pillow for tummy time fun.

Lamaze Trotter the Pony
(Learning Curve International $18 Score:)

Here's a horse to bet on as a winner! It combines so many features that are sure to please the toddler in your life. It's a bright red horse with yellow muzzle and colorfully patterned legs. Small brightly colored satin ribbons are used to create a mane and trip for his legs. Trotter not only has big cloppy hooves trimmed with ribbons, he comes with built- in sound effects. He whinnies and hooves clop, clop as he is moved. Stand him still and no sounds emanate from his being. Forget all your preconceived notions about fabric toys. Fun for playing with baby and for growing independent play patterns for older tots.

The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab. SNAP ACTIVITIES: Making things happen can be challenging, but not with this jolly little horse that makes a clop, clop sound as well as a whinnying sound as it is moved. This is a pretty magical animal, made of bright red plush with multicolored ribbon mane that kids will like to touch, For silly fun run this horsie up and down the child’s tummy as it goes clip clop.

Lamaze Pond Stackers
(Learning Curve International $14.99 Score:)

Six colorful magnetic stackers in the shapes of pond critters. Their magnets are totally inside the play pieces for safe keeping and they “adjust” so that when north and north meet one magically turns inside, so that the play pieces connect. These critters fit into small hands and have chewy wings and tails for teething. Good for developing color concept language. 6 months & up.

The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab. SNAP ACTIVITY: Designed with the magnets inside for safe keeping, these little pond critters fit into a hand easily and allow children to develop their grasping and letting go skills. Best of all the magnets help the critters connect. How high can you stack these magnetic critters. As you use these with your child, reinforce color concepts by referring to the blue bird, the orange fish, the green frog.
