Munchkin Caterpillar Spillers
(Munchkin $6.95 Score:)

A well designed set of seven cups that are perfect for little hands to explore. Each is brightly colored and comes with a variety of openings for pouring fun in the bathtub. This is the perfect kind of take along toy in the diaper bag for a sitting up baby/toddler. Our one year old tester sat quietly while she enjoyed being about to pick up each cup by the easy to grasp handles. The caterpillar's green face has big eyes and the smallest cup has an fun spinner to activate. You can stack them up and let your baby enjoy knocking them down. A good example of a great toy that doesn't have any bells and whistle or an expensive price tag.

The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab. SNAP ACTIVITIES: Stacking and nesting are the least of what kids can do with these colorful cups that each have different cut outs that allow them to be used in the sand or tub…for watching water or sand slip through. These are also fun for children to knock down after they are stacked up tall. Use color words to refer to the cup the child is picking up and refer to them by size…that one is the smallest…or this one is the biggest.

Spot Large Plush
(Kids Preferred $30 Score:)

An adorable armful of a 16" yellow pup with brown spot on its side and on the tip of its tail. This looks like it jumped out of the ever popular Eric Hill Spot books. Big enough to satisfy toddlers who will love cuddling and lugging their very own Spot about. Also adorable, a handful of fun, a 6" Velour Spot Beanie ($9) that will fit into little hands. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

2009 Award
My Natural Tiny Love Collection
(Hosung NY $9.99 Score:)

If you're looking for soft sweet huggables that are made from 100% non-toxic cotton--and will appeal to both boys and girls--look no further than this new collection from Hosung NY. They are just right (and safe) for infants and toddlers - made with velour bodies and stitched features. We really loved their three collections - all produced a round of oohs. There is the Long Leg Collection (sans clothes) - they retail for $14.99, the Tiny Love Collection are a very reasonable $9.99. The Tiny Tots Collections are smaller animals that have a sense of humor and joy about them. Unlike many “natural” collections we’ve seen, they are very vivid and don’t have that “ok, it doesn’t look great, but it’s very green and pc”. Each are something you’d be happy sharing with the toddlers in your life….hooray!

2009 Award
Lamaze Busy Bug
(Learning Curve International $18 Score:)

Clap this suction cup toy on the feeding table and get ready for easy action. Baby can bat at the bug or pull it to make it shake. It has small rings and beads that rattle and move adding sound, color and items to manipulate. Since they are tethered down they are safe enough for baby’s little fingers to explore. The jolly green bug head with two yellow antennae wears a friendly big smile. We thought this might be top heavy and not stand up to typical play. But its base is broad without taking up tons of room on the feeding table. 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.
