2014 Award
Kaloo Colors Doudou Bear Good Night Owl
(Janod $24.99 Score:)

While it may be tempting to buy a big stuffed animal for a newborn, this little bear will be appreciated much sooner. Truly a first huggable. The smiling bear with all stitched features (including owls on his blue romper) that has velour knotties at each of the four corners that are just right for little fingers to grasp, touch (and let's face it, taste!). Inside of a regular body, it has a "blankie" body made out of super soft fabric. Comes in a lovely gift box.  There is also a sweet Rabbit version with a pink body.

Kaloo Perle Musical Baby Doudou
(Janod $34 Score:)

A sweet little cream bear with stitched features has a pull string at the back of his neck. Pull it and you'll activate a lovely old fashion music box. Just right for new borns. As with other Kaloo products, the bear comes is a round gift box making this a memorable gift for a baby shower.  We also love their more colorful Zig Musical Bear that has an accordian middle that moves upwards as the music plays.

Kidoozie Stack n Sort
(International Playthings $19.99 Score:)

So many ways to play with this 12-piece stack and nesting set with shape-sorter lid. All the pieces fit in the big bucket for storage. Turn the bucket over and kids can stack the colorful cups to make a tower two and a half feet tall as they discover size order. Knock them down and fir them one by one back into the big pail--another way of discovering size order. Forget about nesting or stacking, put the lid on the pail and use it for sorting shapes that will go ker-plunk into the geometric shaped openings in the lid. But that is not all. Every one of the cups and the pail has holes for safety's sake, but that makes them fun for sprinkling effects in the tub or on the beach. Kids will need adults to introduce this versatile toy.  A good choice for introducing size order, counting, color concepts, positions words, and color concepts, too.

Kaloo Mini Zig Musical
(Janod $35 Score:)

Hang this tan bunny in the stroller or crib and pull the big wooden ring to activate the music box that plays as bunny's accordion folded body moves up. Bunny's tan ears are lined with licks of green, the neck tie is wine colored velour, the body is turquoise and green, and his feet are yellow and orange. With stitched features, this is one of those easy to take along music boxes that can be soothing on an afternoon away from home. Newborn & up.

2014 Award
Earlyears Lil Shopper Play Set
(International Playthings $26.99 Score:)

So many goodies in this green felt shopping bag. An apple with a crinkle leaf and rattle, and orange that opens and closed with a rattle inside, a banana that has Velcro peels to pull open, a cabbage with crinkly leaves and a soft container with a cow on front and a mirror when you lift the top. Babies love the repetitive action of filling and spilling and these items are ideal for that. Learning to grasp these playing pieces, to pass them from one hand to another and to purposefully let go, helps to develop their fine motor skills. These fruits and veggies are also good for knowing and naming as well as early pretend. Or choose the bright yellow bag with a constuction set inside. There's a fabric vehicle, a stop sign, safety cone, a basket with a fabric rock, and a hard hat with mirror inside. This is the kind of toy that is a good choice for travel with lots of surprises to pull out of the bag as you spin a story and put the toys in baby's hands to explore. 6 months & up.

Earlyears Soft Baby Blocks
(International Playthings $16.99 Score:)

Four colorful fabric blocks that are purposely under-stuffed so that baby can easily grasp them. Each has decorative appliqués of geometric shapes and bright patterns and textures. Blocks have their own distinctive sound--a crinkle, rattle and squeak. Good for beginning lap games as well as being soft and safe enough for baby to handle when she's ready to reach out and take hold of things. These are basic gear props with multiple uses. Newborn and up.

Age: Infants. Award Year: 2014.
