Kidoozie Alligator Wild Wheeler
(International Playthings $9.99 Score:)

Our testers loved this pull back car with a very sporty alligator in the driver's seat. By the way, Alligator does not come out. Pull him back and let him rip! The little racer takes off with speed and a pleasing clicking sound. Also available in red with a blue hippo in the driver's seat. Send for two and play a racing game. This is marked 12 months & up but will be enjoyed by older toddlers even more.

ELC Frankie Frog and his Flying Machine
(International Playthings $29.99 Score:)

Twist the propeller and this jolly plane will roll along with Frankie Frog at the controls. Unlike a plane for older children, this one goes slowly enough for toddlers to play with safely. The propeller makes a nice ratchety sound when it is wound up. Freddy has movable clickable head, arms and legs; he can stand or sit and wears a sporty pair of yellow goggles. LIke other vehicles and figures in this collection, they have a nice feel and heft. Not too big and not too small for beginning pretend play. A special toy for 12-36 months.

Tomy Monster Treads Lightning Wheels
(TOMY $39.95 Score:)

These scale replicas of John Deere farm vehicles are free rolling with the added attraction of wheels that light up when they roll. They have an on/off switch to conserve the 3 AAA batteries; but the light-night wheels are exactly what makes these Monster Treads stand out. 3 & up.

Age: Preschool. Award Year: 2015.

2015 Award
Mindware Leaps and Ledges
(MindWare $30 Score:)

They call this a towering game of strategy and luck and that is a good description of a challenging but entertaining fast-paced game. Players try to be first to the top of the tall tower without getting sabotaged by opponents who can send them down or even knock them off. Our testers and their parents gave this a 5+ rating, which says a lot, since they are regular game testers. It does require a fair amount of sportsmanship when your playing pieces get knocked down, so it may be better to play as teams or play this with the older members of the family. 8 & up.
