Award
Radio Flyer First Wagon
(Radio Flyer $45 Score:) Tots who are steady on their feet will like filling this deep classic wooden wagon with removable side slats. This is your "father's wagon"! Big enough for hauling favorite dolls and toys--not meant for kids to ride in.

Age: Toddlers,Preschool. Award Year: .

Music Cube
(Munchkin $34.99 Score:) Compared to Neurosmith's Music Blocks, this has poor sound quality. It's also a one-trick pony---playing a few tunes that cannot be changed with multiple cartridges like Neurosmith's. As each face of the cube is pushed a new instrument chimes in. However, the biggest complaint from testers was the lack of a volume control. It is super loud.

2002 Award
Little 3-in-1 Sports Set
(Little Tikes $24.99 Score:) Toddlers often long to shoot hoops and swing at baseballs like their big siblings. Scaled for little players, this satisfies their love of repetition. Basketballs drop into chutes and there are baseball and golf balls to swing at. (800) 321-0183.

2002 Award
Mega Bloks Wagon
(Mega Bloks $30 Score:) A tot-sized red wagon loaded with 50 pieces of oversized plastic pegged blocks is fun for making big, fast constructions. Pegs on side of wagon can be used for building up and over. (800) 465-6342.

Pull Up Ball Blast
(Fisher-Price $19.99 Score:) Designed for tots to pull up and stand at, this ball drop with a spiral chute looked promising. Trouble is, it's not weighted, so it doesn't hold still for tots who are still unsteady on their feet and the ramps don't connect smoothly for the ball run. Finally, like too many toys this season, the sound and lights are intrusive and loud. This is no substitute for the Tomy Ball Party toys. Marked 9 months to 3 years, we think it's too old for infants, too unsteady for young toddlers and not interesting enough for older toddlers.

2002 Award
Mother Goose Nesting Blocks
(Chronicle $19.95 Score:) A charming, well-constructed set of cardboard nesting blocks featuring Sylvia Long's award-winning illustrations. At first toddlers will enjoy knocking down your towers but before long they will delight in creating their own and knocking them down again and again! We recommend you bring home Sylvia Long's Mother Goose book as well.

2002 Award
Mama Do You Love Me? Nesting Blocks
(Chronicle $19.99 Score:) Fans of the book, Mama, Do You Love Me? will love this set of 10 nesting blocks that have the words from the book on one side. Each block calls out the specials words used in Barbara M. Joosse's text. While it's a stretch to say that toddlers need to know that umiak is a type of boat, the blocks each have a numeral on one side. Barbara Lavallee's wonderful illustrations are faithfully reproduced. If you have a toddler, know a toddler this book is a must-read! The blocks would be a fun way of extending the experience.

2002 Awards
Lamaze Puppytunes
(Learning Curve International $19.99 Score:) Companion to the original Octotunes( with eight squeezable legs), this colorful velour puppy has only four squeezable legs and is less expensive. We doubt you'll make real music with this, so, four legs might well be as good as eight. With crinkle ears and polka-dotted and checkerboard patterns for eye-appeal, Puppytunes has stitched features and a cheerful face. Little hands will find the legs on the puppy easier to push and make something happen. No batteries are needed, this works on the old fashioned principle of a squeeze toy that is hand powered. It does have a vanilla scent that you will either love or hate. They say birth and up, but we think older babies and toddlers will enjoy it more. 9 months & up.

Age: Infants,Toddlers. Award Year: 2002.

2003 Awards
Marble Train
(Kidstation $44 Score:) Testers couldn't keep their fingers off this old-fashioned looking wooden 24" x 11" maze that is loaded with giant marbles that roll, but can't come out. The object is to move them through the gates, curves, and swirls. This calls for individuating the pointer finger from others. Toddlers will return to this one again and again. SNAP Activity: This is safe enough even for tots who are still mouthing their toys. Yet the opportunity to make something happen while using individual fingers was very satisfying. You may want to sing a little tune as you introduce this game. Try "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush" or any other tune that suits your fancy. Instead of "Row Row, Row Your Boat" - how about push, push push the marble push it round and round......:

Age: Toddlers. Award Year: 2003.

Tomy Ball Party Symphony Tower
(International Playthings $29.99 Score:) Our favorite collection of toddler toys has taken a wrong turn. The newest is a tower with balls rolling down, hitting sound sensors as they go. Unfortunately, the cartoonish sounds are extremely irritating.
