2003 Award
Ribbon Raps
(Fashion Angels Enterprises $14.95 Score:) Organdy ribbon necklaces are very trendy and expensive to buy in the store which is why our testers really wanted to get started with this kit. Comes with enough material for five necklaces and five bracelets so this would make a good choice for a rainy day playdate. Kit has five different colors of organdy ribbon, a variety of beads in varying shapes and colors. Kit does not come with the clear nailpolish that's required for making a point on the end of the ribbon for "self-beading". Some of our testers thought it would be better if the kit came with the polish! A good choice for 9s and up.

Age: Later School Years. Award Year: 2003.

2002 Award
Big Top Flippity Flops
(Alex $40 Score:)

A very special handsome wooden domino-like set (70 pieces) that comes with clowns and fun action pieces that start the tumbling. The dominoes do not have dots on them for traditional domino play but you can play stacking games with them as well as knock'em down games. Our testers enjoyed making up their own color patterns. A classic toy that requires teamwork, patience and it's the type of toy that kids like to try again and again. Once you get them started you can bow out - unlike a lot of preschool games that require a full time adult.

2002 Award
Madlenka's Dog
(by Peter Sis, Farrar Straus $17 Score:) Any child who has ever longed for a dog will relate to this delightful fantasy. In a second journey around her neighborhood, the imaginative Madlenka goes to visit all her friends, showing them her pretend pooch. What a surprise! Each of them has a view of the kind of dog Madlenka should have and readers do, too with a lift of each clever flap! There's a glossary with the names of all the dogs shown in the book and the people in her diverse city. Don't miss the original Madlenka, in which she takes a tour around the world with her loose tooth. 4-7.

That is until she and Lizzy put their minds to work and find lots of ways to say "Do!" Both kids and parents will relate to this picture book that is more good humored than whiny. After sharing this you might like to brainstorm a list of do's like Lizzy's and her Mom's. 4-8

2002 Award
Fix-it
(by David McPhail, Dutton $6.99 Score:) Here's a board book version of an old favorite. Young Emma gets up early to watch TV, but, guess what? The TV doesn't work and no one is able to fix it! Not Mother Bear, Father Bear or even the Fix-it man. What can Emma do? Surprise, even when Papa bear discovers how to fix the TV, Emma has made a more important discovery about the power of books! This is dressed up in a toddler format, but the story is still more suited for preschoolers. 3-6.

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.
