2009 Award
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!

2006 Award
Big Spunky
(Gund $59.99 Score:) Older toddlers love big dolls to lug about and flop down on from time to time. The trick is to find something large but light enough for these little ones.

This is what you call a real armful that will get a lot of loving!
