2009 Award
Eric Carle Chime Toys Lion/Caterpillar
(Kids Preferred $10 Score:)

A set of two little fabric chime toys to hang on the stroller or on the handle of an infant carrier. The chimes are totally inside the little fabric toys so they are what you might call...safe and sound. They can also be added to the bars on a typical playmat for baby to bat at or kick. There's a green caterpillar with a bright red head and an orange lion with a spotted body. Both make pleasing quiet sounds that may remind you of gentle wind chimes as they dangle in baby's sight. Older infants will want to explore them and pass them from one hand to another. With the sounds safely sewn inside, these are a small treat for the senses. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

Eric Carle Activity Dome
(Kids Preferred $20 Score:)

This is a fabric dome with a mirror and some peek-a-boo activities. Although it is an attractive large fabric toy for the floor, we feel there is not a lot for babies to do with it, whether they are sitting up or still lying down.  There's nothing really wrong with it...but there's nothing really right, either. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

2009 Awards
Organic Ring Rattles
(Mary Meyer $11 Score:)

This classic shape is good for tracking and soft enough for baby to handle without bopping himself in the head. Available with an elephant, monkey or frog's head; we'd suggest the frog with it's big eyes as the best choice for catching baby's attention. These have a soft rattle sound that adds to their sensory value. Fun to hear, see, touch and even taste, safely. There is also an Organic Baby Blankie ($18)  in this line with the same animals on top. Baby is likely to enjoy fingering this version.

2009 Award
Infantino Loop a Palooza
(Step 2 $23.50 Score:)

There are so many activities for baby to explore on this fabric rattle. There are many textures and patterns as well as crinkle petals. There's a peek-a-boo mirror with stain ribbons to finger, a pull bug that jitters, tow other fabric bugs that slide on their rings and even two teething rings that clatter when they hit each other and another with many textures for sore gums. Hang this in the stroller or car seat or hand if to baby when a diversion is needed. Its light enough for baby to handle and the fabric rings are easy enough for baby to grab and hold.

Infantino Wall Mounted Mobile & Mirror
(Step 2 $19.99 Score:)

Finding distractions for baby on the changing table can be a challenge. This fabric mirror with dangly legs and an elephant face that looks down, just might keep baby interested if it is hung on the wall near the table. Newborn.

2009 Award
Tiny Love Tiny Princess Mobile
(Tiny Love $49.95 Score:)

We usually steer clear of gender specific baby toys. Infants tend to see high contrast black and white and then primary colors first. But, sometimes, a mobile is chosen to go with the room décor. So….if you must have pink, here is a new one with the same kind of action as other Tiny Love mobiles and that is a real plus. As the critters turn they are engineered to spin in sight they are angled with their faces looking down, so baby is looking at faces instead of edges of the dangly toys. This one has a big pink flowers, a bright colored princess butterfly, turtle and frog prince. The music box can be turned on and off with a remote controller and plays Chopin, Mozart, Bach, and Debussy with birds on the nature button. Although the mobile must come down for safety reasons at 5 months, the music box can continue to function on the crib rail. Newborn. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

2009 Award
Tiny Love Classic Developmental Mobile
(Tiny Love $39.95 Score:)

A jolly looking bunny, horse and chick will circle to the music of Bach, Mozart and others on the latest mobile from Tiny Love. These boldly patterned and bright colored critters are engineered to spin in sight as they turn. Their faces are looking down so baby is looking at them instead of just seeing their feet. The critters twirl under cones that have eye-catching black and white swirls inside. There are small plastic shapes that click as they slide on the armature. The music box that attaches to the crib rail also has a night light. This mobile does not have a remote control. Although the mobile must come down for safety reasons at 5 months, the music box can continue to function on the crib rail. Newborn. The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

2009 Award
Satin Ears Bear Security Cozy
(North American Bear Co. $12 Score:)

One of those touchy feelie comfort objects that babies love to hold. This one is velour on one side, blue satin on the reverse and has a stitched on little teddy bear with stitched features, satin ribbon and licks of satin on the tiny ears. It’s likely to become a long term attachment object that offers comfort.  The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements.

Tolo Activity Play Triangle
(Reeves International $10 Score:)

Happy to see this Platinum Award winner back in the market! Little hands can easily activate the spinners on this rattling activity toy that's ideal for two-handed investigations. There's a ratchet dial on one side, a reflection bead chamber on the other side, and in the center there's a small spinning mirror, big egg-shaped beads, and a barrel for developing the use of individual fingers and as a colorful rolling toy for small social games. We have not received safety verification for this product and we have not tested it in an independent lab.
