Sassy Grasp & Glow
(Sassy $6 Score:)

Ideal for two-handed play, this dual handled toy has raised textures on the two toned grabbers that will be interesting to fingers and teething gums. Most interesting of all is the polka-dotted spinning ball that lights up when it spins. A flutter ball with see though side is also fun to activate. This is one of those toys that baby will be able to use to make something happen - at first by chance and later on purpose. It says 3 months and up. Comes in green with a lavender or blue light up ball. We'd say baby will need to be somewhat older to hold onto this.

Sassy Crib & Floor Mirror
(Sassy $12.99 Score:)

Even before baby knows who is in the mirror, his own bright eyes and moving reflection will catch his attention. The blue and white polka-dotted fabric framed mirror has high contrast black and white trim as well as a bold ladybug with a black and white tracker ball that moves with ease and crinkle sounding green fabric leaves on one corner. On the diagonal corner is a yellow and black bumblebee with satin wings that turns from side to side. Attach this mirror with its Velcro straps to the crib rail for newborns to gaze at or spread it's built in fabric easel form so that it stands on the floor for tummy time looking. The baby safe mirror is about as distortion free as baby mirrors get. You may get a few extra minutes in the morning when baby begins to babble at that face in the mirror. Looks like a big gift for the money and playtime value.

SNAP IDEAS: Play a game of hide and seek in the mirror. Get down on the floor with your baby and lean in to peek in the mirror  and then lean away. Like all peek a boo games this is likely to produce some puzzlement and laughter, too.

Sassy Ring & Phone Rattle
(Sassy $7 Score:)

A duo of rattles that will keep little hands, ears and eyes interested. The telephone shaped rattle has a black and white slim handle that is small enough for little fingers to wrap around. The end pieces have interesting contrast of color and groovy texture. Best of all it has a quiet sound that will not startle. The larger ring shaped rattle has a polka dotted ball, and three segments: a black and white segment, a ridged section and a see-through segment with beads that roll inside.  Three smaller rings clatter and slide around the larger ring that will fit in small hands. Set comes in hot pink or electric blue choices for gender specific rattles. A nice baby shower gift that will be visually stimulating for tracking, even before baby can reach out and take hold with her little hands.    The company has signed a verification form complying with our safety requirements. We did not independently test this toy in a lab.

Blabla Bird Rattles
(Blabla kids $29 Score:)

We can't show you all of the eye catching collection of hand knitted rattles and dolls. We love the many colorful birds and the easy to hold critters that are soft to the touch and have quiet rattle sounds inside. These charming rattles are beautiful folk art as well as pretty toys for the newest member of the family. Probably the best way to find these is on the blablakids.com website.    The rattles for infants are just a small part of the collection. Be sure to see the polka-dotted cats and ballerina dolls for older childen.

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.

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.
