2011 Award
Beastie Balls
(Rich Frog $8.99 Score: )

Covered in a soft terry cloth like material, these colorful fabric balls have stitched on features and knotties that baby can grab and probably chew on. There are lots of zany looking choices in many color combinations and in two sizes. One is a little bigger than a baseball the other is slightly bigger than a softball. All are soft, washable and have a nice rattle sound. Use them with infants for tracking. The bold black and white eyes will catch their attention--and the sound will not startle. Older infants will like crawling after them and for early social games of roly-poly. Preschoolers will find these easy and soft enough for learning to catch and throw. All Ages.

2011 Award
Kid O Go Car
(Kid O $10 Score: ) Sleek with a smooth futuristic look, this shiny plastic car has built in handle that is just right for small toddler hands to grip. It's bigger than the miniature vehicles with dangerous small parts. A much better choice for younger kids who will love scooting this around chair legs, under tables and wherever else they go "driving." Available in red, green and aqua blue. Also nice, from the same company a red and white Tip Truck. 1 & up.
