2012 Awards
ELC Stacking Faces
(International Playthings $14.99 Score: )

A wonderfully designed set of four stacking cups with amusing faces clipped to the side. Use them for nesting, stacking, pouring and sprinkling. Each of the cups has sprinkling holes that make them ideal for experimenting with in the bathtub. They are wider than most stacking cups and easier to grasp by the rims or faces. Also, thanks to the holes in the bottom they are safe and will not pose a hazard that solid cups can do. They are also of unusual sizes; the tallest being the inside one and almost transparent for looking through. The bottom cup is 4 inches wide and the set stacks to 6 inches high.  These will also make good beach toys for sifting sand or water. 6 months-2years. 

SNAP: Big and easy to handle cups that empower kids to stack, nest and best of all use for fun in the tub.

2012 Award
Folkmanis Nibbling Mouse Puppet
(Folkmanis $13.99 Score: )

Bigger than most finger puppets, this white mouse with a very long pink tail, has cheese in its paws and a rod that moves its head from side to side. There's room for two fingers to grasp the rod to active the mouse. A unusual little puppet for special effects in any could even be the narrator! This is about as loveable as a mouse can be.

2012 Award
eeBoo 24 Pencils Bird Tin Artist Colors
(eeBoo $15 Score: )

A beauty of a gift tin of colored pencils. The flat metal tin is printed with birds, a flowering tree and flowers. It will make a gift to enjoy for months ahead. Sometime we forget how welcome a basic set of art supplies can be as compared to the novelty gifts that lose their pazazz almost as soon as the wrappings are gone. 5 & up.
