These days it can be tough to distinguish between toys to avoid vs ones that are really good value - there’s just so much stuff out there. It's hard to know: “Will the toy really work like it’s supposed to?” “Is it worth the price?” “Is it safe and well made?”
That’s where we come in. We've been testing all the new crop and here are our top picks of cool new toys for 2014.
|NEW! Ophelie and her Chicks: How cute is this: a mama hen, Ophelie, can hide her four chicks in a large, cuddly egg in her tummy! Each chick gets into the egg through an opening of the corresponding color.AND, Mother Ophelie is also puppet for larger hands, and the chicks are finger puppets. Multiple toys in one: soft plush toy, shape sorter, puppets, and more! SO great for all kinds of fun. ($41.95)|
|NEW! Giraffe Safari Puppet Activity Book: We love the idea of a soft activity book that also has puppets! It's a great way to introduce the concept of a book (e.g. turning pages) but with enough fun to keep them occupied.Love that it has a handy strap so you can attach it wherever you want! ($16.95)|
|NEW! Djeco Ceramic Money Bank: Does a newborn really need more toys? Probably not. Which means it’s a great chance to get them a lasting memento. Like one of these gorgeous money banks by Djeco.Long after the baby toys are put away, they'll have this whimsical keepsake from their first Christmas. *sniff!* ($29.95)|
