Gold Award Sing Along Airplane


Supplier: Artsana UK Ltd – Chicco Brand Tel: 01623 750870 Web: www.chicco.com Price: £24.99 Age range: 12 months +


Description: A pull along plane to accompany baby, while discovering the world! Press the red button to see the characters inside. Four children with their pets are all introduced by a fun rhyme with real aircraft sound, the pilot’s voice, different manual activities and lights, which illuminate to the rhythm of the melodies.


Score: 98.5%


What the testers said: “An excellent product that appeals to all ages. The older children enjoyed the plane, incorporating it into other games, and the pictures of countries from around the world stimulated conversation among them. Younger children and babies are attracted to the flashing lights and noises and are easily able to turn the toy on by themselves. The string to pull the plane is on the short side, but this is overcome by the children pushing the plane instead. Both testers were impressed with the durability of the toy, and think that it is great value for money.”


Electronic Toys Overall winner


Spring Roller


Supplier: Artsana UK Ltd – Chicco Brand


Tel: 01623 750870 Web: www.chicco.com Price: £19.99 Age range: 6 months +


Description: An electronic, musical toy that encourages baby to crawl, thanks to the fun music activated when it rolls. It includes different manual activities; a bee flies from side to side, the ball spins, and the side-disks hide charming characters. Features Caribbean, pop and country music.


Score: 97.3%


What the testers said: “The music that the spring roller plays, and its bright colours, really appealed to the babies. It encouraged them to crawl with its rolling away motion. The activities of pressing buttons targeted the babies’ fine motor skills and were easy enough that it was not necessary for adult help. It is very robust and great value for money.”


StoryPhones Little Listener


Manufacturer: Ameeca Ltd Tel: 0845 652 0906 Web: www.storyphones.co.uk Price: £99.00 (inc VAT) Age range: 2 to 7 years


Description: The StoryPhones Little Listener MP3 player is a great new way for children to listen to stories and songs anywhere – indoors or outside. Children can record things, and the easy to use software links to the online store, with audio resources from many well- known educational publishers.


Score: 91.3%


What the testers said: “Easy to follow instructions, the children and adults found it simple to understand and use. The computer programme was safe because it had a child lock feature. There is a good choice of downloadable songs, rhymes and stories, covering a wide age range. The StoryPhone can be used to cover aspects in each of the EYFS areas, and had a good clarity of sound, even at full volume. An easy way to take music and stories outside. However, the battery life is quite short. Can be used individually or by a group. The carrying strap is very useful, meaning young children don’t drop it.”
