A message from Dr. Toy

Welcome to Dr. Toy's 100 Best Children's Products Awards and Best Vacation Program, and a whole lot more!

We are delighted to share with you the results of many months of extensive research. We have traveled to every corner of the children's product world to ease your efforts in selecting the best gifts for children.

We present the very 'Best Active, Creative and Educational Products' available today, that are well designed, safe, and will enhance your child's development. We also provide extra tips about child development and choosing children's products.

Products from large and small companies are featured, all sharing one common goal: To provide children with the most interesting, practical and fun products. Products include toys, books, CD ROMs, computer software, board games, dolls, construction toys, transportation products, plush toys, puppets, creative props, science products, CDs, audio and video tapes, art supplies, kaleidoscopes, rubber stamps and very innovative educational products. Choosing the right product for a child is challenging. Dr. Toy makes the process easier and helps you make the best choices. Each child is unique, with different rates of growth and interests. Children benefit when products are given at the appropriate time in their development. They also need time to explore them.Children learn through play.They should not be rushed. Nor can a responsible adult be rushed into making a product selection. Children's products abound. There are over 300,000 toys and other children's products on the market, offering greater detail and more variety than ever before.

Dr. Toy's Best Children's Products Award Program provides important information to help parents select the right product for your child or for your classroom of children if you are a teacher.
