Message from Dr Toy

The Best Vacation Children's Products are a balanced selection from large, small, new, and established companies across the USA, Canada, and around the world, and will provide children with exciting new learning tools that will help them not only do better in school, but also will provide more constructive activities while traveling or at vacation destinations.

The award winning products include innovative toys, books, crafts, games, puzzles, and many other play products for children of all ages and interests.

Dr. Toy believes "parents need more help to get a head start locating new, quality, diversified products that children will enjoy as they increase learning skills and expand creativity." The products range from hands on- to -tech for "hours of constructive, educational, and stimulating fun."

"Children learn best through play," says Dr. Auerbach, "and these Best Vacation Products encourage children to maximize their potential and make the most of Smart Play while on vacation. By making a renewed focus on summertime as a special time for choosing new products for children, parents help to improve their children's development. This is a perfect time for parents to 'take stock' of the inventory of what their children are playing with, what is not being used, and what they need next in their development."

Using extensive criteria developed over many years, Dr. Toy's Best Vacation Children's Products are carefully chosen from among hundreds reviewed at toy fairs, in catalogs, and through many other sources. The criteria includes: safety, age-appropriateness, design, durability, lasting play value, cultural and ethnic diversity, good transition from home to school, educational value, learning skills, creativity, improvement in the understanding of the community and the world, good value for price, and, naturally, fun.

These are products suitable for babies to older children, include products from hand-crafted to hi-tech, and range in price on the average from $10 to $100. The winning vacation products are affordable, well designed, and reflect the wide range of children's interests. Complete information about these and other products are included in the full report.

Dr. Toy's report includes company customer service numbers, website addresses, age range, price, and a full description of each product. The award-winning, on-line magazine, Dr. Toy's Guide, features full color photos of each product, links to companies to learn more, interviews with and articles by Dr. Toy, plus hundreds of other Best Products for all reasons and seasons.
