Stephanie Graegin, the artist behind eeBoo’s popular “Animal Village” graphics, has lent her talents to eeBoo’s new Animal Tot Tower. Each side of the light, stackable blocks features a different illustration: the face of an animal, a rhyme, and the number that corresponds to the block’s place in the stacking sequence. For instance, the largest block features the number 10, an elephant decked out in a spiffy orange hat and pink dress, and the following rhyme: “The elephant is loyal, wise / And also packed with power. / And when she wants to take a bath, / Her trunk works like a shower.” Awards: Openheim Toy Portfolio Best Toy Award Gold Seal

eeBoo’s newest Spinner Game is an instant classic that the Sugar Plum Fairy herself would adore. The Dancing Spinner Game comes with four different dancers, and with each, a different style of dance: salsa, jazz, step or ballet. After each player has selected a dancer, she must spin for all of the items her dancer needs to perform: costume, bag, bouquet, head piece and music. Collect all the pieces to win, but if you miss a beat – miss a turn.
