Award-winning toys for the holidays

lindad14

Many new parents struggle with what to get their infants for the holidays. Of course, you want to get them fun stuff, but many of us would also like at least some of the toys to be educational. And let's not forget, toys are expensive, so you also want to make sure you're getting your money's worth.

The Today show featured this year's award-winning toys that should make holiday shopping easier this year. Some of the best of the best include the Lamaze Fun Mirror, which is ideal for crawling babies; Follow Me Fred, which allows baby to follow it around the house while playing fun music (don't worry, you can also put the tunes on mute); and The Pretend 50s Diner, which is obviously for older kids, but it looks so cool we want to play with it ourselves!

Even better: the toys range in price from $14.99 to $199. Check out the whole list at Link
