May Staff Picks


This month's staff picks include highly rated toys, from bikes to construction toys to furniture. Indoors or outdoors, these toys are sure to please.

Swingin' Smart Bucket Swing Seat Protector by BABY BEEHAVIN
— Reviewers liked how this product kept their kids clean in park swings, and also how the Swing n' Smart protected their fingers from getting pinched in the metal chains that suspend the swings. Perfect for spring time.


Rody Max by TMI TOYMARKETING INTERNATIONAL
— Reviewers reported that the Rody Max is extremely durable and bouncy, and encouraged their kids to get more physical activity. These toys are also great for kids who tend to get restless or rambunctious, helping to channel their energy into a fun activity.


Circus Ring by PLAYMOBIL INC.
— Reviewers reported that this toy is durable, detailed, and simple to set up. Once assembled, the set also provides lots of opportunity for creative pretend play.






g-bike by KICKBOARD USA LLC
— Reviewers wrote that this bike is well made. It helps kids as young at 2 learn how to balance on a bike without training wheels, and the wheels are able to glide over a variety of terrains, rough or smooth.





Rock 'n Table by EDUSHAPE LTD.
— Reviewers liked that this lightweight, sturdy product could convert from a seesaw to a table with easy assembly. The seesaw is balanced well enough that if one child gets off, the other won't tip back dangerously.
