This month, four families and three preschool classrooms evaluated three new toys (rating them on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the worst and 10 being the best). Two of the toys had relatively consistent marks across the group, while the last toy had received reviews. Of the three, The Picnic Game by eeboo was the hands-down winner in this month’s evaluation.
