The 2012 National Parenting Publications Awards results are in
and we've awarded the year's best products for children, providing
busy parents with this year's sure-bet holiday gift guide.
These Gold Award-winners have been carefully tested,
evaluated-and played with-by expert judges and kid testers alike.
They were chosen for their entertainment and educational value, as
well as their quality and ability to withstand hours of play.
