Do you have a child that loves cars? These Karz would be a great gift. They have a roly-poly ball under the shell of the car, so it can move in any direction. They are sized for little hands, but they look like they'd be a lot of fun for children of all ages! Three come in the pack: a race car, taxi, and fire truck.

The The Royal Tower Wooden Blocks by Haba are great because while they can be stacked in many different ways, only one way can erect the Royal Tower. So your child can learn order as well as stacking. The tower is made up of seven wooden pieces, each with a non-toxic finish.

We had one of these Fisher-Price Infant To Toddler Swings on our swing set until recently when Anderson became too large for it. The swing is great; you can attach it in place of a regular swing on any swing set. It has two positions, reclining for infants as young as six months, and upright for kids up to 45 pounds. The seat has a three-point harness and a try that snaps on in front of your kid. You can allegedly put snacks on the tray, but if you do, you're not going to do much swinging. It also stands up pretty well to the weather. We had ours outside for several years before the straps broke, but we definitely got a lot of fun out of it.

Musical instruments were a big hit this Christmas at the Super Cool Baby household. Anderson received a LeapFrog Learn & Groove Alphabet Drum. This drum features three learning modes: Alphabet, Dance Along and Musical Play. In the alphabet mode, the drum will light up with all the letters of the alphabet as your child beats the drum while saying the letter in English or Spanish. In Dance Along, a fun rhythm plays, encouraging your child to play along or simply move to the music. And finally, in Musical Play mode, your child is free to beat the drum however he wants while a new interesting pattern appears on the top of the drum on each beat. This drum is not nearly as noisy as a real drum, and it still seems pretty satisfying to Andy as he plays it.
