YBike Pewi

YBike Pewi

We love YBike's well-designed four-wheeler, which your tot can use as a push toy or walker, then later as a scoot bike. The rubbercoated caster wheels let him ride it in the house without marking the floors.

Ages 9 months and up. YBike, $64.99

Rock & Stack Pull Toy

Rock & Stack Pull Toy

Simply removing the wheels transforms this pull toy into a rocking ship. And its three peg puzzles with mix-and-match pieces let toddlers build an elephant, an owl, a lion—or a new creature.

Ages 18 months and up. Skip Hop, $20

This fun and educational game appealed to our testers, who liked rolling the large, plush cube and following the cues ("clap 5 times," "make a funny face") on the color-coded game cards.

Ages 18 months and up. ThinkFun, $19.99
