Here at Parents, we get the year's new toys sent to us months before the holidays (lucky us!) and invite kids of all ages to come in and give them a whirl (lucky them!). See which toys came out on top! 

By Jessica Hartshorn

A 6-month-old tester was fascinated by Yookidoo Gymotion Robo Playland unique for its two battery-operated vehicles, one dangling a toy above her and the other whirring along the side, $70

Playskool Fold 'n Go Busy Elephant is portable and easily tucks into your diaper bag so you have it handy when you're desperate for a baby-distractor, $25

Hand-knit from organic cotton, Estella Baby Security Blanket takes a lovey a step further with a built-in finger puppet, $30

Three activity rings on the adorable Skip-Hop Explore & More Rocking Owl Stacker are chunky and especially easy for the littlest hands to work with, $16

We've loved their teether necklaces, and now we're impressed with the Chewbeads Baby Gramercy Stroller Toy that looks chic even as your baby chomps it, $15

Babies love but can't always hold a round ball; grabbable rings on the Tiny Love Rock & Ball give them more of a shot, $15

Described by one parent as a "tough mudder for babies" minus the mess, Little Tikes Lil' Ocean Explorers 3-in-1 Adventure Course provides crawling, sitting, and standing entertainment, $80
