Good Housekeeping’s Best Toys for 2012 Awards List

Top Toys 2012 According to Good Housekeeping Magazine Offer Many Choices

Staff Report

NEW YORK, NY - According to reports and rumors on the Internet, some of the people who tested toys for the Good Housekeeping Top Toys of 2012 list were still wearing diapers. However, in some cases, this is a good thing. When you put a toy in front of a child, there is no messing around. They are going to like it or not like it, play with it or not play with it. This can be valuable information.

Good Housekeeping has been doing this for a while now, but their 2012 Best Toys list is pretty interesting in a few different ways. For one, there are quite a few toys on it that are actually affordable. Yes, a toy that children like to play with that does not have an outrageous price tag. There are other surprises on the list as well. We recommend you pick up the latest issue of Good Housekeeping in print or check them out online. Here is a peek at some of what they found.
