TRUCE: Toy Action Guide, 2006-7

The 2006-7 Toy Action Guide is up from TRUCE. Go check it out! Always an excellent resource.

Interesting (in a mild use of the word) that Sesame Street's Sesame Beginnings DVD Series is on the 'Toys to Avoid' list. (See the previous post I did about Sesame Street recently)

Happy to see, too, that Bratz product is on that list as well as LeapFrog and Baby Einstein.
I must say, though, Baby Einstein seemed like a good idea in the beginning, but it seems to be going the way of Disney. Not to mention, it got a little bit creepier as time went on, and the fact that there is something terribly wrong with marketing to babies (under a year, 18 months) that sort of stuff.

They also have the updated Media Violence and Children Guide.

  1. Wow! Someone is actually suggesting kids avoid Bratz dolls? Did you know that they have won more than one "Toy of the Year" award? The mind reels...

    Nice to see there is a media violence and children guide, as well.

    Thanks for the info. Will definitely check out these links :)
