Dolls, toys, children’s books, adult books, electronics, and more! It’s Tuesday, and that means it’s time for another Weekly Roundup post where we tell you about some of the best products on the market! This is really an exciting week, because we have some diverse and wonderful products to share with you!

As many of you are already aware, every week companies, publishers, developers, and inventors send us media, products, and services from all over the world. We pair each submission with five evaluators. The best products and services earn our award. Our evaluators are not only experts, they are parents and educators just like you, so they understand what you’re looking for in a quality product. Mom’s Choice Awards® is proud to present the products and services that earned our distinction last week, between May 8 and May 14, 2016.
