Toys are expensive, so it pays to make sure you get your money's worth. That's why we conduct our annual CBS Toy Test -- to help you find toys that are fun, safe and durable.

The toys went to 57 child care centers around the country where 5,300 youngsters ranging from toddlers to school age tested them for us. During this month-long test, their teachers watched and rated the toys on a number of factors, including ease of use, fun, play value and long-term attraction. Those with the highest average scores made our Top Toys list.
For the software test, we set up our own one-of-a-kind arcade at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle. During its three-week run, thousands of kids from all across the country played and rated the latest new video games -- 75 in all -- for the Nintendo 64, Sony PlayStation and the new Sega Dreamcast.
The Toy Test results will be revealed Nov. 15-Nov. 20 on The Early Show and the Saturday Early Show.
