Check out this year's pre-school best (pound;20-pound;25):
* Bananas In Pyjamas - It's Party Time (age two to six, Dorling Kindersley) is fun and games with the two banana-shaped characters from Channel 4. This features unusually crisp as well as credible animation.
* Thomas And Friends - Festival Adventure (age three to five, Hasbro).
Tour the island with Thomas the Tank Engine. You can clean and oil him and help him prepare for festival day. This has neat, interactive play, printing out and colouring.
* Noddy - Let's Get Ready For School (age three to six, BBC). A British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) award winner and the best program from the BBC in a long while, this has great large animated graphics and activities on numbers, sequencing and more at different levels of difficulty.
