2012 Cribsie Awards votes are in and we have a recap for our favorite categories. With over 81,000 votes from moms across the country, we can honestly say that the Cribsie’s are the real deal when it comes to rooting out the best baby and tot gear around.

The 2012 Cribsie Awards are hosted by top parenting sites StrollerTraffic & A-List Mom. And, this year, for each confirmed vote cast—up to 25,000 votes—The Honest Company donated a diaper to Baby2Baby, a Los-Angeles based organization that provides families in need with essential baby gear.

So, without further ado, here are the winners in a few of our favorite categories:

GEAR: Cutest Step Stools For Tots In Climbing Mode: Manny & Simon

PLAYTIME: Best Toy Instruments For Bangin’ Out A Tune: Melissa & Doug

MEALTIME: Best Pocketed Bibs For Messy Eaters: Baby Bjorn

FASHION: Softest Layette Item: Carter’s

NURSERY: Coolest Storage Solution: Boone Stash

WEB: Best reason to join Twitter: Rookie Moms

See our 2012 Cribsie Award Finalist favorites in these categories and shame us for not picking the winners. But, in our defense, there were so many great nominees that we feel like they’re all winners! It’s hard to believe we have to wait another year until the 2013 Cribsies.

With so many products out there for baby, it’s nice to know that the Cribsies are on our side when we’re trying to make the best choice! See the Cribsie Awards site to view all 2012 winners.
