Today I’m back with my second gift guide for the holiday season with a list of 20 gift ideas for toddlers. This is a fun stage because kids start to understand holidays and get excited to open gifts. The toys also get more fun at this age, and if you choose them carefully they can grow with your child for years. Here are some favorites…
1 | RADIO FLYER MY FIRST WAGON: Toddlers love being about to transport their toys. This two-in-one wagon lets them do just that but the handle can also be locked and the wagon used as a walker.
2 | LEARNING RESOURCES JUMBO ANIMALS: Simple toy animals are one of the best toys you can buy your kid. These jumbo animals are a fun size for toddlers but will grow with them for years.
3 | MELISSA & DOUG POKE-A-DOT BOOK: We love poke-a-dot books! They are interactive board books with buttons to press and “POP!” on every page. See all the titles here.
4 | STRIDER 2-IN-1 ROCKING BIKE: This 2-in-1 rocking bike comes with a 12″ balance bike and a rocking base. Before your toddler is ready to ride, they can get comfortable (and have fun!) on their bike while it’s in the rocking base. Once they’re ready to ride, just remove the base and they’re ready to ride!
5 | FAT BRAIN TOYS SPINAGAIN: The first-ever twirling stacking toy! Drop the discs onto the corkscrew pole and watch as they spin down to the base. Each disk is dual-colored and creates a rainbow when stacked from largest to smallest.
6 | JANOD WOODEN CAMERA: Press the shutter button for lights and sound effects and look through the kaleidoscope lens of this adorable wooden camera.
7 | GUIDECRAFT KITCHEN HELPER: The kitchen helper is an adjustable and secure platform that toddlers use to reach the counter. They’ll love helping you bake, cook, do the dishes, and any other chore.
8 | BABY STELLA DOLL: Baby Stella is a soft doll with embroidered facial features and a magnetic pacifier making it the perfect first baby for your baby. There are 12″ Wee Baby Stella Dolls and 15″ Baby Stella Dolls with a variety of hair colors and skin tones. See them all here.
9 | LITTLE PEOPLE FRIENDLY SCHOOL: This adorable interactive schoolhouse has classrooms, a cafeteria, and a playground to introduce your toddler to school. Songs, sounds, and interactive features bring the schoolhouse to life.
10 | TOY DYSON BALL VACUUM: A toy replica of the Dyson Ball Vacuum with “twist and turn” action just like the real thing. It even has cyclone action, realistic sounds, and working suction.
11 | SAGO MINI PILLOW PLAYSET: Unfold the pillow and discover a hidden playset with accessories! Choose from a doctor’s office, kitchen, or dollhouse.
12 | MUDPUPPY JUMBO PUZZLE: Mudpuppy puzzles are my favorite. These jumbo puzzles are best for the 2+ crowd and come with a carry-along box.
13 | HAPE MAGIC TOUCH PIANO: Magic Touch technology makes this piano play when little fingers touch the keys. Your toddler can improvise or play along with the included music sheets by matching the colored notes to the painted keys.
14 | STRIPED NOD CHAIR: Your toddler will love a spot of their own to sit and read a book or enjoy a snack. For an extra $10, you can even get it personalized with their name.
15 | SKIP HOP 3-IN-1 RIDE-ON: An adorable ride-on that hit the market this year. It’s first a wagon for early walkers, then a ride-on, and finally a scooter!
16 | GREEN TOYS PADDLE BOAT: This NEW paddle boat from Green Toys features a water spout in the front which allows kids to scoop and pour water. And like all Green Toys, it’s made from 100% recycled milk jugs and is dishwasher safe.
17 | SKIP HOP YETI SHAPE SORTER: This yeti is not just adorable, but teaches shapes and colors in three phases! In the first phase, the shapes light up and Yeti announces the shape when pressed. Then as your little one grows, Yeti becomes a shape sorter with lights and music. And finally, in game mode, Yeti encourages your child to find specific shapes and colors.
18 | CHILLAFISH TRACKIE 2-IN-1 RIDE ON: The Chillafish Trackie is a rocker, walker, and a ride-on toy in one, so it will grow with your child up to five years. Switch from walker to ride-on takes seconds, so kids can easily go back and forth between the two modes.
19 | LOVEVERY BLOCK SET: This amazing block set has 70 heirloom-quality wood pieces in more than a dozen shapes including arches, wheels, dolls, a bead threader, rolling ramp, and shape sorter, all of which can be stored in the box. It’s designed with 20+ activities that will grow with your child from 18 months to 4 years.
20 | CUBIKA WOODEN TRUCK WITH CARS: This colorful truck-trailer comes with eight different cars that can be sorted and stacked on the back.
