Stacking Cups

These stacking cups are a classic toy for toddlers and with good reason- bright, colorful and attractive! These are great for teaching counting and sizes.

Baby Einstein Wooden Pull Toy

Seriously, my 1.5 year old loves to drag her wooden pull toy around- huge source of entertainment for her! This particular Baby Einstein pull toy is an inch worm so it moves up and down with every step your toddler takes- this can be motivating for a child who’s learning to walk.

Giant Palm Grip Crayons

You really can’t understand the genius behind palm grip crayons until you have a toddler. Their pudgy hands just can’t quite grasp a crayon the right way yet- these are the perfect shape for a toddler to be able to grip and color easily.

Personalized Train Whistle

Give your toddler a fun way to make noise with this personalized wooden train whistle that will last as a wonderful keepsake.

Bath Bobbers

These bath bobbers are so cute– and they can’t sink! These are the perfect size for small hands to play with. Comes with a penguin and polar bear.

Play Doh

Truly, you can’t go wrong with play doh. So much imaginative play to be had! And also squishing and feeling- lots of squishing 🙂

Handmade Wooden Play Dough Toys

These handmade playdough toys double as play kitchen toys as well! The creative options are endless for rolling, stamping and shaping.

Buster Square

This square is such a neat idea because we all know that toddlers are fascinated with buckles and buttons. This fabric square has all sorts of buckles, snaps and buttons to entertain a toddler for a long time!


Felt Christmas Puzzle

These felt puzzles would make either a great stocking stuffer or an add-in to your toddler’s Christmas eve box.

FunKeys Toy

Okay, when I saw these toy car keys I burst out laughing. Whoever made this is a genius. My toddler is constantly finding my car keys and starting my car or hitting the alarm. This set of toy keys makes all sorts of noises and has a built in flash light too!

Minimalist Stacking Animals

These Montessori inspired nesting animals are so cute and perfect for toddlers because they are made of silicone and are virtually indestructible. This is a great open ended toy that will last a long time.

Babsy Books

These books are made to teach your toddler about everyday things and are meant to be read and sung together. They’re very well made and sturdy- perfect for not so gentle toddlers. You can use the code TODDLERS1 for $40 off your order 🙂

I’m going to be honest with you- toddlers really don’t need much. They’re still little and happy with such simple things. Every year I end up laughing because my kids (all under 6) are usually more taken with a giant box or bag than whatever toys they get.

That being said, it’s always fun to find something exciting and you never know what the real winner will be each Christmas. Perhaps it will be one of these toys or perhaps it will be some bubble wrap haha. Either way, Merry Christmas ❤
