Welcome! Today I’m sharing 10 Christmas gift ideas for toddlers. Sometimes it’s hard to know what they’ll be excited about and actually play with. Like the toy I bought for my son and nephew last Christmas. (It was the BeatBo that dances, moves and records & remixes what they say — I think the volume was just too quiet. And may be more exciting for a child that’s not quite at the walking stage.) They were excited about it as they opened it, but I’m pretty sure neither one has touched it much since.
However, this list is filled with gift ideas that have kept my son entertained over and over again. Hope you enjoy!
This gift is sure to entertain them for hours. My son was giggling when we gave this to him for his first birthday. I would recommend buying some extra plastic balls — one hundred sounds like a lot but won’t look like much when you get them in the tent. This style is nice because it folds down flat. But be warned — you may have balls all over the house, but it’s worth it when you see their happy little faces.
The most used gift we’ve given to my son thus far. 🙂 It’s a 2-in-1 meaning it can be easily converted from a trike to a bike. (Not a huge difference from the bike to the trike, you can see the trike setting below.) It’s awesome.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen this Paw Patrol bike helmet. Goes perfectly with the Chillafish Balance Bike above. Encourage them to be excited about wearing a bike helmet. They’ll love it, especially if they have a big sister or brother who already wears one.
My son sits directly on the train table (and it’s held up really well!). And yes, he normally destroys how we set up the tracks and all the pieces (haha!), but he has a ton of fun. It’s his favorite spot when I’m cleaning his room — he’ll sit and play while we listen to music.
These magnet building tiles are so awesome. Our friends introduced us to them and my son couldn’t get enough. They’re so fun for a little one that loves to create, build and tinker. A future engineer.
My son received Twister Tracks a year ago for Christmas. He is just approaching 3 years old and although the age recommendation is 3 and up (because the track breaks down into small pieces and cars also have small pieces and batteries), we just use some extra supervision. He loves this set and still plays with it to this day. The tracks snap together and glow in the dark. The cars are battery operated, so don’t forget the batteries so they can play with it upon opening! 🙂
I’ve found you can’t really go wrong if you give a toddler something to push around and load up with other toys. Give this shopping cart loaded with toy grocery items. This particular cart from Little Tykes also comes in pink and purple.
I love these lil’ quads because they are toddler friendly, don’t take up a lot of room and they’re affordable. Prepare for pure joy and excitement when they open this one. Not to mention hours of fun.
Last but not least, a favorite of my son’s. It’s very rare that he doesn’t have a car of some sort in hand. These friction powered toys are some of his favorites. And they’re very durable. 🙂
I hope you’re able to find something the toddler on your list will love! If I missed one of your favorites, please add it in the comments below. Thanks for stopping by and happy holidays!
