Hape Gourmet Kitchen $129.99
This is the perfect sized kitchen for little gourmets. I recommend purchasing the gourmet kitchen starter set and chef’s choice play set along with the kitchen itself so you can let your toddler’s go wild with their culinary creations.
Hape Walk-a-Long Puppy $24.99
Pull toys are a big favorite for toddlers, and this one will win raves. When your kiddo pulls the puppy, it wags its tail and its head and ears move. It can be placed in multiple positions and has rubber edging on the wheels, so it is less likely to tip over. Great toy for toddlers, especially those just getting on their feet.
KidKraft Table and Chair Set $63.92
A toddler-sized table and chair is ideal if you’d like your child to have their own space to play and create. I also like that it’s their place to make as much mess as they like–not on my kitchen table. The little net in the middle where kids can simply push in their stuff for storage on this table is genius!
My daughter loves playing with her blocks, whether she’s sorting them by shapes and colors, seeing how high she can stack them, or creating new creatures and objects. This is a wonderful gift for any child…and parents will have a lot of fun with this one, too.
Toddlers love to make noise. Channel their passion into music with this beginner band set, that includes a xylophone, kazoo, harmonica, castinets, and jingle bells. You may also want to purchase some ear plugs for yourself.
Alphabet magnets are a fun way to help your toddler start learning letters and their sounds and piecing them together in the words. Plus, they’ll make your fridge a lot more interesting.
Toddlers love drawing, painting, and coloring, and these paint with water books are a fun, easy way to let your toddler explore painting. Just give them a cup of water and let them go to town. The paint washes off of clothes and surfaces easily, so you don’t even have to worry about the mess. I also highly recommend other art supplies for little ones, including rolls of paper, coloring books, and washable crayons and markers.
The only thing better than stickers is reusable stickers. These pads from Melissa & Doug come in a variety of types and have a ton of fun stickers to fit various backgrounds.
These chunky puzzles are a great way to introduce your toddler to puzzles. They are great to help them begin to recognize every day objects and animals, as well as develop their memory and gross and fine motor skills. Plus, they’re fun!
Munchkin Snack Catcher $7.99
These are the perfect cups for little hands and containing messes. The cups are small and easy to carry around, with lids that allow toddlers’ hands to go in but keeps snacks from falling out. This gift may in some ways be more for you, but your little one will love eating from these, too.
