Best gifts for babies & toddlers
Here are our favorite Christmas gifts for babies and toddlers (ages birth-2):
B. baby toys — The B. Elemenosqueeze Blocks are perfect for little hands to grab and build small towers. Isn’t there something about kids building towers and being a genius? I’m not sure, but I know they enjoy playing with these little blocks. Don’t forget to grab the B. Wheeee-ls.
Frozen Sing Along Edition (1-Disc DVD + Digital HD) — those little ones LOVE to sing along with Frozen.
Bouncy Horse Hopper — These are the BEST. We received one when our first child was one and it is still used in our house. Play toy, step stool, pretend elephant, launching device. If a toy can last 8 years, it wins.
Vulli Sophie the Giraffe Teether, Brown/White — Everyone I know with a baby raves about this little giraffe. Top rated.
Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes — Baby Einstein has soothing music for babies and this little toy is one of the best for taking the stroller and keeping at home.
Micro Mini 3-in-1 Kick Scooter — This sit scooter works for tiny toddlers and converts to a Micro Mini Scooter once they are ready for a stand-up scooter, so you’re seriously getting your money’s worth with this one. You can read Angela’s glowing Mini Kick review here.
Fisher-Price Little People have been around for years. They’ve changed the look but not the appeal. The Fisher-Price Little People City Skyway is a VERY popular toy this Christmas. Toddlers spend countless hours (okay, minutes) pushing the Fisher-Price Little People Lil’ Movers School Bus, flying the Fisher-Price Little People Lil’ Movers Airplane, or playing with the Fisher-Price Little People Happy Sounds Home.
Push toys — The is definitely a must for a one-year old as they are just learning to walk and love to move things along. The Little Tikes Shopping Cart is perfect for indoors or outdoors. The Melissa & Doug Shopping Cart is more real-life and is best stored inside. Both have a good re-sale value.
Manhattan Toy Baby Whoozit — Buying a gift for a baby seems ridiculous but if you have a baby around 4-12 months this is one of the only toys you’ll need. Send this suggestion on to Grandma.
Melissa & Doug Low Loader — These are so great for kids to pull around the house. The large wooden shapes makes it easy for little hands to maneuver.
