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 these pull-back cars from B. Toys as well!
Green Toys are made in the USA from 100% recycled milk jugs. How cool is that?
Bouncy Horse Hopper
These Horse Hoppers are the BEST. Every single child loves this toy, including the almost-teenagers. Play toy, step stool, pretend elephant, launching device. This toy should last for years. It comes in red, orange, and blue.
Giraffe Teething Toy
This Vulli Sophie the Giraffe Teether is not only adorable, but it’s incredibly popular. Everyone I know with a baby raves about this little giraffe.
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.
Mini 3-in-1 Deluxe 3-Stage Ride-on Micro Scooter
This scooter from Micro Kickboard is HANDS DOWN the best scooter for little kids. He should be able to start riding it at around twelve months and keep using it until about five years old (or up to 75 pounds).
It is spendier than most on the market but the design and function is vastly superior to anything else out there AND it’s three scooters in one. Buy it.
Fisher-Price Little People
Fisher-Price Little People have been around for years. They’ve changed the look from when they were first introduced, but definitely not the appeal.
Children’s Museum Membership
Your local children’s museum is a great way to get out of the house and let the littles explore. If you’re in the Portland Metro area, OMSI has a fantastic preschool area as well.
Anything a toddler can push will be a winner. It doesn’t have to be fancy — you just need four wheels and a handlebar.
The Battat Shopping Cart is perfect for indoors or outdoors and has adjustable handles for different heights! The Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Stroll-Along Walker is great for little ones who like toting their dolls or stuffed animals around.
Melissa & Doug Low Loader
This Melissa & Doug Low Loader is so great for little kids to pull around the house. The large wooden shapes makes it easy for little hands to maneuver.
Small Baby Doll
You don’t have to spend a bunch of money on a baby doll for a toddler. This small baby doll will do just fine and is under $20 (and comes in several ethnicities and genders). Add this adorable pram stroller for even more fun.
Baby Toys They Will Actually Play With
I know! Buying a gift for a baby seems ridiculous but if you have a baby around 4-12 months, there are a few fun options out there.
