For the Babies

For the Toddlers

  • Anything Melissa & Doug: Train Set, Ice Cream Counter, Pizza Party, Water Wow are a few of my favorites, but you know your child’s interests best!
  • Brio Trains & Accessories: We have the Melissa & Doug train set linked above, and have added on many different Brio accessories. My kids love playing with trains, and in general our train set is my favorite toy!
  • Nugget Comfort Play Couch: Kids of all ages and adults to can lounge, build forts, and more with this versatile piece of furniture!
  • Anything Green Toys: Made in the USA, very high quality, fun to play with, and many are great for the bathtub or the sand box!
  • Play Kitchen: Endless imaginative play possibilities, this is one of our favorites! We have the IKEA one, but there are so many great ones that will match and fit into any space!
  • Learning Tower: Get those kids up near the counter and helping in the kitchen!
  • DUPLO: Fun to build with, we love building the different sets, particularly making the pizza store!
  • Balance Bike: My kids love riding balance bikes! It’s a great way to exercise, build core strength, and have fun at the same time! We have used both the Toot Scoot and Kazam and have loved them both. Toot Scoot is great for 2-3 year olds and Kazam for 3-4 year olds!
  • Interactive Books: Toddlers love to read and they love books they can interact with! Here are some of my favorite interactive books.

For the Preschoolers

  • Books: Preschoolers are getting ready to learn to read themselves! Here are some of my favorites for that age!
  • Marble Run: My kids LOVE this toy! I had one when I was a kid and it’s so much fun for them!
  • Name Puzzle: This is a customized gift idea that preschoolers will love! My son loves putting his name together!
  • Wikki Stix: Wikki Stix are moldable sticks that children can use to create letters, numbers, shapes, other creative scapes, and more! There are different kits and individual packs available to choose from!
  • Color Wonder: Completely mess-free markers! I also think the paintbrush pens are fun!
  • Games and Educational Activities: I am a fan of the Educational Insights games for preschoolers including Sneaky Snacky Squirrel! Learning Resources makes great educational activities that are fun to play with at the same time!
  • Scooter or Bike: I listed my favorite balance bikes in the toddler section above — my kids have preferred the balance bikes to scooters, but scooters are very popular among many kids! It’s also a good time to think about a pedal bike if your child is interested in one!
