I just LOVE gift shopping for toddlers and preschoolers! There’s always the cutest toys and outfits for them. For 2020’s gift guide I aimed to hit some gross motor gifts along with some items that are sure to entertain little ones whose worlds and schedules have been turned upside down. I tried to do a good mix of high tech and low tech options to cover all preferences.
- VTech Smart Shots Sports Center – I thought this looked like a lot of fun! It’s meant for ages 1-3 and the shape buttons introduce shapes, numbers and sounds. Includes with 50 plus songs, sounds and phrases. A good way to get the wiggles out.
- Little Tikes 3′ Trampoline – my boys STILL use our mini trampoline daily! This is an absolute must have for busy littles and builds gross motor skills while burning off some of the endless energy.
- Melissa & Doug Deluxe Standing Art Easel – This is another one of those toys that gives so many options for play! It not only holds a roll of paper but is also a chalk board and a white board. I would add art supplies as stocking stuffers.
- LeapFrog Number Lovin’ Oven – we never owned this one but every time we go to a friend’s house that has it my kids fight over it. It’s so fun kids won’t even know it’s developing counting, sharing and vocabulary skills. 30+ phrases & songs.
- Step2 Splash N Scoop Bay Sand and Water Table – If you don’t have a water table it’s a MUST. I actually used to bring ours into the kitchen in the winter and let them play with water beads in it. This one is fun because you can also add sand.
- Micro Kickboard – each of my boys started on their 3 wheeled scooters around 2 years old. My 4 year old still loves ours! I have gotten so much bang for my buck with this one.
- Melissa & Doug Pet Vet Play Set – My kids LOVE playing animal rescue with their stuffies so this is a no-brainer! I think this one is super cute, too.
- BRIO World Classic Figure 8 Train Set – I firmly believe every kid needs a wooden train set and BRIO is the BEST! I will keep our trains long after my kids outgrow them. Hopefully, someday I’ll have grandchildren that play with them. Wooden train tracks help develop problem solving skills and spacial awareness. I also like that you can always keep adding more track and pieces as they grow to make more complicated train designs.
