Since Skibbles is a toddler, most of her friends are as well. Because of the nature of my job, I constantly have friends and family ask me what types of gifts they should get for their children. For this holiday season we have put together a simple list of just SEVEN unique gifts just for toddlers.
1.Little Live Pets with Cage – We originally saw these at an event and Skibbles hasn’t stopped playing with it. It’s a great way to teach your children about caring for animals at a young age. They start by themselves without the cage for approximately $16 and are approximately $40 with the cage, or can be combined with two birds. There are also Butterfly sets available as well. Pet Bird responds to touch, will sing, and record sounds to talk back to you.
2. I See Me Personalized Books. Every year for Christmas, we have gotten Skibbles a Personalized Christmas book. Other holidays are available as well. Their newest book this year is My Night Before Christmas that can be personalized with the child’s name, town, favorite pet, and so much more. It’s a great touch and the perfect book to read together on Christmas Eve. Order this one sooner than later. Book is $34.99
3. Creativity Can – These little cans are amazing and a great stocking stuffers for your craft inspired rainy days. Each can includes 100+ craft components for open-ended crafting fun. Includes materials such as: Air-dry clay, googly eyes, feathers, pipe cleaners, felt pom poms, popsicle sticks, and more. Each can is $19.99
4. Melissa & Doug 60-Piece Standard Unit Blocks – I loved blocks similar to this growing up and Skibbles loves building blocks now. Melissa & Doug is durable and lasts as a brand and even includes it’s own box for easier storage. Retails for $70, currently $55 on Amazon (Subject to change)
5. Sands Alive! – sand is awesome for building fine motor skills, but no parent wants to clean up that mess. Sands Alive is a sand-like material that is moldable but doesn’t create a mess. It’s awesome stuff. The Sweet Shoppe set in the above photo retails for $30, but many other sets available at varying price ranges, as well as the sand alone would be a great stocking stuffer.
6. Razor Jr. Twisti Lil’ Buzz Scooter – I see so many parents wanting scooters for their toddlers, but so often toddler’s aren’t big enough to reach the bars yet which leaves the child annoyed and the parent aggravated that they spent money on a toy that can’t be used. Instead, check out this! Available for ages 18 months and up and supports up to 55 lbs, it’s the percent riding toy for the little one! Retails for $44.99 but the blue model currently $$24.97 on Amazon (subject to change). Also available in Pink.
7. Faber Castell Jumbo Beeswax Crayons – 24 ct. Kids loves coloring, but it’s not always easy for their small hands to grasp a small crayon. More often than not, they end up breaking easily with a toddler too. We’ve had great success with the Faber Castell Beeswax Crayons. They are large than most crayons and they are easier to use. They seem to last much longer as well. Great stocking stuffer. Retail $10. Faber Castell also makes a great line of arts and crafts for all ages.
