Learn and play
If you're in search of a toy that can help your child learn while having fun, we highly recommend the LeapFrog Touch & Learn Wooden Activity Cube. This cube has five interactive sides that introduce music, colors, numbers, shapes, and animals, which is more than just basic learning. The cube also includes musical instrument sounds and styles, as well as gears, blocks, and a shape sorter, which can help improve fine motor skills as children push, slide, spin, and flip parts of the cube in cause-and-effect play. This all-in-one toy guarantees hours of engaging and educational fun, making it a great choice for parents looking to promote holistic development in their little ones.
Fine motor fun
Our top pick for fine motor toys is Hoot the Fine Motor Owl from Learning Resources. This toy is adorable and helps children build hand strength and coordination. It has various features like spinning the owl's eyes, squeezing the nose, pinching the knobs on its belly, and dropping colored discs inside the owl. Toddlers can flap its wings to watch the discs fall out! Plus, the coins are stored inside for an easy clean up.
For a gift tailored to the exact age and developmental stage of the little one on your list, our top pick is the LoveEvery Play Kits! All you have to do is enter the child’s birthday and LoveEvery will show you the kit that is perfect for their developmental stage — with several options for each age range from 0 months to 4 years old! Each kit comes with fun items like unique flip books, sensory toys, and so much more, all in beautiful colors. Keep the fun going with great gifts for toddlers coming every 2-3 months with LoveEvery’s subscription model which you can cancel anytime.
Bring “om” into your home
If you know a toddler who could use some assistance in achieving and maintaining calm, we have the perfect toy in mind. Our top recommendation for emotional development and comfort is the Fisher-Price Meditation Mouse Stuffed Animal. This adorable plush mouse has a glowing cloud on its belly and comes complete with soothing sounds, guided meditations, and breathing exercises so kids can practice calming themselves down. The mouse has different sessions for staying calm during the day or winding down before bed with a guided bedtime routine. This gift is a dream come true for every parent.
