There are so many options out there when it comes to toddler toys, & it can be hard to know what it worth spending your money on! No one wants to have a house full of toys that don’t get played with very often or for very long periods of time, which is why I compiled this list of great products for toddlers.
These toys are the ones that have been played with the most in our house. They are the toys that were toddler favorites but still continue to get use even as my boys have gotten older! They are also the ones that I tend to enjoy playing with the most too 😉
My grandparents have an old wooden marble run at their house for the grandkids that is always a hit! It is amazing how something so simple can be so entertaining.
Magnetic Building Sets
Karissa & I both had this one on our lists of favorites! There is something soothing about playing with these – for kids & adults alike.
Aqua Doodles are a great toddler, road trip activity! They can color with water right in their car seat, & then put them in front of the car vent to dry them quicker & start over.
Play Doh Sets
I think there are an infinite number of Play Doh sets out there, & we always have fun picking up a new themed set. My boys get lost in their own world when we get the Play Doh out, & it is relatively inexpensive so that if it dries out or gets mixed, it’s not the end of the world 😉
Giant Cardboard Blocks
I bought these for my first son when he was a toddler, & they are still a favorite to this day. I don’t quite understand the appeal, but they have kept my boys occupied for HOURS!
Mega Bloks are such a great building toy for toddlers. They are easy to build with, are sturdy, can be played with inside, outside, or even in the tub!
Over the years, we have collected quite a few of these play tents. They are great for a rainy day to be able to set up obstacle courses & hideouts all over the house 🙂
Magnets are fascinating to toddlers! They can play with them on the fridge, the dishwasher, or even on a metal pan while you cook in the kitchen.
Dress Up Costumes
Being able to dress up makes any imaginative world more exciting! Start building a collection of dress up clothes & accessories that will be used for years to come 🙂
