Gift Guide for Toddlers

Need some ideas for gifts for your little ones? Looking for some ideas for your niece or nephew? Need some ideas for grandchildren? I got you covered. These are the toys and books my little ones have loved and have remained our favorites over the years.

vtech, dump truck, one year old, toddler, toy, gift, guide

This little dump truck is perfect for a one year old. There are buttons to push that light up, make sounds, and play music. There are balls to drop into the hole and push into the dump truck's bed. This encourages hand eye coordination and keeps little ones entertained. This dump truck also counts to three when a kiddo pushes a ball through the hole. The blue lever on the side can be pulled to dump out the bed. And this little truck is a fun push toy with wheels that easily glide over the floor. We received this for our little guy when he turned one and it has remained a favorite. And now our second kiddo enjoys playing with it just as much.

radio flyer, wagon, toddler, one year old, gift, guide

This Radio Flyer Wagon is the perfect size for little ones learning to take their first steps. It's solid and stable giving little ones a secure walking toy to hang on to. I have also had plastic walkers and found that my little guy would loose his balance and the walker would easily teeter over. This wagon remains upright and does not tumble over like other walkers do.


The wooden sides in the bed of the wagon slide out and are removable which we have found out can also act as a puzzle for little ones to solve and try to fit back together on their own. Our kiddos like to fill it up with toys and push it around or take rides.

Strider, Bike, toddler, gift, guide

The Strider Bike is perfect for the toddler who loves to be active and is just now trying to figure out how to ride a bicycle. This bike has no pedals and relies on the being pedaled by foot and helps kids learn balance and steering before also adding in pedals and brakes. We gave our kiddo his Strider when he was two years old. He is now almost four and still likes to whip around the house or the driveway on this bike. He now also has a bike with pedals and training wheels and switches back and forth between the two.

Busy Buidlers, Busy Week, Jean Reidy, Leo Timmers, Toddler, gift, guide

Busy Builders, Busy Week! is one of our all time favorite books for little ones. It's a board book, so, it holds up to toddler handling and it's easy for them to turn the thicker pages and manage the smaller size on their own. This book is full of beautiful illustration with plenty of details that capture our little guy's interest. This board book introduces the days of the week with fun rhythm and rhymes that keep my kiddos bouncing while we read.

Little Blue Truck, book, toddler, book, gift, guide

Another family favorite is Little Blue Truck. This book has great rhythm and rhyme and a fun story about a little blue truck and his friends. This illustrations are beautiful and my kiddo loves to identify all the animals.


I hope these favorites help you pick out something special for the little ones in your life. Happy shopping!
