Top Holiday Gifts for Toddlers

Trying to decide what to get that toddler in your life?  Here’s a list of the TOP Holiday gifts for toddlers!

Top Holiday Gifts for Toddlers

Can you believe the Holidays are upon us already?!  It’s crazy how quickly this year has just flown by!  For those of you just beginning your Holiday shopping I wanted to share with you these Top Holiday Gifts for Toddlers!  This is a great list for anyone….parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, etc.  I’ve made sure that every price range is covered….you’ll find gifts from $5 all the way up to $300….but these are all toddler approved and sure to be a hit this year!

How cute is this Monster Bowling Set from Melissa and Doug?!  We went to a party a few weeks ago with one of these set up and Little Man loved rolling the ball to knock down all the monster pins!  Now through Tuesday, November 26 you can save $10 off $60 or more using code SAVENOW At MelissaAndDoug.com!   PLUS, they have free shipping with any purchase over $30!

I love this Grilling Grand Kitchen from Little Tikes…it’s the perfect gender neutral gift so it’ll last for other siblings too!

Okay, I have to admit….I think I’m more excited about Monsters University than Little Man is but he does LOVE Mike and Sully…he goes nuts every time Monsters Inc comes on tv.

These littleToddler Bean Bag Chairare perfect for little ones…I bought Little Man the brown chair…it’s the perfect size for him and it blends in beautifully with our living room decor!  Plus, they’re like a fraction of the price of the Pottery Barn ones!

I really love this little easel for keeping arts and crafts contained!  I hate that the picture came out so small but it has a dry erase board, a chalk board, magnetic letters, and you can even hang paper to color and paint.  It’s only $55 and does so much!

If you have a Star Wars fan then you know these Star Wars Potato Heads are like the best thing since PB&J…Hubs is beyond excited to bond over Star Wars with Little Man….he carried it all over the store until I told him that maybe Santa would bring it (Yes, I’m referring to Hubs here)!  

This is a fantastic deal on a Melissa & Doug 4 pack puzzle set with case $19.99….I mean usually Melissa & Doug puzzles are $10 each so by getting all 4 AND a case to hold them….I think this is a great deal!  Plus, you can get free shipping and there’s also a promotion to get a free gift with purchase!

Disney is at it again with developing movies that kids can watch over and over again!  Now we have Planes….a spin-off from the beloved Cars movies.  Little Man loves Cars and says Vroom Vroom every time we see Lightening McQueen so I know if I buy him the Planes Movie he’ll love it too! 

The BEST Balance Bike for Toddlers

Have you seen the balance bikes for toddlers?  We got this for Little Man last year and he LOVES it!  Plus the price is fantastic!!

I actually bought this Castle Slide for Little Man last Christmas and it’s set up in his bedroom….yep, my kid has a slide in his room and he loves it!  It’s a great way to get them to use up a little bit of energy before bed!  I like that this is small enough to easily fit in the corner and it brings so much fun!  The Castle Slide is $85 and gets right at 5 stars!

So I haven’t seen the movie Epic yet but I hear that it’s fantastic…so I added it to the list since it was just recently released and seems to be the HOT movie this season!

What toddler with a TV doesn’t love Mickey Mouse…now you can bring the fun of the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse home with this playset….and it’s only $22 and available for 2 day shipping!

Boys and girls alike just LOVE Jake and the Neverland Pirates…this is a great deal of the little buckaneer’s pirate ship Bucky!

We got the Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Puppy for Little Man’s birthday and I must say it’s one of his favorite toys.  The puppy talks, responds to touch, and sings songs…what’s not to love!

Have I told you that Little Man has the BIGGEST crush on Sophia the First?  Yep, every time the cartoon comes on he is completely mesmerized…he even gave her a kiss when we meet her at Disney!  So I’m tempted to get him this Sophia the First Princess and Furry Friends Gift Set  since it’s less than $10!

I don’t know how boys instinctively know when something is similar to a transformer.  We have several transformers in our house but don’t watch the cartoon transformers yet but Little Man knows.  I like this kid version Lightening McQueen Hawk…it’s $30 and very very cool!

And there’s something about launching toys in the air that toddlers seem to find therapeutic….have you noticed?! This Toy Story Spaceship Launcher is pretty cool and on sale for just $9.99.  Mattel has other launchers on sale too…so you can get the whole set for a great price!

Train tables are just AWESOME!  Talk about hours of play and it’s pretty much all contained to one little table!  I love this train table because it’s the perfect height for little ones and it’s a phenomenal price!

Anyone else remember these big building blocks?  Well now you can get them at  MelissaAndDoug.com…I remember my brother and I having so much fun building with these– and they’re a great size for toddlers to work with.  You get 40 blocks for just $40– can’t beat $1 a block….plus MelissaAndDoug.com is having a pretty awesome sale right now with free gifts, lots of discounts, and free shipping!

I really don’t think a fantastic rocking horse needs any kind of quote or introduction!

Rock and Trot Plush Rocking Horse

Melissa and Doug Wood Puzzles $7.99  There are so many different styles to chose from….and the prices are better than what I saw at Target the other day!  Stock up while the sale is hot and they’re still in stock!

Another favorite from my childhood that has been revamped by Melissa and Doug….the Fold and Go Barn with all the farm animals $50.  Can you tell that I’m a Melissa and Doug fan?!  I really do love Melissa and Doug gifts because they’re great quality and educational!  Playtime should also be learning time!

Double Bubble Set $6.99 While Supplies Last

The thing I love most about this Big Digger Sandbox besides the low $50 price is that the blue ramp also works as a sandbox cover…keeping leaves and debris out of the play area!

The teeter totter equals hours of fun for little ones.  This Alligator Teeter Totter is $79.99.

Create the perfect space for toddlers this Holiday season with they’re very own Picnic Table.  There’s something about having a table and chairs just their size that gets toddlers attentions!  We actually have a little table set up in the kitchen where Little Man eats all of his meals!

Another slide set but this one is a little bit bigger.  The Hide and Seek Climber Swing is the perfect size for a small backyard and plenty of fun for all!  It’s like having 2 toys in 1 for $119.

There’s something about collecting toys and toting them around the house that gets Little Man going!  Oh and anything that can be pushed is just icing on the cake for him!  I was going to get a cheap one at Target for $15 but I was worried that he would topple over but I love the sturdiness of this Little Tikes shopping cart and at just$19.99 it’s worth the extra $5 for it not to break after a weekend of play!

Oh what fun it is to drive in this 2 in 1 Cozy Roadster 49.99

Ok, I saved the BEST for last!  How awesome is this Pirate Ship Toddler Bed?!  My best friend bought it for her son and he LOVES it!  It’s on sale right now for $299 and it’s a definite splurge….but can you imagine the pretend play that happens with this bed….ARGH!

Melissa is a busy mom trying to survive the preschool years. She loves a good Pinot Grigio and cuddling up on the couch for the latest super hero movie. Her kids enjoy getting in the kitchen and helping make a mess trying new recipes! Even though she's constantly creating new and delicious treats she usually winds up buying grocery store treats when it's time for her to take snacks for school-- at all of the teachers' dismay.
