Five Perfect Toys for Toddlers

Finding toys for toddlers can be super challenging! They’ve outgrown their baby toys–but not quite ready yet for more complex toys geared to preschoolers.  The toys need to match their new found mobility and desire to do things again and again!

Here are just five of my favorites:

Little People Load ‘n Go Wagon (Fisher-Price)

Step 2 Basic Rhythms Piano (Step 2)

Playskool Clipo Creativity Table (Playskool)

Schylling Color Roller (Schylling)

Rollipop Toddler Starter and Advanced Sets (Edushape)

The full reviews are on our site,

  1. One thing I’m really disliking as my first son (August 2007) grows up is how many of his toys he completely grows out of so fast! Many of your toddler picks seem to fall into this range so I’ve found myself peeking at the older groups and trying to guess at the ones that a younger child will be interested in.

    We love the Caterpillar Spillars though. That seems to be the kind of toy that will really last.

    You’re right–that is the challenge of this age group. The one thing to look out for in “older” toys is small parts. Most toys marked for 3 & up are due to safety issues and not a developmental label. There is also such a huge difference as you know between a one year old (technically a toddler) and a two year old–yet both. So some of the toys on our list are for that first birthday.

    It’s difficult to find experienced people for this subject, however, you seem like you know what you’re
    talking about! Thanks
