Below is a list of ten holiday gift ideas for toddlers from 12-36 months. There are so many great toys out there, so use this list as a starting point for your shopping and brainstorming. And head over to this post to find some more ideas about the types of toys that are perfect for toddlers.
7. Ride-on toys- Start out by pushing, then graduate to riding. My sensory-seeking little one has thoroughly enjoyed his longs walks with “Doggie” as he pushes him up & down and up & down the hallway until his muscles are worked and ready for bed.
8. Snap-lock beads- Exercise those hands and teach them to work together.
9. Potato Head- Expand language skills, learn about body parts, position in space, and how to work two hands together with Potato Heads ranging from classic to updated to extensive to themed (Toy Story Mr. and Mrs., Darth Tater, Dark Knight, Spudbob Squarepants, Spider-Man Spud) and so many more.
10. Stack and Sort board- Great for developing language, sorting skills, and an understanding of size, color, shape, and number.
