Curious little minds, tiny inquisitive fingers and small legs that love to explore: toddlers are some of the busiest people we know! Invite them to be inspired, go on adventures and investigate the world around them with this gorgeous bunch of gifts. We've carefully selected gifts that are designed to grow with them and be handed down, making them a sustainable choice. Here is PishPosh Baby’s Busy Toddler Gift Guide.
Gifts For Toddler Adventurers
Stoke your little one’s fire for adventure with a Stokke byJetkids Crew Backpack. Fit for everyday use or travel around the world, whether they’re off on an outing or to kindergarten, the Crew BackPack is designed to grow with your child. They can pack all their essentials, as well as any treasures they find along the way. It also features a pull-out seat pad, convenient for day trips to the park or hiking trips in nature.
Imagine what it must be like to be a small person growing up in a land of giants! Get your toddler involved in every day activities with their own ‘hop up’. The Dadada Toddler Tower is the perfect tool to support your child to safely and securely reach tabletops for craft time, countertops to explore new tastes and sinks to practice handwashing and teeth-brushing with self-sufficient ease. Easy-to-adjust steps mean your toddler tower will grow with your child and the beautiful finish blends in with your decor. In fact, you’ll probably want it for yourself – it looks very pretty adorned with pot plants or books!
Gifts For Younger Toddlers
Some toddlers love a bit of rough and tumble play – and there’s nothing better than when mom and dad get involved too. So make it comfy for the whole family with the Little Bot Ofie Baby Play Mat. This beautiful mat comes in four stylish designs with reversible sides and is created from super-bouncy, soft, non-toxic foam. Ideal for rolling around (who doesn’t enjoy that?!) as well as an inviting space to play with toys and read books. Oh, and it’s easy to clean, too.
Skip Hop Zoo’s 3-in-1 ride-on dog, unicorn and fox are the cute and colorful friends that will accompany your child from tiny toddler to big kid. Early walkers will love to push and pull their pal in wagon mode. Turn the wagon’s storage tub into a seat for ride-on mode. Then when they’re ready to scoot, just remove the seat, pull up the adjustable handle for your toddler, hop on the scooter and take it for a spin!
Toddler Gifts Under $25
We mention our range of Fat Brain Toys a lot – and for good reason! They are quite simply brilliant toys for toddlers, and because most of the range comes in at under $25, they won’t break the bank either. Made from high-quality silicon, they last beautifully and are ideal for passing down to other siblings. At the lower end of the price range, you can’t go wrong with the $12.95 Dimpl Wobl, which literally puts a new spin on teething toys for toddlers. The InnyBin at $24.95 is a classic shape sorter with a twist and is guaranteed to entrance even the most busy of toddlers.
What better time is there to enjoy play than bath time? This Boon Pipes Building Bath Toy is the perfect gift for a busy toddler, making bath time a scooping and pouring extravaganza!
Gifts For Toddler Girls
These artisanal Crane Baby dolls are sure to delight little girls! Choose from Clara or Josephine – both are dressed in gorgeous outfits and will love being cuddled or popped on an accent shelf to brighten up your child’s bedroom.
For those little tykes who love being on wheels, a balance bike is the obvious choice. Once they start walking, they’ll be off. Support them on their new adventure in style with the Mima Zoom Balance Bike, perfect for exploring the city or zooming through the park. The lightweight but durable Mima looks the business too, with its sleek design and beautiful chrome-plated hubcaps. Throw in the phrase ‘like a big kid’s bike’ and they’ll be utterly transfixed. The balance aspect will also help to improve their balance and coordination.
Want all the charm of a rocking horse but one that’s bang up to date? Look no further than the Ponycycle Ride-On. Choose from a brown, dark brown and black horse or a white or pink unicorn and let their imagination run riot. Suitable for toddlers aged three and up, these kid-powered critters will last for years, and have no batteries to run down or motor that can break. Unlike traditional rocking horses that keep your little one in the same spot, PonyCycle allows your tiny rider to move the legs backwards and forwards by gently bouncing up and down in the saddle. Time to saddle up!
If you're looking for a gift she'll love now, as well as one she'll treasure for years to come, Topaz & Ruby have got your back. These gorgeous 14k gold-plated toddler-sized bracelets are hypoallergenic and nickel-free.
Gifts For Toddler Boys
If you want to get out and about with your little one immediately but also want something that will foster independence, the Doona Liki Trike S3 is the answer to your prayers. Start off with them in the stroller then graduate up to the dual steering system before finishing with the trike when they’re ready to go it alone. The Doona is also super-handy and compact so you can take it anywhere, whether you’re off on vacation or exploring the city via subway.
Need a flexible scooter that’ll be with your boy from the toddler years right up until they’re five years old? The Larktale Scoobi 5-in-1 Scooter’s got your back. Designed to provide a thrilling ride for different ages and stages, it easily transitions from a tricycle and balance bike for your toddler now into an easy-to-use scooter later on, for when your little one starts to find their own path.
