Picking out the best Christmas Gifts for Toddlers can be tough!

There are a million options available. The ‘Toys and Games’ section on Amazon for toddlers have over 50,000 search results!!

And clearly, not all toys are created equal.

The perfect toddler gift is a toy that not only sparks joy and curiosity but also helps enhance other developing skills such as motor, social, and intellectual.

I have included toys that satisfy at least one of those categories, but some even aid two.

The Best Christmas Gifts For Toddlers

A Musical Set for the Aspiring Musician

This 10-piece Band-in-a-Box set has everything your toddler needs to clap, clang, shake and bang. Great for learning about different sounds, each instrument can be played with their favorite songs.

Once play time is over, the instruments neatly store away in their own wooden crate.

A fun twist to classic Lego blocks, this Lego Duplo My First Number Train encourages imaginative play that helps kids learn with the help of some Duplo friends and a curious cat.
