Gifts that are Built to Last
Finding the best gifts for toddlers can be a lot of fun. Unlike babies, they actually play with their toys, and you can play right along side them! The thing about toddlers is they grow FAST. In the blink of an eye they’ll lose that baby-look and become “big kids”!
That’s why we think it’s so important to chose toys that will grow with them into their preschool years. We’ve selected (and update often!) one-of-a-kind and educational gifts for kiddos in the toddler to preschool range, approximately ages 2-6.
These are gifts that your child will not only want to play with, but will also stand the test of time. We have a passion for wooden toys, not only for the planet but for the child’s sensory development. Non-plastic toys last longer as well, and won’t end up in our oceans or landfills.
We aim to find the best unique gifts that are fun, educational and durable. These thoughtful gifts will last, and provide hours of creative and imaginary play.
Timeless Toys for Toddlers and Up
Whether you’re looking for building blocks, creative play, wooden toys, or toys that inspire the imagination, here are the best gifts for toddlers for 2020. We’ve also got the best gifts for babies and kids who are a little older, too! Check out all of our Gift Guides to make gifting a breeze this year!
Energy Efficient Green Dollhouse & Garden
We envy the lucky dolls who’ll dwell in this chic, green model mini-home. Its minimalistic design and multiple sustainability features are designed for fun, imaginative play that’s secretly educational, too. The wind turbine, solar panel, recycling bins, and veggie garden will help plant the seeds of environmentally-conscious living.
Meanwhile, the kids are having a blast role playing in scenarios spun from their own imaginations. It’s even manufactured with wood from rubber trees that no longer produce latex that otherwise would have been burned. Includes all the furniture and garden tools; BYOD (dolls).
Janod Scooter Balance Bike
Before your toddler gets on the saddle of a big kid bike, they will need to learn to maintain their balance on a durable wooden bike.
Modeled after a retro motor scooter, your kiddo will be cruising the pathways in no time without the use of training wheels. It has an adjustable seat so tots big and small can remain comfortable as they ride with confidence.
It takes a lot of guts to share what you’ve got going on inside, but these plush pals give tough topics—from sickness to surgery—a soft touch. Wendy Bryan, an anatomically obsessed illustrator who loves internal organs and all their functions, organ-ized this charming line of stuffed guts that are designed to keep things light.
Illuminated Doodle Pillowcase
This amazing pillowcase that lets little night owls draw with light. Just doodle in the cartoon cloud or heart with the included light pen (or any light source, like your phone flashlight), and your scribble will glow for about five minutes.
The luminescent lines gradually fade, leaving a clean canvas for the next nocturnal masterpiece. No-mess fun for slumber parties or nightly creations, it’s 100% cotton and machine washable.
We hope you were able to find the perfect timeless gift for the growing toddler in your life. Our goal was to source gifts that had great reviews, were built with solid materials, and for the most part, are plastic-free. For more “just right” gift ideas check out our collection of Gift Guides here.
