Our toddler gift guide features some amazing educational toys!

I adore shopping for my kids.  I thought I loved shopping for myself, and then I had kids and it was a whole different game.  I could buy all of these cute things and not feel guilty about spending the money on myself!

Now that reality has set in I realize that I can’t always go overboard.  So I like to put my money into the best gifts for my toddler.  Toys that are educational and fun.  Toys that help her learn and grow. Plus, the smile on her face as she’s playing with them doesn’t hurt either.

So I wanted to share with you some of the hottest, top rated educational gifts for toddlers this year.  I’ve already started shopping for the kids (I start in like April, I’m ridiculous! lol) and these are definitely on my list.  Take a peek!

Bright Beats Learnin’ Lights Dance Mat

Bright Beats Learnin’ Lights Dance MatIf your toddler loves to move, this dance mat just might be the perfect gift.  It’s interactive and fun! Plus, you’ll be helping them learn as they grow.  The dance mat includes ABC’s, numbers, shapes, colors and more.

Love2Learn Elmo

My daughter is OBSESSED with Elmo.  He is the greatest thing ever for her.  So I love that Elmo has evolved from just a tickle loving monster into an educational and interactive toy. This Elmo is hi-tech and connects with your smartphone so that you can customize over 350 responses for your child.

Lamaze Mix And Match Caterpillar

Think & Learn Code-a-pillar

Where were toys like this when I was a kid? This toy is at the top of my list.  Not only is it fun for kids, but it teaches them problem-solving, hand-eye coordination and so much more.  This Code-a-pillar is a wonderful gift that will ignite their love of learning.

Wild Thing Ride On

Wild Thing Ride On - Orange

So this one might be a reach on my educational theme, but it looks AWESOME and fun!  This Wild Thing Ride On (Orange or Pink) is higher priced, but I feel as though this would have been one of those things I would have complained I never had as a kid.

VTech Touch and Learn Activity Desk

 

Touch and Learn Activity DeskMy daughter would spend hours with this activity desk!  I love how it’s interactive and has over 30 activities to help your toddler learn (while making it fun). Plus, flip it over and use it as an easel or chalkboard.
