It's holiday time again, that means it's time to find the cutest, coolest things for all the kids in our life! We've put together some of our faves by age to make it easy to shop!
Gifts for Newborns: Shake rattle and roll! Your littlest gift recipients are mesmorized by sensory toys that rattle, light up, make noise. It's the simple things in life! Also, gifts for mom or dad are also fair game and well appreciated.
1. Transparent Atom Teether by Manhattan Toys, $12 ; 2. Welcome Baby! by Compendium, $24.95; 3. Taxi Rattle by Estella, $18; 4. Flatbear by Elks & Angels, $49; 5. Avocado swaddle by Loulou Lollipop, $26; 6. Fruity Paws Gift Set by Manhattan Toys, $32; 7. Pip Squigz by Fat Brain Toys, $10.
Gifts for 1's and 2's: Your one and two year olds are starting to walk, and therefore toys that allow them to pull or push are great choices. Also stacking toys and matching toys start taking center stage in the playroom! Be sure to steer clear of toys that are labeled 3+, as even if your child is "advanced", these toys have small parts that can be a choking hazard. Best to wait until they're 3.
1. IWood Shape Sorter Drum by Janod, $32; 2. Giant Castle Kubkid Blocks by Janod, $35; 3. Tempo Music Set by Kid-O, $20; 4. Cat Baby Walking Cart by Janod, $65; STEM blocks by Manhattan Toy Company, $40.
Three's, Four's and Five's: Perfect gifts! At this age, gifts can get a bit more complex. Fine motor skills are being practiced, memory games are fun, and pretend play extends beyond Halloween! You no longer have to worry about "small pieces" as your child will no longer be mouthing things.
1. Tactile Puzzle Pets by Janod, $16; 2. Giant Magnetic Workbench by Janod, $110; 3. Rufus Dog Racecar Green by Playforever Toys, 60; 4. Tiger Bounce Hopper by Sunnylife, $45; 5. Monkey Pyramid Game by Janod, $16.
For your 6+ kids, the sky's the limit! Toys start matching their interests, challenge their skills of strategy and sport and more.
