    Under 1 Year Old

    1. A four-wheeled, Hape "Scoot Around Ride-On" wood bike with rubber wheels that'll take it easy on your floors as your toddler develops motor skills as well as strength and balance (because wood ain't light).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is the perfect scooter for a 1- to 3-year-old. When my son was learning to stand/walk, he'd use this as a walker by grabbing the handles and pushing it around. Sometimes he'd push from the back and scoot on his knees. He learned how to get on and off by himself after a year old. Now he can scoot. Pretty soon (when his legs grow a little longer) he'll get the idea and can really go!" —Muffin

    Get it from Amazon for $52.19.

    2. A Fisher-Price Rollin' Rovee with four play modes as the baby grows from an infant to a toddler to a preschooler teaching the alphabet, counting, opposites, and how to follow directions while busting out 190+ sounds, songs, and phrases.

    Promising review: "Oh my goodness! My 20-month-old son adores Rovee! The singing, dancing, stretching, and ball play, Rovee is the best!" —Nisella
    Get it from Amazon for $38.88.

    3. "Rock me, Amadeus!" A magic cube so kiddies can compose and remix some of Mozart's classical music masterpieces. It's baby's first beats lab but, like, totally classy and classical.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My son plays with it for up to 15 minutes many times a day. I never get sick of the songs. Like another reviewer said, it's the perfect size for the baby to use as a counterbalance while learning to sit up. Every baby/parent needs this toy. If they came out with another cube with new songs/instruments I would buy it in a heartbeat!" —Kevin

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99.

    4. A Learning Resources "Max The Fine Motor Moose" for building coordination, hand-strength, and color-matching skills in the tiniest of hands. And now we really know what antlers are for!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Everything from Learning Resources is so well thought out but fun. Love that this has a little cabinet in the back to keep the rings so you don’t lose. My daughter loves putting the rings on the antlers and in the cubby. Easy to travel with. Such a cute little guy that also makes a tot think." —Monica Padilla

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    5. A talking and singing LeapFrog Yum-2-3 Toaster to learn all about numbers, colors, and the most important meal of the day! The best part? Can't burn the toast.

    Amazon

    Requires two AAA batteries.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.96.

    1+ Years Old

    6. A set of handcrafted, nontoxic constellation blocks to learn the symbols, names, hemispheres, and scale of magnitude for 16 constellations in the night sky.

    amazon.com, Amazon

    These are perhaps the most beautifully designed and interesting set of wooden blocks that's I've ever encountered. I liked them so much I bought them way before my kid would even be to use them. Having nearly failed my astronomy course in college, I figured this would be a great way for us to learn all about the constellations together as I pretend to know what I'm talking about. So when my kid asks, "Dad, where is Orion's belt?" I won't have to answer, "Around his waist."

    Get it from Amazon for $25.

    7. An Educational Insights plush vegetable garden for kids who show an interest in developing a green thumb (and parents who'd prefer them not to track any more dirt into the house).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "What a cute alternative to plastic play food! My 2-year-old loves the plush veggies. She likes to plant them, pretend to water them, harvest them, and take them to her play kitchen to wash, cut, and cook them. It's so fun to see her imagination play out with something so simple as vegetables. They are well made and the eco-friendly crate is durable through all the pushing of the veggies into the soil." —N. Min

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

    8. A "Learn-A-Lot Avocados" game, because one's love of guacamole's main ingredient should start at an early age. Plus this toy really helps with the old color identification and matching skills.

    Target

    Did you know avocados are also called alligator pears and that "botanically" they are classified as a berry? Well, now you do.

    Get it from Target for $14.99.

    9. A three-wheeled micro scooter with an adjustable handlebar to grow with your toddler as they improve their balance and motor skills while whizzing by at seemingly breakneck speeds.

    Amazon

    Also includes a two-year manufacturer's warranty.

    Promising review: "Best scooter ever! It’s an easy assembly. It’s a smooth ride and the perfect size for a 2-year-old. Spend more money and go with the deluxe model especially if your child is only 2. I brought this to the park today and two more of my mommy friends went home and bought their kids these today too! They come in the most beautiful colors. Kids are not really taught how to use these, they seem to just get on them and go! It was amazing to see my 2-year-old-take off like a champ!" —TexSpaceman12

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99 (available in 11 colors).

    10. A Learning Resources "Peekaboo Learning Farm" with five barnyard finger puppets (and their respective colorful barns) for little hands to develop motor skills and little minds to begin to master some math.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is an amazing learning tool that I highly recommend buying. I am a therapist for kids with autism. My materials get a lot of use from different kiddos, so I can attest from my experience that they are very durable and excellent quality. Many of my younger clients are barely starting to speak. This product has motivated them to make animal noises, label animals, count numbers, label colors, request for more, point at the barn they want to open, ask for help to open and close the barns, and sing along to songs with me! There are so many fun and different ways to play with them to target different goals! The animals and barns are so cute! Definitely purchase this product!" —Katie

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95.

    11. A personalized superhero cape to get your kids into cosplay while encouraging them to create their own characters and stories. Plus, who doesn't look great in a cape?

    Capes and More / Etsy

    Select a cape and add on options like a mask, wristbands, and a belt and then personalize it by choosing the cape color, shape and shape color, and letter and letter color.

    Capes and More is an Etsy shop founded in 2014 that makes original superhero capes for kids and adults.

    Promising review: "We love this cape! I got this for my 15-month-old because she loves taking my dish towels and trying to put them on as capes. The cape is a little big for her yet lengthwise, but she still loves it! :) and it came so fast!" —Katelyn Maxson

    Get it from Capes and More on Etsy for $16+.

    12. A Manhattan Toy wooden pony activity center with flapping ears, gliders, spinning dials, bead runs, a shape sorter, and letter recognition which makes total horse sense for your toddler.

    Promising review: "This keeps my son entertained for quite a while. Good for developing motor skills. It also looks like a Dala horse, which is a symbol of our Swedish heritage. Very cute and fun toy." —Larissa

    Get it from Amazon for $63.68.

    3+ Years Old

    13. A three-chord Loog Mini acoustic guitar so you can start teaching your little punk kid the entire Ramones catalog. Comes with flashcards with chord diagrams and full access to the Loog Guitar app. Hey! Ho! Let's go!

    Promising review: "My daughter and I learning how to play the guitar together. Even if we don't become rock stars the quality time we are spending together is all the justification I needed to make the purchase. The strings are perfect for her little fingers." —JSpriggins

    Get it from Amazon for $79 (available in five colors).

    14. A Little Tikes Rescue Tales "Scrub 'n Groom" bathtub playset that really works! Kids can practice giving the plush Chocolate Lab an actual bath (with water) and a working shower head. Best of all? No wet dog smell!

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a perfect gift! Larger than expected! Rate this a 10!" —Karen Zuendel

    Get it from Amazon for $29.82.

    15. A pair of "Fly-noculars" (that's a plane + binoculars) so kids can explore the great outdoors up close (but, you know, from far away). And if it gets too hot out, the Fly-noculars turn into a personal fan. Bonus: personalize the plane with different sets of included stickers.

    iPlay iLearn Toys

    Promising review: "Firstly, there's so much to this toy, I've never seen anything like it! It has these cute binoculars to look through to explore your surroundings. Then it's also a super cute toy airplane (Amelia Earhart is my daughter's favorite) and its propellers double as a handheld fan! My daughter, who is 2, absolutely loves this thing and has been carrying it around with her everywhere (the included lanyard is a nice touch)." —dolaiye

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in two colors).

    16. An "itsy pack" of Clixo building toys combining origami, magnets, and building blocks for a completely new and unique way for kids to create and play.

    Clixo

    When I first discovered Clixo I thought, "Wow, that's something I haven't seen before. I bet these will be different than other building toys." Not only are they different, but they're super fun and satisfying to play with (that click the magnetic parts makes just sounds and feels so good). Maybe when I'm done "testing" them out, I'll actually let my kid take a shot at playing with them.

    Get it from Clixo for $29.99 (available in three colors).

    17. An Educational Insights "Design & Drill Bolt Buddies" rocket, because there's no better way to get kids into STEM than by building a spaceship for an astronaut and his puppy pal and using the eco-friendly packaging as a play set.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "My 3-year-old son had an old toy drill that recently stopped working and he asked me for a new one. This little set caught my eye, so I bought it and he loves it! I love that they put a little window on the side of the drill to show the gears inside spinning. Nice touch to show curious minds how these things work internally. Fits little hands perfectly and he’s been assembling and disassembling this rocket at least a couple of times a day since we got it! The little astronaut characters are cute and can lock into spots inside the rocket (like Lego pieces). Another nice touch is that the box that the set comes in doubles as a space backdrop to play with or display on a bookshelf or table." —CK

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

    18. A 22-piece shaking, tapping, beating, and blowing wooden instrument set to serve as your toddler's very own beat-lab, just as long as they don't actually beat anyone with their new musical toys.

    A colorful array of wooden instruments
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I saw these and immediately thought: I cannot wait to buy this for my nephew and friend's kid because it's going to absolutely drive the parents insane. Unspoken rule of parenthood right? You buy other kids the stuff you know will make a ton of noise. I was not let down. It was delivered to my sister today and shortly after arrival I received the long-anticipated text, 'Did you send these devil tools?' Yes, sister, yes I did. I will most definitely be ordering another set for my friend's kid in a couple of weeks!" —Amanda Wiley

    Get it from Amazon for $30.59.

    19. A handmade engraved child play workbench for teaching twisting, sawing, and screwing skills with five toy screws and nuts, three toy nails, five toy tools, and more. The kids will be watching This Old House in no time!

    Holly And Fred is an Etsy shop established in 2017 and based in Leicester, United Kingdom and "All of our products are designed or hand-personalized."

    Promising review: "My daughter loves this workbench. She's about to turn 3 and this is the perfect size for her. So happy that it was packed safely and made it all the way to California." —Thrista Aguilar

    Get it from Holly And Fred on Etsy for $82.53.

    20. A FurReal "Moodwings" baby dragon interactive pet toy with flapping wings and eyes and a tummy that changes color depending on its mood. So yes, this dragon is indeed a mood.

    Amazon

    Recently got a chance to play with this little beast and I think it's going to end up being my kid's favorite holiday gift this year. When the dragon's eyes change color (blue, green, red, yellow) its mood changes accordingly (sleepy, hungry, cranky, happy). It's a great way for kids to start to pick up on emotional cues (this dragon trains them!) Plus the wing-flapping is beyond cute.

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99.

    21. A built-to-last, no lead, no plastic, nontoxic, 14-piece magnetic wooden block set for kids to create all manner of creatures and objects that will serve as a soft introduction to all types of modern art.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "The wood is excellent quality and very nice and smooth. Magnets are strong enough but not too strong. I actually like that the magnets are not on every single side because it teaches the kids to use their brains and troubleshoot. I do wish they were a little more affordable so we could get a large set, but understand why. The quality is definitely there. Thank you for providing a fun, toxic-free toy!" —Dorothea Gerber

    Get it from Amazon for $35+ (available in four different sets).

    22. An Anna or an Elsa Frozen 2 musical adventure singing doll that belts out "Some Things Never Change" and "Show Yourself," respectively. At least you can give the TV a rest (but not your ears).

    Amazon

    Promising reviews: "Daughter absolutely loves it! It's a beautiful doll, a lovely dress, and a nice singing clip from the film. Worth the wait for all those (like us) who had been holding out for this version of Elsa." —arzneitrank

    "I was very upset when I first purchased this because it had just a short song sample. I tested it in the box before giving it to my niece for her birthday and was furious when there was only a 5-second song sample...turns out there is a switch on the back for demo mode." —JF

    Get Anna for $19.88 and Elsa for $19.88 from Amazon.

    23. And a Play-Doh "Kitchen Creations Candy Delight" playset, because you can't have all that Play-Doh and not have the proper instruments to turn it into different types of sweet clay-based confections.

    Get it from Amazon for $18.82.

    24. A set of Magna-Tiles for recreating the works of children's author Eric Carle while building 3D versions of beloved characters like "The Very Hungry Caterpillar."

    Target, Targe

    If you're a parent, chances are there is an Eric Carle book in your child's library, be it "The Grouchy Ladybug" or "The Very Busy Spider" or a personal favorite of mine, "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?" I introduced the "Papa Please Get the Moon For Me" set to my 1-year-old and he's totally into it. Well, he's totally into destroying whatever I build with it. As an added bonus, the Magna-Tiles kind of feel and sound like cassettes, which will immediately take you back to the days of your youth making mixtapes.

    Get it from Target for $34.99

    25. A children's play tent with options for a floor mat, pillows, and flags, because when they're this young, camping indoors can be a much easier proposition than the not-so-great outdoors.

    Baby Smile Co

    Baby Smile Co is an Etsy shop established in 2017 based in Dnipro, Ukraine specializing in soft things for little ones like blankets, pillows, mats, and tiny tents.

    Promising review: "Beautiful Teepee just as described. Great communication, dispatched very quickly. So glad I decided to choose this product for my grandsons they love it. The extra accessories such as flags pompoms and cushions made it great value for money compared to others on the market. Would highly recommend. Thank you." —Heather

    Get it from Baby Smile Co on Etsy for $86.40.

    5+ Years Old

    26. An Operation Pet Scan board game just like the classic version, except this time kids play as a veterinarian trying to remove the things that Rex-Ray shouldn't have eaten. Remove a piece successfully and Rex will "fart or bark in relief." So, there's that added element too.

    Promising review: "Makes for a great gift idea for any young child. We purchased this for our 5-year-old granddaughter. She absolutely loves to be able to share it with her little sister." —4 oclocks

    Get it from Amazon for $15.97.

    27. A Buddha Board for painting rich, inky, water-based images onto a "canvas" that will slowly fade as the water evaporates. We don't know art but we know it's not messy.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Amazing item! All children should learn the skill of letting go from an early age. The lesson is valuable and extremely profound! The earlier one learns the better! Thank you for creating such a deep tool to continuously practice the art... So grateful!" —Answers

    Get it from Amazon for $34.95.

    28. An Uno "Nothin’ But Paper" card game made from fully recyclable materials (for the first time ever). Now kids can get as much enjoyment from helping Mother Earth as they do from dropping a Wild Draw Four card whenever they play.

    Amazon

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99.

    29. A Learning Resources Botley The Coding Robot 2.0 activity set, because it's never too early to get the kids into coding. Botley can be programmed to follow a sequence of up to 150 steps including following plotted courses and avoiding obstacles. The best part, it's all screen-free!

    Two child models playing with wheeled blue robot
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I purchased this toy for my daughter who just turned 5. She absolutely loves playing with Botley and the coding is very straightforward and easy for her to understand. She loves that she is able to program different codes to turn Botley into a frog, train, ghost, and more. I love that she is able to learn how to program things in a sequence and use if/then logic when playing. This is a great toy for children who love to learn about technology, and I love that it's a screen-free activity that encourages children to use their thinking cap and imagination during playtime!" —Southern Made Simple

    Get it from Amazon for $78.39.

    30. A Grouch Couch game to teach children the importance of never losing the remote control! But seriously, they're going to love this seat (get it, love seat!).

    Two child models playing with red plastic couch game
    Amazon

    Here's how to play: Roll the dice and then feed the couch the number of treats that come up. Press the remote and the couch will either grumble and ignore the treats or eat up what you've left. If the couch is "happy" then it will spit out rewards like coins, lost socks, remotes, and even a cat.

    Promising review: "My 3- and 6-year-old love playing this together! It’s cute and they think it’s hilarious. It’s a good game to help my three-year-old learn to count and follow the rules of a game while keeping him engaged." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    8+ Years Old

    31. A LittleBits Star Wars Droid inventor kit for teaching would-be Jedi the ways of coding with 22+ app-based missions. And yes, this is the droid you're looking for.

    Child model building an R2-D2 droid kit
    Amazon

    Requires 9V battery

    Promising review: "I bought this kit for my 8-year-old who is a huge Star Wars fan and enjoys building things — he loves it! The packaging and parts are all high quality, and the LittleBits Droid app was easy to download on the iPad — he used the video instructions to build the droid and a panel of controls for driving it around the house, making funny R2D2 sounds, recording his own voice onto the droid, etc. Building the circuit and R2D2 shell with the app kept him engaged — the only thing he asked for help with was mounting and removing the Motor bit, which was actually quite tight and required some force to click into place and to remove — this could be looser. He completed several different droid “missions" — his favorite one so far was driving the droid with his hand using the “the force” — actually really cool!" —I.B

    Get it from Amazon for $80.00.

    32. A 360-degree-rotating 3-in-1 LED globe, constellation map, and night light to illuminate your child about not only the world they live in but the stars in the heavens above. And if that gets way too scary (or deep) that night-light will sure come in handy too.

    A reviewer's split image photo of the globe in world map form and lit up in constellation mode
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "This is a wonderful globe. I bought this for my nephew and this is a fun way to give him the basics. He enjoys learning countries and he loves the night-light. The constellations are pretty cool in the dark. The size is perfect and the quality is amazing. The countries and regions are clear and they are easy to read. The base is strong and stable. It doesn't tip when spinning. The guidebook has more detailed information about the constellations and it's location. This globe definitely captured my nephew's attention and he is learning with interest. Overall, this is a perfect globe and can't go wrong with it." —Lucky10z

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99.

    33. A Grounded for Life Family party game (by the makers of What Do You Meme?) where the player who makes the funniest (or most outrageous) sentence combination wins. Think of it as a kid-friendly Apples To Apples.

    What Do You Meme?, Amazon

    Promising review: "The game is super easy to learn. Fun to play with our 9- and 10-year-old. It’s like Cards Against Humanity for kids/families." —Todd S.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.
