These toys seem like they would be great for my kids to play with. I remember that I used to love playing with cardboard blocks. They were fun because I should use them to build a fort or a tower that’s any size that I want it to be. My kids have great imaginations, so this seems like a great toy for them that will let their imaginations run wild with all of the things they would build. Thanks for posting this!
“I love puppets. They’re a personification of this really cool-looking thing that seems to talk and engage with them. How fun is that?” Dr. Golinkoff says. “It’s great because it’s another persona that speaks and allows them to engage.” Here’s a set of animals and family members to elevate the bedtime story — and further develop your child’s language-acquisition skills and imagination.

Monopoly Fortnite Edition is designed for teens. In this version of the game you battle your opponents and avoid the storm. Just like the videogame, it’s all about survival — not what you own. The game features battles and loot chests and is inspired by the videogame. It’s a fun new spin on the classic game of Monopoly. Will you be the last player standing?!
Be on the lookout for toys that play music so you can soothe your little one while teaching them new tunes, toys that encourage sitting up so they can master tummy time, and textured toys that double as safe teethers. These 14 fun and educational infant toys will keep your little one occupied and engaged to the point that they won't want to put them down.
The best infant toys are the classics, like a baby gym activity center than can be placed on your floor.

Recommended for newborns up to 6 months. ($90; potterybarnkids.com)
Freddie the Firefly has a lot to offer baby. He includes a rattling ball, clacker, mirror, and a plastic ladybug for teething. Multiple fabrics were used in the creation of this toy to increase touch awareness. Baby can learn colors, sounds, shapes while playing with Freddie and his many accessories.

Introduce your baby to the wonders of nature early with this three-piece wooden puzzle. The toy will also introduce your child to shapes (triangle, circle and rectangle), and matching pictures underneath will help your baby recognize where each piece should go. The plywood pieces are made with a non-toxic, water-based finish, according to P'kolino. (Recommended ages: 6+ months)


A toddler will start to achieve milestones in the realm of creativity as well. They’ll start to understand simple fantasy stories and how to develop and use their own creativity for pretend play. During this period, since the imagination becomes very active, it is crucial that the toddler learns how to separate fantasy from reality and an issue with nightmares might develop as well. In response, if your toddler achieves the milestone of simple problem solving and learning what is and isn’t correct, the issue shouldn’t expand into something more.
Love laser tag? Then you’ll love the Nerf Laser Ops Pro. This blaster boots up quickly and it’s very easy to use right out of the box. Although the app is not required, it does enhance your gameplay by allowing players to level-up the blaster to make it stronger, better defense, check the scoreboard and more. Using the laser guns without the app is great for light-hearted fun. But if you’re competitive and want to kick someone’s tail, you’ll want to get into the app.
Baby can mouth the cups, bang the cups on the floor or table, bang two cups together, put them on her head, cover her eyes with cups to play peek-a-boo, nest them together, stack them, roll them, pretend to drink from them, hide toys under them, put toys in them, shout into them and more. With the drum, baby bangs the drum and it says a letter. Baby bangs with two hands and it says a letter. Baby pushes his face into the top of the drum in an attempt to bite it - it says a letter. Baby bangs hard - it says a letter. Baby bangs soft - it says a letter. Baby bangs it with a toy hammer - it says a letter. I think you get the point that this toy isn't very responsive to baby's discovery and exploration. Baby can't put anything in it or under it, stack it on top of anything else, roll it, or take it apart. This toy is made for one thing only - banging - and it is effectively a giant button. 

A: This choice is entirely up to you as a parent or guardian; teething gels don’t alter or affect a toy’s effectiveness. If you are already open to using teething gels, then you can apply a small amount to the surface of the toy or even directly to the gums. However, if you are concerned about your baby’s exposure to harsh or toxic chemicals, you may want to avoid teething gels altogether as some do contain ingredients, which while proven to relieve pain and swelling, can also cause damaging effects to the liver and kidneys.


The Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes Musical Toy is great because it provides baby with seven classical music tunes (including Mozart, Vivaldi, Chopin, and Rossini) at the touch of a button, but there’s more to love about this toy than just the tunes. Baby’s senses will be delighted as she watches the lights dance with each note and as she learns to grip the toy with its easy-to-hold (and adorable) giraffe sidebar.

Learning new words has never been more fun. Guided by pals Turtle, Tiger and Money, toddlers can broaden their vocabulary by touching the words on the pages to hear them spoken aloud, along with exciting sound effects and fun facts. Bonus: The words and songs can be heard in both English and Spanish, making it one of the best toddler Christmas gifts for bilingual families.


Gift the toddler on your list a playset with a paleontological twist. The Playful Dino features bead mazes, spinning gears, swirly eyes and other fiddly bits that will keep the 1-and-up set engrossed. Toddlers will develop fine-motor skills and learn about cause-and-effect as they manipulate the playset's wooden features — and exhausted parents can celebrate the lack of loud noises or strobe-light effects.
Why we love it: It's very easy for even small babies to grab and is lovely and soft to hold. 'Sophia could give it a good squeeze and hold on to it well,' says our baby tester's mum. 'She loves the mirror side and prefers holding it where she can see that. As she gets older, it will be an ideal toy to do throwing and catching with as it's soft but big enough for her to grab on to. I think she will enjoy it for a while to come!'
Featuring over 60 characters, 8-player battles, online battles and more, get ready to battle with Mario, Link and your other favorite Smash Bros. characters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Its robust character roster includes everyone from past games plus Daisy, Ridley, and Inklings plus a variety of stages and graphical improvements to make this the best Smash Bros. to date. This is likely to be the biggest hit title for Switch this year. The game features mild animated violence, but it’s tame compared to other similar games. It makes the perfect gift for any Smash fan.
This is another area where your pediatrician’s input may be needed. Depending on your baby’s overall health, he or she may recommend medical-grade silicone, which has the advantage of being the same silicone used in hospitals. Your pediatrician may also recommend specific sterilizing techniques since germ control is just as important as the grade of material.

Love escape room challenges? Then you’ll love Escape Room In A Box: The Werewolf Experiment. Players will be challenged to solve puzzles and find codes to escape the room. There’s an interesting backstory: Your party of players have to figure out a way to access the antidote within an hour or you’ll all turn into werewolves. What’s cool? It’s even compatible with your Alexa-enabled speaker. You can ask Alexa for hints and time updates as you try to escape the virtual room. Will you make it out alive?!
A toy that attaches easily to your child’s stroller is a genius way to keep your kid occupied and happy while out and about. The Skip Hop Silver Lining Cloud Rattle Moon Stroller Toy is great because kids love the neon rattle beads that stimulate their auditory and visual senses, as well as the textured, cloud-shaped teether. This toy is recommended for kids zero and up.
As you keep up with tummy time, you'll see baby holding his head higher and steadier. By the end of month three, he may be able to raise his shoulders and upper chest. He'll probably roll a few times accidentally if he turns his head too far, but before long he'll doing it intentionally. (Want to get some rolling practice in? Place baby in a side-lying position.) You may also notice baby kicking a bunch while lying on his back, which helps strengthen the belly muscles needed to eventually roll over. Another fun development? Baby may start to intentionally reach for and grasp toys—but knowing how to let go of objects hasn’t set in yet. Keep in mind that babies at this stage are relying on their senses (sight, hearing, touch and smell) to navigate around the new world around them, so offer up some healthy stimulation.

Toddlers love the Easy Score Basketball set. It’s one of the best-selling basketball sets. The set features a basketball hoop with three junior-sized balls. The best part? The hoop can be adjusted to grow with your child from two to four feet. The basketball rim is oversized to build confidence in your toddler. Some toddlers may even be able to dunk the ball. It’s a super fun game building eye-hand coordination as well as social and motor development skills. It’s slam dunk fun!
For generations children have experienced the wonder of the Cozy Coupe. It is one of the original ride-on toys and has stood the test of time. Kids have travelled on a variety of exciting adventures with their Cozy Coupe. Cool features include an ignition switch plus an opening and closing gas cap. The front wheels spin a full 360-degrees and it features a high back seat, supporting toddlers. Now the floor of the car is removable and there is a convenient handle for parent’s to control the vehicle more easily. Discover the classic Cozy Coupe that started it all!
Lego Marvel Superheroes 2 is a faithful recreation of the Marvel comic brand. The graphics, gameplay, presentation, and characters all look awesome. TT really nailed the character mini-figs and they have new abilities. It really delivers a great roster and the story is genuinely thrilling. It will also feature fun battle arenas. The cool thing is not only can you play with any character you’ve unlocked, but you can also use custom characters. It’s a kid-friendly package that’s almost hard to resist.
To help little ones get their legs and hands moving, the Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Kick & Play Piano is a popular choice. This toy has been around for years, taking on different forms and color combinations. The latest version is as versatile as ever, with the ability to tie it onto baby’s crib, place it flat on the floor, or use the built-in stand to prop it up when baby begins to sit and play. Happy moms and dads find that this toy can keep their little one entertained safely and provide much-needed mental stimulation.
Christmas toys that encourage imaginary play are always a smart bet—and this cute talking cash register is just the thing for little cashiers to ring up their customers. It has all the features of the real thing, from a barcode scanner that beeps and flashes to a scale that plays a tune as kids load it up with pretend product. It even offers a quiz mode that tests kids on their numbers, letters, math skills and more.
Considering these toys are for babies that will get everything dirty with food, spit-up, and what-not, their toys must be easy to clean. Machine washing for the toys with fabrics is a must because otherwise with just spot cleaning, stains will never go away. Most of the toys listed can be cleaned by machine washing or by simply wiping the hard surface off with baby-safe cleansers.

For the most part, Dr. Cornett says, therapists try to avoid pop-culture toys. Why? Big names immediately set the parameters of play for the kid, thus infringing on imagination. “Every kid is going to pretty much play with Buzz Lightyear in the same way. A generic superhero is much better.” It turns out escaping the world of branded merch is nearly impossible. Whatever happened to the unlogo’d tight-wearing action figures of yore? They’re gone.  We like Nina Warriors (Set of Four) from Child Therapy Toys, which can be pretty much any sort of superhero you want them to be.
The big kids have the Apple Watch and Fitbit – so where does that leave kids? Featuring a new sleek and stylish design, kids can get in on the smartwatch action with the Vtech Kidizoom Smartwatch DX2. In addition to telling time, it shoots photos and captures video. The watch features two cameras for photos and selfies. It features a fun monster-catching game a la Pokemon Go. Kids can play fun games and activities.

The Grand Department Store is central to the Calico Critters’ new series. Its design allows kids to customize the layout by moving around the terrace, balconies, windows and awnings. Kids can let their critters enter the store via the revolving tower doors and explore the various levels with the elevator. This set includes one Stella Hopscotch Rabbit figure to bring your imaginative storytelling adventures to life.
A: Babies drool, this is unavoidable. If you find with these toys, your baby is drooling more excessively than before, it’s because the extra stimulation causes more salivation. Keeping a burp rag or extra cloth on hand will help you with the clean-up. Consider also switching toys out regularly as this can help minimize drooling. Differing textures will provide stimulation to different areas of the mouth and gums, helping to break the amount of occurring salivation.
Water play adds another splash of science. As John Cerio, PhD, a professor of school psychology at Alfred University, in Alfred, New York, points out, kids are capable of learning a difficult concept on a very basic level. If you pour water from one container into a different-shaped container, you still have the same amount of water. Without hands-on play, most kids would tell you that the taller container must hold more.
The Xbox One is home to solid first-party exclusives like Halo, Forza, Gears of War and more! It’s also home to one of the best online multiplayer experiences with Xbox Live. The console is a powerhouse delivering amazing HD graphics and immersive gameplay experiences. A new Netflix-like platform will allow you to play at least 100 titles from spanning many of Xbox’s top titles.

Interactive lights and sounds elevate your experience. The set comes with a moving truck and furniture to decorate your house.
Little kids can get a smart home of their own. Like other Laugh & Learn products, it is designed to grow with your child. As babies crawl though the door, they enter a world of learning. There are so many different activities for baby to explore. Not only can they play pretend kitchen, but babies will learn numbers, shapes, weather, and more. The pretend fridge is actually a cleverly designed shape sorter. It’s just like Mommy and Daddy’s smart home.

Inspired by the Unikitty show, LEGO has launched a dream kit called the Unikingdom Creative Brick Box. With over 400 pieces, fans can create simple builds.

Spider-Man is one of the most beloved superheroes. This Marvel Spider-Man Titan Hero Series action figure is primed and ready for action! It’s a highly detailed 12-inch figure capturing the essence of Spider-Man. He features multiple points of articulation for fantastic poses and imaginative storytelling adventures. Are you ready for thrilling adventures?
Interactive features include: Open and close refrigerator and oven with lights and phrases, whoosh sound when the toilet seat is lifted, a music player with four fun songs, peek-a-boo kitty or pop-up weather report and an alarm clock to help Emma wake up. When it’s time to pack up, all of the pieces fit inside the dollhouse that can be closed and latched for secure storage. An easy-carry handle makes this house ready for on-the-go fun.
This is a gift that will last your baby through teen years and possibly beyond. You can set it up to be on an automatic sensor to come on with the darkness and go off with the light. The sound isn’t loud, but it will be a nice soft addition to the nursery to drown out the noise from outside the room. Plus, the lights can spin (or not) to give baby something to watch as he dozes off.

At a loss for what to buy or overwhelmed with too many choices? Consider buying a subscription to a toy rental service, like Sparkbox Toys that will deliver educational toys to your home, based on your child's age level and interests. Love the toy, pay a portion of the retail price and keep it. Or return all the toys in the box with pre-paid postage and receive a new box of toys the following month.
This toy is for a big baby who is steady on his feet and able to hold a sitting posture. They even recommend the ages of 3 to 8 for its use. But if you are providing direct involvement with baby, this can provide a lot of fun for him and he’ll age into it nicely. It requires no pushing or batteries; its mechanical operation will allow your baby (or you, until baby can figure it out on his own) to operate this car by simply turning the wheel. And it’s durable enough that the manufacturer even suggests the parent hop on to try it out themselves.
This vintage-inspired, all-sustainable-wood camper play set comes with four peg people and a pet dog ready to hit the road — or the front hall. “One-year-olds are just figuring out how they can influence the world around them, so they love putting things into containers and taking them out,” says Lytle. “This really speaks to that urge. It’s also nice that it’s a bus because a child that young is more likely to have been in a car or bus than a boat or plane, so this is more relatable.”

Bring your Rusty Rivets adventures to life with this authentic replica of Tigerbot from the TV show. With the Build Me Rivet System, kids can easily build their very own Tigerbot. Pull back on its silver fur and watch in amazement as his eyes light up, jaws open, and he lets out a roar to bring your storytelling to life. What’s cool? The pieces are compatible with other sets in the line for whole new creative building possibilities.
This slide is currently sitting in the middle of my living room.  I bought it about a month ago in anticipating of cold temperatures and it is used about a zillion times throughout the day by all three of my children (ages 7, 5, and 21 months)…despite the fact that it was purchased for the youngest.  My only complaint is that it is advertising as “folding”, but really that just means you have to take it apart.  It doesn’t actually fold.  But it is easy enough to move to another room or even outside to slide in the leaves!  :)
Stacking cups may look simple, but they offer baby a chance to use vision, touch and the pressure & stretch sense (proprioception) to perceive subtle differences in sizes - a valuable sensory processing skill. Successfully learning to perceive these differences results in the ability to stack, nest and sort the cups as baby gets older. One of the key features of sensory play is that it promotes a skilled or purposeful response from your child. The drum lights up and makes sounds in a cause and effect fashion but not in a way that is responsive to your child's different purposeful actions.
Coley recommends starting tummy time in the early weeks of life, since the earlier you start, the better baby tends to tolerate it—try placing a receiving blanket on a flat, firm surface or a loved one's chest or lap. "Baby won't yet lift his head to look ahead, but you might see him briefly lift his head with it turned to the side or remain cheek-down,” Coley says. “This is normal and beneficial positioning for a very young infant." Although he won't yet track moving objects, baby may turn his head to find your face or a high-contrast black and white object placed close (about 8 to 12 inches) to his eyes. While on his back, he may also slowly turn toward the sound of a familiar voice or a shaking rattle.
Kids will be amazed at how cool science can be with this fun science kit from Scientific Explorer. Your little chemist will learn the differences between acids and bases, as s/he conducts 11 different mind-blowing science activities. With help of a parent, s/he will mix chemicals to create everything from a fizzing volcano to jiggly crystals. Are you ready to be blown away with science?
Now kids can learn to code screen-free with the Ozobit Coding Robot. To begin, you can start coding with markers and stickers. This little guy is full of creativity. Don’t let his little size fool you! For more advanced coding, you’ll want to use either a tablet or computer. Kids will love tinkering with the code and seeing what results their code generates. It’s a fantastic STEM kit that makes learning coding fun.
From baby girl Christmas gifts to toddler boy birthday presents, you can’t go wrong with books. But tiny hands get curious and soon they are anxious to “help” turn those fragile pages. Bring on the Indestructible Nursery Rhyme Book Set, which includes Frere Jacques
, Hickory Dickory Dock
, Old MacDonald Had a Farm
, Mary Had a Little Lamb and Humpty Dumpty! This set of five indestructible and wordless books are perfectly prepared to withstand baby’s toughest battles and claim to be baby-proof, chew-proof, drool-proof and rip-proof. Pretty impressive, seeing as the pages feel like paper. Bonus: These baby and toddler books can even go in the washer (insert mic drop). ($28; uncommongoods.com)
