Let’s face it: the holidays are coming. Trying to find toddler gifts for Christmas can be a challenge.
Finding great toddler gifts for Christmas will be more complicated this year since everyone is still shopping online.
I’m excited about the gifts to get my 21-month-old this year because he is walking, starting to talk and being active.
There were so many toys that I wanted to get him last year that I could get him this year, and I can’t wait for Christmas.
Last year, most of the toys we got him were based on his initial interest, not educational value.
Now that we are more experienced with parenting and understand the purpose of toys, we are focused on getting toys that do one of the following:
- Help build language
- Refine motor skills
- Provide fun entertainment
- Reinforce what he is learning in daycare, including sharing, counting, and basic understanding of concepts.
This year’s toys will provide an outstanding balance of education, fun, and something we can all do with my young toddler.
Here are some great toddler gifts for Christmas to consider this year.
