Toddler Gift Guide


Here is my Ultimate Gift Guide for One Year Olds - you can find the rest of the list HERE. I actually have all of these, or at least a version of them. (Wow that makes my kids seem a little spoiled lucky really fortunate)

ultimate gift guide for one year olds

#1 Fisher-Price Little People Fun Sounds Farm
This farm includes a chicken, Farmer Eddie, horse, cow and sheep and makes noises.



#2 VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels - Train Station Playset
The train talks when you press the button and has sayings every time you drive it over a 'smart point'
and all the sets are interchangeable

#3 Mega Blocks Ride On Caterpillar with Excavator
These ride on toys seem to be a big hit with one year olds. This one has realistic sounds, underseat storage and working shovel scoop.

gift ideas for one year old girls


#1 Fisher-Price Little People Disney Princess Songs Palace
Includes Cinderella and Snow White.
Each princess you place on the dance floor sings her own song from the movie and has a couple of her own phrases. You can buy sets separately which are great for small presents or stocking stuffers.

#2. Light N Sound Elsa Activity Ride-On


The pictured princess one is no longer available so you can purchase this similar Elsa one from Amazon.

#3 Leap Frog Shapes and Sharing Picnic Basket
14 piece picnic set, and music and sounds every time you open the basket lid. This is an inexpensive toy and is a hit with both my son and my 3 year old daughter still plays with it.

#4 Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Sweet Manners Tea Set



Buying gifts can be difficult sometimes and then you choose something that looks awesome only for the kids never to play with it. So with two children over two - a boy and a girl these were definitely there favourite most played with toys (and still are at three and five)

two year old gift guide


1. cash register $39.99 $18.84 + play money $11.39

2. KidKraft kitchen $141.99 + Stainless steel pots from Melissa and Doug

3. Princess ball house $34.99 + extra balls $45.95  $19.95

2. Kitchen $82.94 + plastic play food from Melissa and Doug $15.43



These gifts are great and I have a version of all of them in my house. I don't know what it is about playing store or cooking in kitchens but it appeals to all kids - and their friends all love these toys too! And this ball house is my son's house where he periodically lives in/ or just stores my lost iPhone in.
