This 20 piece playful ice cream cart encourages imaginative play in the tastiest way.

Lights, sounds, and music also encourage fun interactive play while being able to push the cart around building those gross motor skills. This toy is perfect for toddlers ages 2-5.

This classic Little Tikes ride-on car has been around for 50 years and is still one of our favorites. Its removable floorboard allows your toddler to grow and still use this toy for many years. Mom, Dad, or Grandparents can push younger children while they sit inside the car. There’s a comfortable handle on the roof that allows for maneuverability. As your tot grows, remove the floorboard and they have complete control as the fun begins!
There’s a lot of storage for cups in the trunk, which makes it great for longer rides. This is one of my favorite toddler boy Christmas gifts. My son had one and we used it for years! The key, horn, and gas cap are great interactive features. This ride-on toy is recommended for ages 18 months – 5 years old. No batteries required for this toy.
This interactive dump truck was one of my son’s favorite toys, making it one of the top toddler boy Christmas gifts. It has 3 interactive buttons that play melodies, phrases, and colors that encourage counting in a really fun way. The child drops the brightly colored plastic rocks into the top of the dump truck and then they fall out of the back as it counts along. There’s also a pull string, a working lever to unload the rocks, and a movable hinge.
This toy is recommended for ages 6 – 36 months old and requires 2 AAA batteries. It does come with demo batteries but they’ll need to be replaced for long-term play. Check out these rechargeable ones from Amazon.
This twist on a classic shape sorter is so much fun for little kids to learn about animals, shapes, and numbers while drumming away to lights and tunes.
This one is fun because when each shape is dropped into the correct hole, the corresponding animal along with numbers is introduced with musical sounds. The lid is removable to empty the shapes for endless playtime. This fun little drum enhances motor skills by learning to sort and push the shapes through the holes. Recommended for ages 6- 36 months and requires 2 AAA batteries. It does come with demo batteries but they’ll need to be replaced for long-term play. Check out these rechargeable ones from Amazon.
This is another classic toy that uses music to enhance learning play. The convenient handle allows for portability and fun in your home or car. Point the middle arrow to a picture, pull the lever, and you learn the animal and the sounds it makes. If you point the handle to the question mark, there are quiz questions. Point it to the music note and hear songs about the animals. Easily flip the 2 pages to learn about different animals. This toy is recommended for toddlers ages 18 months and over.
This all-in-one baby nursery is great for toddlers who like to take special care of their baby dolls in this full-service center that includes a variety of care items for their special babies. This toy uses batteries and has to be assembled. This toy is recommended for ages 3 and up.
These Fisher-Price building blocks are the perfect size for little hands just learning to grab and build. We love the bright colors and ease of use. They easliy spark imagintive play while developing fine motor and thinking skills by learning to stack and play.
I always had multiple sets of these and stored them in a large bin that was easily accessible to my son so he could grab and play anytime. Check out these affordable 32 QT storage bins or these 20 QT storage bins on Amazon.
Another great toy that introduces letters, letter sounds, and animals all in one very fun, interactive toy. It plays Old MacDonald and the ABC song while your little one sits and spins the middle section.
