Half the challenge of having little ones is finding the right gifts to put smiles on their dials. Year after year, as parents, we explore all the ways we can excite and impress our munchkins with presents that keep them happy and stimulated, but it can be super-easy to run out of ideas fast.
This year, we’re helping you get ahead with some gift-giving inspiration for your kids. Don’t let the next birthday or seasonal event sneak up on you; take these nifty ideas and put them into action the next time you hit the shopping centre.
You’ll thank yourself later, and your toddlers will be well and truly happy – we promise!
What should I get my toddler as a present?
First and Foremost – Hand In Hand Activity Kits
You can encourage your child to dive into the wonderful world of arts with Hand In Hand Activity Kits. These kids’ craft kits are suitable for toddlers from as early as 18 months of age and give them a reason to get creative (and away from screens, too).
Our goodies have been curated with young children up to six-years-old in mind. Give your kids the perfect start to their early education while also engaging them in things that are fun for the whole family to be involved in.
Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Learning Kitchen
Little chefs can cook up lots of exciting role-play scenarios with the Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Learning Kitchen. With two sides to choose from – a refrigerator and an oven they can open and close – there are a working light switch and a variety of songs, sounds, tunes, and phrases (in English and Spanish!). Your toddler will be busy as can be with this pretend playset!
Little Tikes Cozy Coupe
This ride-on toy is an absolute classic. Toddlers love the coupe’s elegant design and easy manoeuvrability. Perfect indoors or out, the Cozy Coupe encourages active play, imagination, and the development of large motor skills.
Think LEGO but bigger. This crowd-favourite has been a long-standing tradition for toddler and child-appropriate gifts. Offering the ability for little ones to experiment and build away at their heart’s content, there’s plenty for children to do with these simple blocks. Best of all, their larger design makes them easy to grip and means they aren’t a choking hazard.
Just One You Personalised Cookie Monster Set
If your child (or the lucky little one the gift is for) is a big fan of Sesame Street, then this one’s a definite winner. This set includes a book with their name on it and a cuddly toy of Cookie Monster himself.
