Just having celebrated 2 of my little toddler, great-nephews Birthdays, brothers born 2 years apart, one 3 years old the other just 1 year old. Along with my other little great-nephew turning 1 in a couple of weeks I am able to determine my opinions on toddler toys to be practical and popular. Toddler toys for boys that I have also been given to be donated to my preschool classroom were toys that I had seen my little Nephews getting as Birthday gifts. The toys and games that I cherish from when my daughter was small are things that still are popular with little guys.
Books are gifts for toddlers that never stop giving, if they are well taken care of they can be passed down for generations. I have so many books that I cannot part with that I’ve had for years. The ones that are most popular with toddlers are the pop-up books. Pop-up hard cover, board books allow the story to come alive with beautiful images so that the child experiences an exciting adventure. Books make excellent gifts and kids love to be read to. Children should love books.
Scooters, Ride Toys
Step 2 makes a cute buggy/cart for toddlers that allow the toddler to be pushed around. These buggies cost about $59.99. My three toddler, great-nephews all have these and as they play near the water’s edge at our favorite place to go in the summer, we all know they are safe buckled in their buggies drifting in and out of the cool water and playing on the boat ramp at a private residence. With the adults pushing the buggies around the toddlers get to sit and view all the experiences that everyone else is enjoying. These buggies have a pretend stirring wheel, a long handle that can be removed for transporting, a cool compartment for snacks and little toys, and a horn to keep people out of their way.
Around Town Road Rug
These area rugs are a huge favorite with toddler boys; they love to pretend scooting around with little cars and trucks. Along with this great toddler Birthday gift you can add some cool wooden construction vehicles made by Melissa and Doug. These rugs can be found at most toy stores and even where rugs are sold. These toddler boy rugs sell for about $40.00.
Wooden Construction Vehicles
Construction vehicles by Melissa and Doug come with a cool storage unit that looks like a big garage. The dump truck, front end-loader and cement truck will get the town built in no time. With a 5 star rating these wooden vehicles are sturdy and versatile with a good handle for easy carrying .Every little town needs construction vehicles.
Interlocking foam puzzles
Puzzles are great Toddler gifts for any Birthday boy. Interlocking foam puzzles are easy to break down and store. They are also very easy to put together for toddler boys. The interlocking foam puzzles come in a cool town pattern, or the Alphabet. Toddler boys can pretend with their vehicles on the painted on town complete with roads and buildings. I have one that I have owned for over 10 years and I paid $30.00 for the 9 piece set. This set is still perfect; I can wash it off and store it easily in my crate.
