Toy Gift Ideas For Spirited Toddler Boys

Toy Gift Ideas For Spirited Toddler Boys

Below are some of my spirited toddler boy’s favorite toys, most of which he got as gifts. In case it isn’t obvious, I prefer toys that have at least some sort of educational angle, and the grandparents are pretty good about respecting this when they buy gifts for my toddler. My thought is…Educational toys can be just as much fun as beeping, tooting, annoying non-educational toys, so he might as well learn something while he plays.

Of course, children are all different, especially the spirited ones. These are just some ideas if you need to get a gift for a toddler boy.

 

Ohio Art Classic Doodle Sketch
(Find out more or buy through Amazon…)

This toddler toy has entertained our son for countless hours on long car trips, when staying in hotels, etc. (Note: I put the stamps in a ziplock baggy and leave them at home.) It is a great way to let them get artistic without the mess and my son loves erasing the screen.

 

DUPLO My First Farm
(Find out more or buy through Amazon…)

Between gifts and CraigsList.com, I can’t believe how many DUPLO’s my toddler has. Each set is great by itself, but combining sets is when the real fun begins. They are wonderful for the imagination and building skills. My husband, step-son, and I were all big LEGO kids, and now we are raising the next generation. 🙂

 

Melissa & Doug Deluxe Latches Board
(Find out more or buy through Amazon…)

I first saw this at a friend’s house. They said, “It is a lot of fun, but now my daughter can escape ANYTHING.” I totally agree, but it is one of my toddler’s favorite toys. It is fantastic for fine motor skills and also introduces numbers and colors.

 

Fisher-Price Little People Animal Sounds Farm
(Find out more or buy through Amazon…)

Lord help me, but my toddler loves this farm. There are flaps to lift, doors to open, slides to slide, and just about everything makes a sound. We found it used, so ours does not have the pig or the goat…A fact which our toddler points out every time he plays with it. Jeese!

 

Melissa & Doug Deluxe Wooden 27-Piece Lacing Beads in a Box
(Find out more or buy through Amazon…)

I have to admit, I was a little surprised by how my toddler boy took to this lacing set. He loves stringing the blocks on the cords. I am not complaining though. It really is a wonderful activity for improving fine motor skills. It doesn’t hurt that there are numbers too, so we can work on counting at the same time.

 

Melissa & Doug Car Carrier
(Find out more or buy through Amazon…)

Have you noticed that I like Melissa & Doug? If you have a toddler boy who likes cars, you might want to combine this car carrier with a simple set of wooden blocks so that you can make buildings and garages. Just a tip…

 

LeapFrog: Fridge Farm Magnetic Animal Set
(Find out more or buy through Amazon…)

Honestly, we never owned this toy, but two of my friends have it on their refrigerators, and my toddler is enthralled with it every time we visit. It is great for teaching matching and animal sounds, but I like it because it entertains him in the kitchen which is where I always seem to need help distracting my toddler.

  1. Howdy this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if
    you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding experience so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  2. Many places such as your local photo lab or copy shop will copy your images on a CD – thbis is a good option if creating a photo collage.

  3. This post is really interesting. I have bookmarked it. Do you allow
    guest post on your page ? I can write hi quality posts for you.
