‘Tis the season to be merry…and spoil the little ones. There are so many options out there and that’s where we come in. Smarties, we’re here to make it your holiday shopping easier for you! Here are some of our favorite gifts for ages 0-2 years.
What a fun and constantly changing time for these kiddos. There are so many great toys that work for this group.
ABC Soft Blocks
These bright and bold plush blocks are easy for little hands to grab hold of. They also jingle when they are shook which provides extra entertainment for your little ones as they play with them.
This eye-catching toy is ideal for Smarty mamas one run. It’s easily attachable to cribs, strollers, car seats and more.
Blanket Teether Bear
This toy is great for infants. The body of the bear crinkles it while the bear’s feet and hands are good for teething babies.
Brilliant Bear Magnet Stack Up
This is a fun spin on a classic toy. My baby has been playing with her stacking rings for some time and has already proven to be a favorite. Plus these include magnets to help little ones along with the stacking.
<a Dancing Alligator
This fun and simple toy clacks and dances when pulled along.
Developmental Jiggle Caterpillar
This bright toy may look familiar, as it’s from The Hungry Caterpillar. This is a great toy to take along and attach to a stroller or car seat. It encourages infants to pull the bottom as it bounces back up.
ybike Pewi Ride-On
This toy is great for those infants getting their feet below them. The all-direction wheels help little ones take control of their path. It comes in three colors. It can be used as a walker or used as a ride-along.
Pound N’ Play
My baby is in a phase where she likes to pick up anything and bang it on a table or another surface. This toy would be ideal for her – I mean really, it comes with a hammer!
Music N’ Play Table
This wonderful table encourage babies to finesse their musical skills! With multiple instrumental options and activities, this should keep little ones busy for some time.
This has been a staple in our house since day one. Even when we travel, our sleep sheet comes with us to help our daughter calm down and go to sleep. Love, love, love it!
Radio Flyer Classic Walker Wagon
Awesome and perfect for picking up blocks or pushing the baby doll around in.
