This is our BIG week here in Smartyland – our annual holiday toy gift guide. We divvy ’em up by ages and our Smarty bloggers get to work helping Santa figure out who gets what. To kick off our week of toy guides we’ve asked our “Baby Mama’s” Danielle and Jen V to compile a list of some of their family’s favorite toys from years past as well as what they’re getting their tiny tots ages 0-2 this year. Without further ado, let’s get to that shopping list!
For the boys:
Play-Doh Star Wars:
In a galaxy far, far away… his imagination is set free with these Star Wars sets!
Fisher Price Imaginext DC Super Friends Super Hero Flight City: Every little boy will want this awesome playset!
For the girls:
Baby Bibs: The cutest baby bibs on the planet. Look stylish AND clean.
Playful Pony: This Norse horse is packed with multiple play surfaces, bead runs, peg mazes and more. Teaches cause and effect learning while fostering fine motor skill development and hand-eye coordination.
Baby Stella: The award-winning Baby Stella® collection offers the perfect first soft doll that inspires creative role play in little ones. Each soft doll has a life-like belly button, toes and plump tummies. Teaches fine motor skills, responsibility, nurturing and caring.
The transition to a big girl/big boy bed is one of the most talked about changes among toddler moms. We bribed our little one by telling her she could sleep in ANY princess dress – but she couldn’t get out of bed. That was the princess rule. Well, whimsy tails has taken this to a whole new level! Let them slip into a mermaid or shark tail for the night! Perfect solution and fun gift! Plus, they even have them for their dolls. Does it get any better?
Toy vacuum: A toy Dyson Ball vacuum with real suction. It’s fun for them and keeps the house clean, too!
Junior Ball Run: Build a fun ball run with 15 brightly colored slot-together pieces and 5 assorted balls to delight. This will entertain your little ones and play dates for hours!
Highway Baby Scooter: Baby’s first scooter! This 2-in-1 push bike combination scooter adapts with the growth of the child. A simple one hand mechanism allows you to twist between the push-bike and scooter and without the need of tools. Brillz!
Wonder Walker Push n Pull Toy: There is nothing better than a wooden walker. This one is tricked out with five different activities to help with fine motor skills.
