Top Toys for Tots

Good gift giving ideas for the next shower or b-day party.

As I have mentioned before, I am a mom of two little ones. So I have some experience in trial and error when it comes to toys.

In keeping with the theme of my previous blog about baby showers, my classmate Nam suggested to write about what good toys would work as good gifts. Which is a very wise suggestion. I remember when my first child was a bit younger I bought these expensive items that were not durable and just turned out to be a chew toy for my teething toddler. In lieu of that, I learned to start reading reviews or comments that other parents made so one can get more bang for your buck.

So the following suggestions are toys my children currently own and have endured the test of time, also, my kids learned something from of these toys which is always a plus.

1. Fisher-Price Elephant Doodler

This is a nifty little writing tablet that is very durable and has helped my daughter in honing in her motors skills. Works great also for playing tic tack toe in the car for those long road trips.

2. Fisher-Price Little People Disney Princess Songs Palace Play Set

This play Set is for a little princess. Snow White and Cinderella are included but the rest of the Disney characters can be bought separately. The neat thing about this toy is that the princesses can be inserted into a pod and their catchphrases and most notable song drum out of the speakers.

3. LeapFrog Learn & Groove™ Musical Table

This is one of my favorite baby shower gifts. It’s a toy that grows with your child. It can be laid on the floor or attach legs for a walking toddler. It also helps your little one learn their abcs and grow their love for music. It’s also unisex! So in can be handed down to little brother or sister.

That concludes my top toys for gift giving. All of these are under the 50 dollar mark which is good for your wallet. But also they will give hours of entertainment to their future owner.
