If you haven’t seen a holiday gift guide yet for babies and toddlers, here’s one for you! Better late than never, right!?!
It can be a little intimidating to purchase gifts for babies and toddlers these days. Society is so focused on nurturing early learning and development that moms spend hours trying to decide on the best set of stacking cups and peek-a-boo books for their little ones (I’m guilty of this too.) Let me save you the stress! Here’s your one-stop shopping guide for ages 0 to 2 from Junior Scholars.
Melissa and Doug Stacking Train An alternative to stacking cups, this wooden toy train encourages counting, color learning and pretend play.
The Hungry Caterpillar Peg Puzzle A favorite children’s story turned puzzle. What better way to begin learning numbers. This one is on Corbin and Lynley’s list!
Early Learning Centre Shape Sorting Bus Babies love shape sorters, and I love this creative take on such a classic toy. We have toy toy chest shape sorters, but I wish we had this bus with the heart shape. And look closely, there are little toys inside of the shapes. Ideal for stimulating the senses, problem solving and hand to eye coordination.
Portable Tea Set I would love to buy this one for Lynley. This toy is actually recommended for age 3 and up, but I don’t see why younger babies couldn’t play with it too. With adult supervision of course!
Galt Pop Up Toy This is a great toy to introduce to babies 6 months and up. These four lively, bouncing figures are designed to encourage hand/eye co-ordination and introduce color awareness.
LeapFrog My Discovery House Another gift on the twins’ list! This little house is just so cute and teaches opposites and daily routines. Children learn about opposite words as they open and close the fridge, push the doorbell, slide the window back and forth, push in the birds, flip the light switch and press the ducky.
Taggies Colour Caterpillar Corbin and Lynley have a couple of Taggies toys like this caterpillar, and it’s the best teether. Babies also learn colors and explore textures and patterns.
Galt Baby Puzzles A great tool for teaching matching and manual dexterity. And, what a fun toy to practice animal noises with too!
LeapFrog My Pal Scout and Violet Scout Connects to the computer so you can customize the music and personalize the learning with your child’s name, favorite food, animal and color. 14 activities introduce feelings, animals, counting and more. Corbin and Lynley received these dolls as birthday gifts just a couple of months ago, and I love them just as much as they do.
Galt Soft Book-Pets A must-have for all new babies beginning as early as birth! One of a range of 8-page fabric books featuring 8 colorful pictures, each with an activity or texture to explore. The soft padded pages are filled with crinkle material. Soft, safe and machine washable.
And while you’re shopping for those little bitties, grab something for yourself. You know you deserve it. SmartBuyGlasses features dozens of name brand and designer glasses and sunglasses. They’re offering some great Christmas deals. Go visit this page now! http://www.smartbuyglasses.com/
