Melissa and Doug Jumbo Building Blocks

Building stuff is always a fun activity for toddlers. It encourages creativity and even teaches early concepts of physics. To help little hands build, these jumbo sturdy cardboard blocks are perfect.

Little Kid Trampoline with Enclosure

This might seem a bit much, but my son absolutely loves this trampoline. I use mine outside on the patio. I get to sit outside and work while my son gets to have fun (and burn some energy!). If you have a large indoor space, it’d work well there, too. It has a door that zips closed for safety as well. 

Play-doh FUNdamentals Box 

Play-doh is a great way to keep your toddler entertained. I love this fundamentals box because it has the play-doh, play mats, and most importantly, the play-doh squeezer (not sure if that’s official but it makes sense to me). My son loves this and will play quite well with this. 

From 12/26/18 to 01/02/19, the Living Well Planner is only $35! Plus 30% off most items in store.

Crayola My First Doodle Board

If your toddler is into art, this is a fun, mess free option. My son is fascinated with this doodle board and loves “drawing” me pictures on it. 

Kids Dyson Vacuum


If you can work with some noise, this is a great option. Like most toddlers, my son is fascinated by the noise of the vacuum. This kids Dyson has two levels of noise, the little plastic pieces in the canister swirl around to simulate a real vacuum, and while it “works”, it will only pick up fuzz balls or very light weight items.

Toddler Racer Car


This is fun to watch my toddler figure out. It requires hand eye coordination and problem solving as they try to get the car to move in the direction they want using the controller.

Think & Learn Rocktopus


This one is on the wish list because it looks so much fun. Coordinating commands and making music are perfect for keeping your toddler busy and entertained for a bit.

Ride on Police Motorcycle


Being able to navigate and ride around the house has kept my son busy many times. This little rechargeable motorcycle is controlled by a push pedal and using the handle bars to turn. The light works and has a siren for an added bonus.

Amazon FreeTime Unlimited


In a world dominated by technology, I think its important that our kids learn how to use technology.

With that technology comes so many learning opportunities!

It really gives me piece of mind that he is using tech but getting so much good out of it. 

My son has learned so much from the shows on Amazon like SuperWhy that teaches problem solving , reading and writing as well as Daniel Tiger which teaches a lot about manners, social etiquette and conflict resolution. 

Honestly, it seems to get through to my son better when he can see it acted out with his favorite characters instead of me trying to explain it to him.
