Hot Holiday Toys for Toddlers for 2013

Once your little one reaches the toddler years, shopping for the holidays becomes especially exciting! Kids this age can help you pick out their wish list with a little assistance. I used to go through the holiday catalogs with my son and he’d circle what he wanted. Of course he circled just about everything!


Hot Holiday Toys for Toddlers: Pretend Play

Hot Holiday Toys for Toddlers for 2013 Elmo

Playskool Sesame Street Big Hugs Elmo

Elmo is back again! This time, he wants to share hugs with your little one! He also sings and talks! Press his foot, and your child can embark on one of four magical adventures. I have to say, Elmo has come a long way from merely giggling insanely! Big Hugs Elmo is a lot cuddlier than the super popular
mechanical Elmo toys of the past!

Your little princess will love the Little People Klipklop Stable! Watch Rapunzel and Maximus slide down the ramp for a visit to the stables, then back up to keep watch from the royal tower! Little People play sets are always great hot holiday toys for toddlers!

Little Tikes Gas ‘n Go Mower

Little ones will love pretending to mow the “lawn” with the Little Tikes Gas ‘n Go Mower! Pull the cord to hear the engine sounds and push it along to make the balls pop. Kids can even turn the key and use the throttle. You’ll love it because the sounds are mechanical, so you don’t have to drop a fortune on batteries!

VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels- Airport Playset

All of the VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels sets are great hot holiday toys for toddlers. I particularly love the airport! It’s vibrant and fun. The “smart point” locations on the set respond to the Smart Wheels cars. These toys are great for role-playing and imaginative play!

Hot Holiday Toys For Toddlers: Arts and Crafts

Toddlers love arts and crafts! While they may not be ready to create masterpiece landscapes, they do enjoy coloring, painting and just showing off their creative sides.

Disney Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Minnie Mouse & Friends Coloring Book “Barnyard Cuties!”

Toddlers may not be ready to color in the lines perfectly, but they can sure have fun trying! Mickey Mouse Clubhouse coloring books have characters that are easily recognized by many toddlers

Crayola 4ct Washable Fingerpaints Primary

Finger painting is one of the greatest joys of toddlerhood! Washable finger paints are a must though for parent’s sanity. Crayola’s primary-colored finger paints are perfect for creating Jackson Pollock-style masterpieces! Just be sure to either spread some plastic down or work outside on a warmer day. This is the perfect stocking stuffer!

Alex Toys Funky Artist

ALEX® Toys – Young Artist Studio Funky Artist

Another fun painting gift for toddlers is the Alex Toys Young Artist Studio. It comes with brushes in three different textures, making it great for exploring how different textures create different effects. The brushes are big enough for small hands to grasp easily too!

Toddler Easel Step Two

Step2 Easel For Two with Bonus Magnetic Letters/Numbers

Every toddler needs an easel! I’m telling you, when my son was a toddler, this is the one thing he played with most. We actually had two because I found a second one at a yard sale. It was very similar to this one. I love it because it’s durable enough to take outdoors in the warmer months. The magnetic foam letters are great for practicing ABCs. This is a gift that really grows with your toddler.

Crayola My First Crayola Triangular Crayons 16ct

Crayons are one of my favorite hot holiday toys for toddlers to stick in the stocking. I love the chunky triangular shape of these crayons. That not only makes it easier for gripping, but helps your child learn the proper way to grasp a pencil. Trust me: as someone who never learned the proper way to hold a pencil, I wish I had these when I was little! I also love that they don’t roll away when your toddler sets them down. This makes them great for keeping little ones entertained in a restaurant!

Hot Holiday Toys for Toddlers: Ride-On Toys

Hot Holiday Toys for Toddlers

Little Tikes Go and Grow Lil’ Rollin’ Giraffe

This ride-on toy has an adjustable seat that grows with your child. It holds up to 50 pounds, so they won’t be outgrowing it too soon. My son is 8 and just hit 50 pounds! It’s incredibly adorable too. The back wheel adds stability, and it accommodates children as young as 9 months, making it the perfect first ride on toy.

Laugh and Learn Ride on Puppy

Fisher-Price Laugh and Learn Stride-to-Ride Puppy

Another great first ride-on for toddlers, this one takes the action a step further by rewarding your toddler with music and sounds as they ride around the house! It helps encourage walking skills too because your little one has to use her feet to push it forward.

Fisher-Price Rock, Roll ‘n Ride Trike XL

Want something that will get your toddler used to peddling? This makes a fun first trike! It actually has three ways to ride. When they’re smaller, set it to the rocking ride on. As your toddler gets older, add on the back and make it a peddling ride on. Later, take the back off and it’s a regular trike!

Radio Flyer 4-in-1 Trike Red

Radio Flyer is another brand that every child should own at some point! I love this trike because it provides great stability for unsure toddlers. The wrap-around bars can be removed as your child becomes more certain of himself. It also has a snack tray and cup holder! Talk about your luxury cruiser!

Hape Scoot Around Ride On

I just had to include this one in the hot holiday toys for toddlers because it’s such a neat looking toy. I love the bright green color and the simplicity of it. This is great for parents who don’t want all the bells and whistles. It’s completely child-driven, so it helps develop muscles. It’s made with FSC-certified wood and child-safe water based paint, and Hape takes safety VERY seriously, so you know it meets all the best standards.
