Toddler Gift Guide: Ages 2-5

Sharing is caring!

Two toddlers in the house and self-quarantined. Help Please!! But! I have had a few tricks up my sleeve this past week that the kids have had very little TV time. So here is a mini toddler gift guide of our favorite puzzles, games, books, play and more!

I also want to note – we either have previously owned or currently own these items (or equivalent) in our own home, OR the kids have played at a friend’s/cousins/grandparents home. These are tried and true items that my kids love to play with.

Toddler Puzzles

My kiddos love building puzzles. They have spent hours of puzzle building and the almost 4 year old can do all of these puzzles herself! The first puzzle is perfect for the younger age group. This is the one that I started building with my kids. The 20-piece puzzles are perfect because they have a board behind with the same picture printed on it. And Melissa & Doug puzzles are perfect because they are large enough pieces for toddlers to hold themselves and are great quality!

Toddler Games

My kids love to play games. And these games are perfect for toddlers because they don’t last long, and the rules are fairly easy to explain!

Cars and Trucks and Airplanes and Trains and basically anything with wheels are played with for HOURS in our home. By both genders. All. The. Time. So I felt that this needed its own section of this gift guide!
