As I have an almost 2 year old little man, I'm starting to become an expert on all things boy. Especially the type of toys my little man prefers. With Christmas coming up, I thought I'd share his favorite types of toys, in case any of you need help deciding what to get for your little men. I'll share with you his favorites...and some of mine.
B. Toys Lap Magnetic Drawing Toy
My son has this in the "olive" color and he absolutely loves it. We picked ours up at Target for around $15 and it was money well spent. It goes along with us on long car rides, and he sits down and plays with is multiple times a day. You can also just get a MagnaDoodle brand one, which is essentially the same thing, I just think the B. brand is adorable.
My sons favorite toys are his Shake and Go Cars. They have all types of brands, but he has just about every "Cars" one. His favorite is the one pictured here, but he loves them all. They are super simple to use. You shake them up, and they go. He spends a good portion of his day chasing these little guys around.
You can get these EVERYWHERE. They average a little less than a dollar a piece, or you can get a gift set like this one on Amazon for less than $10. I love them because they are small, travel well, and they're cheap so you're not heartbroken if you misplace them. Little boys love them and they are a frugal and easy gift.
Little man doesn't have this yet, but I think he's going to get it from Santa. Strictly because he won't leave my broom alone. And, hey, why not teach them a love for cleaning at a young age....muahahahaha!
This stuff is AWESOME! I had to stop my husband on several occasions from buying it for himself. It's a polymer/sand mix that allows you to build and mold with the sand, without the mess! It's awesome! We had a fun time trying some out a few weeks ago, and it didn't irritate my super sensitive skin, which is always a plus. Little man will be getting some of this as soon as he stops eating everything in sight...It can be a little pricey, as a small box is $20. But, I would say it's worth it since the replay value is high.
We got this for Baby B a few months ago and he loves it. Elmo and Cookie Monster talk and sing, and you feed Elmo and Abby, and the food falls down into the oven. He gets a kick out of that every time. I love that it's small, and doesn't take up a ton of room like most play kitchens. It says it's around $50 online, but I got it at our local Wal Mart for less than $25, which really couldn't be beat.
I just love all of their toys. They are educational, and most are wooden or not as "noisy" as a lot of toys today. Which most Mom's would agree is a good thing. They can be pricy, so always look for them on sale!
You can never really go wrong with books. Baby B already loves to flip through them himself and have us read them to him. They're small and travel well, and will be loved for years and years.
All in all, there are tons of toys out there for your little's in everyone's price range. I just wanted to give you some ideas from some of our favorites. Do you have any favorite toys for your little's? I would love to hear your suggestions.
