Buy in bulk! Once school starts it will be a marathon of birthday parties and who has time for all that shopping. To make things easy we’ve rounded up toddler gift ideas that all kids seem to love, and at a variety of price points. These are great for birthdays or, of course, your own kids.

Kids Art Box is subscription art box for children to discover and bond through the magic of art. Founded during the pandemic, it’s family owned and every box is carefully curated with arts and crafts items for ages 3-12 that are driven by art education and engaging themes such as magic, pets, rainforest and national parks. You can also do one-off boxes if you don’t want to commit to a subscription. 

I love iPlayiLearn because they offer toys at a wide range of price points and many of their pieces grow with children, meaning you can have them in your toy rotation for months or even years. Checkout the iPlay, iLearn Monster Trucks.

For a higher budget gift, the iPlay, iLearn 3 in 1 Baby Walker Sit to Stand Toys is awesome. My son played with this even before he could crawl – I set up the walker and it encouraged him to reach, press and explore.

The Baby Einstein Musical Mix ‘N Roll 4-in-1 Activity Walker is another versatile find that covers a wide age range and is particularly great for those toddlers that show an affinity for music class (feels like that is every toddler…). I’ve actually brought this to a music class with my toddler a few times so he can jam along and it has made the classes that much more special – especially when they give out stickers which he has decorated the toy with.

Clixo is a modern day LEGO alternative. The magnetic building toy keeps kids’ creativity and imagination flowing as they build both 2D and 3D creations. Instead of being rigid and geometric, Clixo is flexible, tactile and reminiscent of the shapes we see in the natural world. The magnets keeping the pieces together with a click and they’re travel-friendly and mess-free making them particularly great for any birthdays around travel season.

Mudpuppy specializes in toys and puzzles for ages 0-6 and they have a ton of great options for $15 or under, so if you’re looking to buy for a whole class, this is a great place to look for bulk shopping. Their glow in the dark puzzles are particularly unique and such a great price!
