Karaoke Machine, $49
It’s never too early to foster their love of music, and a karaoke machine is just plain fun. This one comes with two mikes, an adjustable stand with handheld option, speakers, and easy auxiliary hookup for music streaming.
Hand Knit Dinosaur, $25
While stuffed animals can all start looking the same after a while, this hand-knit T-Rex from Hazard Baby on Etsy is a super-special gift.

Memory Game, $13.99
The Original Memory Game from Hasbro is such a blast, kids won’t even realize they’re learning while playing.
Kinetic Sand, $10.95
Kids can bring the beach or sandbox inside with Spin Master Kinetic Sand. It sticks to itself and is easy to clean up, unless the stuff that comes in from the outdoors.
Slouchy Beanie, $15-17 each
I love the selection of Wild Sunshine Threads slouchy beanies for boys and girls, handmade by a California mom of two busy toddlers.
Washable Finger Paints, $8.75
Three-year-olds are notorious for making messes, and the kind that don’t leave marks behind are best. Crayola’s four-tube washable finger painting set is the ticket.
