Trend Lab Plush Cow Chair: Looking for a unique and fun gift for the toddler in your life? We are loving this adorable plush cow chair from Trend Lab! The Plush Cow Chair is the perfect holiday gift any little one will love lounging on! The cow has quickly became one of their top selling chairs, bringing delightful whimsy to your little one’s world and any room of the house. Providing a contoured support for reading, relaxing and snuggling, this super-soft character chair makes a fun, comfy addition to any room in your home. Whether your child is reading, watching a movie or just relaxing, they’ll love sitting in this cute, comfy chair.

CubCoats: If you’re looking for a toddler gift that serves more than one function – we love CubCoats – which are both a toy and a coat! Perfect for a minimalist household or family. CubCoats are a 2-in-1 stuffed animal which transforms into a super soft hoodie! CubCoats are made from durable and super soft material for cuddly comfort, and they are ethically sourced, double lined, made with premium materials. We love that they are machine washable, dry safe, and ready to play! Our editor’s 2.5 year old loved wearing his CubCoat and transforming into a little bear himself! As their website says, “We all remember that one stuffed animal we couldn’t sleep without…and the hoodie we had that just seemed softer than the rest. Here’s our hope: Your child will find both in their Cubcoat.” They have a ton of variations, and characters, even characters from some of your children’s favorite movies!

Jooki Music Player for Kids: When our team came across Jooki, we knew we had to share it with you all! Jooki is a super fun and intuitive – screen free way – for children to listen to music, audiobooks and more! The song or the story starts when the figurine is placed on Jooki. Jooki is so intuitive and perfectly designed that your little music fan immediately adopts it. You can listen to any type of music! You can stream your favorite music from Spotify, and Jooki also allows you to copy your music from an old CD, podcast, audio books. Once the playlists created on Jooki, whatever their source (Spotify, radio or files), you can link them with a figurine using the Jooki app on your smartphone or computer. Jooki is portable and strong, plus it has a solid strap to carry it. The characters are easily attached to Jooki. Your child will feel independent and can take Jooki to bed, in the car, to his grandparents house or to the beach. As a splashproof device it can be used in the bathroom and outdoors. Spice up your morning routine and start your day on the right foot by playing your kid’s favourite song. The Jooki app also offers parental controls, such as the ability to turn off Jooki remotely at bedtime. Jooki helps passionate parents create a musical environment for their families spending quality moments far from a screen. Check out this video to see the Jooki in action!

The Field: When it comes to gifts for toddlers and to toys for kids in general, we always love ways kids can unplug and play together with! Our editor’s kids loved this toy and we wanted to share it as a great gift for toddlers and kids this holiday season. Created in Ireland, The Field toy is a must-have holiday gift for kids that helps inspire real world, screen-free, and imaginative play. This must-have field toy features lush green grass, hedging, traditional wooden farm gates, farm animals, a tractor, and more! Creative play is proven to have intellectual, emotional and social benefits, and The Field toy is the perfect way to help boys and girls ages 3+ get away from the screens and use their own ingenuity to develop a farm or outdoor world right in front of their eyes.

7AM Enfant GlacierPOD: When it comes to holiday time, there is always travel to be done – and this gift idea is more for the family of a toddler, but so cool nonetheless! The 7AM Enfant GlacierPOD keeps your tyke warm and cozy during the cold winter months. The 5-point harness universal openings are ideal for securing into any stroller and car seat, plus the detachable cover can be used separately as a blanket.
