Last week in our Facebook community, we chatted with our Mom Creators about what gifts they have their eyes on this season. With Black Friday sales starting up this week, this list might have some sell-out items (fair warning). The Mom Creators have spoken and here are their predictions for the top gifts of the holidays this year!
The Little Tikes Story Dream Machine is arguably the viral toy of the season, and pretty much already sold out everywhere! This toy set comes with a projector and little cards that can be inserted to bring storybooks to life. It also has white noise to double as a sound machine as well! If you can get your hands on it, it’s sure to be a hit!
The Tonie Box seems to be on everyone’s list this year. This fun, interactive audio device gives kids hours of entertainment, screen-free. Get a bundled set with your favorite Pixar characters or Disney Princesses.
If you have a toddler or preschooler, consider adding this Balance Bike from Get Up & Go to their list. Do you remember how hard it was to learn to ride a bike? Balance Bikes solve many of the balance challenges that come with learning to ride a bike by teaching kids balance before pedaling. This one has the form of a regular bike, just without the pedals.
Have you ever held a Slumberkins? We can attest that these are some of the softest, snuggliest stuffed animals you have ever felt. In addition to their cuddly nature, Slumberkins are designed by pediatric experts to help children learn emotional intelligence, express their feelings, and build a positive self-image. There are storybooks, activities, and more that accompany the Slumberkins to create a gift that keeps on giving.
Is your little one entering their climbing phase? The Pikler Triangles are a great place for little ones to safely climb, become more aware of their body, and learn motor planning. This one from Magical4restDE is adjustable, giving your little one even more ways to play and climb! A great idea for active little ones, especially when the cold weather makes it more difficult to get out and play!
Are you tired of spending Christmas morning assembling toys? The play kitchen from Lalo does not reuqire any tools for assembly and can be fully put together in a matter of minutes. The neutral-colored design fits well into almost any home. Or perhaps this one from Tender Leaf Toys is more your style! Or maybe this adorable white and wood one from Milton and Goose. Play Kitchens are definitely popular this year!
Magna-Tiles make a great gift and are a fun take on building blocks where each piece has magents around the edges to connect them together. Magna-Tiles are hours of fun and can let a little one’s imagination soar to new heights! Best of all, with the magnetic design, it makes for easy clean-
Looking for a personal gift for a little one this year? We have been seeing personalized embroidered sweatshirts everywhere this year! This one is really adorable and you could add a nickname or initials instead of the first name if so desired!
The Nanobébé Aura Baby Monitor is brand new to the market this season and is blowing away the competition. With so many smart features including breathing motion detection, HD streaming, a built-in sound machine, and more, this should be top of the list for expecting parents and parents with little ones looking for an exceptional baby monitor!
