The Best Toys of the Year (for Toddlers)


Yup, it’s official… Christmas is right around the corner! And what better way to celebrate than to pick the perfect gift for your toddler! You’re probably aware though that the holiday season isn’t without its challenges – from heavy traffic, to people rushing at lightning speed to their favorite store or outlet (and accidentally bumping into you), to checking out a huge list of recommended toys… and if you are like me, things could get stressful in a hurry.

Good thing it’s easier to shop online from the comfort of your home. Great thing is we’ve compiled the best of the best that this year has to offer, so you can narrow down your choices and make better decisions. Having said that, here’s a guide to our top 10 toys for toddlers.

  1. This was interesting and aggravating at the same time. I’m very perturbed by the gender division they placed on the toys. ALL of the “boy” toys are toys that I consider to be absolutely 100% appropriate for my daughter as well, not just my boys. And my boys would enjoy the “girl” toys just as much too.
    But I’m even more bothered by the “girl” toys and some of the descriptions for them. Such as the Snuggle Pod which is described as “teaches nurturing skills at a very young age”. WTH?!?! 1. Why should a little girl be taught nurturing skills at a very young age to begin with and 2. If you’re going to teach that to a girl, why shouldn’t a little boy be taught those same skills?

    • Thank you for your feedback Andrea and rest assured, we made a mistake and we apologize. Our article will be edited very soon.

  2. It amazes me that in this generation people still label things as best for boys and best for girls. My son likes dressing up and playing football, he enjoys tucking in pooh bear and destroying his tower of legos. I don’t understand why “The Best Toys of the Year (for Toddlers)” felt the need to specify what they felt was gender appropriate.

    • Thank you for the feedback Melisa, while our reasoning behind the article was to make it easier for parents to find toys for their children, we ended up stereotyping and clearly… We made a mistake. We should have our article edited very soon.

  3. Quit whining about the toys being labeling boys and girls, this country is too preoccupied with being politically correct.

  4. What’s wrong with boys and girls having different toys? Some parents DO buy toys based on gender. While I don’t mind if my son tucks in a baby I wouldn’t be caught buying him a Barbie (and no he’s never hinted at wanting one either). Quit trying to suck all kids into a gender-less existence.
