It has taken me a while to compile this gift guide mostly because I was dragging my feet on deciding what we wanted to get Otis for Christmas. We already have a lot of bigger items and I wanted to make the toys we picked out for him really count space wise. Let’s be honest, when you have a 1+ year old you start to really accumulate things and space is precious. So! Here are my top picks. Some of these items Otis already has and loves and some we have either purchased or our family purchased for him! Hope you love this gift guide. I don’t know how I am not going to give him these gifts as they start coming in. Luckily Blake grabs them from me and hides them in the office. Other wise I would probably just hand them straight to Otis from the packaging. Love seeing that little guy smile!!
GIFTS FOR 1 TO 2 YEAR OLD TODDLERS
1 // green toys train set: This is high on my list. Otis does not have any trains and I love all the green toys trucks we currently have.
2 // first 100 words book set: We have the holiday version of this book so figured this was a nice piece to add to his library. He loves books and these are great for teaching him new words.
3 // fisher-price laugh & learn piggy bank: We currently have this as a hand me down toy that we recently pulled out and Otis is obsessed. It’s nice and small and easy to move room to room.
4 // disney/pixar cars racetrack talkers lighting mcqueen vehicle: Otis needed something from the Cars movie so we grabbed this at Disneyland this week.
5 // tegu magnetic pocket pouch wooden block set: We have the larger set of these and I brought them along with us to the hotel this past weekend. Love this travel friendly smaller pack to throw in the diaper bag or my purse.
6 // custom name puzzle: I ordered this for Otis and am patiently awaiting its arrival. Love that you can customize the colors also!
7 // fisher-price mickey & the roadster racers hot rod 10-pack cars: Otis loves Mickey so this is a great set since he also loves cars.
8 // Disney+ year membership: We bought Disney+ and have been LOVING IT!!! They also have the Disney Junior shows we love like Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Puppy Dog Pals, and Mickey and the Roadster Racers. It would make a really special gift for a Disney/Pixar lover.
9 // cubcoats mickey mouse: We have a few cubcoats already and I just ordered this one for Otis when we go to Disneyland!
10 // cason little helper dyson cord-free vacum cleaner: Otis is obsessed with our adult sized dyson so thought this would make a fun present. It actually has real suction!!
11 // fire hd 8 kids edition tablet 8″: This has already come in handy for us. This is the tablet we have been using for Otis if we want to put on a movie, play education games, or even read a book! You can download different activities to the tablet and it has a 2 year guarantee which is epic for kids that will inevitably chuck this thing. What I love is that you can switch it out of kid mode to regular mode and still download things like netflix. We also downloaded our baby monitor app on it so it can double as a monitor since Otis does not use this constantly.
12 // green toys eco-friendly recycling truck: Otis is obsessed with trash-trucks. He watches them every single week on his morning walks. Thought this would be extra special for him.
13 // lego duplo my first train: We don’t have any legos yet and these are a great first kit for Otis.
14 // step2 ride on push car: Ok I have talked about this car for so long but seriously it’s been such a great gift and we use it multiple times a day. If you are on the fence, BUY IT. Otis loves going on neighborhood walks in it.
15 // vtech brilliant baby laptop: My mother-in-law recently bought this for Otis and he has loved it. It has a few different modes and lots of buttons to keep him busy.
16 // plan toys wooden baby walker: Otis has actually had this for a while but now he is having so much fun pushing this thing around the house and then pulling all the blocks out to play with it.
17 // green toys ferry boat with mini cars bath toys: LOVE this bath toy gift. We don’t have anything like it and it’s on the top of my list for him.
18 // playskool explore n’ grow busy gears: He has played with a different version of this and was obsessed with the moving gears.
19 // playgo scoop a ball launcher: Otis has this and walks around the house “vacuuming” saying vroom. It’s the cutest! Also spotted it at homegoods if you are passing by one.
