It always helps me out when people post gift ideas, especially when those gifts have been kid-tested and mother approved. :)
I thought I would share with you guys things that my boys love to help you with your gift giving this year. Some of these items they received last year for Christmas and are still playing with. This is not a sponsored post, just things my little boys enjoy. I won't write where to buy them - just google the name and you can find each item.
These little doo-dads provide hours of play for my littles. They build things with them, pop them on and off of the floors and just have fun dreaming up fun things to do with them. I love toys that encourage imaginative play and these are perfect for just that.
Now these things are just amazing. Another toy for imaginative play, it keeps them busy and occupied for hours. My boys have built some pretty amazing things out of these little wooden pieces. I recommend these to everyone!
3. FANTACOLOR JR.
This is a great toddler toy. It comes with a dozen or more pictures to place in the holder and then they pop the buttons in according to color. My 5 year old even likes this toy and plays with it often!
4. MELISSA AND DOUG SPELLING PUZZLES
This toddler toy is GREAT. Not only are they having fun with puzzles, but they're learning as they play. We love these in our house.
5. SWITCH AND GO DINOS
Cars that transform into dinosaurs. Need I say more? The boys LOVE these.
All kids love craft time. You draw something on a sheet of plastic, color it, cut it out and then bake it and it shrinks. Super fun!
7. THE ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN UNDERPANTS
Husby went on a trip recently and came back with one of these books for the boys. He read a chapter to them every night before bed and they became OBSESSED. Just mention the word underpants to little boys and they crack up uncontrollably. I don't get it. But they love it. We want to buy more books in the series because this was such a hit with them. ;)
8. WHAT'S IN THE BIBLE WITH BUCK DENVER
Okay, if I could recommend anything, it would be these DVDs. Levi (age 5) is absolutely OBSESSED with them and asks to watch one every night - he prefers it to any of his Disney movies or favorite cartoons. He has all 13, has watched them all, and he learns an incredible amount of the Bible through these. They are THE BEST! And kids think they're so funny! Seriously, get these for your kids!! You won't regret it.
These are my top 8 toy recommendations for this year. If y'all are interested I may do another one of these later in the month. I hope this helps some of you out! Happy shopping!
