Hottest Items on Every Toddler’s Christmas List

Can you believe that Christmas is less than 2 weeks away?! As usual, I have procrastinated and have not done any Christmas shopping yet. And while I know that my kids would be perfectly happy getting nothing but superhero/princess stuff, I was hoping to find maybe a few toys that were slightly more educational and/or developmentally stimulating. I know, I’m such a mean mom!

Luckily, there are some amazing products on the market this Christmas season that any toddler would absolutely love! Here are some of my favorites (and they are all going on our list to Santa!):

Hottest Items on Every Toddler’s Christmas List

Antsy Pants Build and Play Kits

My son has a thing for trains. When we saw this Antsy Pants kit, I knew he would love it. Even his big sister loves to play in his “choo choo.” We love Antsy Pants Build and Play Kits because they come in a wide variety of options and really encourage kids not only to build, but to use their imaginations during play! This train (or any of the Antsy Pants kits) is a must for your toddler’s Christmas list!

I just don’t understand how these toys are so insanely popular with kiddos, but they are. My daughter has told me at least 437 times this week how badly she wants one for Christmas. I figure this little “pet” is a much better option for me than her wanting a real kitten (NOPE, nope, noooope). Hatchimals all the way!

Soggy Doggy Game

I love board games for kids. They encourage interactive play with each other and with mom and dad. This cutie-pie game seems like it would be a hit with most toddlers, especially because it makes a “mess” that they won’t get in trouble for.

Hape Checkout Register

I love wood toys for my kids. This little cash register would be a huge hit for my kids and go perfectly with their new Antsy Pants Market Stand.

The Moodsters Feelings Flashlight

This adorable little flashlight and storybook is a genius tool for helping kids recognize and talk about the emotions they’re feeling. Many toddlers start to have nightmares or feel afraid of the dark and need to find a way to express those feelings. I love that this toy can help them do just that!

GeoSafari Jr. Talking Microscope

This talking microscope features the voice of Bindi Irwin from Australia Zoo and provides visual detail and information about plants, animals and everyday household items. I love how this toy introduces a real scientific instrument and opens up the world of science to little minds.

Garnet Hill Slipper Boots

Okay, I know this is not a toy, but how adorable are these slippers? My four-year-old daughter loves to wear slippers these days and I think these would be a well received gift this Christmas. Not only are they practical (keeping tiny toes warm this winter) but they are so much fun!

Fingerlings Interactive Baby Monkey

Yeah, so, evidently these little monkeys are the hottest item on the planet this Christmas. They are really hard to find! I can see why; these monkeys hang on to little fingers and interact with movement and voices. My kids’ Mimi has already ordered some for them and I have a feeling everything else they get for Christmas will be quickly forgotten after they see these monkeys.


magna tiles, baby chick, toddler christmas, christmas list
These magnetic tiles are so much fun! My kids have a set and they are constantly building and creating with them. This is the perfect gift for toddlers who love to play with blocks or legos. They add a whole new dimension of fun with the magnets!

Thomas & Friends Super Station Playset

This train set is one of the coolest I’ve found. For my choo-choo loving son, this would probably be his dream train set. I love the multiple levels and many different configuration options for this train station.

Have you started Christmas shopping yet? I hope this list gives you a bit of inspiration to get started shopping for your favorite toddlers! Santa is coming faster than you think!
