Last year I shared the top five toys that Jude adored between the ages of 1 and 2 (actually, he still loves them, talk about value). This year I thought it would be cool to do the same for 2 to 3 year olds. Jude, being a just after Christmas baby, is the perfect age-based toy tester (Psst, did you hear that Melissa and Doug?). I am a "less is more" gal when it comes to toys (and most other things too, except chocolate and glitter, of course), so with the same intention as last year, I gathered the very top toys that Jude enjoyed all year long. Please note, this post contains affiliate links to Amazon, but as always I encourage you to check out your local, independent toy store.
1. Play Kitchen - Of course I'm a big fan of the DIY option, but there are some awesome and affordable pre-made models. A tool bench is another fun idea. Anything that let's your little one pretend to be grown up.
5. Tricycle - A trike with a handle is a godsend when your little one outgrows (or rejects) a stroller. Plus, before you know it, they will be cruising solo.
Here's hoping this gives you some great ideas for the lucky little ones in your life. Happy Gifting!
