Current Favorite Toddler Toys (under $40)


This post is in honor of my first born baby boy turning TWO this Sunday! I am in complete denial that this is happening and it came up way too quickly!

Camden is at a really fun age right now and is becoming so much more interactive with his toys and has even started to play more independently at times. Right now some of his favorite activities are counting/sorting, building towers, coloring, playing with puzzles and collecting the millions of balls we have around the house! 

Below is just a short list of some of Camden's current favorite toys, as well as a few things we have on our wish list.

1. Little Tikes Easy Score Basketball Set - This one we got him for his birthday and actually set it up this past weekend when my parents were in town. It comes with 3 small basketballs and you can adjust the height of the basket. He is really into throwing balls so this definitely keeps him busy and keeps him from throwing balls towards people/babies/breakable things lol!

2. Melissa & Doug Latches Wooden Activity Board - This one I plan to give him for his birthday this weekend. It was recommended to me (Thanks Marina!). I can totally see this latch board keeping him busy for at least 10 minutes!

3. Melissa & Doug Hide and Seek Farm Wooden Activity Board With Barnyard Animal Magnets - Yes, another activity board from Melissa & Doug. I basically love anything from M & D right now. I think their products are perfect for Camden's age range. He is also really into farms right now, so this will be the perfect gift!

4. Little Tikes Count 'n Play Cash Register - This one we've had for a little while now and he still seems interested in it. He's gotten really good at putting the coins in the right slots and swiping the credit card! Maybe because he's seen mommy do it a few times ;)

5. VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Spinning Spiral Tower Playset - We bought this toy a few months ago and he loves it! It came with one car and since then I've bought more cars to go with it. Although, he likes to put other toys down the ramp... like these eggs for example... hey, whatever keeps him busy! 

6. LEGO DUPLO My First Number Train Building Set - This one is currently on the wish list for Christmas. He has some of these mega blocks, but he's starting to get more into the Duplo legos which they have at his school. I think he would really like the train set and I love that it has numbers on it. 

7.  Melissa & Doug On the Go Water Wow! Activity Book, 3-Pack - Animals, Alphabet, and Numbers - My mom brought one of these activity books this past weekend when they visited and Camden loved it! It's so great because you just fill the paint brush with water and it colors the pages with no mess. I repeat... NO MESS! It was the perfect distraction while in his high chair while we would prepare meals.

8. ALEX Toys Artist Studio 10 Finger Crayons - These crayons have been our favorites for a while. We found ours in the Target dollar isle, but have since bought a replacement set on Amazon. They are the perfect size for his hands and he loves stacking them.

9. Crayola, Paw Patrol, Color Wonder Mess-Free Coloring Pad and Markers, Art Tools - I am a BIG fan of these Color Wonder Mess-Free markers and we have several coloring books with different themes. These markers only color on the specific Color Wonder books and do not stain anything else!

There you have it! Our current toddler toy favorites and a few things that are on our Christmas wish list.
