I love Christmas and giving presents. I especially love buying presents for my son. Since my son is old enough now to comprehend a lot more than he was last Christmas, I want to give him educational gifts this year that will teach him all sorts of different things. I’ve been looking in stores and scouring the Internet for months now trying to think of ideas and today I want to share my top picks with you.
Melissa and Doug Magnetic Wooden Alphabet. This wooden alphabet is a fun way to teach your toddlers their letters plus they’re magnetic so you can stick them on your fridge. Shop Melissa And Doug Here.
Boikido Wooden Push and Play Mouse Wagon. This fun toy will not only be hours of entertainment for your child to push and pull around the house but it also has lots of puzzles and mazes on every side of it. Shop Boikido Wagon Here.
Leapfrog’s Scout and/or Violet dogs. Scout is my son’s favorite toy and favorite friend. These adorable puppies will sing your child to sleep, quiz them on animal sounds, and you can even personalize them by plugging in your child’s name, favorite songs, and favorite foods. This will be a favorite toy for years to come. Shop Leap Frog Scout Here.
Disney It’s a Small World: Furry Friends Hardcover Book. This is one of the cutest touch and feel books I’ve ever seen. It’s not only adorable, it’s great for your child’s senses, too. Shop For Furry Friends Here.
Build and Play Alphabet Play Mat. These are visually colorful and appealing for your toddler, it’s one giant puzzle that’s great for little brain development, and it will help teach kid’s their ABC’s! Win-Win-Win! Shop For Alphabet Mats Here.
Melissa and Doug Snowman Stacker. This awesome and festive toy is great for enhancing your child’s coordination, plus it’s not your typical everyday stacker toy! I love that it’s an adorable snowman, perfect for Christmas gift giving. Shop Melissa And Doug Snowman Stacker Here.
Fisher Price Little People Animal Sounds Farm. This is one of the top gifts on my list for my son. I have always been a fan of the classic toys from Fisher Price and this one is one of my favorites. The people are large enough so little ones won’t choke on them if they stick them in their mouth and this great set up also comes complete with animal noises to help your toddler identify what sound each animal makes.

Leap Frog Leap Pad 2. This will be a big hit with any kids who love electronics and always want to get their hands on your computer, iPhone, or remote controls. Let your child have their very own tablet this Christmas that will stimulate them, teach them new things, and get them away from your devices. This is the gift for children that keeps giving to the parents, too! Shop Leap Frog Leap Pad 2 Here.
Tegu Magnetic Blocks. Tegu blocks are brilliant. These blocks come in all sorts of colors and are smooth and sleek plus they are magnetic! These are great for little kids who may not quite be ready for other blocks yet. Because they stick together it’s much easier for little hands to build things with them plus they don’t get lost as easy and clean up is a cinch. Shop Tegu Blocks Here.
Baby Einstein DVD Collection. Most toddlers love TV, so if they’re going to have their eyes glued to the screen, why not make it something educational? This set will give your children a variety of awesome DVD’s, all of which are educational and entertaining.
