10 Birthday Gift Ideas for Toddlers

Updated: Aug 28, 2023

If you're in need of some birthday gift inspiration for your toddler, we've got you covered with 10 great ideas to consider.

I had one of these bad boys as a kid and I can't wait to make memories with my boys in this. The Jeep fits two kids with a max weight of 130lb. Top speeds are 5 mph forward and 2.5 mph in reverse. It also includes a removable grill, perfect for a pretend picnic!

This is the perfect gift for screen-free fun and my 2-year old absolutely loves it. The 28-piece set includes everything a kid needs to run an ice cream shop and is made by Melissa & Doug, which is the "gold standard in childhood play".

You'll recognize this toy if you watch Ms. Rachel! It has multiple play points and plays over 45 songs, sounds and phrases. My toddler loves mimicking Ms Rachel when she is using this toy set as a prop and it definitely helps his overall development.

Create a mini water park right in your back yard with the Rain Showers Splash Pond Water Table by Step2. The two-tier design creates a showering splash below! Just scoop up water from the pond and pour into the top tray to make it rain. Water tables are ideal for toddlers to splash, pour, and explore an interactive playtime experience.

A great sports enlightenment toy for 10 month to 4-year-olds. Available in 4 color options. This tricycle has 4 different modes that help kids ages 1-4 master their balance step-by-step. The bike assembles in 1 minute without tools!

Of course, I must include my favorite parent hack as a gift idea. This bounce house is awesome, featuring an enclosed bounce area and an extra-wide slide that lets 2 kids race! The compact design makes it easy to transport and set up almost anywhere in only a few minutes. The blower is included!

Vibrant and amazingly versatile, these high-quality magnetic tiles are just the right size for little hands and perfect for cool learning activities, fun experiments, and countless hours of open-ended play. My toddler loves building with these and it's been amazing to see the fine motor skill development over time.

This Kinetic Sand kit is the ultimate gift for kids. It’s the perfect sensory toy for hours of imaginative construction play – dig, build and crush! This set comes with 2lbs of Kinetic Sand, a dump truck and crane. It's a great indoor activity without the cleanup of going to the beach!

Yea, you had one of these as a kid too. You can't beat a classic. This encourages toddlers to play independently while working on balance and improving their hand-eye coordination. The set comes with 3 balls and assembles in only a few minutes.

If you travel a lot, this is a must for your little one. They can color endlessly with no mess! When they want to start over, they simply push the button to clear it. This model has been upgraded to include a tether on the pen so they can't drop or throw it.
