PUZZLES! These Crocodile Creek puzzles have been a game-changer in our house! They are sturdy, colorful, and just the right size! We have four of them in our collection and my girls have been begging for more! Check out all the themes HERE.

PEG BOARD – Has your child ever played with a peg board and plastic pegs? This sweet set is perfect for one and encourages littles to stack and build. I love that it encourages fine motor skills, counting, and color recognition.

MAGNETIC TILES – RUN and get these NOW! Oh my goodness, you guys! We had no idea what we were missing out on until we got these. Both my girls, ages 3 and 5, absolutely LOVE building with these toys. They are magnetic and oh SO COOL! These are the Picasso Tiles and I highly recommend them.

MEGA BLOCKS – These have been a hit in our house since my littles were small! We own two sets one of which is the alphabet train and they have held up so well. The girls of course just love building and stacking with them, but it is also so fun to add them to sensory bins too! They clean EASY. This is definitely a toy kids love – trust me!

WOODEN LETTER, NUMBER, & PATTERN PUZZLE – I randomly came across this toy on Amazon and had no idea it would keep my girls so engaged! It’s small, perfect for independent play or to use as a quiet time activity. My girls love trying to recreate all the letters, numbers, and shapes and it really has been such a great buy!


Now I’m sure I could ADD a lot more to this list, I mean my house is overflowing with baby dolls and dress-up clothes (HA!), but thought I’d stick to what is in our media stand for today. These are definitely toys my kids love and I think yours might too.

Let us know your favorite!
