One of the interesting things about having kids 4 years apart (almost 9, almost 5, and almost 1) is that it gives you a chance to see what toys actually hold their attention over the years. Here's our list of favorite things if you are needing some inspiration for your kiddos this year.
The Radio Flyer Classic Walker Wagon We bought this for Bowman at 9 months and he LOVED it so much that we are getting Libby one this year. It's well built and sturdy. He loved it long after he could walk.
Step 2 Whisper Ride On Push Car. Again, Bowman loved this so much we are getting one for Libby.
Magna-Tiles These seriously are the BEST toys ever. All kids love these. My 8 year old still plays with them and the baby loves chewing on them.
Kinetic Sand Sand Box w/ 2 Pounds of Sand. Great for sensory play! Easy clean-up and both boys love playing with it.
Lifetime Climbing Dome. Our kids love to climb! We got this 3 years ago and the boys still use it regularly.
Lasertag Guns These are a HUGE hit. Boys and girls love them. They do require frequent battery changes BUT no nerf bullets.
Relay Kids Phone Alternative. We love this thing! Bowman uses this when he's riding his bike around the neighborhood. It fits in his pocket and we use an App on our cell phone to talk to them.
Lego Advent Calendar. A Christmas tradition in our house! Frank couldn't quite put them together by himself last year at 3 years old but Bowman helped him which kept them both happy.
