Most used toys in our house

Right now these are the most played with toys in our house..
My 18 month old girl loves her stuffed puppies.
We live 2 hours away from the closest grocery store so going shopping is a big outing for us. We allow the kids to pick a small toy when we go and she always wants a stuffed puppy or kitten!
Her laugh and learn puppy is a huge hit. She shakes her booty and claps along with the songs! Her older brother even participates which makes her super happy.
This can be found here for $14.99!
Old navy soccer ball

We got this at an old navy store and she held it the rest of the shopping day, even in PetCo! 🙂
And her leap frog shapes and sorting picnic basket which her brother plays along with too. They have picnics together and sort the different food shapes onto the right plates. They enjoy pretend food and this gets a lot of play time!

This can be found here for $16.2
My toddler boy is in love with lego duplos! He play with Legos the most and enjoys building different things. We normally buy them when we are at the bookstore which is pricey and I would recommend amazon! They have a lot of options, we started out with a little set that can be found here for under $20.

We got him a spray and rescue little tikes fire truck that can be purchased here for $76. It was cheaper back in December but I would say it’s still worth under $100. It will be a lot of fun when it’s summer and he can spray it outside…. Maybe even water the plants! 😉

Top five played with 2 year old toys under $25

This is a list of the top ten items I have purchased for my two year old.

He tends to play with something and then forget aboutitforawhile but these ten things get played with every if you can believe it!!

1. Discovery Kids Cardboard House

$24.49

I actually bought mine on Amazon because I’m a prime member and get free shipping which is rare for Alaska but without prime it’s cheaper on Overstock.

My so loves this house! He especially loves if I scare him at the window and run to the door, silly of loves being scared and asks “one more time” a million times lol.
My husband is 6’2 and can sit up in the house just fine.
My only complaint is that it is big and takes up a lot of space but perfect if you have a play room!
Currently he has an Elmo toy organizer and Cars chair in his house.

2. Alex Little Hands Button Art

http://www.amazon.com/Alex-Little-Hands-Button-Art/dp/B003AP4JPE

$17.91

This is great because you place the buttons on the correct colors and he learns as he plays. He really enjoys this and announces the colors as he places them in the holes. It comes with 10 different pictures and the bottom is where you store your buttons while you’re not playing. It tides up well and I enjoy seeing him learn and play at the same time.

3. Fisher Price Drillin Action Tool Set

http://www.amazon.com/Fisher-Price-Drillin-Action-Tool-Set/dp/B002SXMH3K

$17.97

When Ky’s friends come over to play both boys and girls love this toy!
It’s neat because the drill actually works and goes in reverse as well.
The hammer can be a little annoying but what toddler doesn’t enjoy a little noise here and there, or always!

4. VTech Spin and Learn Color Flashlight

http://www.amazon.com/VTech-Spin-Learn-Color-Flashlight/dp/B007XVYPS2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1367471056&sr=8-1&keywords=Toddler+toys

$12.99

This isn’t really a flashlight but he loves it. He puts a real flashlight in us eyes so this is more appropriate for him for now.

It’s a little loud but he enjoys pressing the few buttons it has so I’d say its great for being $12.99!

5. Crayola Washable Finger Paint

http://www.amazon.com/Crayola-4ct-Washable-Fingerpaints-Primary/dp/B002VBXL52/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1367471621&sr=8-9&keywords=Toddler+toys

$9.80

This is the best and most purchased of all in this house hold!
We love painting everything and anything. If you’re familiar with my blog you can see all the different times he has used this paint for many different things.
These tubes last awhile and cleanup so easily.
This is my favorite and his favorite!

Travel Toys We Like

Here are a few travel toys that we like…

I bought each of these toys for under $5 a piece!

The bunny is great because it’s also a teething toy, Kyler really seems to like it.

The giraffe is easy to hold and rattles as well.

The mobile is really cool because you can either attach it to your stroller or on the car window!

Every child prefers a certain toy more than others seem to but these are a few Kyler seems to enjoy!

Of course we have a million other things that we bring with us on trips but these seems to be the easiest/smallest and keep him occupied just fine.

Building Blocks

At Kyler’s check-up they asked if he stacks things yet… Well he hadn’t so I was worried that he was behind so started trying as soon as we got home! Of course he’s not behind so don’t worry if your child is one and isn’t doing this yet!

My sister Tiffany got him stacking blocks for Christmas and he loves them!

He enjoys when I stack them and he can knock them over most of all but he will stack three on top of each other… They normally aren’t stable but he does a great job!

He loves to bang the blocks together as well! He loves to share and gives me a block to stack with him. 🙂

12-18 Months

Develop better fine motor skills and coordination. Most toddlers are quite content to scribble with crayon on paper (and anything else that happens to be in the vicinity), to stack blocks instead of just banging them together, and use utensils when eating. All these skills take practice, so be sure to give your toddler plenty of opportunity to do so, and don’t expect perfection in the days or weeks to come.

Eating everything

Does everyone’s child enjoy eating the toys more than playing with them? I feel he puts them in his mouth more than anything! 🙂
