Holiday giving is in the air, and while I was pondering my list for my kidlets, I had a childhood flashback—my little brother, probably the age of two, going wild for “woof woof” his favorite toy. Woof Woof was a 1968 Fisher Price Beagle pull-along wooden dog that was placed under the tree. He loved this timeless dog, and we had it for years. My daughter, like her uncle, is completely dog crazy. When she was about six months old, I bought her a Follow Me Domino
toy dog that barks and plays musical tunes when moving around the floor. She still screams with delight when this little pooch is in motion. Needless to say, this toy remains a huge hit and makes one terrific present for kids 6-24 months.
The Sing Along CD Player
is a popular item in my household when we host playdates. It’s karaoke for toddlers—gotta love that!
All three of my kids adore musical instruments—they make great gift choices, and I have a soft spot for giving them. My three-year-old just received this guitar.
Never out of style and always a crowd-pleaser, you really can’t go wrong with an activity cube. Toddlers love them.
What toys do your kids go bonkers for? I’d love to hear them.
