The winter holidays are just around the corner and smart parents are making their list and checking it twice. If you’re stuck for a Christmas toy for toddler boys, consider these rough, active, imaginative toys that will still be gentle on your holiday budget.
Christmas Boys Toys – Stride-to-Ride Dino
from Fisher Price, $39.99
This cute green dino does double-duty as a walker and a scooting rider to entertain a child for years. As a walker, fun lights, sounds, and songs encourage toddlers to keep going; slide the legs together and lock into place when they’re ready for ride-on fun. Kids will love to scoot around to watch the dino’s head bob up and down. Parent reviews of the stride-to-ride dino like the durability, stability, and ease of assembly and switching between walker and rider mode. Recommended for toddlers nine months to three years.
Toddler Boys Top Holiday Toys – Disney Dance Star Mickey
from Fisher Price, $69.99
Dance Star Mickey reviews say that this hot holiday toddler toy is the Tickle Me Elmo. Mickey walks, turns, moonwalks, and sings six different songs when kids touch his foot. Toddlers can enjoy dancing along, and when they’re ready for an interactive game they can try out “Freeze Dance” and “Mickey Says.” Includes six AA batteries for hours of dancing fun right out of the box. When they’re all tired out, toddlers can cuddle the plush Mickey Mouse wherever they go. Recommended for toddlers 18 months and up.
Boys Toys for Christmas– Spinnin’ Sounds Speedway
from Fisher Price, $29.99
Durable and sturdy, this colorful molded plastic playset is great for any car-loving toddler boy. Cars whip around the spinning disc and down through the finish line, activating lights, music, and racetrack sounds as they go. The set includes two race cars that rattle when the toddler shakes them; extra cars can be purchased separately. Parent reviews of the Spinnin’ Sounds Speedway most often complained about the volume of the set, saying it was too loud for younger children. (A piece of duct tape placed over the speaker dampens the sound.) Recommended for babies six months and up.
Holiday Gift Ideas for Toddlers – Sing-A-Ma-Jigs
from Fisher Price, $12.99
Their voices may remind parents of Alvin and the Chipmunks crossed with an alien, but brightly-colored Sing-A-Ma-Jigs dolls are irresistable fun for toddlers. Huggable, holdable Sing-A-Ma-Jigs open their mouths wide to talk, jabber, or sing when toddlers squeeze their bellies. Choose from red, teal, pink, or yellow – or get all four and listen to them harmonize with each other. Recommended for ages three and up.
Gearing up for the holidays means finding the best Christmas toys of the year. There’s nothing better than watching a child unwrap a gift that he’ll play with all year long, and you can’t go wrong with these gift ideas for toddler boys for the holiday season.
