The ultimate wish list for toddlers is a game changer. Gone are the days where we are swaddling our babes, we enter the world of the little movers and shakers. I collaborated with The Baby Cubby to round up my own toddler wish list.
Here’s a great mom tip: use online baby registries to save your favorite toddler must-haves and share it with all those people who love to spoil your little one (like on their first birthday). The fact is that toddlers need a whole slew of new things.
The Baby Cubby Wish List For Toddlers
The Baby Cubby Wish List For Toddlers
Invest in some toys for your little one. PlanToys My First Camera is probably my most favorite toy right now. I love the kaleidoscope view finder it reminds me of one of my childhood toys and has that nostalgic feel. My oldest son used to carry around a small toy dog when he was in the toddler stage, It was soft and cuddly and most certainly a toy that he had the longest. Investing in a soft cuddly friend for my daughter was on my wish list for her early on. I am currently loving the Mary Meyer Talls Unicorn, everyone raves that it is the softest and cuddliest stuffed animal. If your little is not banging on a drum, they better be making music on this Skip Hop Giraffe Safari Crocodile Xylophone.
My mom always reminds me that my little one is only going to be small for so long and I need to stay in the moment. These accessories remind me of just that, a little mini me toddling around in their stylish little gear. The Jack and Winn 5-Panel hat is not only stylish, but will keep your babe in the shade. If you follow along on my daughters style, you know she lives in headbands. I have to give it to Baby Bling Headband for their adorable one size fits all and versatile headbands. And because jewelry looks so cute on tiny wrists, I am obsessed with the June and Penny bracelets for special occasions.
Reading Is Fun
Half of my friends are elementary school teachers, so they will seriously appreciate my love for reading with my toddler. If your little one doesn’t have a favorite book yet, the illustrations in the BabyLit Books are amazing. Story time is our favorite evening ritual and the perfect way to establish a routine and encourage your toddler to enjoy reading.
Everyone’s gotta eat
Why not make it a little less messy with a Bumkins Nixi Junior Bib and the EZPZ Mini Mat. I haven’t met a toddler yet, who isn’t a messy eater, trust me you will appreciate these must haves. I am also obsessed with Puj PhillUp Kids Cups with Grippy Hook. No more sink filled with thirty-billion cups. These cups hang neatly at the fridge and can be hung back after each use. So there is no need for “another cup”. Make sure you have a Skip Hop Grab Go Baby Food Storage Tower for on the go with your toddler. I don’t know about you, but my kids always want a snack. The storage tower is perfect for options and carries enough snacks for all day long.
When my toddlers gained more independence, they would wear themselves out to the point that they fought there sleep and couldn’t get comfortable. Don’t give up on swaddling muslins just yet. They are perfect transition blankets and become the perfect lovies to help soothe your babe. I’m loving the Little Unicorn Single Cotton Swaddle Mermaid.
Walk This Way
Do you know that babies take those first steps easiest when they are barefoot and not in a bulky shoe? The Freshly Picked Moccasins are perfect for keeping your babe in a light shoe while they perfect that walking stage.
Toddlers need comfortable and fun wardrobe essentials. Invest in some comfy pieces that are still fashion forward like this Rags to Raches dress or the uber popular Rags rompers. My daughter lives in these rompers and I’m not even kidding when I say they should come up with an adult line. Leggings are another must have in the wardrobe department. Toddling babes will love Lulu and Roo Leggings and I can’t even with the cuteness of this matching floral print hoody.
