With such a range of products out there for toddlers + preschoolers, it can be hard to know what will be most meaningful + played with in the long run. Here are a few ideas of items that are high-quality, hold your child’s interest + will last!
My mom collected Steiffs as a girl in the 60’s and has passed on a few of her own to Stella. And this Leo is just too adorable to pass up.
It’s no secret that I’m nothing short of obsessed with Boden for kids + this cardigan is just darling. Pair with a dress, cords or a skirt…I really don’t think you can go wrong!
Stella has the toy farmhouse from Magnolia and she not only plays with it daily, but I am impressed at the quality! This toy schoolhouse is in stock, but keep your eyes open for the dollhouse, cottage, apartment, treehouse, barn, a-frame cabin + because they often get restocked!
My kids could play hospital for days on end. I love this wooden doctor’s bag set that is sure to encourage creative, open-ended play in your home, too!
This Dino World is such a great set to either start your Magna-Tile collection or add on to it. You can also find other sets like a princess castle, farmyard barn, arctic animals + a royal castle.
Stella was the preschooler who put everything into bags + bins + toted them around the house. This luggy was the perfect way to help her bring her toys around + she still uses it at age 6! Beautiful + well-constructed, you can’t go wrong with the Olli Ella Luggy.
Tiny worlds always feel so magical + this small fairy tale playbox is no exception. It’s not only beautiful but the wooden pieces are made to last. Check out the construction set, enchanted ballet, + dino set, too!
Alimrose makes beautiful handcrafted dolls that are heirloom-quality. Stella has the most precious ballerina from them + this one is so cheery. These are not only sizable, but also made with the nicest cotton-linen threads that will last forever.
This putt-putt set is not only great for hand-eye coordination but a great way to keep the kids moving in the winter. We had a little putting green setup in our last playroom + the kids always played with it. I love the little obstacles that are a part of this cute set!
