2022 Holiday Gift Guide | For Kids 3 - 8
I'm all about making shopping easy - that's why every picture you see on this post is a clickable, direct link to a listing on Amazon.
I have experience with everything on this list and if there was something I didn't like, I wouldn't recommend it to you. Happy shopping!
Tonies | Audio-Only Activity
Tonies offers bundles that features a collection of favorite character Tonies plus the Toniebox in a wide variety of colors. If the child on your list already has a Toniebox you can purchase Tonies (the figures) individually! Tonies offers a wide range of characters!
Osmo | Educational Screentime
Osmo has games for sale for children ages 3 to 10. They offer "Math Wizard: Magical Workshop" perfect for ages 6 to 8. And Reading Adventure for children 5 to 7!
Readyland | Alexa-Interactive Reading Activity
"Alexa, open Readyland!" those are the magic words that will open your child to a story world where characters ask questions and respond! Alexa devices play the story while your child follows along - currently there are three books available; "Jack and the Beanstalk", "3 Little Pigs" and "A Playdate with Rosie and Ricky".
STEM Learning | Tile Block Sets
Toys that allow for open-ended really help children grown and develop creatively! There are two magnetic tile sets my kids love:
First is Squaregles - this set allows for children to draw pictures on provided cardboard pieces that then snap into magnetic tiles making their drawings become part of their structure! The "Warmup Set" also includes two adorable little figurines called an Oggs that can be placed inside of the provided "Ogg Car" and roll down the ramp piece included in the box!
Next is Magformers - these tiles in this kit, together can create a magnetic ball your child can use as many or as little as they want to build whatever they want! The rainbow colored tiles come shaped like squares and triangles.
House Monsters | Plush Toy
Explain those bumps in the night and ease your child's fear about "monsters" in the house with the adorable plush line, House Monsters! Each monster is sold separately and comes with their own sturdy habitat; the pink, Blushy lives in the bathroom, Munchy lives in the fridge and Sudsy (who resembles an octopus) lives in the dishwasher! These monsters are too silly to be scary and are super cuddly!
The Magic of Me | Children's Books Series
"The Magic of Me" series by Becky Cummings provides kids with personal affirmations in an easy to understand, rhyming book. I cannot speak highly enough of this series. We have every single book and each book features full color illustrations with an inclusive cast of characters.
Children's TV on DVD
Children's fan-favorite characters are available on DVD! These two DVDs make for great holiday gifts because they are holiday themed.
Sesame Street: My Favorite Holidays covers a wide variety of the holidays including Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas is this 2 hr compilation!
Nick Jr.: Holiday Bonanza features holiday and winter themed episodes of Blue's Clues & You!, PAW Patrol, Baby Shark's Big Show! and more!
