Best Toys for Kids 2022

Santa Clause is coming to town… and he needs to know what the best toys for kids this holiday season are! We are rounding up our favorite children’s toys in the shop. Parents and Santa Clause—read on to learn about the best toys to gift the little ones this year.

First up—babies under one year old! If you read our recent blog post, “How to Play With Your Baby,” you know that there are many different ways to play with your little one, and those ways often do not include fancy toys.

Whale Plush by Jellycat

A simple stuffed animal typically keeps a baby entertained! Have you met Wally Whale? Part of our Jellycat plush offering, Wally is as cute as can be and comes in a deep-sea blue. Taking your baby and Wally down to the floor allows your little one to get tummy time while they play with this soft plush.

Good Night Jersey Shore book

Another great way to entertain your baby is through reading them a goodnight story! Have you discovered the publisher Good Night Books? They offer an array of bedtime stories that are perfect for children up to three years old. One of our favorite books of theirs is Good Night Jersey Shore. This sweet bedtime story features illustrations of the Jersey Shore that many of us call home, and is written by Adam Gamble and Mark Jasper. See the place we call home through your little one’s eyes with this beautiful book!

 Dinosaur Plush by Jellycat

So nice, we added it to the list twice! How about young children who are over a year old? What toys are best for them? We still love the brand Jellycat! Jellycat offers an array of plush toys and there is just the right one for every child. One of our other favorites is the Fossilly Stegosaurus! He comes in a dark green hue and features the softest handfeel. Fossily comes in a mini size and a regular size. Cuddling is his preferred pastime!

Check out all that the Jellycat brand has to offer, including toys for children of all ages, here.

 Pink Dump Truck by Green Toys

Additionally, Green Toys has some of the best sustainable toys for young kids. Their products are made of recycled plastic and manufactured in the USA. The Pink Dump Truck is one of our top picks of theirs. Adding a sweet twist on a classic toy, Green Toys managed to come up with the cutest toy truck out there. The best part about this pastel dump truck? The lavender dumper is mobile! Allow your little one to have her prettiest playtime yet with this eco-friendly toy.

Camping Set by Green Toys

Another adorable toy for children one year and up is the RV Camper Set, also from Green Toys. Your little one can experience the fun of camping without having to leave the comfort of your home! This set includes two animal figurines, a boat, truck, camper, picnic table, and chairs. What more could you ask for from a camping trip? Okay… maybe some smores would be nice!

Shop & Cafe by Le Toy Van

We love the brand Le Toy Van for children two years old and up. They offer unique, beautiful, and high-quality toys for young kids. The brand has everything from a cash register to help your little one learn to count money, to a customizable play pizza, exercising your child’s creativity. However, if you are looking to surprise your kid with something big and exciting, we adore their Shop & Café. It is the perfect piece for pretend play, inviting your little one to explore all the possibilities that come with having their own kiosk. It includes a striped fabric overhang, market tote, and chalkboard ‘open’ sign. It is complete with a sweet bell that hangs at the top. Sets from Le Toy Van like the vegetable crate and the crate of sweets pair seamlessly with this beautiful Shop.

Barbarossa Pirate Ship by Le Toy Van

Likewise, Le Toy Van has a great offering for children three years old and up as well. Their Barbarossa Pirate Ship is elegant at first sight, featuring deep red and gold accents throughout—however, turn the lights off and you are in for a surprise! The skulls printed on the sails are glow-in-the-dark. Your little one is sure to be in amazement once they discover this fun find.

 Blue Bird Cottage by Le Toy Van

In search of a grandiose gift for a little girl? Look no further—Le Toy Van has got your back! The Blue Bird Cottage is the best gift for an imaginative child.
