2016 Hot Toys for Toddlers - Under $50

How is this holiday season already sneaking up on us?! I’m already flooded with toy catalogs and gift requests and it’s not even a month into fall. However, I do love coming up with a list early so that I can keep my eye out for deals over the coming months. These are the hottest toys that I’ve seen so far and a couple extras that you might be interested in adding to your list. Some are already favorites in my own house.

The best part is everything on this list is currently UNDER $50! 


2016 Top Gift Picks for Toddlers Under $50

Little Tikes Water Table ($32) | Melissa & Doug Dust, Sweep and Mop ($25) | Little Tikes Trampoline ($40)

Water tables and outside toys make great gifts to be used in the spring and summer of the coming year. The Little Tikes Water Table features 3 activity pieces and some balls and cups for accessories. The Melissa and Doug set is a huge hit at my house because it’s just like the real thing, only made for tiny helpers. 

2016 Top Gift Picks for Toddlers Under $50

Step2 Little Cooks Kitchen Playset ($49) | B. Toys TeePee ($39) | Kindle Fire HD ($49) 

The Step2 Kitchen is a great option for under $50. It has a bunch of the bells and whistles that its more pricey counterparts do at half the price. The B. Toys Teepee is super funky and even has a light! These are great for reading corners or hiding toys when not in use. And while I’m not totally pro-electronics for super little ones, I do think the Kindle Fire is a great option for learning games and long car rides. 

2016 Top Gift Picks for Toddlers Under $50

Fisher Price Code-a-Pillar ($40) | Fisher Price Sit n Stand Skyway ($40) | Little People Farm ($28)

My son got the Code-a-Pillar already for his birthday this year and we really love it. It’s one of the first STEM toys for his age range, and teaches ‘coding’ by having different ‘commands’ on each segment. He already knows how to put it together and make it go – and it’s a toy that will grow with him for years to come. The Sit n Stand Skyway looks really cool and can double for matchbox cars. Little People sets (like this farm) are always a hit!

2016 Top Gift Picks for Toddlers Under $50Burt’s Bees Pajamas ($20) | Vans – Toy Story Slip Ons ($42) | V Tech Treasure Mountain Train Adventure ($40)

Cozy pajamas like these by Burt’s Bees are super warm and made to last. I love asking for pajamas from friends and family because they get worn everyday and wear out so quickly! The Toy Story/Vans collaboration has been my favorite of the year – these Buzz ones are so cute. I normally would NEVER drop $40+ on shoes, but these ones are definitely worth the splurge for a great gift. Also – We already have a ton of V Tech Go!Go! and this new track looks like it’d be a lot of fun.

    I love all of these ideas. That water table – my kiddo would love it, except that season is ending. Wish I had one all summer long. The sweep and mop though? Yea that’s brilliant.
