I compiled a list of the top children's books and gifts that toddlers love all in one place plus some not-so-common books that are amazing!

Not all toddler toys are created equal.

When it comes to toys for kids, I believe that LESS is more.

I believe in investing in a few higher quality toys that will last. (Hand-me-down toys are great, too!)

I believe in purchasing open-ended toys that allow for creativity and can be combined and used in endless ways.

In general, I do not advocate for purchasing toys that have flashing lights, music, and require batteries.

I believe that active toys make passive learners and passive toys make active learners.
