Can I tell y’all about the one thing in our house that every member of our family absolutely loves playing with? (Well, with the exception of Dempsey, but he gets a pass because he’s only four weeks old and doesn’t know what things are yet 😉 I’m confident he will love this one day!)
This is something that Wilson and Lily Ryan love playing with together, and something Price and I love playing with with them! I’ll be honest, there have been multiple times where Price and I have played with these after the kids have gone to sleep. They’re that fun! Plus they’re good for motor skills, creativity, and just all around GOOD!
This everyone-will-love-it item is a set of MAGNA-TILES! Magna-Tiles are colorful geometric “tiles” that are magnetized on the edges. They click together to form beautiful structures or patterns! Our kids particularly love using the long triangle pieces to make “pizzas” that they can serve anyone within earshot, and they also particularly love using the square pieces to see how high of a tower they can make before it falls over (or before one of them knocks it over…)
If there is one thing I could suggest buying for a toddler / preschool age / even elementary age kid in your life, it is definitely these tiles! I have actually asked grandparents to give our kids more of these for Christmas because they’re so fun, and they’ve gotten so good at building large structures that we are running out of building pieces with just one set!
Now these things are not cheap– they’re over $100 a set— BUT I’m telling you, they are so worth it! And guess what?! Magna-Tiles has been kind enough to share a 10% discount code with y’all this Christmas season if you order directly from their site! That code is MT10.
They are also available on Amazon, but the discount code isn’t usable there. But hey, if you need them quickly, they are available for Prime shipping which probably makes up for the 10% you’d save on their direct site!
What are your top recommendations for toddler/preschooler gifts? I’m all ears for some good, cute, educational, fun gift ideas for littles!
