Let’s face it: creating a gift list for toddlers is about as adventurous as trying to corral the toddlers themselves! Stocking stuffers for toddlers are even worse! Children age one through three vary greatly in their developmental abilities; even two kiddos the same age will demonstrate varying abilities. Bobby might be running and diving through the house at 15 months, while Billy, at the same age, is content to sit or gingerly walk.
Still, kids at this age have huge imaginations, plus they enjoy having a friend around (even if parallel play is the theme of the day), so finding stocking stuffers for toddlers to match their imaginations isn’t so daunting a task after all.
