Our Favorite Summer Toys for Toddlers
Summer is OFFICIALLY upon us and we are rounding up some of our favorite summer toys for toddlers (starting at $1o!) One of the biggest trends is the giant food pool float. We couldn’t get enough of them. We found many of them at at 5 below. If you want to be a hit when going to a summer party with toddlers, bring one of these for the host!
- Hello Kitty Inflatable Pool: The flowers spray water and for $30, it’s a blast. This one has lasted us several summers. One of our favorite summer toys for toddlers for sure!
- Diving Sticks: Depending on how old your toddler is, our 4 year olds, live for these diving sticks.
- B. Sands Ahoy Medium Bucket Set: What would a summer list be without a sand set! Whether for the beach or for the sandbox, we love this colorful set from B.toys! Our girls (age 2) have been loving sandcastles this year!
- Peg-Perego John Deere Mini Power Loader: We have a Peg-Perego car and love it! This specific one is made for kids 2+ and is on sale for $144! Such a fun summer toy for a variety of ages.
- Intex Royal Castle Baby Pool: We can never get over Intex’s great value – we love this pool for the babies.. adorable, shaded, and not too large! Search “Intex” on Amazon and you will find tons of options for pools for the kids (and rafts for you!)
- Joovy Tricycoo: We are obsessed with this trike and the fact that its usage starts at 10 months and is for kids over 3 too! It’s convertible and goes from a parent push option to a full trike for the kiddos to ride themselves. Padded and has a UV canopy too! We think it’s a total deal (even full price at $130) considering you can use it for over 3 years, and some older models are currently on sale for $89!
- Plan Toys Floating Island (and other water toys): One of our emerging favorite toy lines – sustainable, earth-friendly toys and the kids LOVE them. Some great options for water play, and we were immediately drawn to this floating island for the pool!
- Ambi Fishing Boat: Another fave from fan-favorite Ambi toys. This toy has been a blast in the bath and is already being brought outside to the water table!
- Natural Earth Paint for Kids: These paints are SO much fun and beautiful colors – we used them on the sidewalk, street, and on trees and they wash off.
- GeoSafari My First Telescope: For a starry summer night, we think this is a fun way to educate kids on the wonders of space from a young age
- Step2 Finding Dory Water Table: The cutest water table ever! We love Finding Nemo and what is better than a fish themed water table. Step2 has some of our very favorite outdoor products (including our table set, sand and water table, and playhouse)
- GeoSafari Turtle Excavator: This is a fun way to encourage science at a young age – whether it be in a local lake, beach, pool, or even sandbox. These products are super reasonably priced as well.
- Melissa & Doug sprinkler (just $16 on sale!): Need a sprinkler for a summer list, and this one is a great value and super cute too.
- SkipHop Light up Surfer water toy (just $10): We love these fun water toys for pool or bath play, and the price point is awesome.
- SkipHop Zoo Stack & Pour buckets (5 for $10!): Such a great gift idea – can’t believe you get 5 for $10. We are thinking a great birthday favor for a summer party.
We also love picking up odds & ends at the Dollar Store & 5 Below – anything from actual water toys and floats to sponges to play with in the water table. What are your favorites?
