Toddler Toys for Boys
It’s really tough to choose what toddler toys and games are appropriate for a preschool boy’s gift? Will it stand up to his rough play and will he be entertained or educated by it?
These are questions that run through the minds of every parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle and friend who wants a gift for that favorite little boy. Many toys look like they are for a certain age group, and yet there are small parts that could still pose a choking hazard, or, in some cases of the very rambunctious child – throwing hazards.
Having a little bulldozer for a nephew, I had to start looking around for something I would feel assured was a good gift choice for him, and his parents peace of mind. The choices are endless, trucks, workbenches, dinosaurs, airplanes and many old favorites that are still around that I remember from when my older children were his age.
Since I was on a roll shopping around, I realized I had compiled quite a gift list to share and review with his parents – and thought I would share the findings with you too. I’m sure you will find something perfect for that little guy – check out this selection:
