Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Toddlers

The Christmas season is upon us and it’s time to start preparing your stash of great gifts and stocking stuffers for your toddlers and preschoolers.

If you’re looking for some great stocking stuffer ideas for toddlers and preschoolers, I have done all the work for you!

All you have to do is search through and find something you know your kiddo(s) will love, order, and be done!

The links I am giving you are for Amazon. We have Amazon Prime, and we love so many things about it.

The thing we love the most is free 2-day shipping. I don’t always have the time to load the kids in the car, drive 30 minutes to the store, get the kids out, grab what I need, get the kids back into the car, drive 30 minutes home, unload the kids out of the car, and be done.

Phew…. That made me tired just typing it. Ha!

Hopefully, this list will be all you need to get your Christmas shopping started off with just the click of the mouse.

1. 3 Bees and Me Magnet Boat Set






We bought this recently for our toddlers and they LOVE them!

They are colorful, magnetic, and numbered, so there are plenty of things to talk about and teach them. They are great for water play, but they can also be used as play boats in general.

The magnets are very magnetic and attract and detract from one another well. They could easily be taken out of the box and placed into a stocking for your toddler or preschooler.

2. Little Tikes Bath Letters and Numbers


We have a couple of sets of these that our kids LOVE to play with. They are great for the bathtub but they can also be used as a pool toy outside in the summer, or just used as a general play toy in the playroom.

We work on letter identification, color identification, and identify the letter of our first names. This would be a great stocking stuffer idea for your toddlers!

3. Melissa and Doug On the Go WOW! Pads

I am a HUGE fan of Melissa and Doug Products. If you haven’t noticed, I like to find things that my kids will enjoy playing with, but also that will teach them something.

Melissa and Doug products are fabulous!

These Water WOW! Books include a water pen that your kids use to color the pictures in the book. The water pen will then begin to slowly reveal the picture underneath.

The coolest part as a parent is that there is MINIMAL if any mess involved and this toy can be used OVER and OVER AGAIN! These are great for traveling with your kids as well!

4. Animal Safari 3-n-1 Card Game


This is a fantastic stocking stuffer for the little animal lover.

Teaching kids how to identify things that are alike at a young age is super powerful for their growth and development later on.

As they begin to learn to match, they build up their confidence in their ability to learn, and that is huge. Another way we like to use games like this is to work on learning all of the animals and their sounds. These cards are the perfect size to fit in a Christmas stocking.



5. Boley 12-pk Educational Dinosaur Toys


It doesn’t matter if you have boys or girls, dinosaurs are timeless and cool. They are a creature that once roamed the earth, and there is so much to learn about.

Sure, their names may be hard to pronounce, but there are so many special characteristics about each one that makes them unique. I think dinosaurs are great teachers when it comes to teaching kids that being different and unique is super cool! These will fit nicely in your preschooler’s Christmas stocking.



6. LeapFrog Scout’s Learning Lights Remote


Funny story! We found one of these in our rental van while on vacation. It happened at the perfect time too when our youngest was throwing a fit.

Needless to say, it entertained until we arrived at our destination. It has lights, sounds, and PLENTY of buttons to push. It’s the perfect size to fit in a stocking for Christmas!



7. Playskool Flash Cards


I think every kiddo needs a couple of sets of basic flashcards. They can learn things like numbers, letters, colors, shapes- the basics. Although these might not be your kiddo’s favorite gift on Christmas morning, you’ll get hours worth of learning and fun out of them in the long run.

It’s a great indoor activity to do with your kiddo by teaching them some basic preschool concepts.

8. Play Circle by Battat- Princess Purse Set

Every little girl needs a purse and accessories. And this has it all! Lipstick, sunglasses, makeup, car keys, a phone, and much more.

If your little diva needs to release all of her sass, this is a great Christmas stocking stuffer for her!



9. Matchbox 9 Car Gift Set


For the little man in your life, this Matchbox car gift set is sure to please.

Every little boy loves to have his very own set of Matchbox cars.

Each is unique in its features and colors.

If you have more than one little guy in your life, this box can be shared between several stockings!



10. Fat Brain Toys Wooden Personalized Puzzle


I’m going to round out our list of awesome Christmas stocking stuffer ideas for toddlers and preschoolers with this personalized name puzzle!

There is something SUPER special about receiving a gift with your name on it. This is an awesome puzzle, that also gives your kiddo the chance to learn how to spell their own name!


11. Wooden Apple Threading Toy



Toddlers and preschoolers LOVE to fidget with things. There is no right or wrong way to thread this worm through the apple, which means there are endless possibilities.


12. Melissa and Doug Sticker Farm


My kids LOVE this sticker farm. They have played with it so much that *MOST* of the stickers don’t stick anymore, and they STILL play with it. If you have a little sticker lover, this is an awesome stocking stuffer for your toddler.


13. Toddler Activity Quiet Book



I feel like the words “toddler” and “quiet” don’t often go together. My toddlers are rarely quiet. This quiet book is a fantastic gift to put in a toddler stocking. The best part is that it can go anywhere because it can be washed in the laundry machine.


14. Water Paint Alphabet Cards


Another one of my kids’ favorite toys involves water and coloring. What once seems invisible suddenly appears with the addition of water. They make many other varieties other than just the alphabet.


15. Wikki Stix


Wikki stix are new to me. I didn’t even know what they were until my kids were given them at a restaurant. Obviously, make sure you aren’t giving these to a little one who is putting random things in their mouth. These are sure to keep your toddler busy for a while.



The Best Stocking Ideas for Toddlers- Which is Your Favorite?

This list of stocking stuffers is going to be hard to beat! As a mom of a couple of toddlers and preschoolers, I know what types of things you’re likely looking for and I compiled a simple list for you to explore!
