Ultimate Gift Guide: Non-Electronic Gifts for Young Children, Ages 0-6

Christmas is coming!

Even if you don’t have children of your own, most of us will be buying toys for the children in our life! We hope this comprehensive gift guide will give you some good ideas! As the title says, I’ve chosen to only share predominantly non-electronic toys! That’s because I’ve found through out the years that they last longer and get the most use, believe it or not! Kids will use their imaginations and explore the world around them with the special toys listed below! (Some of the toys do have electronic features, such as noises and lights, but the toys main function is interaction and imaginative play)

Activity Center/Tables

The two activity tables above are great because they will last for years and years. They have multiple functions. Starting out as activity centers for babies and turning into tables for toddlers and young children! I highly recommend these activity tables, especially for those with their first child who will get the most use out of these tables and don’t already have anything similar.

This cute little owl shape sorter is another great toy for babies and early toddlers!

3.PlanToys® Owl Shape Sorter

These smaller activity cubes/centers are another favorite! They will get years of use out of these. We have the B. toys one shown above and it’s definitely a favorite. B toys is a great brand that has withstood a lot of wear and tear from my two boys!

Music Maker

B. toys Parum Pum Pum

This joyful drum filled with lots of different musical instruments is sure to be a hit with any budding musician! My boys both enjoyed it thoroughly!

Bath Toy

B. toys Fish & Splish

I’m not sure why but, Parker has nicknamed this cute little guy Captain Cat-Cat. He LOVES this toy! It’s still in great shape and now Radley plays with it too. It’s honestly the only bath toy you’ll need and it’s great because it doubles as storage.

Ride On

VTech® Ultimate Alphabet Train

This ride on toy has so many great features! Babies will love putting the blocks in the top of the train and watching them come out the back!

Play-sets and Doll Houses

Playsets and Doll Houses

I was happily surprised when hearth and hand revealed its toy collection. They are so perfect and I can only imagine how happy children would be to receive these gifts. I am waiting another year or two before I get my boys a play tool bench, due to all of the pieces that come with it but, this one is seriously the perfect one! I hope it is still around when I’m ready to purchase.

The lil woodzeez house and tree house are so darling! The items and animals within the collection are well made. A perfect house to have the kids imagination going for hours.

If we didn’t already have a kitchen set we would definitely be purchasing the deluxe diner! How cute?! It’s the perfect gift for siblings! It has years of use in it and has a little table where they can enjoy snacks!

Teepees are always great and make the best places to snuggle up with your little one and a book.

Hands down the best $20 we every spent for the boys was the rocket ship tent below! It has gotten so much use out of it! It goes perfectly in their space themed room and houses all of their stuffed animals! The boys love to climb inside with all of their stuffed animal friends and go on adventures!
