My two-year-old is OBSESSED with Moana. She wants to watch it every day and listen to the songs in the car. I’m sure your toddler is probably the same way. They tend to latch onto one thing and want to repeat it forever. So since our toddlers love Moana so much, we might as well buy them some toys. Who knows, maybe it will distract them from actually watching the movie for a day or two! (We can only hope.) Here are my top picks for Moana toys.
1. Moana Dress Up Costume
What better way to play Moana than to dress up like her! Bonus: this can double as a Halloween costume. It’s really meant for everyday play. I want to get this for Toot but it might be a little big on her right now. They only come in one size which fits your average 3-5 year old. But she’s in 3T clothes now so she’ll have plenty of room to grow into it.
Plus, if you buy this for a two-year-old to play pretend, you might want it a little big so they can throw it over their clothes.
The necklace!!! When I was a kid, Pocahontas was the thing. And I just wanted to wear the Pocahontas necklace. Now Moana is the thing and she has a cool necklace, too!
I may want this more than my daughter does. Hei Hei is my favorite character, and the screaming scene is still funny after 746 viewings of the movie. *Adds to my own wishlist*
4. Maui’s Hook
This hook lights up and makes swishing and ocean sounds! Plus, it’s sturdy so if your toddler has a habit of beating the hell out of their toys (like mine), they shouldn’t have a problem with this one.
5. Stuffed Pua
You know, Pua wasn’t in the movie for more than like a couple of minutes. He sure is cute, though!
Look how cool this is! Your toddler can relax and watch Moana island style. Some of the reviews say it wasn’t as big as they thought it would be, but they were buying it for an 8 year old. It’s perfect for toddler sized kids. Most of the people who bought it recommend under 40lbs.
Don’t tell my kid, but she’s getting this for Christmas. One of her favorite things to play is “tunnel” which means she likes to get under blankets and pretend she’s in a tunnel. I’m hoping my blankets can stay on my bed once I get her this!
8. Magic Ink Book
Awwww yessss. Mess free coloring. A parent’s favorite words. Bonus: this is pretty cheap. Could be a good stocking stuffer.
9. Toddler Moana Doll
I think we all identified our daughters with toddler Moana in the beginning of the movie. And I’m betting I’m not the only one that freaked out that she went into the water the first time I saw it. I swear that’s could’ve easily been how a horror movie begins. Anyway, look how cute this doll is!
10. Table and Chair Set
Toddler sized tables are perfect for coloring, playing, and even eating.
We have this Moana doll, and let me tell you how happy I am that her hair is all one piece of fabric and not a tangled mess. You know how Barbie hair or any other doll hair can get tangled or messed up in a matter of minutes? Not an issue with this doll. The hair is just a flowy piece of soft fabric. The whole doll is made of soft fabric so even the youngest toddlers can enjoy her. Plus, she’s a good nighttime sleep buddy because she won’t poke your kid in the middle of the night. Very cuddly.
Hooray for gross motor skill development toys! Also hand-eye coordination. My kid needs better hand-eye coordination.
Why is it that toddlers love to make loud noises? Well, here’s a toy that lets them get that all out of their system.
OMG. I WANT THIS. It’s a sail boat play house thingy! WANT WANT WANT!
Build your toddler’s memory skills with a memory game. Or at least let them look at the pretty Moana pictures and throw them under the couch. You know, best case scenario.
