What’s one of the most fun memories of your childhood? I bet it involved ball pits. All kids love ball pits.

And there’s more than just one use for them! Here are 5 things you can do with ball pit balls.
Do you have a toddler or preschooler obsessed with Peppa Pig too? I swear my three-year-old is slowly becoming British thanks to this show. I’ve been able to tear her away from the screen with some fun Peppa Pig toys that allow her to use her imagination and pretend. Here are our favorites!
If you have a toddler or a preschooler, you probably sing Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood songs in your sleep. Daniel Tiger is life.

Have you gotten to the pretending stage of toddlerhood yet? I had forgotten how much fun pretend games can be until Toot started to show interest in pretending.

So what kind of pretending games can you play with your toddler? Here are 17 ideas to get you started!
I. Love. Stuffed. Animals. There I said it. If I could own 150 stuffed animals, I would. (Actually, we might own 150.) But they make great gifts for babies and toddlers. (or 30-year-olds like me.) I’ve compiled a huge list of stuffed animals and characters from Daniel Tiger to Disney that will bring a smile to any little one’s face this Christmas or for their birthday!
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.

Here are a few ideas for you!
