Holiday Gift Ideas for Preschool Boys

Pre-School Gift Ideas for the Holidays

LeapTV (and me trying out the Bokeh photo effect)


The LeapFrog LeapTV Educational Gaming System is now selling for just $57.99 at most major retailers and on Amazon right now! You can now be the cool mom or aunt and gift little kiddos ages 3-8-years-old their first gaming system. Last year, LeapTV was retailing for $150, so this is really an exciting offer. As a LeapFrog Mom Ambassador, I was gifted a LeapTV to review and I'm planning on putting it under the tree for their Christmas gift. I can't wait to see them play it on X-Mas day.

Suggested LeapTV games to get for little ones: join Anna, Elsa and Olaf in a Frozen mathematics foray in Disney Frozen: Arendelle's Winter Festival Educational, Letter Factory, Blaze and Doodle Craft.

Play All Day Elmo from Hasbro  - $45Click on the link to read my previous post for more details on this hot new interactive toy.

Mega Bloks First Builders Build'n Go Wagon - $37.49 -  My boys Madrina (Godmother) gave us two wagons filled with these child's first building blocks last year and they are still being played with daily. Besides using the blocks to build, they love carting this wagon and each other in it all around the house, lol.


Green Toys Airplane - $7.49 - My boys were fighting over this classic toy plane to the point that I had to go out and buy another in a different color, so they'd each have one. It's also constructed entirely from recycled plastic and offers imaginative play. My boys love rolling it around on the floor and soaring it above their heads. I like that unlike other planes, there are no sharp edges and it's nice and lightweight too. Bonus, no sounds or high tech to deal with either.

Stocking Stuffers:


PlayTape by InRoad Toys: Entertain the kids for hours with PlayTape from InRoad Toys. PlayTape is repositionable tape designed to look like roads and train tracks that can be used on any flat surface without leaving any residue when removed. PlayTape is easily stored and great for travel. I'll put tracks up in hotel rooms and just pack two cars to go with it. Doesn't take up much space in your suitcase and provides kids with a toy while on-the-go. They even have Thomas the Train designs too. $7.99-12.99.

Hot Wheels cars. My boys can never seem to have enough. We have a lunch box tin full of them just for the car and when going out to eat.

Dry Erase Markers - I scored a rainbow pack at a Five Below store.

Crayons - They get broken so fast, that a fresh new box is always welcome. We particularly love Mr. Sketch Scented Twistable Crayons.

Jingle, Jingle, Little Reindeer Board Book by Parragon Books for only $6.99. Wiggle the cute reindeer puppet to help it get to Santa's sleigh on time! Since this is the first Christmas that the boys are really understanding and curious about stockings, reindeer and Christmas trees, this book helped introduce some of the holiday iconography to them.

  2. Lots of good ideas here! My daughter would love the Play All Day Elmo. She just celebrated her bday, so we're up to our ears in presents and she's not getting anything new for Chanukah. She's 2, so she doesn't even get it yet :)

  5. Oh I remember I used to always walk down the toy aisle and want a LeapFrog ANYTHING. I think it was always out of our price range, so I know that is an incredible deal for those!

  11. What a great list! I feel like my boys were so much easier to shop for when they were little. Now I'm scrambling to figure out what to get this (without breaking the bank).
