My Audio Stories

This is such a wonderful gift idea that lasts a long time and is so sweet! Your child can listen to a story being read to them by audio pets or you can record your own voice and share it! The books are so sweet and fun. This would be a great grandparent gift idea or one to send to family. I always love giving books for gifts!

Gelli Baff

Just add water to a tub or an individual container to make a fun sensory gel fun for kids. You can add this in the bathtub for kids as well. We used this with my youngest and he LOVED it. We also made some in large tubs for more sensory play. You can add plastic animals or spoons for hours of fun! It’s non-toxic and does not stain. They also have a slime one that is so fun too.

Osmo Creative Starter Kit (for IPAD)

best toys of 2019

We have the Osmo genius version and it’s still such a great learning game that is so fun. This creative starter kit comes with so many hand held pieces bringing action to life. This does not come with an IPAD but it works on most IPADS you already have. Also, you don’t need WIFI for this to work! This would be great for boys or girls. It would also make a great gift for boy siblings if you ever buy a joint present for someone.


Besides books, I love giving my kids games! MindWare has some of the BEST games for kids. Check out some of these we are getting (and giving!) as gift ideas.
