Toddlers soak up the world around them like a sponge, so it’s important to foster their curiosity with toys that are educational, engaging and (most of all) fun! Whether they’re into “CoComelon” or “Bluey,” sports or music, colors and shapes, or letters and numbers, you want to give them toys that they’ll love engaging with. And, in turn, you’ll love that they’re secretly learning while they play, and forming a solid knowledge base with all the key skills they’ll need as they grow.
Fortunately for all toddler parents, Walmart just released The Top Toys List for the upcoming holiday season and it’s full of awesome picks for all types of kids — and your curious toddler is no exception. Walmart made it easy to browse The Top Toys List by age, so you can find all the best stuff for your little one to learn and grow. You can also sort the list by price range to make sure you keep within your holiday shopping budget. That shouldn’t be too hard, though, since Walmart always has great low prices on everything.
As you already know, parenting a toddler can get a little hectic, which is why Walmart also makes it easy to get your child’s toys — and everything else you order — shipped to your door in as little as two days. Or, if you need your items faster and they’re available at a Walmart store near you, you can opt to pick them up instead, free of charge.
8 Walmart Toys for the Curious Toddler
To help you find the best toys to foster your toddler’s curiosity, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite top toys that you can get at Walmart right now.
Cocomelon Boo Boo JJ
This “CoComelon” plush features JJ once again — but this time, the little tot comes complete with light-up ouchies. His head, elbow, knee or foot may be achy at any given time, and it’ll be up to your toddler to cure his boo boos by placing a bandage over the proper place. It’s a great toy for hand-eye coordination and matching skills, all the while teaching your tot compassion and kindness, too.
My Pal Scout Smarty Paws Customizable Puppy
This award-winning LeapFrog plush is not only cute and cuddly, but it’s also incredibly interactive and educational for little minds. Pressing its ears will play one of 40 songs, lullabies and melodies, and its touch-sensitive front paws cue the pup to play music, games and mindfulness exercises. The reactions stop when your toddler lets go of the paws, teaching them a valuable lesson of cause and effect. The pup can even be programmed with your child’s name and their favorite food, color and animal for a really fun, personalized experience.
Spark. Create. Imagine. CoComelon School Bus Ride-On
This little ride-on schoolbus is the perfect toy to help toddlers develop a love for learning. It has 36 interactive buttons that teach all the letters of the alphabet, the numbers 1–9, and five CoComelon nursery rhymes. They can even pull out the stop sign, open the door and honk the horn as they ride around the house. There’s also ample storage under the seat that will allow them to tote their favorite toys around with them.
Little Tikes TotSports Kids T-Ball Set
This playset comes with an oversized bat and balls and a sturdy tee, making it the perfect introduction to the game of baseball for your little homerun hitter. The height of the tee is adjustable, too, so it can accommodate multiple kids of different ages or grow with your child as their skills develop. Not only can it help them work on hitting homers, it can also help to improve their motor skills and coordination.
Bluey Dance and Play 14 inch Animated Plush
“Bluey” is another top-rated toddler TV show, and this dancing plush really brings the animated pup to life. She hops, waves, dances and says more than 55 phrases, so your toddler will love making conversation and singing along to four different songs. She can also play three games — Statues, Dance Mode and Copycat — to keep your little one active. And, when it’s time to settle down, Bluey’s soft fabrics, plush filling and just-right size make her the perfect companion for cuddle time.
Radio Flyer 4-in-1 Stroll ‘n Trike with Activity Tray
Your little one can still benefit from educational activities while they move thanks to this convertible tricycle that’s made to grow with them for years. At 12 months, you can help push them around as they learn to work the pedals — they’ll enjoy playing with all the shapes and sounds on the activity tray in front of them (and learn motor skills while they’re at it). As they get a little older, the Radio Flyer can be converted into a steering trike, then a learn-to-ride trike and, finally, a classic trike when they’re ready to ride around on their own.
Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Sports Activity Center
If you’re looking to round out your toddler’s athletic inclinations even further, this fun 4-in-1 activity center offers multiple sports for them to enjoy. It includes basketball, soccer and baseball toys, plus a pretend concession stand to throw in some early marketing and sales skills. (Just kidding. Kind of.) The light-up, interactive scoreboard adds even more fun with sounds and songs, and your toddler can learn the alphabet, counting, shapes and more through three Smart Stages learning levels.
Cocomelon Glow Time JJ
“CoComelon” is one of the hottest shows out there — at least if you ask any toddler — so what better addition could there be to their sleepytime routine than this snuggly plush version of their bestie JJ? He glows like a nightlight, he sings and says stuff like “Sleep tight” when you press his tummy, and he’s wearing his favorite whale onesie that’s super-soft to the touch. They’ll love learning and singing along to JJ’s lullabies, and hopefully, he’ll help them learn to love bedtime and naptime, too!
