It’s that time of year again. But where you’d usually be hitting the shops looking for all your Christmas goodies, this year you’re going to have to do things a little differently. With lock-downs in place all over the world, most of your Christmas shopping will have to be done online. So to make things a little easier for you, I’ve compiled a list of the best Amazon stocking fillers for toddlers.
There’ll be no trudging the cold, wet streets and fighting through the crowds trying to get your hands of the latest toy. This year you can snuggle up on the sofa, hot toddy in hand, and with a few simple clicks the Christmas shopping is taken care of. What more could you want for Christmas?
With so many stocking stuffers ideas for toddlers, you might end up having to order a few more Christmas stockings too, though.
Stocking Fillers Under £5
Release his inner artist in the bath with these easy to hold crayons. Kids love to draw on anything that isn’t paper, but that’s fine with these crayons. They easily wipe clean and don’t leave any marks. Give your kid the freedom to get creative.
This cute little caterpillar will keep them busy in the bath while helping to build their hand-eye coordination. Each cup has a different function, and they stack together neatly for easy storage. It’ll be their new best bath buddy.
Your little one will have fun making everyone jump with these funny pop-up monster toys. Great for messing with the grandparents.
An oldie but a goodie. Every kid should own a whoopie cushion. I know my boy thinks it’s the funniest thing in the world when he pops, so being able to make everyone else pop on demand will definitely keep him entertained for a while.
Get everyone involved with a fun little snail race. They’re cute, colourful and they sure can move.
These spiky little balls will get you in the party mood. Switch the lights off and watch the balls light up when thrown. The dog will think it’s his Christmas present too.
They’ll love feeling like a Rockstar, as long as you can put up with an echoey rendition of “The Wheels On The Bus” a hundred times on Christmas day.
Great for their languages skills, these cards can be turned into a fun learning game that you can enjoy together.
If they still refuse to brush their teeth with these cool little Peppa Pig toothbrushes then you really have no hope. Try putting the Peppa tooth brushing song on, who knows, it might help.
You can’t really buy them too much Peppa Pig stuff at this age. And this neat little colouring book comes with its own crayons.
So they’re too young for proper jewellery, but there’s no need for them to miss out. They’ll love dressing up in these cute little wooden bracelets.
Stocking Stuffers Under £10
These Water Flutes great way to introduce an instrument into your child’s life. They change note depending on how much water is in them. They’re great fun to experiment with and make some beautiful bubbly music.
I’ll be honest, this fishing game is addictive, and not just for the kids. Give them a challenge and build their coordination skills in the bath.
There are lots of things to be learned from these educational eggs. The facial expressions can help kids identify emotions. Each egg is a different colour inside. And they are noisy and fun too.
Get your phone back off them by giving them this educational kid’s phone. They’ll love having one of their own and at least it’ll stop you getting surprised every time they accidentally order something from yours.
Another bath game, this time shooting hoops. You’ll notice a pattern here, but whatever makes it easier to get my boy in the bath, I’m on board with.
Another classic, finger puppets. Most of the kid’s toys nowadays are all lights and noises. It’s nice to have something that is simple and will encourage them to use their imagination more.
I love the design of this little tea set. It’s a shame they don’t do them in a real version. I’d buy one.
These water colouring books are great. They can be used over and over again and you don’t have to worry about felt tips on the sofa.
I remember these games when I was a kid. I look at it now and think what did I see in that. But I remember having a whale of a time mismatching the cards. I thought I was hilarious back then so I’m sure my son will enjoy it now.
If they want to help but all their doing is getting under your feet then get them to make their own mince pies and Christmas puds out of play dough.
Stocking Fillers Under £15
Stickle bricks take me back. They are still really fun and it doesn’t hurt quite as much standing on a stickle brick as it does a piece of lego.
Zips, buttons, belts. They’re all handy skills to learn, and the best thing is that they’ll be sitting in one place while they practice.
Getting them to wear gloves can be tricky. So trick them into it with these cool light-up ones. They’ll look great while busting a few robot moves.
Give a little nod to yesteryear with these retro wind-up Christmas toys.
If you’ve got a budding chef at home give them a little encouragement with their own, baby-hand sized utensils
Reminds me of Big. You’ll be cutting up the floor on this one. You’ll probably have a very stroppy toddler demanding that you let them have their turn.
Ok, it might drive you crazy. And it’s probably too big to fit in the stocking. But it’s very cute, and every kid deserves to make some noise at Christmas.
This gorgeous little night light will help them relax after a very stimulating day. It’s so pretty you’ll want to sleep in their room.
Another excellent way to get them drawing without worrying about the mess.
My boy is obsessed with construction toys. This set will probably end up being his favourite present. Not bad for less than 15 quid.
Pour yourself a drink. Hop online, and start your Christmas shopping. I hope my list of Amazon stocking fillers for toddlers has given you some ideas and helped you out a bit.
2020 has been really stressful for everyone, but at least the Christmas shopping will be a bit less stressful this year.
