Best Toys Ever (at least for an 18 month old)

Little People Noahs Ark

Little People Noah’s Ark

I’ve noticed that my most popular posts, as of today, have to do with age appropriate toys I have recommended. Since I haven’t done this in a while, I thought I’d suggest a few play items that have kept my 18 month old daughter well entertained.

  • Little People – My daughter will play with the Little People characters for hours.  She lines them up takes them all over the house.  She even placed “Noah” from “Noah’s Ark” in my suitcase as a memento while I was away on business.  Although there are all different varieties, she has gotten the most mileage from “Noah’s Ark” and “Santa”.  However, if you do not want to spend the money on the entire kit, you can buy small sets with just the animals which are really fun and great for “on-the-go” play.
  • Board Books – specifically ones with pictures (photos and drawings) of animals.
  • Baby dolls with removable clothes (or you can use your child’s small clothes).  Use your child’s old bottles and silverware (spoons, bowls, etc.) and let your child “feed” the baby.
  • We set up a little table with two chairs, one for Madeline and one for her dolls/bears and they have snack time together.  You’d think she’d died and gone to heaven!  She thinks it so cool to be a “big girl” and eat at a table without a bib or high chair.  However, we only give her dried foods…
  • Small stroller with a basket underneath for storing items (ie. sippy cup, toys) Doll Stroller
