Toy for three year old

Hello!

New to this community and frankly need to just get a little advice. I am meeting my cousins three year olds (twins!) for the first time and for their birthday party next week and need to bring toys. What are your favorite toys for your toddlers ideally in the $15 - $30 range?

Thanks for the advice. Really appreciate your help!!

Craft supplies, preferrably things that wash out.
Basic balls (not for older kids, like basketballs or footballs)
My kids loved magnetic block things then, and for years. Magnetiles was one brand I remember. Essentially 2-D blocks you could also arrange 3D because they were magnetic (and very colorful).
Any take-off on blocks that allows imaginative building,. Cloassic unit blocks are really expensive.
One of my kids was into puzzles at that age, the other not as much.

I love toys, there are lots of them you can get:

- Play dough and cooking sets

- Lego or wood block pieces (a 100-piece set will cost less than $20)

- Crayons and coloring books

- Tricycles (I recommend this toddler tricycle guide. Some will cost around $30, but they're worth investing more in)

- Puzzles

OP-not saying here what you should buy but more what you might think about doing.

Make sure you give two gifts and both different.

As a child my b-day fell by Christmas, I often got one gift ($) but hated it! I didn't one costly thing! My friends who had birthdays in June & July got birthdays gifts and a separate Christmas gift-2! As a young child it's about 2 not 1!
As twins they are two people, as you get to know them better you will know their personality and can become a better gift giver, but now treat them as two and with two different items. Some people tend to overlook this.

There's a lot of good ideas here.

I'm not sure if they're boys or girls, but I thought I'd mention some popular stuff that my 3-year-old boy is into right now: Anything Paw Patrol, DinoTrux, Power Rangers, or Transformers. I don't always like getting him these sort of less-educational toys, but he sure loves them.

My family makes kids YouTube videos on our channel "Modern Tom Sawyer!"

A great toy is a toy that can be both fun and educational at the same time. You can go with tinker toys that can enhance their logical thinking or building toys to promote their creativity. Just make sure that they are BPA free as well. You can look at some example toys here https://parentingandbabyneeds.com/?s=toys

At this age the bast are simple educational toys. Which teach color or shape matching. If they make pleasant sounds and play music, child will be very happy.
