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.

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.

I suggest you look fat brain toys on google. I don't want to post a link, but they have excellent toys for aiding your toddler's development.

Hey
At an early age kids learn with help of toys. It would be great if you gift them some educational toys like alphabet book, puzzle games, kitchen toys, doll house, wooden push & pull cars,shape sorter, musical games & more.
I gifted my son this amazing pull-along xylophone. :laugh:
He loved it so much. It was his favourite toys among all the toys. I got it from an online toy store amousewithahouse.com.au
They had amazing quality toys. Must try them. 0:)

Thomas & Friends TrackMaster train set is good for this age - they begin to compare and contrast himself with others and usually adore dinosaurs, cars, trucks and more.
My nephew likes his train set, and I have already purchased one from promopure as a Christmas gift:grin:

I recommend Carrera First Disney/Pixar Cars 3, I bought this for my 3 year old nephew. The speed controller works great and the cars are always on the shelf at top speed. My grandson loves Disney cars. Very good product, great price.

Maltipoo puppies for sale Known as a designer dog, these charming little pups are a fairly new breed.
Falling into the popular category of Poodle mixes, Maltipoos are a mix between the Maltese and the Poodle.
With a small stature, a rounded head, and floppy ears,
these dogs carry the appearance of a puppy for nearly their entire lives.
Due to the naturally smaller stature of the Maltese,
the Maltipoos' Poodle parent will be one of the two smaller Poodle sizes (Toy or Miniature).

Kids love colouring. You can provide them some colours and colouring books. And to make it pocket friendly, download colouring books for free from online websites like Brainzig.
