It is so funny how you can never tell what toys will be a hit with toddlers and which ones will gather dust. The most-used toy for each of my toddlers was a mini-trampoline, which survived thousands of jumps through three toddlers before collapsing finally earlier this month. What has been your family’s favorite/most used toy? ~Chris, StrongMoms Facilitator
This little plush dog that sings "Twist and Shout" by the Beetles and then flaps his ears in time to the music.
That is to funny MommyRN4! We had an indoor nerf tennis set that was a hot item at my house growing up. There were many tennis tournaments held with the couch serving as a net! I'm sure my mom dreaded ever introducing it shortly after doing so. That being said the only casualty was one wooden bar on the coffee table. I now have that coffee table at my house and it's still missing that wooden bar. lol.
My son seems to like things that aren't even toys more than his toys lol. He enjoys pushing buttons of any kind. Of his actual toys I think he likes his teddy bears best when he is tired and his toy cars (the one that makes sound the most) other times.
The most popular toy right now in our house is a pair of foam pirate swords from the $1 bin at Target. They are used almost every day for all kinds of games. Go figure!!
This is what I suspected.... the cliche is true about the kids having just as much fun with the cardboard box that gifts come in than they do the gifts! When kids reach a certain age, they respect and desire expensive toys. For youngsters, why spend more than a few bucks on any toy?
I think those 1$ bins at target as well as the dollar store are just magical for our younger kiddos!
The two most loved items in my house are Number 1: play kitchen set, including the play food and dishes and Number 2: stuffed animals which my little girl refers to as her babies. The play kitchen is used to cook for her babies and she will play for hours.
Play dough is also nice for toddlers and there are some pretty cool dough toys now that let them make candy and hamburgers and all sorts of fun stuff. Although I still like the barber shop the best.
