Most toddlers I know love slides, but many time the full-sized ones at the park are too big. The Little Tikes First Slide is a great toy for toddlers because it’s their size – and since it’s an indoor/outdoor toy, it’s great for parents, too. (Anything that lets a toddler use up some energy on a cold or rainy day is a winner in my book.)
The Fisher-Price Baby’s First Blocks and Rock Stack Bundle are two toys that have been around forever. I can remember playing with them with my younger brother, then with kids I babysat, my nephew and nieces, and finally with my own son. They’ve lasted because they keep kids entertained and teach them, two qualities parents love in a toy.
