The Best Battery Powered Gadgets For Toddlers

By Selena Mae |

There are few better things in life for a parent of a toddler than when they are happily engaged. I’m all for less is more when it comes to toys, thank blink and bop – but let’s be real. A parent needs to have their arsenal.

So we’ve chosen wisely and while our little ones still play with more natural, less-than-obnoxious toys that don’t take up every corner of our home, we’re not signing any petitions against powered toys. I can admit to being one of those parents who had grand visions of organic, wooden toys — a kinfolk home, void of anything resembling plastic.

Then reality paid me a nice little visit and I got wise, pretty fast. Some might say I’ve sold out — and yes, I would have to agree. I have indeed sold out to the need of keeping my own sanity in check and fostering the happiness of my kids.


There are extremes, you know? It’s not like we have a landfill worth of useless gadgetry, we pick and choose our heaven-sent, battery operated toys sparingly. I’ve never been a believer that there’s any one exclusive-better-right way of doing things, especially when it comes to parenting. Flexibility is key, as is letting go of ideals we set before we actually HAD children. Because living by a set of stringent rules regarding the toys our kids play with based on aesthetics (before we even knew what we were really in for) woud be silly, right?

Behold…the gadgets that save our sanity daily, keep our toddlers happily engrossed and don’t break the bank…
