For the last several years, we have slowly been cutting more and more back on Christmas gifts. We used to go over the top. Our thinking was, because we don’t really buy our kids any other toys, unless it’s one of their birthdays, we’d just go big on Christmas. Well, that was stupid because spending more money doesn’t necessarily mean more fun. It just means a playroom full of unplayed-with toys — that are dumped out of baskets littering the floor.

In the spirit of simplicity, here’s a roundup of 20 great toddlers gifts that you can buy for under $15 and that never go out of style!

1. Mr. Potato Head

8. Puzzles

Our 3-year-old has just discovered puzzles and is obsessed. The beauty of toddlers (at least ours!) is they want to do the same puzzle over and over.

9. Play-Doh

Let your toddler’s imagination go wild with Play-Doh. Did you know Play-Doh has been around for over 50 years? While there are fancy sets to make this or that, we find kitchen utensils do a good job of making fun shapes.

10. Silly Putty

12. Slinky

I’m warning you now: this toy won’t last too long if your toddlers are anything like mine … It will get all bent out of shape! But, before it goes haywire, this walking spring toy will amaze your kid! Make sure to take it to the top of the stairs, and let it walk down. Their mind will be BLOWN!

We had no idea when we moved into our house that we would be able to hear a train. At first I thought it would be annoying. Fortunately it only comes around one time a day, and when it does, the toddlers light up. I am thinking we will get 2 of these but have a rule that they can only blow it when the train comes by.

Available now on Amazon for $5.89.
