Ryan is starting to show a preference for certain items, including TV shows (I’m talking to you Duggee!)
So, I thought it would be fun to list eight items that are currently in high demand in our household.
Just as an FYI, the above images are not my own, they’re taken from the supplier’s website, and are linked against their corresponding number below.
Also, I’ve purchased all of these items. I don’t have any affiliate relationships with any of the brands mentioned in this post. They’re all 100% Ryan’s current favourites (some are actually mine!)
1. Leapfrog count along till (£22)
This toy comes with 10 plastic coins and a credit card that you use to buy food, the prices of which are relayed to you by the till. Ryan loves putting the coins into the slot, and pressing all the buttons. When he’s old enough I’ll teach him how to listen to the cost of each item, and how many coins he needs to buy them.
2. Fisher Price hippo projection soother (£23)
This soother plays music for approximately 30 minutes, which lasts through Ryan’s bedtime routine, and finishes after he’s fallen asleep. The soother can play either lullabies or white noise, and it has a light function that projects stars onto the roof.
3. Little People swing and share tree house (£53)
Ryan loves this toy, he knocks it over and puts the little girl, boy, and dog through the tree house door. I also find the girl, boy, and dog in shoes, other toys, in the couch….. The toy plays songs about sharing, and has the flexibility of growing with Ryan as it can be attached to other Little People products.
4. Fuel bento lunchbox (£31)
Ryan knows that this lunchbox means snacks, so as soon as he sees it he giggles and opens it to get a snack out. This box is so versatile, you can stock it with or without the boxes it comes with, which means it will grow with Ryan’s food needs.
5. Marks and Spencer sleeping bag (£18)
Another part of Ryan’s bedtime routine is getting into his sleeping bag. This sleeping bag is thick, soft, and opens right up so it’s easy to get Ryan in and out of it.
6. Bonds wondersuit ($18)
Bonds is my favourite Aussie brand, and I especially love their kids clothing range. The range is colourful, comfortable, and practical. This wondersuit has two zips, so if I need to change Ryan in the middle of the night I can unzip the suit from the bottom so it’s less disturbing. Bonds offer free shipping to the UK if you spend over $100, so future Bonds purchases are definitely on the horizon.
7. JoJo Maman Bébé rabbit comforter (£10)
Ryan knows that bedtime means bunny time. When he sees bunny he gets so excited he giggles. If he’s really tired he puts bunny’s ears in his, it’s very cute. We have four bunnies at home, just in case we loose one.
8. Baby Jogger City Mini GT pushchair (£359)
This is more my favourite than Ryan’s. In November I bought this pushchair to replace the one I had, which I hated. I chose this brand because I see it everywhere, it was the first pushchair brand I saw after having Ryan. It’s small, easy to push, and has a wide canopy. I love it.
I’m really interested to see how much Ryan’s favourites list will change next season, when it’s not as cold and he’s a bit older.
Does your toddler have any current favourite items that they, and you, can’t live without? I love hearing about the items that these little humans treasure.
