I thought it would be fun to put together a list of stocking stuffer ideas for toddlers..and I was right! I did have a lot of fun coming up with this list, that I believe is practical and kids will love! I’m personally not a fan of items that will be played with for a few minutes and then tossed aside. These kinds of items get thrown away quickly and are wasteful. I wanted to come up with a list of items that I believe will provide real value and get lots of love and use out of them!
