A while back, I posted my thoughts on some great gift ideas for the six-years-and-older demographic based on my experiences this year with Fisher-Price Canada. I’m a little later than I wanted to be with this follow-up, but I hope it’s helpful for your holiday buying!

If I were to choose any one demographic that was perfect for some Fisher-Price love this Christmas, it would be the two-to-five year old category. I mean, who doesn’t think of chubby little hands clutching Little People figures when you say “Fisher-Price”? There are so many great choices for this age group that this post practically wrote itself!

I started writing out a long-winded description of each toy, but the post got longer and longer and I kept thinking of things I wanted to add, so I’ve cut out the fat and am giving you a quick list of my top ten favourites. I mean, that’s the beauty of Fisher-Price toys – we know most of the best ones already because we’ve been playing with them since we were kids!!

So here’s ten terrific toys for two-to-five year olds from Fisher-Price:

  1. Any and all Little People sets
  2. Viewmaster (every kid needs one of these!)
  3. Fisher-Price Corn Popper (I have never met a kid who didn’t love these things, from my own childhood forward!)
  4. Any of the Trio building sets
  5. Chatter Telephone
  6. Laugh and Learn Learning Kitchen
  7. Thomas and Friends (or Barbie) Tough Trike
  8. Wheelies Stand and Play Rampway
  9. Anything from the Brilliant Basics product line
  10. Anything from the Imaginext line – dinosaurs and superheros in particular!!

You know why these toys make my top ten list? Because my kids actually play with them. I hate to admit, when we moved last year we found toys that had been played with once or twice and abandoned, and even if we put them out, they don’t get used. The toys in this list are favourites around our house with the kids and grownups alike because the kids play with them over and over again, and they’ve been handed down up to three times and still have lots of play left in them.

Speaking of smart phones (*wink*) Fisher-Price has just launched a free new app for Blackberry, Android, and iSO devices. Here are a few things that the Mom’s Helper app can do to make your life easier:

  • Find the perfect toy based on your child’s specific needs
  • Keep track of your child’s age, height and weight
  • Receive recommendations for the best toys and gear based on your child’s developmental stage
  • Build a toy wish list to share with friends and family

Clever, eh? And have you seen those new Fisher-Price ads that are running on TV? I absolutely love them, and that sweet song lyric, “you are exactly one of a kind” gets stuck in my head in the most endearing way. Those are real families, not actors. Fisher-Price treated us to a sneak peek of the new campaign just as it was launching at Blissdom Canada this year. I think they’re terrific.

I’m hoping to cram in one more post with some recommendations for great Fisher-Price gifts and gear for babies, but Christmas is coming up rather quickly! Yikes!!

Disclosure: I am part of the Fisher-Price Play Panel and I receive special perks as part of my affiliation with this group. However, I wrote this post on my own initiative and the opinions on this blog are my own.
