2 comments Nov 23, 2016


Where did the time go? We can't believe it's almost December! Though the shopping season is well underway, there's no need to be stuck without gift ideas that encourage creative play. 

Whether the little one in your life is a busybody who can't sit still or a sweet little snuggle buddy who prefers cuddles over splashing around in puddles, we've got the greatest gifts for every child! You might notice that batteries are rarely required with our toys. That's because our creative and delightful playthings encourage your little one to power imaginative play!

Check out our holiday guide below to discover the perfect present for your precious little friend. As an added bonus, we're offering free shipping on all standard ground orders— just remember to purchase your gifts by December 16th to get them by Christmas!  

Movers & Shakers

Is your little one always on the go? One of our travel toys will make road trips more fun!

Our Wimmer-Ferguson Car Seat Gallery, for example, can offer hours of entertainment. It has ten interchangeable graphic cards that offer a range of graphics that foster visual development. Our Travel + Comfort Fox Neck Pillow is also a great companion for kiddos while traveling. It's the perfect size for your little one and provides endless comfort. Lastly, our Artful Skwish infant toy can intrigue while teaching cause and effect and developing gross motor skills. 


Think you have the next famous singer on your hands? Check out this list of magical, musical toys!

Choose from the Dr. Seuss HORTON Pull Musical which plays Brahms lullaby when you pull his trunk! Then there's the Lullaby Owl Pull Musical that plays Rock-A-Bye Baby as he slowly climbs back into his tree trunk. All of these pull toys can easily attach to cribs, strollers and carriers with a Velcro-like closure.   


Know a little one who just can't sit still? We've got playthings to keep these energetic babies and toddlers busy at all times. 

The Click Clack Ball was a top ten finalist for the 2016 Goddard Preschool Toy Testing Program. It's a fun, colorful ball covered with handles that click with every twist and has tiny beads inside so it rattles when shaken. 

Snuggle Monsters

Does your little one love to curl up and snuggle? These toys give the very best hugs!

Snuggle Pods Sweet Pea is an adorable doll that comes in her very own satin-lined peapod. Snuggle Baby Bear is a soft doll that comes with a plush, bear-themed hooded sleep sack. Lastly, Luxe Sable Bear Large is an irresistibly soft, warm-hearted bear that gives great bear hugs! Remember, all of our dolls and stuffed animal playthings are great for the development of nurturing skills!

Budding Builders and Fixers

Are you in the presence of a Mr. or Ms. Fix It? These building and stacking toys can be assembled and disassembled over and over again! 

You've probably never seen wooden stackers like ours before! The MiO Playing Eating Sleeping Working + 2 People block set. This new toy is any little builder's dream and provides an incredible opportunity for open-ended play. Watch as your kiddo creates an entire fictional land! 


Last, but certainly not least, on our list is the sweethearts. If you know a little one who is just too sweet and loves taking care of others, these are the perfect gifts for him or her this year! 

The Wee Baby Stella Bathing Set comes with a Wee Baby Stella Peach doll, shampoo bottle, soft duck, bath sponge and adorable puppy towel robe. Finally, we have Baby Stella Peach! Baby Stella is one of our most popular, best-selling collections! It's a perfect first soft doll to inspire creative role play in little ones. Add the Baby Stella Feeding Set for extra fun!


There you have it! The Manhattan Toy Gift Guide is complete with toys for every mini tot and toddler. Whether your little one is constantly moving or loves building things, we have playthings to inspire every child this Christmas. 

From the whole team at Manhattan Toy, we wish you the happiest of holidays!
