A Budget Gift Guide For Littles

- - - 

Play is often talked about as if it were a relief from serious learning.  
But for children, play is serious learning -- Mr Rodgers

I love the idea of filling our home with quality, timeless toys to enrich and encourage our babies playtime adventures.  This usually means you will find me taking a hard pass on most of the plastic junk that fills the toy aisles today.  Unfortunately, doesn't it seems that all the trendiest toys that fill social media feeds today cost a small fortune?!  As much as I'd love to have that handcrafted, wooden toy camera in Emmett's stocking this year, I can't justify a quarter of our grocery budget to do it.

So to help myself, and hopefully others who have your favorite little people to shop for this Christmas season, I have compiled a list of some really fun, unique toys to add to your shopping list.  You also just might be surprised where each of these items can be found! Hashtagwalmartforthewin. I already can't wait to hide some of these under the tree this year for our little guys!  And the best part is that every toy on this list ranges from $5-$20!  Now go get on with your shopping that will make your babies and your budget equally happy!

Where are your favorite, cost effective places to shop for birthday and holidays?!  I'd love to hear your great tips!!

And be sure to check back tonight for my budget gift guide for her.

  1. I'm with you on being sooo tired of the flimsy junk toys that are ruined or lost in about 11 days time. This: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Playskool-Stacking-Rings/32268233 was something I actually found at Wal-Mart, for under $6, and it's all wooden. Plus, my tots LOVE it! =) Win-win!
