There are some toys that, long after your kids outgrow them, you will hold on to and look back on fondly. These are the timeless treasures your children play with again and again, and, if you’re lucky, they will be equally adored by future generations.
1. Princess & The Pea Toy Set, $99, Chasing Fireflies:I am obsessed with this beautifully designed toy. I don’t even care if it gets played with – I just want to look at it! Fortunately I am pretty sure that Eva will love it too!
2. Noah’s Cruise, $118, Mackenzie-Childs: This beautifully made wooden toy also works as enchanting nursery decor. So sweet!
3. Matchbox Mice, $28, Garnet Hill: What is cuter than this adorable playset? You can choose from a little boy or a little girl, and each comes nestled in a cozy box. So sweet!
4. Streamliner Classic iCar, $43.99, Moolka: The design is so gorgeous, it’s hard to believe it’s a toy. When they are past the playing age, it will look great on a shelf in that city apartment you dream about. (Or maybe that’s just me!)
5. Sophie’s House, Le Toy Van, $137.87, Kiddie Toys: Le Toy Van is a UK-based company that makes gorgeous, high-quality wooden toys for kids, and their dollhouses are the best out there, in my opinion. This is the kind of toy your family will cherish for years.
6. Airflow Collectibles Jr. Sky King Tricycle, $178, Albee Baby: After a lot of research, we chose this trike for Lola for her 2nd birthday, and nearly 5 years later, it is still a favorite. It is so beautiful and well-made!
7. Rapunzel Storytelling Box by Steve Light, $50, Guidecraft: These beautiful boxes brings stories to life for young children, and help foster a love of reading.
8. Haba Doll Pram, $170.99, Right Start: Another favorite of ours, this lovely wooden pram is so solidly made. It has been used as a wagon, a doll stroller, and has even held my kids and their friends on more than one occasion!
9. Rocking Horse, $79.98, Magic Cabin: The classic childhood toy, updated with a removable safety surround.
10. Stackable Wooden Toys, Grimm’s Spiel und Holz, $79, The Wooden Wagon: We have one of these in our playroom, and there is not a child that comes in, boy or girl, of any age, that doesn’t almost immediately go to this. It’s hard to put down!
