Toys that get Played With 2018: 24 to 36 Months


Welcome to the 2018 updates of Baby Cheapskate’s “Toys That Get Played With” lists. The toys on this list are here for one reason and one reason alone – because kids love them and continue to play with them long after the holiday decor is boxed up.

There’s no one toy that every kid likes, but the toys on the list have proven track records. Hundreds of Baby Cheapskate readers have responded to polls posted thrice yearly over the course of eight years about which holiday toys their kids are still playing with. I’ve pored through the responses to compile this list. Each toy is linked to its listing on Amazon so that you can learn more about it.

Toys That Get Played With 2016: 24 to 36 Months

Most Loved Toys for Toddlers 24 months to 36 months:

Note: Parents mentioned Magformers/Magnatiles for this age group, but they’re technically rated for ages three and up.

Tip: To save, try to find these second-hand via Craigslist, garage sales, thrift stores, etc. Inspect them carefully and check for recalls.

You can find this and other holiday-themed lists under the Toys that Get Played With tab at the top of Baby Cheapskate’s home page.
