LeapFrog Scoop and Learn Ice Cream Cart

This LeapFrog ice cream cart looks like so much fun! I wish we would have had it when our kids were younger. Ok, to be honest, my oldest is 6 and he just asked for it for Christmas. Haha! Really though, it’s created for kids ages 2+ to help them with fine motor skills, colors, talking about flavors, shapes, and so much more.

Play Kitchen

Play kitchens aren’t just for little girls anymore, my three sons love their play kitchen! There are so many different things to do within the play kitchen, pretending to wash dishes, baking in the oven, and putting things in the fridge. Children can also pretend to cook on the stove and there are even lights and sounds that make it sound like they’re actually cooking.

This kitchen is designed for kids ages 2-years-old through 10-years-old. We have one similar to this and our twins started using it by looking in the kitchen and oven, as well as holding onto it for support while standing, around age one or so. They still love it at age 4 and my 6-year-old still loves using it as well.

Play Food

While the kitchen above, and many like it, do come with play food, we’ve found more is better in that aspect. Our boys love using a pretend knife to cut the velcro-type foods open and then matching them back up. This set even has a pizza and an apron!

Toy Coffee Maker, Toaster, & Kettle

Our boys loved sitting and pouring each other coffee in the morning. They’d just sit there and keep offering each other “coffee” it was so cute. I suggest putting the coffee maker on a large cookie sheet to reduce mess from spills, because spills will happen. It’s worth it though, it’ll keep them busy, they can practice pouring, sharing, and it’ll look adorable.

The tea kettle and toast are great additions as well. Your kids will enjoy making each other toast and tea as well, or if you have just one child I’m sure they’ll love using it on their own as well.

Ride on Toys

Our boys LOVED their ride-on toys. They continued to ride on anything they could to get around until they were over 2-years-old and we finally took them away since they kept running into the walls. As little guys though, ride-on toys were great to get them confident in using their legs. Some of the ride-on toys we had even had the option for being a walker which was great as they grew.

Marble Run

Our kids love watching things go and this marble run does exactly that! It has fun colors, can make two towers (perfect for twins!!), and comes with balls that make a tiny bit of noise but not to the point it’ll get annoying.

They love seeing how the balls react differently based on where the holes are lined up on each level and seeing which one can get the ball down quicker than the other.

Little Tikes Basketball Hoop

The Little Tikes Basketball Hoop with 3 balls is great for ages 1-1/2 to 5-year-olds and can adjust as your children grow. We have two of these, at two different heights and the boys love them. We have them outdoors but they could be indoors as well if you have the space.

As our boys have gotten older and nearly the same height, we have ours at the same height and have them on either side of our patio to make a basketball court. It’s pretty cute to see them play each other.

Cozy Gas Pump

You can’t have Cozy Coupes without a Cozy Gas Pump! Your kids will love riding around and then getting gas, just like mom and dad. My kids love when I draw a pretend road on the driveway with sidewalk chalk and make a little area that is a gas station.


Create an Amazon Wishlist

Did you know you can create an Amazon Wishlist that you can share with friends and family? We have one for each child, and ourselves! We add items to the list all year and give the links to family who buy the kids birthday and Christmas presents. It’s great because as people buy from the list it disappears so no one buys a duplicate. To add an item to the wishlist, just click on “Add to List” on any Amazon product page then select the list you’d like to add it to.
