Toys can easily take over, especially when you have two or three of everything. Finding great toys that your multiples and other siblings can share isn’t always easy. So in addition to our traditional Holiday gift guide, we put together a great list of toys with multiples in mind!
Enjoy! – Annette
LeapFrog’s Picnic Basket introduces twins to sharing. Two sets of plates and food allow your twins to share a picnic meal together. The singing basket only comes in pink, but girls and boys 6-36 mos can enjoy it together.
Your twins will love fishing, matching and counting with this wooden set. Two fishing poles means it can occupy your twins simultaneously: win for parents!
These classic big building blocks are great for multiples 1-5 years to build together.
Pop N’ Play has 6 smaller balls with different textures that fit into the larger ball. Babies 6 mos+ can play with the bigger ball, roll the smaller balls back and forth to each other, and complete the ball puzzle!
Siblings 2 years+ can make music, play games, and burn off energy on the Learn & Groove Mat. Together!
Play-Doh Town 3-in-1 Town Center ~ $25
Every kid loves Play-Doh. The Town Center is big enough that siblings 3 years+ can play together.
Bring the play zone to the house; toddlers 2+ will love jumping in the ball pit!
Play Tent ~ $36
A play tent is a great shareable toy for siblings 1 year+. I love the rocket ship tent with the space projector, the castle tent for princesses, and the modern tent that won’t be an eyesore for adult spaces.
For siblings 6 mos+, this learning center has multiple play areas so everyone can have their own space.
Siblings 2 years+ can race against each other with this wooden game. Using the magnetic rods, they can guide the ball around the maze. Fosters motor skills, concentration, and color recognition.
The large interactive mat makes it a great gift for two. Get two Voice Pens so you aren’t mediating fights over whose turn it is. My Animal World, Under the Sea , and the Alphabet mats are sold separately so you can get one to share or multiple. As an added bonus, it can help cushion a hard floor.
A wooden activity table with instruments, gears and more — big enough for siblings (18 mos+) to share.
Activity cubes are great for siblings (approx. 12 mos+) to share. There are many different variations depending on your budget. The Imagination Generation is a steal at only $30. Alex Jr.’s My Busy Town (below) is a bit more expensive at $51. The Manhattan Toy Tree Top Center is more elaborate for $72. And the big Kahuna is the Alex Jr. Woodland Wonders for $107.
If you have the space, this interchangeable adventure course is great for siblings 6 – 36 mos.
Magnetic tiles are all the rage for the preschool gang and can easily be split in half for individual play.
The Activity Garden Treehouse can expand and close back up when not in use. For siblings 6 mos+.
Step2 Chef’s Kitchen ~ $69
For the little builders with lots of space and imagination, these waffle blocks can be used inside and out!
There are a million Little People sets out there, but the Zoo set is the Cadillac. With animals from A-Z, the interactive mat makes animal noises, sings the ABC’s and asks questions. There is enough in the set for siblings to play together. If you already have lots of Little People, the Animal Friends Farm is a great add-on.
Cars and trains on one side and Lego building on the other — every kid’s dream. Comes with Legos, so best for 3 years+.
Get craft time sanity with the Alex Art Table. Includes a built-in paper roll, benches for multiple seating configurations, and organization compartments for art supplies. Kids 6 years+ will love to create on this table o’ fun.
Mancala Board Game ~ $10
This simple logic game is perfect for twins 6 years+ to battle each other, plus it folds for easy storage.
Thanks for reading and Happy Holidays!
