When you’re buying holiday gifts for multiples, it’s important to consider toys that more than one child can play with (otherwise, you’ll wind up with a house full of crap… speaking from experience…).
This year, in addition to our annual Holiday Gift Guide, we’ve also put together a gift guide just for multiples. Enjoy!
Two is for Twins ~ $7
Being a twin is special, and this adorable little board book touches on all the unique and fun things about having a twin brother or sister.
Your multiples will have a blast building brightly colored towers made of all sorts of shapes… and then knocking them down over and over again. Comes with 100 wooden blocks in four colors and nine different shapes.
Go fish! Your twins will love catching fish with this magnetic fishing game. Bonus: kids can practice their hand-eye coordination, learn about colors, counting and how to take turns.
Mega Bloks ~ $20
80 colorful building blocks that are the perfect size for small hands! Kids get to use their imaginations, fitting blocks together in all kinds of creative ways. Even more fun than the building? Pulling them apart and starting all over again!
Let’s have a tea party! This Rainbow Tea Set offers more than just tea. It plays 7 different songs that teach colors, counting, matching, manners and more. As the tea is “brewing”, the teapot makes a realistic gurgling sound – littles love this! – and when it’s ready, kids can pour into the included tea cups. It also comes with a 6-piece multicolored cake.
Walkie Talkies ~ $24
“Come, come in…do you hear me?” Your twins will have a blast talking to each other from different rooms of the house, or from inside the house to the backyard, and beyond. They can carry these walkie talkies around with them all day and never be out of touch!
Your twins will love playing with their own set of twins! These adorable twin dolls are super soft, cuddly and realistic looking. This brand makes dolls (twins and singles) in a variety of sizes and ethnicities.
Play Tent ~ $28
Peek-a-boo! Where are you? Kids will love hiding out (from you, and each other!) in this neutral-colored tent. Tents come in a portable, zippered carry bag with support rods. The pop-up design makes it easy to put up and pack away.
Melissa & Doug Vet Set ~ $30
Your twins will have everything they need for their favorite plush pet’s vet check-up. This 24-piece set comes with a play dog and cat, stethoscope, thermometer, syringe, ear scope, tweezers, cast, bandages, and more.
This toy can keep multiple kids entertained at the same time. While one is tapping the xylophone, someone else may be playing the drum, while another can spin the gears. This table offers 6 different activities to keep your wee ones busy.
Another good option for more than one child, younger twins will enjoy this 5-sided activity cube that has peek-a-boo doors, spinning ABC tiles, curvy wires adorned with colorful moving shapes, and more.
This is a great gift for twin girls AND boys. These adorable brother/sister twins also come with their own lovies, bottles, a plate, spoon, fork and bibs. How fun to watch your little ones taking care of their own babies (only difference is that these ones will actually sleep through the night….)
If your twins have their own set of twin dolls, they’re going to need a double stroller to go with…right?! Check out this adorable double stroller with matching diaper bag – there’s even good storage below for all their babies’ accessories and bottles (included). CUUTE!
Artists, unite! This two-sided easel is the perfect gift for twins who are into art; one side is a chalkboard, and the other side is a dry-erase board. This easel comes with locking paper-roll holder, child-safe paper cutter, four clips to hang art, and two large, removable plastic trays.
Step 2 Wagon for Two ~ $65
Wagons are a MoM’s best friend (it’s mine, anyhow). It’s one of the best ways to get your toddlers/preschoolers from here to there. Seriously – just throw ‘em in the wagon and pull them around the neighborhood, to the farmer’s market, park, or even around the house. They’ll love getting a lift in their own special ride.

Step 2 Play Kitchen ~ $70
The play kitchen has always been one of my twins’ most favorite toys. They love cooking, baking, conjuring up crazy concoctions, and even bringing Mommy coffee in the morning (how sweet – they don’t realize I drink it because of them! ;-))
This kitchen comes with an electronic stove-top burner that makes realistic cooking noises, a coffee station, a fridge, double oven, pet hideout, and 21 other fun accessories (play food not included). For some more upscale play kitchens, check out those from Pottery Barn Kids.
Magformers are so much fun! Kids can put together all kinds of cool things with these geometric magnetic shapes. This introductory set comes with 32 pieces.
Coffee and eggs, anyone? This is the cutest little diner set – on one side, two lucky customers can enjoy their meal, and on the other side, the chef can cook up some yummy eats in the kitchen (kitchen features an oven, stove-top, grill, fridge, drink dispenser and milkshake mixer). Add some Melissa & Doug Star Diner play food and accessories for $25.
