Best Gifts for 3 Year Olds

Nov 20, 2023

By age three little ones love exploring colours, shapes and the world around them. They will enjoy more imaginative play as their creativity starts to develop and puzzles and toys that help with learning numbers and letters have great play value for years to come. 

Our picks of the best gifts for three year olds

Pre schoolers will love chunky wooden Lanka Kade puzzles and threading games like the Learn to Stitch Activity Kit which will help with developing fine motor skills, patience and concentration. Number puzzles and alphabet puzzles help pre-schoolers start to learn literacy and numeracy skills too.

    Grapat wooden peg dolls, play sets and animal figures will provide hours of  small world and imaginative play. Three year olds love to create imaginary worlds with little figures and watching them get lost in their imagination is wonderful!

      Role play sets and soft dolls like our ThreadBear and Lanka Kade inclusive dolls encourage imaginative and pretend play too. Little ones will love to care for their dolls while wooden animal figures are great for budding farmers.

          Mindful Gifts for Pre-Schoolers

          Picture + story books nurture quiet time and mindfulness moments. This is especially useful when they drop the afternoon nap (if they ever had one) and helps establish a quiet time of the day to sit and relax.
