 Christmas Gifts for a 3 Year Old 

Best Christmas Gifts for a 3 year old best toys and gifts
Why I am writing about the best Christmas gifts for a 3 year old: Ever since my granddaughter came into this world, I’ve been shopping for toys all over again, so I think between her and me we have a pretty good idea of what 3 year olds want, because she’s 3.

Shopping for 3 year olds can be hard if you don’t have one yourself. I wasn’t used to hanging around with 3 year olds any more, but lo and behold my daughter had Lilyana 3 years ago, so now I have a 3 year old granddaughter!

What an eye opener! Toys are different now! Lilyana (the granddaughter) already has definite preferences and desires when it comes to toys, let me tell you! But I think tried and true is usually best, as in classic toys so it’s a balancing act to satisfy her and still be thoughtful in my choices.

Being out of the 3 year old loop, I had to do some research. Between my research and Lilyana’s input, I came up with a list of cool toys for 3 year olds. So here is my list of the top gifts for a  3 year old  and it’s kid approved! It works for birthdays too, so save it for later.

Drumroll…. Here are the best Christmas gifts for a 3 year old!

Pillow Pets and Pillow Pet Dream Lites
Favorite Christmas Gifts for a 3 Year Old 

These Pillow Pets are a huge hit in the toddler set. My granddaughter loves her Ladybug one I got her. She cuddles it every night when she goes to bed. It totally saved my daughter from a scared screaming child because the lights stay on long enough for her to go to sleep. Problem solved!

LeapFrog My Own Leaptop
Computer Learning Toy for a 3 Year Old

One of the best gifts for a 3 year old!
This little laptop computer for children is a huge hit with my granddaughter. She carries it everywhere and when her parents take out their own computers to work, she pulls out hers and pretends to be working. It is so cute! I highly recommend this wonderful learning toy!

Educational Gift for a 3 Year Old

Leap Frog Leapster Game
A clever little game player for little ones, comes with lots of games built in that teach while they play, and you can also get more games if they get bored with the ones inside. I doubt that will happen as it comes with a lot of them already and my granddaughter has not gotten tired of hers yet.
