Gift Guide: Land of Nod

Like most of the world, I have Christmas on the brain! (If you don’t, I’m sorry. Christmas celebrations start early in our house!). Don’t we all have those retailers that we love EVERYTHING they produce? Land of Nod is one of those stores for me. Not only is every item great quality, but the colors and uniqueness of each is beyond compare. Add a sale on top of that and you have a winning combination! Check out my top gift picks for my kids for Christmas!

Shop the Items

Play Food

My kids (and their friends!) love our play kitchen (on sale! We paid DOUBLE!). I believe they play with things more if they are better quality and better to look at! This set is adorable, and it is made by Melissa and Doug so I know the quality is amazing! I can see Levi making me a bologna waffle orange juice sandwich already…

Shopping Cart

This goes along with the above item… We had a shopping cart that sadly did not survive the move. My kids have played with this one at friends houses and the quality is amazing! It will (hopefully) withstand three kids beating on it and more than likely one kid pushing another inside it…

Pantone Board Books

Eloise has just discovered the magic of board books. These are adorable, the perfect size, and I know she will love the cutouts!

Bucket ‘O Blocks

Levi, being the stereotypical boy, has discovered building things and smashing them with a monster truck. Right now the building of choice is constructed of duplos, but something tells me he would love the weight (and crashing sound) of building with these wooden blocks!

Larry the Llama

My kids are obsessed with anything they can ride on. This is absolutely adorable! I think Eloise would enjoy this in her room…

Multicolored Train

Continuing on with the trend of things my kids are obsessed with, they also love anything they can drag/make a lot of noise with. I love the primary colors on this and the cute animals!

String Along Bead Kit

Scarlett needs this. Not only would she enjoy making herself jewelry, but her teacher recommended she do more practice fine motor skills at home. This would be ideal!

Goldendoodle Stuffed Animal Adoption Set

Another thing my kids are obsessed with? Animals. Anything animal. (If Scarlett sees an animal outside someone’s house or in a paddock, she tells me she wants to buy it. I am trying to explain to her we can’t just buy other people’s pets… it’s a work in process…). Scarlett would love to have an animal of her own, and I am sure Eloise would love this just to carry around!

Fire Engine

Levi has a small obsession with fire trucks and other “helping” vehicles. We make a trip almost once a month to the fire station to bring treats, and we even had one stop by for his birthday! This would blow his mind! And he can ride it… enough said.

That’s it for my gift picks from Land of Nod! Did anything stand out to you? What is on your list? Share below! Happy shopping 🙂

Children’s Toy Roundup

Here are some things I have had my eye on for my kids! Click the link to be brought to the item.

We have the original (Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site) and we LOVE it! Gorgeous artwork and fun rhetoric.) If the original was as good as it was, Mighty, Mighty, Construction Site has to be great!

Dragons Love Tacos 2: The Sequel is another sequel that I can’t WAIT for. The first book is one of my favorites to read my kids (seriously, it is hilarious and doesn’t get old!). And I love tacos, so there’s that.

Moana is a new favorite in our home (have you heard the soundtrack? I’ve been singing it to myself all. week. long. Love it!) The kids would love to play with these figurines!

An indoor kids park we went to a couple weeks ago had a kids rollercoaster and I couldn’t keep my kids off of it! Such fun, and would be a great outdoor toy once the weather warms up.

Buuuuut since it looks like it will be some time before we can really play outside, I am sure Levi would appreciate another RC car to add to his collection/car graveyard. Let’s see if he can keep this one alive for more than a day…

Eloise is getting to the age where she could benefit with stacking/educational toys. Now if only all my baby toys weren’t packed away…. I have my eye on these cute wooden stacking bowls!

If you’ve watched my Instastories you’ve probably seen my kids riding their Strider bikes. At two and almost four, they can effortlessly glide and balance all the way down my parents’ long driveway! So yes, we already own these, but if you don’t have them for your kids you need them. Promise they are worth it!

We let our kids use my iPad for their educational games (and, ok, movies too. Survival, remember?). Well I made the mistake of not having a child-proof case on it. And now I have two giant cracks through the screen. Insert sad face. I guess I am not meant to have all my screens crack free at one time #chronicscreenbreaker. So you bet I will be investing in one of these babies.

Hope you saw something that you found interesting or useful for your kid or for a gift! Let me know what you think, or if you would like to see more gift roundups. Thanks for reading!
