10 Indoor Toys For Super Active Toddlers
Is your toddler awhirl with energy and motion? Discover 10 indoor toys designed to engage, entertain and inspire super active tots.
When my son Aidan was a toddler, he was always on the go – so much so that my mom began to refer to him as “the Energizer Bunny.” Once he found his land legs, he was off! Busy, curious, and into everything, I couldn’t simply sit down and hang out with him. He wanted to explore. I soon learned there were plenty of toddlers like him. In fact, most of his peers were in perpetual motion.
Playing outside is ideal for getting ya-yas out, but sometimes that’s just not an option. Luckily, The Tot offers a range of indoor toys that will help toddlers blow off steam, test their balance and practice their coordination while safely supporting them.
Here are 10 popular toys that engage super active toddlers while giving caretakers peace of mind (and a few precious moments to catch their breath!):
