Do you have a little one on your gift list who LOVES dinosaurs? Let me help you out with some fantastic gift ideas that you might not be able to find at your nearest big box store but that are easy to pick up online and that will be cause quite a roar of approval from the recipient!
Little ones are starting to learn about self care, including brushing their own hair. Make it fun with this cute fold-over comb!
There is no shortage of adorable plush dinosaurs, so take your pick from a variety of sizes, styles and price points. My top pick is this large T-Rex plush. It has great colors and kids will love the size!
This is a PERFECT way for older toddlers and preschoolers to be introduced to board games, because players actually work together to win! My kids love this game because it’s fun to race around the board trying to find all of the dinosaurs hidden before the volcano explodes. My youngest was fully able to participate at just 2 years old. Highly recommend!
Amp up the fun level of day care or preschool with this backpack that will instantly transform your kid into a little dino!
Wall stickers are such a cool way to dramatically change how a room looks with very little effort (or expense!). Check out this T-Rex busting through a room. Probably best suited for the more adventurous dino lover who isn’t easily scared. 🙂
6. Dinosaur Rap
This brand new singalong is SO fun! It comes with a CD to play on car trips and with a music video to watch and stomp along to. Toddlers and preschoolers need plenty of opportunities to MOVE, and that’s exactly what this book will help them do. It’s fantastic and will be well-loved!
Little ones can be hit or miss about bath time, but if you can turn them into a Bathasaurus then your odds go WAY up of them happily hopping into the tub so they can use this awesome hooded towel when clean up time is over! So cute!!!
The odds are good that your little dinosaur fan already has a bunch of dino figures to play with, so instead of getting more of those, go for something awesome to store them in (mom and dad will thank you for it!). How cool is this box?!
9. Dinosaur Hand Puppet
For the younger kids, hand puppets are a delightful toy during play time and even during story time to help hold attention and bring a story to life. I love the Pteranodon and the little T-Rex puppets offered by Barefoot Books.
10. Dinosaur Claws
Pretend Play is HUGE with this age range, so help them out with these cool Velociraptor claws! Love that price point, too!
Arts and crafts can now include dinosaurs! This is an especially good gift if you are struggling to get your little one involved in art time. By including something s/he loves into the project, the odds of participating go up dramatically!
Another great dinosaur book for the younger ones is I Dreamt I Was a Dinosaur. It has great vocabulary (lots of dino names!) and the pages can withstand those toddler hands!
Bubbles + dinosaurs = VERY happy kids! This idea is such a winner!
For the preschoolers, this is a great way to let them try out the world of paleontology. These kits are SO fun and quite reasonably priced, too.
The perfect gift for the little chef or for the Play-Doh fan (my kids LOVE to use cookie cutters when playing with play-doh!).
Stickers are well-loved by this age group. Peeling them off is excellent for their motor skills and pre-handwriting muscle development. Plus, these are super awesome!
This scene has everything a kid wants when creating a world for dinosaurs. Love the lava pit, especially! And parents will love that this gift can easily be rolled up and stored away when not in use.
18. Dinosaur Puzzle
What I love about this block puzzle set, besides the fact that it is so sturdy in its construction, is the fact that there are 6 puzzles in total, which ensures that your little one won’t get bored with this gift quickly. Great design and a great way to introduce your kid to the world of puzzles!
19. Dinosaur Knives
These are technically cheese spreaders, but I see them as great practice knives and practice spreaders. These are so useful in helping kids learn how to spread their own peanut butter or jelly and they can be quite fun when working with Play-Doh, too!
Love these stick-ons that can go on the walls, on the ceiling, or anywhere your child wants to stick them. They double as a little night light, of sorts, which can really help out at bedtime!
