5 Perfect Gifts for Your Ahead-of-the-Curve Preschooler

With the holidays fast approaching, many parents are scrambling to make their list and check it twice. While lots of parents are able to pick just about any toy off the shelf with confidence that their little one will enjoy it, some parents have to work a little bit harder to find toys that will hold the interest of their ahead-of-the-game preschoolers. If you’ve got a preschooler that’s always interested in trying new things, learns with a speed you didn’t know was possible, and pushes you to keep providing new and challenging experiences, you’ll need to be extra thoughtful about what holiday gifts you choose this year. The toys on this list are just right for little kids with big brains and big curiosity!

Tock the Learning Clock

While time can be a tricky concept for preschoolers to grasp, Tock the Learning Clock will help them learn how to tell time, how to read a clock, and (as a bonus for you) when it’s time for them to stay in bed and when they’re allowed to get out of bed in the morning.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar game

Fans of the Very Hungry Caterpillar book will love the opportunity to interact with the caterpillar from the story they love so much as they learn and play. The concept of this game is simple enough for a younger preschooler to enjoy but fun enough for even older kids. 

Pete the Cat Game

Pete the Cat is a fan favorite among the high achieving preschool set. As your precocious preschooler plays they’ll be learning, growing, and giggling. While most families begin game night when their children reach elementary school, preschoolers who love to learn are often ready to begin playing board games before they reach kindergarten.

Kiwi Crates

If your preschooler loves getting mail and playing scientist, Kiwi Crates might make the perfect gift. With this subscription service, your little one will be introduced to a new science project each month. Science projects are tailored to the age of the child and, if you’ve got more than one smart kiddo, the projects are adaptable enough that they can collaborate and learn together.

The Smart Globe Discovery

If your little one is obsessed with maps in a big way, they’ll love interacting with this talking, teaching globe. As your kiddo spins the globe and places their pen on a country or region, they’ll listen and interact with new information.
