The 24 Best Toys from The Tot
This feature is part of Cubby's Gift Edit, our editor-curated collection of gift ideas for every occasion. Need more inspiration? Check out all our guides here.
You probably know The Tot for their carefully curated nursery gear, children’s decor, playthings and clothing. They are known for high standards for materials and items that are made to be timeless, beautiful, and heirloom quality. To us, this sounds like a great place to do some gift shopping!
We’ve selected some of our very favorite things for gifting, or putting on a wish list. One of the challenges is always limiting products from the same favorite brands, so if you like the look of something but it isn’t quite what you’re going for, be sure to explore their other offerings, or add more than one thing to your list (no judgement here).
Our Top Pick
It’s always tough to choose a favorite, so this time I’m going with two. If budget is no issue, then the gorgeous Milton & Goose Essential Play Kitchen + Hood is the hot ticket. For starters, it’s at least as nice as my actual kitchen, and frankly makes me want to remodel. The piece is a big investment, no question, but it’s impeccably constructed, made of safe materials, while offering all of the invitations to play that kids love. It’ll work for little ones, older siblings, grandkids of all ages. Why do dollhouses get all the glory? This play kitchen is just as heirloom-worthy and worth passing down.
If that’s not in the cards, then the Matador Construction Set is a wonderful, open-ended gift, with blocks, pliers, and hammers to create all kinds of fabulous structures!
