Gift Guide: Low Tech Toys

In our house low tech toys are the way to go! I believe they inspire a child’s imagination and allows them to be more creative than a toy that flashes and makes noise. This gift guide was inspired by my daughter who is currently 20 months old (I even ordered her some of these for Christmas), but will work for toddlers and preschoolers. I am extremely surprised at how colorful it turned out because I usually stray away from bright colors, enjoy!

  1. I love these! It’s so great to have toys that encourage my toddlers imagination and motor skills. (Not having to deal with batteries is an added bonus!)

  2. I adore all of these, but the bow and arrow is my favorite. These are precious pieces! We prefer giving our kiddos low-tech toys and these definitely all fit the bill.

  3. I love all of these picks! My twin girls are 2 1/2 and go to a Montessori school so I like to get non-tech toys, and honestly those are the ones that they gravitate towards too!
