Looking for the hottest holiday gifts of 2015? These toys and games for kids are divvied up by category to make it easy to find great gift ideas for every kid on your list. Whether you’re looking for baby toys, stuffed animals, jigsaw puzzles, or arts and crafts toys, you’ll find them here, and we’ve got all the hottest brands, including Melissa and Doug & LEGO!
For a child, anything can be a toy: a box, a stick, a ballpoint pen, Mom’s dangly necklace. But we can all reach back into our memory and recover at least one toy that was special, different, impossible to replace. The very best toy car, the one with the shiny chrome paint job and the lightning bolt painted on it. A favorite doll, whose thick-lashed eyes closed when you put her down for a nap – you never got tired of dressing and undressing her. The plush bear who you took everywhere until he was threadbare, and your parents bought you a new, identical one but it just wasn’t the same. The Han Solo action figure that you kind of had a crush on.
There’s no magic formula to determine which toys will earn a kid’s undying devotion, but that’s okay: a varied play diet full of toys suited to your child’s interests and developmental stage will provide plenty of learning and fun. And our selection covers all the bases with items we know kids love – because we know toys. read more
We know that you’re looking for baby toys that help your baby develop her body and mind, so we’ve got tons of rattles, teethers, play mats, plush, mobiles, activity toys, and more, many of which our babies used and loved.

We’ve got action figures and dolls, arts and crafts galore, and games that bring the family together.
And we’ve got expert staff who know our product catalog inside-out, and how to match the right toy to the right kid. So if you’re not sure which toy will make the perfect gift, ask us - send an email to email@example.com! show less
The jargon of the parenting world may sound incomprehensible to a newcomer. Phrases like “attachment parenting,” “travel system,” “LATCH system,” and “nipple confusion” can be baffling. So the more advice you can get from people who have been in the trenches themselves, the better, especially when you’re purchasing essential items like strollers.
So you've come to the right place! Magic Beans carries only the best brands of strollers, and only the best models from those stroller brands. We’re parents ourselves, and we’ve wheeled many a stroller down a snowy city street or a slick suburban sidewalk, so we understand what you’re looking for, and what you need. We know which strollers fit which families, and we have excellent stroller options for every kind of lifestyle. For an even better guide to choosing the right stroller for you, check out our Stroller Buying Guide. read more
Are you a sporty family? You may want a rugged all-terrain stroller, or an athletic jogging stroller. A subway-riding family? You may want an elegant hybrid stroller, or a convenient lightweight stroller. Got twins, or two kids of different ages?

Feeling fashion-forward? Frequent travelers may benefit from the Orbit Baby G3 Travel System. And nearly everyone likes the hugely popular BOB Revolution FLEX Jogging Stroller.
There’s even more to it than that – but that’s okay, because we’re here to help.

Think of new parenthood as a year-long trek through a country that you’ve never visited before. You may know a bit about the culture and terrain, but there’s no definitive map, and the inhabitants don’t speak your language.
It’s a good thing that other people have thoroughly explored this territory and can guide you on your way through Babyland. We can set you up with all the equipment you’ll need on your journey: baby carriers that make it easy to tote your tot, whether you’re climbing mountains or just hanging around the house; a variety of diaper bags that includes options for every Mommy style; baby bouncers and baby rockers to help you soothe your child to sleep; and baby monitors and babyproofing equipment to ease your worries.
And all of your favorite brands are available to equip you on your voyage: carriers from Ergo Baby, Baby Bjorn, Moby Wrap and more; diaper bags from Skip Hop, Petunia Pickle Bottom and others; the MamaRoo Bouncer; and hundreds of other companies and products you trust.
Babyland isn’t very far away – but at least you’re not traveling alone. Get your baby gear from the experts at Magic Beans, and if you’re not sure which way to go, we’ve got personal shoppers and a registry service to give you a hand.
For the baby’s comfort, we have an assortment of cribs and bassinets that boast modern style and sturdy, safe construction. Try one of the classically beautiful cribs from Oeuf NYC or Bloom Baby, or go your own way with the unique Stokke Sleepi crib. Most of our cribs transform into toddler beds, too. Top them off with mattresses from brands including Naturepedic and Nook, and our top-notch selection of crib bedding.
For your comfort, you’ll want a really, really good nursing chair. Pamper yourself with one of the stunning, luxuriously comfortable gliders and rockers from Monte Designs. Add an ottoman and put your feet up – you deserve it!
And to make life easier all around, we’ve got an excellent selection of nursery furniture and accessories, dressers, changing tables, high chairs, travel cribs, playroom furniture, and more.
Feeding your baby means introducing her to all of the wonderful flavors of the world: sweet, savory, sour, and salty. It also means she’ll introduce those flavors to your floors, walls, ceilings, and blouse. Having the right gear makes it easier to get as much nutrition as possible into your baby, and as little as possible ground into your carpets.
Whether you start out with the breast, the bottle, or both, we’ve got plenty of items to help you channel that milky goodness into your baby. If you’re breastfeeding, we’ve got nursing bras, nursing pillows, breast pumps, nursing covers, breastmilk storage bags, and more from beloved brands like Medela, Boppy, Bravado, and Bebe Au Lait. We’ve got bottles too, with BPA-free offerings from Dr. Brown’s, Lifefactory, and more.
And then there’s the phase where you introduce solids – if you want to make baby food at home, Magic Beans is the place for you! Check out the cute and convenient Beaba Babycook, feeding products from Boon and OXO, and more. We’ve got stylish high chairs from Bloom, Boon, OXO, and Baby Bjorn, plus the well-loved Tripp Trapp from Stokke.
It can feel downright Sisyphean to keep a small person clean who doesn’t understand the rules of hygiene (and has limited control over his bodily functions). But as you know, “diaper” spelled backwards is “repaid,” and you’re repaid every day for your efforts as you watch your happy baby grow and thrive.
In the meantime, though, having the right equipment will make the pre-potty years easier. The Bath, Potty & Diapering department at Magic Beans is your one-stop baby cleanliness shop, designed to equip you with everything you need to keep your favorite little person happy, healthy, and sweet-smelling… and eventually, to teach him how to handle this business on his own. read more
Your child’s skin is delicate, so our Baby Bath & Skincare section focuses on items that are natural and gentle. We have a huge selection of baby shampoo, skin creams, bubble baths, sunscreens, and lotions from top brands including Mustela, MD Moms, and Aden + Anais. For safety and comfort, our Towels & Tubs section is loaded with innovative and comfy baby bathtubs, plushy hooded towels, and more. And have we got bath toys? Oh my, yes! Fascinate infants and make your toddler giggle with bath toys from Alex Toys and Boon Baby.
Diapering isn’t anyone’s favorite part of parenthood, but making it a little cuter helps, and we can’t think of anything more adorable than a toddler scuttling around in the totally dye, chlorine, and fragrance-free (and totally cute!) Honest Company Diapers. Check out all their fun designs, and all the other items that make diapering easier, too, including the Diaper Dekor Plus and Ubbi Steel Diaper Pail, plus changing mats, changing pads, reusable baby wipes, and more.
And finally, when little girls and boys become “big” girls and boys, our Potty Training department is full of tools to ease the transition out of diapers. Try potty chairs or toilet seats from Baby Bjorn! show less
Just look at those chubby cheeks, those teeny toes, those perfect little fists: your baby doesn’t need a single article of clothing to enhance her cuteness. Nevertheless, baby clothing is necessary to keep babies warm and comfy (and to avoid raised eyebrows). So, we do our best to find clothes and accessories that enhance the natural charm of every child.
We have all the basic baby clothes you’ll need, from onesies to layette gowns to baby swimsuits to teeny teeshirts to even teenier socks, which really take baby cuteness to the next level. Everything is made with top-quality fabrics: KicKee Pants baby clothing is made with incredibly soft bamboo viscose that’s irresistibly snuggly and does a great job at wicking moisture away from your baby’s delicate skin. You’ll find other items in our selection made with wholesome organic cotton and gentle, fuzzy fleece. And baby bodysuits from Magnificent Baby fasten with magnets, making it easy to get even the squirmiest, wiggliest baby dressed and warm.
At bedtime, it’s important for babies to be bundled up tight, and we’ve got lots of swaddling blankets and receiving blankets to keep infants warm, calm, and snug. Check out some of our beautiful muslin wraps from Aden + Anais, and innovative swaddlers from NüRoo, Summer Infant, and Nested Bean.
Baby shoes and socks bring the cuteness like nothing else: there’s just something about the teeny-ness of infant feet that makes every grownup squeal with delight. Add some baby socks from Trumpette, and irresistible little feet become even more irresistible. When baby begins to take his first steps outside, Robeez set the standard for protecting baby feet, and have soft soles that are correctly designed for foot development. We have baby boots too, for both rain and snow.
Your need for baby hats and baby accessories changes with the seasons: in the warmer months, your baby will need a warm fleece hat to keep his ears warm, and cute mittens to protect teeny hands from the chill. How about some adorable Bearhands, which turn little hands into paws? In the summer, baby hats protect little faces from the sun, and we even have teeny baby and child sunglasses so your kid will look as cool as he feels!
Finally, our rain gear section has cute kid-sized umbrellas, baby raincoats, and boots that are made for splashin’ – and that’s just what they’ll do!
And don’t forget that baby clothing and baby layette items make awesome baby gifts, so don’t go to a baby shower without consulting these pages first! Babies grow out of their stylish mini-ensembles at tremendous speed, so make sure your loved ones are fully equipped.
Kids and parents both love the whimsical animal designs on the eco-friendly products from 3 Sprouts. Check out their adorable hooded towels for babies, with animal faces and ears, their cute and practical polyester storage boxes, and their charming organic canvas caddy/totes.
The name 4moms actually comes from the very first focus group the company had. This group was made up of five moms, but they thought "4moms" had a better ring to it than "5moms" so that's what they went with. Since 2005, 4moms has been dedicated to finding innovative solutions to make parenting tasks easier and more enjoyable for families all over the globe.
The produce only a limited line of products, each being one of the most advanced and easy-to-use of its field. From their Clearwater tub to the MamaRoo rocker, parents everywhere love 4moms for their exceptional products.
Experience the magic of muslin! Muslin fabric is the center of everything Aden + Anais does, starting with their famous swaddle blankets, which are one of our number one baby essentials. Swaddling helps babies sleep, and the breathable weave of muslin ensures that babies aren’t too warm or too cold. And Aden + Anais Muslin Swaddle Blankets are as versatile and useful as they are beautiful: they work as stroller blankets, tummy time blankets, nursing covers, and more.
Aden + Anais was founded by Aussie mom Raegan Moya in 2006, inspired by her search in the US for the soft, breathable muslin baby wraps she remembered from her home country. Finding none, Raegan created her own, and they’ve been a huge hit!
From their famous receiving blankets, Aden + Anais have expanded their collection to toddler bedding (including the well-loved Aden + Anais Dream Blanket), sleeping bags, skin care, baby bath wraps and toddler towels, Burpy Bibs, and more. The beloved swaddle blankets are also now available in cotton muslin fabric, bamboo fiber muslin, or natural Merino wool.
And, new for July 2015: Aden + Anais Layette Collection! These gorgeous 100% breathable cotton muslin outfits for babies are perfect for the summer and will get softer with every wash. A perfect gift for expectant moms!
It’s a fact: everyone loves Alex Toys. Babies love Alex Toys because their baby toys are designed to be entertaining and stimulating to the littlest kids while aiding in their development. Toddlers love the bath toys and art kits from Alex Toys because they help kids exercise their creativity. Older kids love the fashion craft kits and outdoor toys from Alex Toys because these activities are fun to do with their friends.

Despite the name, Baby Jogger strollers aren’t just for athletic parents. At high speeds or low, these sporty strollers merge comfort and convenience, which is why you’ll see so many Baby Jogger City Mini strollers on your city block. The Baby Jogger City Mini GT stroller is built for rougher terrain, and the Summit jogging stroller models add jogging capabilities for a great athletic experience for parents and babies, together.
All Baby Jogger strollers are manufactured using a staged assembly process designed to reduce the margin of error, making these sturdy little beauties last for many years of heavy use. But perhaps the best thing about Baby Jogger strollers is the fantastic Quick-Fold technology. It never ceases to amaze us how a completely solid stroller can fold neatly in two in a single step, just by lifting a strap. Try it and see – we suspect you’ll be hooked. We certainly are.
When you hear the word “baby carrier,” chances are, you think of Baby Bjorn. The iconic Baby Bjorn baby carriers have carried over 30 million children over the course of over 50 years, and they’re still going strong. Not that this beloved Swedish brand has stayed static over all those years: their carrier selection is constantly changing to meet the needs of new parents and apply the latest technology and knowledge about what babies need. The current models, including the Baby Bjorn Miracle Carrier and the Baby Bjorn Carrier One, are designed to make it as comfortable as possible to carry your baby everywhere you go – and we know that babywearing is a good practice for a happy baby.
Gabby Caperon had already mastered sailing and rock climbing before she took on the biggest challenge of all: motherhood. When her adventures in babywearing led her to combine the virtues of a Mei Tai baby carrier, a ring sling, and a hiking backpack, she founded Beco Baby, and we’ve got plenty of Beco here for you!
Beco Baby’s designs include the popular Beco Butterfly 2 baby carrier, which allows for front or back carrying, as well as the Beco Gemini baby carrier, which is super-comfortable and easy to put on. Beco’s gorgeous vintage-styled patterns are well-loved by both moms and dads, and many of these carriers come in organic fabrics which are both baby-safe and earth-safe. Ready to go Beco?
In an interview with IdeaMensch.com, Julien Mayot, founder of Blue Orange Games, said, “Simple things are coming back and will never be out of fashion. Spend real time with friends: shut down your TV, your computer and Facebook, call six friends and organize a board game night.”
We agree completely! And our selection from Blue Orange Games is a great place to start. These award-winning games are made with durable, eco-friendly materials, but most importantly, they are really, really fun. Take, for instance, Spot It!, a modern classic that both kids and grownups love – this delightful matching game is definitely one of our favorites. Or colorful balancing challenges like Chickyboom, Zimbbos, and Coocoo. Or strategy challenges like the beloved Gobblet.
There’s no end of fun with Blue Orange, and it’s fun that the whole family can have together. So what are you waiting for?
Who is BOB? BOB is your “Beast of Burden”: the ultimate all-terrain stroller! Founded in 1994, this company is famous for their tough-as-nails outdoor gear, including sport utility strollers, jogging strollers, and bike trailers.
Our fave in the BOB stable is the BOB Revolution FLEX Stroller, which improves on their classic model with a height-adjustable handlebar. This popular stroller model is versatile, maneuverable, and comfortable, and tears up sidewalks and trails with aplomb. This perennial bestseller is also a must when the weather gets rough: few other stroller models handle snowy sidewalks as well.
Along with the BOB Revolution SE, we also have its “twin” sister, the BOB Revolution FLEX Duallie – a double stroller to reckon with, in both town and country – and tons of accessories, including infant car seat adapters, weather shields, and more. Plus, in 2011, BOB joined forces with Britax, one of the most trusted brands in premium car seats and other juvenile products.
Check out our selection, and get your own: you’ll be very glad you met BOB!
Sometimes, your kids can show you the way to success. Rebecca Finell had a product, the Frog Pod, to launch, and Ryan Fernandez was looking for a business venture. When their kids started playing together in church, a match was made in business heaven.
The Frog Pod and other Boon Baby designs have a playful look that draws kids in, and practical functionality that makes them irresistible to parents. Take, for instance, the candy-colored Boon Flair High Chair, which uses a pneumatic lift for height adjustment. It’s practically a toy – and it’s also the perfect perch for feeding your baby. Or the Boon Squirt Spoon, which takes a few steps out of the process of feeding your baby, and looks great doing it, too.
Explore our assortment of Boon Baby bath toys, feeding products, baby food preparation products, room accessories, and more. They’ll enhance both the look and the function of your home – what’s not to love?

There’s no stroller quite like a Bugaboo. Sure, there are other luxury hybrid strollers on the market, but Bugaboo created the category, and continues to redefine it with each new model. Whether you’re hauling a growing brood with a Bugaboo Donkey, buzzing across town with a Bugaboo Bee, or taking a long city stroll with the Bugaboo Cameleon, you don’t need any celebrity endorsements (although there are many) to tell you that a Bugaboo stroller is something special.
The typical Bugaboo stroller is both simple and sophisticated, combining top-notch engineering and construction with magnificent handling. From this starting point, the Bugaboo models branch out into various directions, each with its own distinct personality and purpose.
For instance, if you’re all about traveling light, then you want the Bugaboo Bee stroller, the 18-pound beauty that folds with the seat on, and turns on a dime. If you need some more all-terrain capability and a ton of seating configurations, then you’re going to want the Bugaboo Cameleon stroller. And for serious carrying capacity, you want the Bugaboo Donkey stroller, which transforms from a single to a double stroller in three clicks – and back again!
These sleek, durable strollers continue to dominate the market because they do what they’re supposed to: Bugaboo strollers make your life easier, and they look goshdarned good while they’re doing it. And we’ve got tons of Bugaboo accessories to tweak your Bugaboo to perfection: get car seat adapters, foot muffs, cup holders, and more!

ERGObaby is dedicated to making it easier to wear your baby, and educating parents about babywearing, attachment parenting, and related topics. The original ERGObaby soft structured baby carrier revolutionized the market, and ERGO is constantly improving the comfort and ergonomics available to parents who want to keep their babies close all day long.
ERGObaby was established in Maui, Hawaii in 2002, when Karin Frost, a mom with a background in design, set forth to create a better baby carrier. The resulting carriers cradle your baby in a natural sitting position and evenly distribute weight between your hips and shoulders, enabling you to carry kids comfortably throughout infancy and toddlerhood. The Original ERGObaby Carrier, Organic ERGObaby Carrier, Performance Carrier, and Four Position 360 Baby Carrier all provide the same comfort and support, and the ERGObaby Wrap adds more options to the collection.
In 2011, ERGO acquired Orbit Baby, the creators of premium stroller travel systems featuring the Orbit SmartHub, which enables stroller seats to rotate 360 degrees. These two companies are continually innovating in the field of baby mobility, side by side, and are popular worldwide.
Green Toys makes an awesome line of classic children's toys constructed from recycled plastic and other environmentally friendly materials. This helps reduce fossil fuel use and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improving the overall health and happiness of the planet.
All Green Toys products are 100% made in the USA. To be more specific, they are produced in California, a state known for strict toy safety and environmental laws. It's cool to buy USA, but also think about this: transportation is one of the biggest contributors to greenhouse gasses. We all know driving less is good for mother nature, but did you ever think about how many miles a toy logs before it ends up in Magic Beans?
Our toys are truly local creations. Every step in the process, from milk container recycling to toy production to final assembly, occurs in California. Our raw materials and toys aren't shipped from overseas, which saves a lot of energy and reduces greenhouse gasses. It also guarantees your toys won't get seasick before they get to your home!
Green Toys products pass a plethora of tests, including:
* Consumer Safety Inprovement Act (CPSIA)
* Consumer Products Safety Standard Specification, ASTM F963
* California Prop. 65 restrictions on lead & cadmium
* FDA regulations for food contact
* Voluntary testing for no BPA (Bisphenol-A)
* International standards EN71 and ISO 8124

Take a group of girlfriends in ever-swinging London. Add over a decade of experience with luxury skincare, aromatherapy, and sourcing the best biochemists and dermatologists around. Factor in the personal experience of these ladies becoming busy mommies with their own skincare needs. The result is Mama Mio, a dynamite skincare line that is in over 700 stores in 8 countries, 150 premier spas, and countless homes.
With this line of products, moms of the world unite to get the very softest, most healthy, fabulously radiant skin possible. Using formulations of rich essential oils and vitamin complexes, Mama Mio products pamper all skin types during each stage of mommyhood
The Mama Mio ingredients form an all-star roster of skincare greats. The foundation of a number of their lotions and creams include the workhorse antioxidant CoQ10 for preventing collagen loss and shea butter for richly smooth skin, among others. Other ingredients include lovely oils from avocadoes, olives, almonds, primrose, and an array of other natural extracts.
Not only are the ingredients all-natural and wholesome, but they actually work. Besides all the clinical research, we use these skincare lotions and oils ourselves and can proudly vouch for them. Not a mom? Though Mama Mio products are specially formulated for moms at all stages, you don’t need to be pregnant to enjoy the beautiful results. No wonder we find our staff buying up these products themselves.

Oeuf evokes the image of simple, clean and intuitive design. But there's so much more.
Before the economic meltdown plaguing the world today, before green and eco friendly were the new buzz words and hottest trend, there was Oeuf. From the beginning, Oeuf has believed in designing products that offer real value to consumers without ever compromising on quality, of the highest order.
From making a conscious choice to manufacture in Europe versus China; from offering their clients furniture that is not only high quality but also multifunctional: a crib turns into a toddler bed, prolonging its usefulness far beyond the infant years; to always being mindful of its impact on the environment and the communities it serves. This is Oeuf.
From inception, Sophie and Michael were motivated by a desire to reduce unnecessary purchases and offer solutions to parents that made sense with the demands of a modern lifestyle. A French/American husband and wife team that is steadfast and relentless in its goal to keep Oeuf true to its mission. From an alpaca mitten to its Classic Crib, every inch of Oeuf's design is thoughtful and focused on three key principals: quality, practicality and function - all packaged in beautiful design. It's about a few essential, high quality and multifunctional, pieces that resonate with today's cash strapped consumers. And Oeuf operated this way, long before being smart about money and the environment became a survival strategy.
It all started with the birth of their first child in 2002. As part of a new generation of design-conscious and environmentally aware parents they had to consider a cross-section of factors as they endeavored to clarify the modern nursery.
