In this post, you will find toddler stocking stuffer ideas that range from practical items to fun games and toys.
Opening a stocking on Christmas day was one of my favourite things to do as a kid.
We would grab our stockings and sit on my Mum and Dad’s bed opening the small presents as soon as we woke up.
Toddler stockings are a lovely way to start Christmas morning.
Having your little one open a few smaller presents from their stocking is a good way to hold them off so you can enjoy breakfast before the chaos starts!
However, it can be a challenge finding the right sized things to fit inside them. This means they often get filled with junk that kids don’t actually use.
So I have put together a list of toddler stocking fillers that will not only fit, but kids will love and use.

1. Bath Crayons
Let your toddler unleash their inner artist with bath crayons.
They can be used on the walls and in the bathtub. All you have to do is wash them off afterwards.
Make bath time extra fun by changing the colour of the water!
Just one of these tablets changes the water colour and you can mix more than one to make a different colour. These Munchkin colour tablets set come with 2 fun toy dispensers too.
3. Bath Toys
Bath toys make great toddler stocking fillers because they’re often small in size.
These Munchkin bubbles have characters inside that move and they float too.
These Disney bath toys are perfect for little hands to squeeze and refill.
This fun toy allows toddlers to create lots of bubbles in the bathtub whilst improving their hand-eye coordination.
5. Play Doh
Kids of all ages love Play Doh and there are so many games and activities you can do with it.
It’s suitable for kids over 2 years old and helps little ones strengthen the muscles in their hands. It also develops their creativity.
Did you know that dentists recommend you change a toddler’s toothbrush every 3 months?
Therefore, Christmas is an ideal time to buy a new one for your toddler’s stocking.
Take the stress out of brushing your toddler’s teeth with this baby electric toothbrush. It comes in pink or blue and has a smart LED timer and soft nylon bristles.
There’s conflicting information around the recommended age kids can use an electric toothbrush.
If you’re unsure, stick with a manual toothbrush such as Dr Brown’s crocodile toothbrush.
Encourage self-feeding with toddler-friendly utensils.
This set comes with a carry case, which is perfect for when you’re out and about.
This mesmerising sensory toy is a great way to distract and calm down toddlers. It’s also great for kids with ADHD and Autism.
These scavenger hunt cards will provide plenty of fun.
They’re a great way to get toddlers to burn off energy, especially on rainy days when they’ve been stuck indoors all day.
The illustrations tell toddlers what items to find and also give instructions of what to do when they’ve found the items.
10. Toddler socks
No stocking is complete without socks! These Sesame street socks have all of the characters (Elmo, Big Bird, Cookie, Monster, Oscar the Grouch, Zoe and Abby).
They also have grippers on the bottom which are perfect for toddlers that are always on the go.
Fubbles allow toddlers to blow their own bubbles with their no-spill container.
The container is easy to refill and works with any bubble solution!
A comforter is a baby toy that I recommended (link). If your toddler still uses theirs (mine does), then they will love a new one for Christmas.
This Jelly Cat comforter is super soft and the blanket part of it is a lot bigger than other comforters.
So there are a few awesome toddler stocking stuffer ideas that aren’t junk and are small enough to fit in your little one’s stocking.
