Best Baby and Toddler Toys of 2020

We scoured the internet for reviews, asked all our mom friends, and got rid of the products that were poorly built, contain harmful chemicals, or are otherwise not well reviewed. Then we conducted hands-on reviews of over 25 remaining baby and toddler toys. Below are the best toys we could find for babies from 6-24 months of age, for 2020. They make great birthday gifts for babies! We came to the realization that most of the toys we learned about were made by just a few companies, including "B" and Melissa & Doug. Here is what we found:

1. The "B" line of Baby Toys, including blocks, instruments, ball toys, and other fantastic and high quality items. These are fun, high quality, and free of all harmful chemicals like BPA, phthalates, and lead. These are sturdy long-lasting toys that will last for many years and get handed down through generations. Many of their products are made from recycled materials, all of their packaging can be recycled, and they donate 10 cents for every toy sold to the "Free the Children" charity. So these are great toys and the company is doing good things with your money. Here are some of their best products for 6-24 months.

2. Melissa & Doug Toys, including play houses, puzzles, cooking sets, tool kits, dress-up sets, shape sorters, and many other great wooden toys. Ever wonder what happened to all those great hand-made wooden toys you had when you were a kid? They were pushed out by the plastics craze of the 80's and 90's. Well, 25 years ago Melissa & Doug began a toy revolution in Doug's parents' basement - today, they are one of the most popular toy makers in the country. High quality wooden toys, sturdy and reliable, and kids love them! Here are some of their best products for kids 6-24 months.
