Our Top Toys For The Holidays

Posted by Paige Hutton on

The elves are already hard at work crafting the best gifts for the holidays and the season of gifting is in full swing at Bella Luna Toys. We know it can be overwhelming to move up your holiday shopping earlier than ever before but we're here to help! We have the perfect gifts for children of every age and stage.

We asked the Bella Luna staff to weigh in on their favorite toys for 2021. These toys are functional, beautiful, heirloom quality and perfect to add to your registry or wishlist! Here's what our toy experts had to say!

Grimm's wooden nesting bowls in the blue-rainbow color way

We have been carrying the Wooden Rainbow Nesting Bowls from Grimm’s Spiel & Holz at Bella Luna Toys from the very beginning. Though this set is very simple, it is my favorite gift for a new baby. Babies love to stack and nest the bowls. As they get older, toddlers use them for sorting and preschoolers love using them for storing little treasures. I had a set of these same bowls in my classroom that are still in use 20 years later. - Sarah Baldwin 

Grimm's nesting bowls are perfect for 12 months and up

Grimm's Four Temperaments (sanguine, choleric, melancholic and phlegmatic) Puzzle in a tray

I was drawn to the Grimm's Four Temperaments Puzzle from the second I saw it. It checks off many of the boxes that make an outstanding toy (in my opinion) including open-ended play, colorful/beautiful design, easy to clean-up and put away, something that children can play with independently or together with others, and children can really use their imagination to tell different stories.  My nephew and I will play with this together for hours and it’s the type of toy that will never go out of style! - Willie W.

Grimm's Four Temperaments Puzzle is ideal for preschool-aged children through adults.

Wishbone mini flip Christmas present for babies and toddlers

Wishbone Flips - It’s such a clever, thoughtful design, made by wonderful people. Great toy to promote movement and activity. And there's space underneath to bring a stuffed animal along for the ride! -Chris P.

Wishbone flips come in mini and full size. The Mini is recommended for children 9 months through 3 years and the full-sized version is recommended for children 1 - 5 years of age.

Organic Gray Warming Goose Pillow that contains pure natural spelt that can be warmed in the oven and provide comfort to children.

It’s hard to choose! How about the Organic Gray Goose Warming Pillow. Cute, cozy and soothing. - Sawyer S.

The Organic Gray Goose Warming Pillow can be snuggled from infancy well into adulthood.

Sawdust & Rainbows wooden waldorf playstand

Playstands are so versatile! They can become a kitchen, fort, puppet theater, pirate ship, book nook, fairy house... anything your child can dream up! The ultimate open-ended plaything. - Susan K.

Wooden toaster toy with two slots for pretend food that can be popped up.

I love the wooden toaster! I love toast even if I can’t eat it. The toy is so satisfying to use, and wonderfully simple at the same time. - Rachel W.

The Wooden Toy Toaster is fun for children 3 years of age and older.

Labyrinth Balance Board christmas gifts for 8 to 10 year olds

The Labyrinth Wooden Balance Board is a fun way to get moving and can get more challenging when you add more balls to the maze. Perfect to tuck under the tree for children 5 and up. -Christine N.

green heavy baby Waldorf doll that is filled with lavender

I love the Little Heavy Babies! They are simply irresistible! Any child would love to hold and care for this endearing doll. Did I mention they smell like lavender? - Toni A.

Our Heavy Babies come in two sizes. Little Heavy Baby is for children under four and the larger Heavy Baby is for children four and up.

Wooden Ostheimer bear

One of my favorite wooden toys is my Ostheimer bear. He comes with me on all of my trips. It's super sturdy and can withstand indoor and outdoor play. - Paige H.

The Ostheimer Bear is a perfect playmate from birth.
