Stocking Stuffers for Toddlers

BadgerBalm SPF

Unicorn Horn Sidewalk Chalk– These unicorn horns are super fun and are chunky perfect for chubby toddler hands. Individually wrapped, you can tuck a few into your kiddo’s stocking and squirrel away the rest for spring.

Babiators Sunglasses– Super cute and the UVA/UVB protection from sun or snow to protect your toddler’s developing eyes. For younger toddlers, do splurge for the set with a strap to keep them from sliding off.
