I taught a class of kids 18 mo - 3 years and by far the standout winners amongst the kids were: toys they could sit and scoot or peddle on, Melissa and Doug puzzles (especially the one that is a bunch of different kinds of locks-apparently all kids want to grow up to break into things) Books-- the elephant and pig ones were really popular my favorite was Should I Share My Ice Cream, the pigeon books by the same author or company, dinosaurs love tacos, and the career ones like Ava Twist Scientist
