From Toddler to Big Kid
From Toddler to Big Kid

Has your toddler grown up right before your very eyes? At around age 5, you’ll start to notice that your kiddo isn’t interested in most of their “toddler stuff” anymore, even though they seemed just fine with it a few months ago. Here are some typical items that older toddlers start to transition out of quickly and ways you can keep them feeling just like a big kid:

  • Toys. If your kiddo isn’t using most of their toys anymore and seems bored, it could be because they are just not interested in them anymore and want more “big kid” items. Start by going through the toys together to donate or repurpose the ones they haven’t used in a while. Start to gradually bring in big kid toys to fulfill their needs, and opt for fewer toys nowadays. Consider musical instruments, puzzles, physical activity toys, or science kits instead.
  • Bedtime essentials. As much as it may break your heart, it may be time to ditch those Blippi bedsheets and grab some big kid ones instead. If they haven’t already made the transition to a big kid bed yet, it might be happening very soon! You might also want to take a look around their room—Do they still need that monitor camera? How about that changing table pad? Are they ready for some big kid decorations now?
  • Mealtime essentials. Having a Cocomelon lunchbox in 1st grade might not be the right call. Instead, opt for something more generic that is still functional. Silicone lunchboxes are often too bright for most older toddlers; it might be time to make the switch to stainless steel. The plus side? Stainless steel mealtime essentials are great for adults, too!
