Yellow Submarine Hooded Towel by Rebecca Huang
Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or just a good friend, having a toddler in your life means having someone fun to buy presents for!

Here at Mouse + Magpie, we partner with talented artists to create items such as pillows, blankets, and towels that not only serve a functional purpose, but make for interactive, imaginative gifts for toddlers.
Even though they’re not categorically “toys,” your toddler will still spend hours playing with their soft new friends. Browse through our toddler gift guide to find a present your favorite little one is sure to love.
