Fit Gift Guide: Healthy Toddler

The gift giving holidays are just around the corner and to spare you some of the last minute shopping stress the Sugar sites are creating ever helpful gift guides.

Now, if you happen to be looking for a gift for a toddler, I have three suggestions that not only get the toddler moving but also gives her mom a few moments to breathe when the child is occupied. Here are three great ways to help a mommy out by encouraging health and fitness in her child, which we all know can be tough with a stubborn toddler ruling the household.

  • What a better way to get your toddler moving than the YogaKids 2: ABC by Gaiam. The DVD provides a nice introduction to yoga philosophy. It is a wonderful and physical way to hang out with your kids.
  • Hullabaloo gets kids thinking fast while bouncing, twisting, spinning, high-fiving, and even dancing. The Hullabaloo DVD Game celebrates animals from all over the world and provides hours and hours of play-along fun.
  • The Smart Cycle is a stationary bike, a learning center, and an arcade game system — all rolled into one! As your toddler pedals, her favorite character friends guide her through learning discoveries, games, and even exciting races.

A stationary bike for toddlers? Isn't that just a TAD ridiculous? When I was 3, my parents got me a tricycle. And I would ride it around ALL THE TIME, on the sidewalk in the summer and in the basement in the winter. When I was older, I had a jump rope and we used to play hopscotch outside. It just goes to show that you don't need fancy equipment to be a healthy kid.

oh man that smartcycle looks like the coolest thing I've ever seen for a kid. I wish this was around when I was little. can they make one for adults?? haha...I mean, make a video game that incorporates a stationary bike and you can race with it. that would be amazing!! the greatest part about that toy, is that the video games are also learning tools. who came up with this? he/she is a genius

My boyfriend's kids are only getting fit presents from me. I was actually looking for a yoga DVD for the little one and this one looks perfect. I am buying her a girlie pink yoga mat and a yoga DVD for christmas. Also a pair of shoes for climbing because she wants to try climbing with me.The boys will get tennis gear I think. I totally agree with this post, buy your kids something that get them moving, not another computer game or that kind of thing!
