2013 Educational Stocking Stuffers for Kids List By Age

It's the holiday season, and we know you're looking for stocking stuffers that are healthy, educational and that are not candy.  Let's face it, a little bit of candy is fine - a whole stocking of it is too much for little stomachs.  So, we have some great suggestions for small learning toys and educational games for kids that fit in a stocking by age to make your shopping easy and convenient.  They are easy on the budget, too!

Babies and toddlers will enjoy brightly colored toy cars and animals that make sounds when squeezed like this cute little lamb.  These gifts are cute, affordable, and can be played with in different ways as babies mature into toddlers - extending the life and value of these toys.
