These are just a few of the hottest new toys for spring 2017 that are perfect for your toddler and preschooler. My personal favorite is the Pacific Play Tent. We had one of their tents when my son was a little younger and it was pretty awesome. The wooden puzzles were always a big hit, too. I do suggest keeping the pieces together in a bag or some sort of small box so they don’t end up lost (or, in our case, eaten by a dog!).
