Are you a parent or grandparent looking for the perfect Christmas gift for your little avgeek? We’re here to help make your holiday shopping a bit easier this year. It’s never too early to encourage your little one to become a full-fledged avgeek. We’ve compiled a list of gift ideas for any boy or girl who loves airplanes.
Fat Brain Toys Airport Terminal and Jet Plane Playset
We put this toy first because it is the go-to play toy in our avgeek house. Every morning this talking plane (without engines–odd) is the first thing pulled off the toy shelf. The airport scene is remarkably interactive. It has a control tower, working baggage claim, and a lightup departures and arrivals board with announcements. It even has a security checkpoint for your little TSA-wannabe. It was worth every penny for our family. Order it here.
Green Toys Airplane and Board Book
Every boy and girl deserves an airplane for Christmas. If you’ve lived around a toddler before, you want a toy that is safe, nearly indestructible, and fun. This plane fits the bill. Made in the USA with BPA free PVC, the toy comes with a book that will hold up to even the most destructive tantrums. Click on the link above to order from Amazon.
LEGO DUPLO Town Airport
You can’t go wrong with building blocks! Everyone loves legos. Unfortunately, those little blocks are too small for toddlers. Instead, go for Duplos! These blocks are just like legos but bigger and safer for your little one. This airport set is pretty cute. It features a mini DC-9 (ish) jet, a tower, and enough little people to drive some creative play. You can buy this set from Amazon here.
Good Night Planes Book
Little kids love books before bedtime. And every little one in our family loves this book because it features big, colorful pictures of airplanes. Parents love this book too because you can read it quickly before bed! It’s a board book which means that it is really difficult (nearly impossible) to tear the pages. Order it here.
