Brilliant! Best Unisex Toys and Gift Ideas for Young Children

Our kids really love to play together, which I am so thankful for! Our son and daughter are 25 months apart in age and they have totally different interests. My daughter is obsessed with princesses, crafting, unicorns and Fancy Nancy. On the other hand, my son loves all things trains, cars and balls. 

Even though they have different interests, they still manage to play together! I’ve definitely prayed about their relationship and I’ve encouraged sibling play throughout the years (see 10 activities babies and toddlers can do together). But I think another huge part of this is finding unisex toys our kids love. 

So with the holidays coming up and parents scrambling to decide what toys to get for their kids I decided to share some of our favorite unisex toys and gift ideas for young children.  

Trying to find toys both your daughter and son will love? Here is a list of 20 unisex toys perfect for your young kids this Christmas!

Almost all of these toys are items we own and personally love. There are a few items listed with a ** that we haven’t tested out, but are on our own personal gift idea list for this year! Affiliate links are included in this post.

Also be sure to scroll down and leave your favorite toys for siblings of different sexes in the comments below.

Building Toys

Our kids love to build forts and obstacle courses all over our house. They also love to build marble sets and castles or forts out of wooden blocks. These toys are perfect to build everything their little minds can imagine!
