3 Year Old’s Favorite Toys


Thank you to Smiling Tree for gifting us Blaire’s wooden name puzzle. All thoughts and opinions are my own. The links in this post contain affiliate links and I will receive a small commission if you make a purchase after clicking on my link.

Our baby turns 3 next month! It’s. Insane. She’s so independent. She’s potty trained. She still really loves playing with babies and stuffed animals. They all have conversations and she even recently started telling them to “go stuffed” when one of us enters the room (it’s from Doc McStuffins for those of you who aren’t familiar!) 

Smiling Tree Wooden Name PuzzleIt’s been awhile since I’ve done a round up of her favorite things, so I figured what better time than the present, right?! She loves playing pretend and dress up, especially as Doc McStuffins, Catboy and any princess. She loves doing puzzles, cooking for us, reading books to us and watching movies. She wants to do everything herself, so having a stool in the different rooms of the house is a life saver. 3 Year Old's Favorite Toys

Since she’s so obsessed with puzzles, I was really, really excited to give her the wooden name puzzle. It is the perfect way to teach her how to spell her name. She is so good at putting it back together, and will spent 30 minutes doing it over and over again.

This little girl… I can’t believe she’s going to be three and then she’ll become a big sister just a few weeks later. She is so caring and sweet. I love to see her imagination shine through in everything she does. She catches on quickly, repeats everything and oh, boy does she keep us on our toes. 

What things did/does your three-year-old love to do and play with?

    She is such a cutie. I loved learning what my sons going to like next. He’s turning 2, and all about trucks. Basically anything with wheels makes him happy. I’m excited for the puzzle faze.

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome

  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
