Interactive Unicorn Toys

  • Ages: 2-5 years old
  • Skills: Gross motor development and balance.
  • Features: This bouncer toy can be used for hours of fun! It comes with included pump. Reviewers mention that this is for younger children, but can hold older children. Some users even boast that it has held up to about 80 pounds, though it is not intended for rough play. The vinyl is easy to clean. It contains no US banned phthalates and heavy metal elements
  • Notes: Need to supervise children under age 3. This It is an inflated toy, so long-term it will need to be reinflated, and is a risk for breaking. However, overwhelmingly this product has high reviews for quality and price.

  • Notes: They are small, but great for unicorn lovers who want a portable, interactive unicorn to bring along with them.
  • Ages: 18 months – 6 (the manufacturer’s recommended age range for this rocking horse is 18 months to 10 years old. However, I don’t think it would be comfortable for older children).
  • Features: Made of sturdy plastic, so it’s easy to clean and maintain. Other unicorn rocking horses on the market are plush and hard to spot clean. This model can stand the test of time.
  • Skills: gross motor development and balance.

  • Ages: 2-6 years old
  • Features: This unicorn tent is easy to store and sets up in 10 minutes or less.
  • Skills: dramatic play and promoting the Enclosure Schema.
  • Notes: This tent only has one entrance, so it doesn’t have great air flow and can get warm inside the tent. This is perfect for passive play– sitting inside and reading, pretend camping, etc. Since it’s lightweight, it doesn’t hold up well to rough, active play.
  • Ages: 4-11 years old
  • Features: Comes with everything you need to create a “unicorn terrarium.” Children can layer included dirt, rocks, soil, and chia seeds. Then, they put their little unicorn friend and lights on top inside. The chia grass begins to grow in about 10 days!
  • Notes: Some reviewers did say that the lights did not work for long, so the “night light” function may be short lived. Since it grows live seeds, it is possible that they won’t grow due to issues such as over-watering. However, I’ve found that framing all live projects as a way to learn how to take care of something and understand if it doesn’t work the way we thought it would.
  • Skills: STEM, empathy, fine motor development.
  • Ages: 7-12 years old

One of my favorite parts of parenting is leaning into whatever captures my child’s imagination and interest. Embracing what they love is a great way to connect, promote language, and promote confidence. Cheers, to childhood magic.
