Toys That Start with I (30 Ideas!)

I’m starting a new series today that is an offshoot of my letter of the week show and tell ideas series… “Toys That Start with…”. Today I am sharing a list of 30 toys that start with I.

Toys That Start with I: List of 20 Ideas for Toys That Start with I

It doesn’t seem like it would be super hard but it is kind of a tricky one so hopefully this list will give you some great ideas for you and your preschooler!

In my show and tell posts I included anything that I could think of that a family might have on hand for a child to take in for show and tell but I know that sometimes the assignment is just limited to toys that start with the letter of the week.

So I’m making a new series that’s all toys and I’m challenging myself to come up with even more toys than were on my original lists. I went through my kids’ toys, thought about their cousins’ and friends’ toys, and even walked the toy aisle scouring for ideas.

If you have some toy ideas to add to the list please let me know in the comments below! I might be missing something totally obvious!

General Tips

  • If you’re looking at this list for ideas for a weekly toy-focused show and tell then set an alarm for the night before to remind you about it. This way you’re not scrambling the morning of looking for something.
  • If you get stuck try to think of names of characters that you might have a toy of… dolls, action figures, stuffed animals, etc.
  • If you have some time one day then go ahead and figure out some ideas for show and tell for a few letters and jot them down. Future you will love this!
