Toys that Start with J [33 Ideas]

Today I am continuing on with our toy-based show and tell series and I’m sharing my list of 33 toys that start with J.

If you have a preschooler or kindergartener with a letter of the week show and tell then you need to check out this list of Toys that Start with J.

A lot of preschool programs do a letter of the week show and tell activity and I’m sharing this in the hopes that it can help some of you moms and dads out there.

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!

General Tips

  • 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’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 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!
