GUB kid gifts: 14 preschooler toys under $50

Posted by Ruby Wright in , , , , , ,

This is our first year creating a list of gifts GUB recommends for the little kids.
We wanted a way to share the information right from the place we found it online so we decided to give MonkeyWish a try.

I first learned about MonkeyWish at Blogalicious'12 I thought It was a cool tool and knew it would be perfect for us to share our  holiday guide. is a new generation gift registry that provides a place for members to add any item, from any store, for any occasion. Membership is free. Launched in 2012, MonkeyWish strives to provide a convenient service that allows members to add products from any retailers onto one, easy-to-manage list. Then, friends can view the member's list on MonkeyWish, and click directly to the retailer's site to make the actual purchase.
I added items to my list based off toys the kids either already have or have played with and loved!

I also added them recently so prices should be current. The holiday season is when I like a good deal so I tend to shop a little closer to the holidays.

We also wanted to feature toys that were under $50 that would be great gifts for under the tree or to stuff those stalkings.

You can view our list here:
no need to sign up but we highly recommend you do for any wish list you may need to create!
They are also mobile which means you can scan bar-codes directly from stores using your smartphones!!!!

This is an Item screenshot of a product on our list.

By clicking on the image in our list you get details such as price, description and where we found the item. You can also select purchase and it takes you right to the page!

And since it is the season for giving we'd love to give one Lucky GUB reader the chance to win 2 of our items from our list.

Toys listed were chosen by us and the brands did not seek us to share them with you. The above are as always our true and honest opinions


  1. This is really cool! Thanks for sharing!! We don't make wish lists but learning more about this type of tools will make for easier Holiday shopping!!!

  2. Awesome list! we don't usually create a list but i think now would be a great time to start!

  3. We don't make wish lists but Doll Face has taken to pointing out what she wants. Maybe when she gets a little older we will try to make a list. I know I make a list for myself cause the hubs needs it. lol. :)

  4. My little gals are still young enough that they do not create a wishlist. They do know what they want! Patricia. yellow_patricia at hotmail dot com

  9. Ruby, I am so proud of you for creating such an enriching blog! I have learned so much from you! :) Miss Special K, writes her wish list. I think doing something like this, will save us some time, and hand cramps from writing! ;) I wouldn't have known about monkeywish, if it wasn't for you. Thank you!!!

  10. Ruby, first off... I want to say that I am so proud to have been able to watch you create such an enriching blog! You are truly an inspiration! As for wish lists...Miss Special K writes her list. Seeing this, be something that I would try out. It might save us some time, and hand cramps from all that writing! ;) Thank you, for informing me of this!
