13 Special Biblical Toys for Toddlers – That They Will Actually Play With

the best biblical toys for toddlers

Whether you are looking for a birthday gift or some new toys for church, having Biblical toys for toddlers will help them learn about the Lord. It’s amazing how many christ-centered toys are out there, but finding ones that your toddler actually likes is a different story.

I love having some biblical toys for my daughter to play with. Some are even quiet enough to bring with us to church. It’s really important that these toys not only teach them about the Lord but keep your kiddo entertained too.

As I put together this list, you will find that every item is Biblically based. My hope was to find toys that share God’s word while keeping them busy. Because let’s face it, what’s the point in buying them if they don’t find these toys interesting.

The Best Biblical Toys for Toddlers

When choosing Biblical toys for a toddler, it’s important to take into consideration what milestones they are at. They are growing and changing so much at this stage, so you will want to be sure the toy is appropriate for where they are at.

4. Reusable Sticker Pads with Bible Stories

Stickers are always a huge hit in our house. I love that these are reusable and can be taken to church!

The only downfall is that the stickers don’t always stay in place. I’m sure that’s because they are supposed to be reusable, but my daughter gets pretty frustrated.

It includes scenes of Daniel and the lion’s den, Jonah and the Whale, Noah’s Ark, and more!

5. Noahs Ark Shape Sorter Playset
