Have you ever had one of those days when you have to wonder if your toddler guzzled the rest of the coffee when you weren’t looking? You’re still half asleep and they’re bouncing off the walls, fully capable of running a marathon’s worth of mileage around the living room.
We’ve been there and it’s exhausting.
Best case scenario you toss them into the backyard for some outdoor play. But when it’s cold or rainy, sometimes indoors is the only option. Thankfully there are tons of toys for active toddlers that get them moving and using that energy for something safer than scaling the refrigerator. From toys that bounce to Montessori-approved climbing structures, we’ve rounded up some of the best ways to entertain the wild ones no matter how much space you have—and hopefully, they left you some coffee to enjoy a bit of peace while they play.
