Shark toys…if you’ve found this post you probably have a kid who loves those mysterious creatures of the deep.
There are two rites of passage for boys in our family…first the dinosaur phase (obsession!) during which we read, eat, talk, play dinosaurs 24/7. A few years later they go through the equally obsessive shark phase. Right now, son #3 is deep in the shark phase and I know far more about sharks and shark toys than I ever thought I would.
Whenever I think about gifts for kids, I try to play into their interests. Sharks are such interesting creatures to kids because they are ferocious looking, there are SO many sizes and types, and they are mysterious. Did you know that sharks have an extra sense? Did you know that sharks cannot survive in captivity? Did you know that sharks don’t get cancer? There are lots of things we could probably learn from sharks and maybe your child is the future marine biologist who will unlock all of those secrets!
From Shark books (Shark-o-pedia is our favorite!) to cuddly shark stuffed animals that will make your child feel brave in the dark, shark puzzles, shark toys and so many other shark gift ideas, I hope these 27 shark toys and gifts are perfect for the child on your list.
