Timberdoodle's Tiny Tots Curriculum Kit is jam-packed with everything you need to homeschool this precious age. This program is designed for the baby to two-year-old who is ready for an intentional approach to learning. It is perfect for new moms who want to enjoy their baby, but would love some direction on what to do with baby once he is fed and changed. It is equally fantastic for experienced moms who would like an easy way to ensure that baby receives focused time, just like the rest of the little learners.
We asked parents who used our Tiny Tots Kit how long they spent using these tools with their child, and they estimated that they spent an average of 1-3 hours a day on their kit. You’ll be able to plan yours to work best for you with your access to the online Timberdoodle Scheduler, included with your kit. Make sure you allow yourself and your child some time to find your own rhythm!

After A LOT of contemplation, I purchased a customized Tiny Tot Toddler Kit for my 20-month-old last spring. We used a few of the items right away, but most of the kit was packed away until fall. My original intent, in purchasing the kit, was to have something to occupy my little guy when his 3 older brothers started their homeschool charter (also using Timberdoodle kits😉). I’m happy to report that the toddler kit ended up being a wonderful fit for us and a purchase I do not regret!
If you are looking for some insight into how I ultimately made a decision, I’ll share my thoughts here. To start, my biggest concern was investing a large sum of money only to discover that my 2-year-old was too advanced for the toddler kit. I felt the Tiny Tots Kit was designed to be used primarily by babies/toddlers, and perhaps, at age 2, my little would be too old for most of the activities. However, when I looked at the preschool kit, I knew he was definitely not ready for most of the materials or concepts, especially without extensive help. I felt like he was in between the two kits which made the decision really difficult. The main reason I went with a customized toddler kit was because I needed things my little could complete on his own. I specifically needed activities that my little guy could do independently, either in his highchair or at a small table, while I worked on studies with his elementary brothers each morning. This kit “checked that box” and so much more!
How we organized:
To make things more manageable I sorted all the activities into five 40-quart clear plastic tote boxes, labeling each with a day of the week (Monday-Friday). All the materials, with the exception of the Pat Bells Station, fit into the totes. (To remind us to pull out the Pat Bells Station we put a matching weekday label on its box.) This made things super easy and allowed anyone in the household to grab the day’s tote. Our little guy was always SO excited to open the tote and see the activities inside. I appreciated that they were safe, fun and educational. The activities were simple enough that he could complete them on his own but engaging enough to keep him occupied and learning.
One thing to note:
If you have a toddler that chews on everything you will need to provide some closer supervision with some of the kit’s contents! Since we wanted our little guy to be able to work with limited direct instruction, we found it necessary to remove the Rubbabu Animal Shape Sorter and Once Upon a Stem set. We were worried enough about his safety, and the destruction of those items, so it was just easier to set these things aside. We plan on re-introducing the Once Upon a Stem set sometime after he turns three. Ultimately, that is the beauty of the toddler kit! Many of the items grow with the child and are useful beyond the age of 2. The Earth Tones Rainbow Pebbles, Pixel Baby, Very First Book of Things to Spot books, Once Upon a Stem, Hide & Seek Polar Bear, Gymnic Over Ball and Pat Bells Station are among the many items I see us utilizing well into the next year!
What was missing:
There were a few things I felt were missing from this kit, so I made some additions to complete the daily totes. I wanted a “string bead” or “lacing” type activity and ended up purchasing these separately. We also added some wood animal stacking blocks and a wood shape sorter. The thing I wished for most was a STEM type bath toy – I know the Once Upon a Stem set is recommended for the bath – but I was looking for a more traditional bath type item with pouring cups and such. Other than that, I’ve been very pleased with our purchase and that’s why I’m back. I’m ready to purchase a preschool kit so our little guy will have his own curriculum for the fall and I’m confident I won’t be disappointed after our satisfaction with the Tiny Tots Kit!!!
I almost did 4 stars because of the fact that there are a few things that I feel are a bit useless in the kit. The infant kit all together I feel is a waste but if you do the older kid kit it’s great for right before preschool age. My girl doesn’t care for some of the things included and not much educational value but I did 5 stars because it does in fact have a lot of great toys and learning activities as well. She has learned her colors and shapes and a variety of animals because of this kit and I realized afterword that I can make a custom kit and take out any of the waste of money things I feel are in the kit. Overall this is a great buy for young kids not ready to start school.
Our baby and toddler love this!
We loved this kit. We have foster children ages 8 months and 2 years and this was perfect for them. I needed toys for the baby and I was thrilled to get high quality toys that help with development. Our 2yo likes to homeschool with our older children so this gave her plenty of activities to do and she has learned so much already. We loved it so much we went back and bought the toddler kit for our grandson who is 18 months.
I love that we were able to customize the kit. It helped lower the cost while still keeping some of the great products available.
