Last year, I started my series of posts on show and tell items from A to Z to help parents (like me) who were scrambling to find a show and tell item for their kids at the last minute. I included foods from A to Z, books for each letter of the alphabet, and toys for every letter as well. I decided to dive a little deeper and create move comprehensive lists for toys that start with each letter from A to Z – and here I am sharing the list of toys that start with the letter U!
Whether you’re looking for toys that start with U for show and tell, you’re a teacher who likes to have letter-themed toys for your alphabet lessons, or you’re looking for a gift that starts with U for a special reason (maybe you’re shopping for gifts that start with the same letter as your child’s name), this list is a great way to get started!

Toys that Start With U
1. Unicorn Toy
My daughter absolutely adored this unicorn robot. This unicorn helps build STEM skills while providing great entertainment and hours of fun. She sings and dances and prances all on command. She can be programmed to do a certain dance by giving her programmable treats. Also she can navigate through a room all on her own. Let your child enjoy the true magic of a unicorn with this toy.
2. UFO Swing Set

The UFO shaped seat with the raised edges assists with keeping the child inside the swing. This is a perfect activity for lounging or mild exercise. Encourage outdoor play with this UFO swing.

So ugly they are cute. Ugly dolls have recently become popular with the younger generation. The Ugly Dolls movie introduces kids to these quirky and silly dolls that have their own silly town.

I was horrible at geography! I wish I had a floor map when I was a kid. These maps are so educational and fun for the kids. A 51 piece puzzle that shows the entire United States with each state showing the state name and capitol, also some of the main attractions are pictured in this puzzle, such as the Statue of Liberty in New York. This floor map is 2 ft by 3 ft, so your child, or class room will have great visibility of the names and pictures.
9. UTEX Pop Up Tent
This pop up tent is perfect for one or multiple kids. Not only are there two tents, and a tunnel, but one tent is a ball pit! They can let their imaginations run wild! When we were kids, a cardboard box was enough for our amusement, with these pop up tents that are way more durable and easy to assemble, there is no telling where their imagination will take them.

13. Underwater Camera
When I was a kid, I loved taking pictures. My daughter is following in my footsteps with that trait. Let me tell you, though. Our most favorite pictures are taken in the water. My daughter got het first waterproof camera this past summer, and hundreds of pictures were taken in the first day. Water hose fights, waterslide photo shoots, all magical, and all with a smile! I promise, an underwater camera can capture some of the funniest faces that you would never see out of the water. Truly, this is a great investment!
