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 V!
Whether you’re looking for toys that start with V 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 V 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!

An oldie, but a goodie! This classic chemistry project is a number one hit with most kids and adults. Hands on volcano project.

Also provided in this kit is a bag of pop crystals that make the eruption even more intense. This is a great project for any home or science class.
My kids love to vacuum. I’m not sure why, but they do. Honestly, it’s one of the only ways I can get the youngest to clean his room. I tell him he can use my big vacuum if he picks up all his toys. And in a matter of minutes, like magic, his room is clean! This miniature vacuum is perfect to teach your children how to help clean. It has real suction that can pick up debris, such as little pieces of paper. It has a trash compartment, just like a real vacuum that your child can dump out once clean up time is over.
