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 W!
Whether you’re looking for toys that start with W 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 W 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 W
Babies and toddlers absorb so much knowledge just from day to day activities. This walker is a sit to stand, so even before your child can walk, it provides simple learning. This walker teaches colors, numbers, music, and other easy press to play commands. Your child will enjoy the fun melodies that come from this walker.
2. Wiggly Glow Worm
All children deserve to have a night time comfort buddy. A glow worm is the perfect friend. They are soft and small enough to fit comfortably wrapped up in your tiny child’s arms. This toy has an option to glow at night to help ease the fear of being alone in darkness. There are also three modes for this toy so sing comforting lullabies. You can choose the ten minute option, the short play, or glow only. Surely any child would be happy to have this toy.
3. Water Toy Sink
Do you loathe doing dishes? I know I do. You would be surprised at how much jpy a child gets from having their own working pretend sink. I purchased one for my kids, and both the boys and girls couldn’t find enough toy dishes to wash! This toy is super cute. It comes with an assortment of dishes to wash and food to pretend to cook. Fill up the bottom and turn the spigot and watch the water flow. Hours of fun! And a plus side, it teaches them a much needed skill for when they get older, to help with chores!
4. Wooden Blocks
A classic and much loved educational toy, is the wooden blocks. These blocks last a very long time and are used in so many different ways. These blocks help with learning the alphabet. They also have numbers and animals on the other sides. Different colors on the blocks that your child can learn. Once they master the alphabet, these blocks can be used to help spell simple words! And even if they aren’t wanting to have a school lesson, these blocks are great for stacking and building small toy structures. Years of fun will come from this set of wooden blocks.
5. Walkie Talkie
Do you worry about your children when they are out of your sight? If you are anything like me, as soon as I lose visibility, I am on edge. Let me tell you a great solution, walkie talkies. These things are way cheaper than cell phones, they have a range of up to three miles, and this is a four pack, so the kids and a friend can use them for play time and you can hold on to one just in case you need to tell them to get in the house right now. These come with rechargeable batteries so no worry about needing to buy batteries every 2 weeks.
6. Wet and Dry Slide
Let me tell you about an investment that you will not regret. Buy your kids an inflatable bounce house water slide. This awesome addition to your house will be hours and hours of fun and laughs and memories that will last a lifetime. When it is hot, you can hook the water to it for them to slide down a nice cool slide. When it’s a little cooker, they can still play on it. The ball pit and bounce house alone are great, but with the two slides, there is endless fun with this toy. We have one, and I promise, my kids ask me every single day to blow up the bounce house. Every day.
7. Watch Ya Mouth Game
Get ready to laugh until your ribs hurt! Spittle and giggle! Watch Ya Mouth is a game for the older kids and adults where you place a plastic guard in your mouth and try to say what the card deems you to say and for the rest of the group to guess what you are trying to say. This game is hilarious and sure to make everyone get out of their comfort zone and be all smiles through the whole game.
Give your child the feeling of magic with this LED light up wand. Multi-colored wand with a base that lets out a kaleidoscope of colors and the star that matches the lights at the end. This want is sure to make any prince or princess feel special as they can pretend to cast spells and turn bad people into toads.
It’s a boat, it’s a plane, it’s a WAGON!!! A wagon through a child’s eyes can be anything!! There is something magical about this box on wheels that children go crazy for. We have had our wagon for 6 years and our kids still go crazy for it. It is on the verge of needing a new tire after six years, but I promise you, this is a toy that every kid deserves. It may be used one day to gather all the toys out the yard, and the next day, it may be their magical school bus. The possibilities are endless.
10. Water Gun
What is just as fun as nerf guns? Water guns! When it is hot outside, send the kids out with a kiddie pool filled with water so they can reload as much as they want. No worries about anyone getting hurt with the water, like you would worry with the nerf bullets. If you are concerned about their eyes, give them a pair of goggles. The kids go wild for a water war. Let them pick teams, or go solo. Either way, a water gun fight is a great way for kids to enjoy the summer weather and get them away from screen time.
11. Work Bench
Encourage early building skills with this childs workbench. This set is even more awesome because it is designed for your child to help build the work station. The set has a drill, wrench, screwdriver, bolts and more. Once they build their workstation you can help them learn all the functions of each tool. This is an awesome toy to help build fine motor skills and expand a child’s vocabulary.
12. Walking Pet
This walking, dancing and singing pup is a great first pet for any kid. It is a fun companion without all the responsibility of feeding, bathing and taking it outside to go potty. This toy pet will, however, encourage compassion for others and introduce the child to a fun time with pets. This toy has over 50 sounds and reactions that will be sure to keep the children entertained.
13. Writing Tablet
A great way for a child to learn is by doing hands-on activities. This two pack reusable drawing tablet is a perfect way to teach your child, or students how to properly write or draw. Demonstrate with your tablet and have them copy you. This activity will also help improve their grasping skills while learning to hold the pen. If they make a mistake, no worries. One simple press of a button and the screen goes back blank. My children all have used these tablets and even after they learned to write and draw, they still play around with these. Not expensive, and a great tool to keep around.
