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 Y!
Whether you’re looking for toys that start with Y 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 Y 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 Y
Yoda has always been pretty cool, right? Now they have blown us away with the cutest creature in all of fiction. Baby Yoda! I didn’t even care much for Star Wars anymore until they introduced this big eyed, big eared, tiny mouth, green baby in a basket! Anyone, kids and adults, can’t say no to a baby yoda toy. This is the way, it is.
Hopefully your kids are better at yo-yo than I am. I just have never been able to master this simple looking toy. My brother could do all types of tricks and he has even started teaching some to my kids. Similar to card tricks, a yo-yo is something that will always interest me, but I will never understand. Encourage your kids creativity with a yo-yo. See what all tricks they can come up with.
3. Yellow Duck
A yellow duck is so simple, but let me tell you, it is one of the most loved bath and pool toys that kids ever play with. I’m not sure if it’s the bright yellow color that grabs their attention, or if it’s the happy duck face, or the fact that they can squirt water from it, that makes it so appealing. Whatever it is, I’m ok with it. My youngest loved yellow ducks so much, we did his birthday theme with yellow ducks. Blue cake and cupcakes with mini ducks. Super cute, and bath toys to last a lifetime.
4. Yoga Spinner Game
Encourage healthy stretching and relaxation with this fun Yoga Spinner game. Anyone can play. This game comes with 54 cards assorted in 4 different colors. The object of the game is to collect all 4 colors of cards by spinning the wheel and perform corresponding yoga moves. This is a very fun and healthy activity that I think any parent can agree on.
My favorite character in the Mario World will always be Yoshi. Mario’s faithful companion. Now, your child has the opportunity to have Yoshi as their own flying companion. Yoshi is a drone! What? Yes! So in the comfort of your home or backyard, let your child control where Yoshi can fly and pretend to get points for specific items.
6. Yo Gabba Gabba
Yo Gabba Gabba is a child’s tv show that has monster characters that help teach our young ones educational lessons. It always makes it more fun when they can have a hands on friend to play with as they watch these shows. Here we have a 2 pack with Muno the monster and a monster ballz keychain. Surely any Yo Gabba Gabba loving child would enjoy playing with this set.
7. Yeti in my Spaghetti
This fun children’s game is similar to “Don’t Break the Ice” and “Jenga”, a game of strategy. The main goal is to get the spaghetti out of the bowl without making the yeti fall. The beginning is simple, because there are lots of noodles. As the game goes on, less and less noodles are available to grab, making each decision critical. Pick the wrong noodle and you lose.
Teach your kids a real world skill. Something that they can be proud of. Crocheting is something that brings so much satisfaction, not only for the creator, but for those who receive the creations. Some of my favorite gifts were hand made from yarn. This beginners crochet kit shows how to make cute animal buddies, and it is super simple. Your child may find a knack for this skill and make whatever comes to mind. Pillows, blankets, hats, socks, stuffed animals, and so much more.
