11 Unicorn Toys & Other Baby Shower Gifts
Even though I’ve had three babies of my own, t’s not often that I specifically write about baby-related stuff. (In fact, one of the few baby-themed posts I have, about taking an infant to Disney World, was written by interviewing other moms.)
But I have such a nice set of unicorn-themed posts (scroll down to the yellow block at the very bottom of this post to see some of them) that I couldn’t resist adding a post about unicorn stuff for babies.
(Not to mention that “shopping” for baby stuff is always so fun!)
I discovered some adorable unicorn toys for babies, and then (toward the end of the post) included some unicorn-themed baby products, like teething toys, washcloth and towel sets, and a great-looking diaper bag for the parents.
Any of these would make great gifts for a unicorn-themed baby shower.
✅ Wooden Stacking Ring Toy with Unicorn Topper
This is a much higher-quality, more visually pleasing, and slightly smaller version of the plastic Fisher Price toy that many of us had as kids.
It helps babies and toddlers develop fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and a sense of order.
The rings, and the unicorn topper, are made with real wood and coated with non-toxic varnish and waterborne paint.
Stuffed Princess & Castle Playset
This is such an adorable gift for a baby girl. It’s safe, soft, and self-contained. I always like how all the pieces have a different sensory element to them.
The pieces include:
- Princess crinkle doll
- Magic mirror
- Squeaker wand
- Unicorn that “neighs” when you squeeze him
They all fit inside a plush pink castle that fastens shut, making it easy to pack up and take it all with you.
Baby “Rocking Horse” Unicorn
This cute ride-on toy is designed with babies in mind and has a 3-side seat with a belt so little ones won’t lose their balance.
Yes, this is a bit of a pricey gift, but many reviewers, like Shelby, said it was worth every penny:
I bought this for my daughter’s first birthday present because of how much she loves to rock. I could barely put it together before she started trying to get on it. I kept having to tell her no and finally had to get Daddy to run interference so I could get it screwed together. She absolutely loves it. More than any of her other toys. I’ve already recommended this to others twice.
✅ Unicorn Snuggle Baby Blanket
When my second daughter was born, one of our neighbors gave us a blanket just like this (except I think it was a bear instead of a unicorn.)
As luck would have it, this particular daughter was (and still is) very tactile, and for years she loved rubbing her thumb and finger back and forth against the satiny-soft edging.
This blanket is 14 by 14 inches. And don’t worry — both the unicorn’s hair and its gold horn can be machine washed and still look great.
Rock and Glow Unicorn Toy
What a clever idea — a toy that a crawling baby can chase!
This interactive toy has 2 settings:
- “Learning Mode” lets children activate different lights, music, and sound.
- “Chase Me Mode” has the unicorn rock and gallop around in different directions.
Amazon reviewer Familyof6 says this is a great toy for a baby girl around 6-12 months old:
We got this for our 6 month old daughter for Christmas and couldn’t be happier with the purchase! When she received it she couldn’t yet crawl, but is crawling now.
I would say this is probably her favorite toy right now. She loves that it lights up, plays music, rocks, and gallops!
I like that you can switch it from hard floor mode to carpet mode, because we have both. I also like that you can play with it stationary (for precrawlers) and galloping for older babies. In gallop mode, it goes QUITE far, and gently turns when it meets an obstacle.
It’s actually pretty smart for a toy- gives my Roomba a run for it’s money in not getting stuck in awkward places, haha. Overall I’m a very big fan, I would highly recommend it.
Plush Unicorn Chair
This adorable pink and teal chair is 14 x 19 x 20 inches and lightweight enough that little girl can carry it from room to room.
Several reviewers said that were surprised at how cute and durable this chair is, especially considering it’s about a fraction of the price of a children’s chair at Pottery Barn.
Amazon reviewer Angelique D. says this is her daughter’s favorite chair:
We were looking to purchase a chair for our daughter to sit in while reading her books. She currently has a fixation on all things unicorns. This chair has checked both of these boxes. She uses the chair multiple times throughout the day to read her multiple books.
The chair is made of a plush material that is soft and washes well. I recommend cutting off the tags so as to not be something kids see as a toy. Our daughter is weighing 25 lbs. and is 32 inches tall. There is plenty of room for her to continue to grow into this chair.
✅ Unicorn Baby Products
While baby toys are great, babies need other things too. And just because they’re “practical” doesn’t mean they have to be any less adorable.
Here are some unicorn-themed baby products that make great gifts for the new parents.
Ella the Unicorn Soothing Sound Machine
If you’ve ever had a baby, you know there are time when you would give your life savings in exchange for something that would magically make the baby stop crying and go to sleep.
Fortunately, Ella the Unicorn can help your little one sleep well without you having to forego your baby’s college education.
Not only that, but babies will enjoy soft Ella and her soothing sounds for years after they’ve stopped being babies.
You can choose which soothing sound you want Ella to play:
- Ocean waves
- Wale song
- 4 different lullabies
You can choose an automatic shut-off time of either 23 or 45 minutes so that Ella doesn’t drain your batteries or need you to constantly go in and out of your baby’s room to shut it off. There’s also an adjustable volume control, so you don’t have to worry about the sounds being either too loud or too soft.
Ella has a velcro tab behind her head that makes it easy to attach her to a crib rail, car seat, or stroller.
One big plus is that the sound box is easily removable, so you can just pop it out and toss Ella into the washing machine whenever she needs a bath.
✅ Large Unicorn Backpack Diaper Bag
I made many mistakes when my kids were babies, but one that I’ll admit here is: I never got myself a decent diaper bag. I just used the little thing they gave you for free at the hospital.
Yeah, I can’t believe it either.
Do yourself a favor and get yourself a real diaper bag. One that you really like and that is kinda cool. Or, if you’re friend or relative is having a baby, get them a really cool diaper bag that they’ll love.
This bag looks great, can be used as either a backpack or a handbag, is waterproof, is durable, and holds a ton of stuff.
I measures 11 by 9 by 16 inches and has a large main compartment plus 15 (!) separate storage pockets. (Here are some photos to show you where all the pockets are located.)
The front pocket is insulated and holds three bottles.
✅ 8-pack Short Sleeve Unicorn Onesies
What could be cuter than a little baby in a onesie that says “Talk to the horn” or “I spit up rainbows”?
This is an 8-pack of unicorn-themed onesies, sized 0-3 months. If the new parents are unicorn fans and/or going with a unicorn theme, I guarantee these will be a huge hit.
Unicorn Teether for Toddler & Baby
There was a time when I feel like I owned every teething toy known to man. Rubber ones. Bumpy ones. Ones that you put in the freezer. Ones that had little stuffed animals attached to them.
But we never had one as beautiful as this unicorn teether!
This teether is made of 100% pure natural and measures approximately 5 x 2 x 6 inches.
Reviewers liked how this teether is easy for babies and toddlers to hang on to. Also, it squeaks, is durable, and is easy to clean.
Baby Hooded Towel with Five Washcloths
You can never go wrong getting a basic towel and washcloth set as a newborn baby gift. I guarantee they will get used!
This hooded towel measures 30 by 30 inches, while each washcloth is 9 by 9 inches.
