Best Battery Free Toys For Toddlers

When I became a mother, I swore to myself that I would limit screen time and toys with batteries. A year later and we own two seasons of Bubble Guppies and several toys that require multiple batteries.
With baby number two on the way, I have renewed my effort to limit screen time and battery operated  toys. 

Here is a roundup of the best battery free toys for toddlers.

My little one loves to play with all of these toys. At 15 months, he hasn't quite gotten the concept of the puzzle but he loves playing with the pieces.  The drum set is actually my favorite toy. I think the bugs as instruments is way cute. We use the squeeze blocks to practice stacking and fine motor skills. His favorite toy is the Wooden Animal Nesting Block Set. He plays with it everyday.

I'll continue to look for more battery free toys as my oldest child ages. I hope these toys paired with limited screen time will lead to my children being active and engaged.  How do you feel about limiting screen time? Are there any great options that I didn't put on my list? I'd love to hear from you.
