Daniel Tiger has been a beloved character in our house ever since the first of my four kids was old enough to watch Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. We are big fans of the catchy (and useful) tunes, realistic stories, and important life lessons taught in the spirit of Mr. Rogers. I have compiled below a list of top-rated Daniel Tiger toys and gifts for the toddlers and preschoolers in your life.

Daniel Tiger Toys
These Daniel Tiger toys will bring the magic of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood to life through imaginative play and games.
“Welcome to Main Street” is a board game based on Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood. Players move their Daniel Tiger character pieces through the neighborhood, collecting gifts as they go. There is some strategy involved for older players, and the game allows children to practice simple counting. Part of the game process involves players giving gifts to one another and saying “thank you,” reinforcing the concepts of collaboration and manners. This Daniel Tiger game is rated for ages 3 and up.
This Daniel Tiger Neighborhood Trolley is a simple battery-free pullback toy. Kids can pull the trolley back on a hard surface and watch as it zooms and dings away. It comes with a Daniel Tiger figure, which can be placed on a peg inside the trolley to ride along. There are three other pegs, as well, if you add other Daniel Tiger figures to your collection.
For more bells and whistles, try the electronic Daniel Tiger trolley. This trolley comes with Mom Tiger and Daniel Tiger figures. It also includes a changeable crosswalk sign, and a little stop sign and crossing guard uniform to dress Daniel in. Press a button to move the trolley forward. In addition, it lights up and plays sounds, songs, and phrases.
Your toddler will love playing make-believe with small Daniel Tiger figures. The sets below include holes in the bottoms so that they can be placed on the pegs inside the trolley toys. These toys also work well in dollhouses or Little People toys your children may already have at home.
- This set of 5, including Daniel Tiger and his neighborhood friends: Miss Elaina, Prince Wednesday, O the Owl, and Katerina Kittycat. These figures have moveable arms and heads.

This unique Daniel Tiger toy is like a karaoke machine, perfect for a music-loving child. The toy plays four Daniel Tiger songs: the theme song, “It’s You I Like,” “My Name is Daniel Tiger,” and the song that plays at the end of each episode. Aside from playing the songs, the toy includes a real working microphone, allows kids to record their own voices, and can be hooked up to a phone or iPod to stream other music.

For the kid who likes cars and things that zoom, this two-pack of Daniel Tiger vehicles is sure to be a hit. The set includes Daniel driving his Tigertastic Car – one of his special toys – and a rocket made from a cardboard box. These are pull-back cars, so no batteries are necessary.
Colorforms are reusable stickers that children can cling to windows or scene boards. Your child can engage in imaginative play, creating scenes or telling stories with Daniel Tiger and his friends. The Daniel Tiger Colorforms travel set includes a double-sided foldout board displaying a stage scene on one side and a playground scene on the other. This is a wonderful toy for travel! I have an entire post on reusable stickers if you would like to explore similar toys for your toddler or preschooler.
With this set, your child can use blocks to build the treehouse that O the Owl and Katerina Kittycat live in. You will also receive three block-fit figures (Daniel Tiger, O the Owl, and Katerina Kittycat), decals to decorate the treehouse, coloring pages, and a pack of crayons.

We’ve been singing this for years: “If you have to go potty, stop and go right away. Flush and wash and be on your way!” This Daniel Tiger toy is a perfect potty training aid. Bring Daniel to his own potty, which plays the “potty song” and makes a real flushing sound. The large Daniel Tiger figure, clad in removable sweater and shoes, makes a wonderful toy on its own. You may want to get a potty-themed Daniel Tiger book to go along with it.

Kids can draw down the curtain at the entrance or roll it up and leave it open. When playtime is over, you can fold it back into the storage bag.
