Looking for something to occupy your busy-body, overly fussy toddler? If you’ve already tried ALL the things, we have a little secret: toddler headphones. Whether you opt for screen time or stick to mostly music, these bad boys give your sweet, but high-maintenance kiddo, their own little world of volume-controlled sound and distraction from minutes to hours. Perfect for car rides, plane travel, or just some at-home chill time. We’ve got all kinds of options here, too: magical, glowing unicorns, travel-friendly finds, and even headphones themed around their favorite Disney characters (oh hey, Elsa!).
