Lovevery Amazon Alternatives for Every Play Kit

Lovevery Amazon Alternatives

I’m a massive fan of the Lovevery play kits, designed for 0 months through 5 years old.

They’re high-quality toys backed by research to ensure your little ones reach their developmental milestones.

We have amassed every play kit (for ages 0-5) over the years, and I have such treasured memories with these toys!

That said, there’s no denying the kits feel like they’re on the pricey side!

They range from $80-$120 per kit, and not everyone can justify that price.

I started a mission to find Amazon alternatives to all Lovevery toys found in the famous play kits.

I completed that mission until Lovevery came out with more play kits for ages 4-5 in June 2023, but not to worry – I’m getting those posts up very soon!

I’m also constantly updating this series as some of my Amazon finds go out of stock are become unavailable.

It’s a constant game of whack-a-mole, but I’m doing my best to keep up!

Why I’m Doing This Series

If I’m such a massive fan of Lovevery, why the heck did I start an Amazon alternatives series?

It sounds counterintuitive, but ultimately, I have two goals with these Amazon alternatives articles:

  1. See if the Lovevery products are overpriced or are actually worth it
  2. Provide alternatives for families who love the concept of the play kits but can’t afford or justify the price of the entire thing

I hope this helps your family create lasting memories and support developmental milestones along the way.
