I love toys that talk to and teach our children! We all know children will hold little conversations with themselves even before they actually learn to talk, and they respond perfectly to toys that talk to them.
I have selected some of the best talking toys available. Some of them are great learning toys, teaching language, manners, greetings and more, while others will talk back at you! There are toys to cuddle and toys to move and all of them with their own special ingredient that will entertain your little one for hours.
Scroll through to pick out the talking or singing toys that will appeal to your child. There are many to choose from, and I’ve included a range of prices too, so there should be something here to suit every budget.

Say “please!” This cute pretend tea set is more than just a bunch of pretty faces. There are a total of 3 play modes that include music and imagination and learning. Your little one can play safely with this set, indulge her imagination and learn numbers and shapes, manners and greetings.
I’m a little teapot, so tip me up and…. hear something funny. Suitable for children from around 6 months to 3 years old. The set consists of a teapot and 2 cups, a cookie tray and 3 chewable cookies which is totally awesome for teething babies who want to put everything in their mouth.
Talk and Learn Baby Toys
Teach your child numbers and the alphabet the fun way
Learning is fun with talking toys! These toys are designed to help your little ones with their first words and numbers. All children love puppies so the design on the Leapfrog LapPup is perfect, especially for children who want a dog, but can’t have real pets just yet. The puppy is available in purple or green. The Leapfrog LapPup is recommended for ages starting at 6 months.
The school bus will appeal to the child with older siblings who ride the bus to school. Toddlers still at home always want to join their older siblings on the school bus. This is a way for them to have their own school bus while they are learning at the same time. The Chicco school bus is recommended for children 18 months and up.
Fisher Price Zoo Talkers
These little critters for little people – they will tell you their names and the sounds they make. A great and innovative way to learn all about the animals. There are so many to choose from, and they’re inexpensive enough that you can collect them all and manage your own zoo. No need to wait for the weather to be just right to enjoy zoo animals.
The Fisher Price Zoo Talker animals are recommended for 18 months and up. Plus, there are additional animals available that are not shown below that could also be added to a child’s zoo collection.

Thomas the Train Talking Toys for Preschoolers
Here comes…. Victor! The little yellow engine will run on any track along the floor and, as he is busying carrying all that cargo, he will entertain with sounds and language. Let him run to hear all he has to say, then press on his engine for even more.
Thomas and friends talking trains run on Track Master track sets and work with batteries. Included in the box you’ll find Victor, his cargo car and crates. All you need to add are the batteries, the child and the imagination.
Talking Thomas the Train and His Friends
One of my own son’s favorite toys was Thomas the Tank Engine and all of his friends. Of course, who doesn’t love Thomas and his friends? Each one of these talking trains has his own personality that is sure to delight any child.
This is another set of toys that could be built into a collection over time by giving a new “friend” for each special occasion.
These talking Thomas and Friends are recommended for children 36 months and up.
Talking Action Figures and Figurines
Toy Story is a well loved favorite (among kids and adults) and Buzz Lightyear is instantly recognizable. This interactive figure is everything you could wish for. The helmet retracts, the wings, wing housing and wrist indicator all light up to show they’re in working order, and there is a button to take the wings off. Add that to great sound effects and you have a winner.
All you need to do to get Buzz to talk is to press a button. There are 17 different sounds and phrases stored for your child’s pleasure. He will love hearing some of Buzz’s favorite phrases, with “stand back” and “no back talk” being just two of them.
This is definitely one way to get a child talking.
