9 Awesome Toys that Start with Z!

If you are looking for some awesome toys that start with the letter Z, you have come to the right place.

Letter Z toys are some of the hardest ones to think of.

This is a Montessori website, so I always try to focus on toy recommendations that encourage a child's development.

You'll find a lack of cartoon character toys on my list, however, my recommendations don't shy away from imaginative play options or even stuffed toys.

In any case, I was able to come up with 9 great letter Z toy options to choose from.

These toys are great for sound games that help with letter learning or if your child is asked to bring a letter Z toy to school for show-and-tell.

Toys that start with Z

Schleich zebra miniature

Schleich makes the best miniature animal figurines. The detail is always impeccable and there is a focus on true-to-life accuracy.

Zoo habitat toy

Your child can use this zoo habitat toy for imaginative play or show-and-tell. It's small enough for kids to carry it to school with them and show their class.

Zebra shark stuffed animal

Ok, so we may have cheated a little on this list and reused the word zebra. (This was a hard list!)

If you've got an ocean-loving little one, though, this zebra shark stuffy is the one to choose!

Zipper frame

If you are familiar with Montessori Practical Life works, you may have seen frames like this that focus on various life skills.

Zeppelin model

A zeppelin model is the perfect letter Z toy that caregivers and parents can enjoy along with their children.

Zen garden

So, this may not qualify as a toy for many people. However, it is an item that is perfect for kids who have a quiet, calming area of their own.


If the structures in your backyard are good for it, a zipline is a great outdoor gross motor toy that just happens to start with the letter Z.

Zookeeper figuring

If you are looking for a small letter Z toy, something that can be carried easily to school for show-and-tell, a zookeeper figurine is a great choice.

Zucchini stuffed toy

What's more fun than a stuffed vegetable toy that starts with the letter Z?

There you have it – 9 awesome toys that start with Z!

This was no easy list to put together, but I'm good for tough tasks.
