Sullen, sulky teenagers aren’t the only ones who need headphones these days. Whether it’s so you don’t have to listen to that one song your toddler is obsessively listening to over and over, or to tune out the chimes and melodies during daily screen time, investing in a pair of headphones for your toddler is probably a good idea.

From waterproof, Bluetooth, stylish to just plain adorable, we’ve rounded up some of the best headphones for toddlers.
