The short answer is yes, it (Candida) can be transmitted on toys, especially those that go in the mouth. Treatment of the child with thrush will help, or you might ask that that child stay home until the thrush is gone. Also, frequent boiling of the toys and other things they chew on will sterilize them.

I’ve included more information on thrush and contagion in the link below.
