Part Four in this Series: Toys for 2 Year Olds
It's really fun to watch a two year old play with a toy. All of a sudden, it's like their imagination takes over and a whole new world of exploring opens up.
Be careful when choosing gifts for a two year old, though. Try not to choose toys designed for older kids. Let them explore simpler toys so that they'll still have plenty to grow into.
Two year olds like tactile toys that help them explore their new power of imagination, in particular toys that help them pretend to do adult tasks that they see their parents doing. Kitchen play sets from Green Toys Cutable Fruits and Veggies sets from Plan Toys are perfect examples. Our Wooden Shopping Cart Toy from Hape, and the Haba Play Tent are two other toys that will ignite a two year old's imagination
Two year olds also really like to create art! We love our BEKA Ultimate Easel for this age because it's low enough for a two year old and has the option to add leg extenders as your child grows.
Along with the easel, try some finger paints! We can't imagine a better set than than our Edible Finger Paints by Wee Can Too, which are made from food ingredients and fruit and vegetable dyes.
Finally, two year olds love to make noise! A sturdy drum, shaker, or xylophone is a perfect gift. (And not just for other people's children!)
