Updated on January 1, 2015

Finding The Best Educational Toys for Two Year Olds

Are you looking for some of the best Educational Toys for 2 Year Olds this year? Then you have come to the right place!

Being two years old doesn't always have to equate to rambunctious, unruly little rascals. In fact there are many great milestones that a two years old achieves.

Many of them have to do with their mental and physical development.

It's around this age that they begin to talk more, walk and even run, as well as become more communicative and expressive in their emotions.

If you have a two year old running around your home then you also know how entertaining they can be and how awesome it is to see them go about their days, playing, imagining, exploring, and every now and then, getting into things they shouldn't.

One of the best ways to encourage and nurture the development of a two years old would be with educational toys. These toys have many great benefits and they'll keep your children entertained and occupied for hours on end. Check out some of these educational toys for 2 years old.

Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn: Learning Piggy Bank

You're never too young to start learning about money management and wise investments. This adorable little piggy bank not only keeps your 2 years old's pretend money safe and secure but it also teaches them about colors, counting, animals, and sizes through fun songs, music, and activities.

It includes a pink piggy bank with a press-button nose and 10 colorful coins that you can drop into the slot of the piggy bank.

The only thing this toy is missing is a guide on how to make smart stock investments, but that'll come later. For now counting and pretend money should suffice.

When it comes to learning about shapes, color, and sizes there’s no better way than hands-on activity. This awesome colorful stacking toy features geometric shapes which you can stack onto a peg.

It comes with 25 wooden shapes pieces and a stand with three pegs for stacking. Your child will learn to recognize colors and shapes as well as refine their motor skills.
