#6 Musical Instruments

Is your 2 year old into music? Does she like to sing, dance, and play musical instruments? Toddlers enjoy instruments they can shake and bang - so bells, xylophones, and drums are all good toys for introducing them to music and keeping them entertained. To learn more about the benefits of music in early childhood development, be sure to check out this article: Introducing Toddlers to Music

2 year old toddlers are ready to be introduced to some easy educational games to help them learn letters, numbers, colors, and matching. Learning toys that help toddlers expand early vocabulary, introduce them to early reading, teach toddlers about cause and effect, and help them build fine motor skills make the best toys for 2 year old girls.

#9 Toys for 2 year old girls who like to help

2 year olds are eager to help and ready to take on just about any household chore. The only problem is that you may not be ready to let her dig in your garden, vacuum the house, or mow the lawn. The good news is that she is happy simply playing pretend with a toy garden cart, a vacuum cleaner, a push mower, or maybe doing some pretend grocery shopping?

Little Tikes Shopping Cart - Pink
Little Tikes Shopping Cart - Pink

It's not a secret, girls love to shop! If you have ever been to a Children's Museum, you may have noticed that grocery store section is one of the most popular places for girls (and some boys). It takes them minutes to fill a grocery cart with fruit, veggies, and other play food. Once they check out at the pretend cash register, they are usually ready for a second round :) A grocery cart and some play food from Melissa & Doug make a perfect gift combo.

 

#10 Gift ideas for little artists

Coloring, drawing and doodling are some of the few activities that can keep a toddler's attention for more than 10-15 minutes. Little artists are fascinated with their ability to create artwork and use every opportunity to express imagination, using paper and crayons and paint. Sometimes they take their talents a little further and take on home décor projects such as decorating bedroom walls :)

#11 Ride on Toys for two year olds

Little kids love spending time outdoors - so much to do, so much to explore. They can spend the entire day outdoors digging in a sandbox, riding a bike or a scooter, and searching for treasures. Ride-on gifts, such as trikes, bikes, scooters, and wagons make the best gifts for 2 year old girls. And for the cold or rainy day, spring horse is a great way to wear off the extra energy indoors.

#12 One of the most entertaining toys ever! - Best Gifts for 2 year old girls Spotlight

Gymnic Rody Horse Gymnastics Equipment, Pink
Gymnic Rody Horse Gymnastics Equipment, Pink

Great toy for learning balance and coordination while "having a great bouncing time!" Be sure to read Amazon Customer Reviews by clicking on the link above: "The best toys we've bought so far," "good for development and fun too," and more...

 

#13 Building sets for 2 year olds

Do you remember playing with legos when you were little? I do! I used to build towers, castles and forts, people and animals, cars and trucks, and anything else I could come up with. I had a few sets, and I would use just about every block for each one of my projects. Lego sets are pricey, so it's good to start building a Lego block collection at an early age.

LEGO DUPLO My First Zoo 6136
LEGO DUPLO My First Zoo 6136

This is a great starter LEGO set for toddlers. The colorful blocks can be arranged in so many ways, and the Zoo animals are absolutely adorable. A great construction set that will get plenty of use in preschool years. Little girls will not only love building Zoo for their animals but are sure to come up with some great pretend play scenarios, once the construction is complete.

 

#14 Toddler furniture and room décor

Toddler furniture and room décor make a great addition to a toddlers room. Little ones do have a thing for furniture just their size. Rocking chair for rocking fun, a chair desk for art and craft time, a dining table and chair set for craft or snack time are just a few of the child sized furniture pieces a toddler would love and get a lot of use out of.

Marshmallow - Flip Open Sofa - Disney Princess Theme
Marshmallow - Flip Open Sofa - Disney Princess Theme

This flip open sofa is a perfect gift for a 2 year old girl. It's the cutest addition to a princess themed room and little girls love to sit and play on it, climb on it, and flip it open to lounge on it or even take a nap. Light enough for a 2 year old to move around, and the removable washable cover makes it easy to clean.

 

#15 Outdoor Playsets

If an outdoor play set is in your budget, it is one of the best gifts for a toddler. Play houses, kids roller coasters, rockers, and swing sets are so much fun!

Step2  Neighborhood Fun Center

Not only does this outdoor play set encourage your little one to spend more time outside (making outdoor time an important part of his or her daily routine), but it also helps toddlers improve fine and gross motor skills, develop creativity and imagination, and attracts friends wanting to join in the fun.
