Top Gifts for a 2 Year Old

Updated on September 13, 2014

Gifts for a Two Year Old Girl

Are you looking for a great gift for a 2 year old? This is such a wonderful age, the toddler is just starting to understand the concept of receiving gifts and the delight of a special toy can be seen on their face as they open the gift.

There are so many great toys out there it is some time hard to pick just the right one. This is the age when you want to foster their imagination and give them a toy they can play with for hours.

I have a granddaughter that is almost two and in this lens I will give you some of my top choices for toys for her this Christmas.

Little Tykes Climber - great gift for 2 year old

We gave one of these climbers to our granddaughter in Atlanta for her 1st birthday and now we've sent one to our granddaughter in Kansas City for her 2nd birthday.

Our granddaughters in Atlanta have had many years of fun and play on this climber. When they were very small we would put them on the slide and they would love to go down it. When they were a bit older they would climb on to the top and spin the wheel. As they grew they used the castle climber in many ways...their imaginations always found ways to use the climber in their play. They are now 7 and 5 and still play on the climber. In the summer it is used as a slide into their pool.

This slide is very durable and still looks great after years of play!

Books are Perfect for the 2 Year Old

My granddaughters love to look at books. Here are a few that are great for the 2 year old.

Elmo Loves You! (Sesame Street)

My 2 year old granddaughter loves anything with Elmo. She will look at these books again and again.

There is a whole series of books like this one. My granddaughters particularly liked "If you give a Cat a Cupcake".

A perfect bedtime story.


Fischer Price Nativity Set - nativity set for toddler

I want my granddaughter to always remember the true meaning of Christmas. This Christmas we are giving her a nativity set. I hope that playing with this toy will open the doors to reinforce the story of our Saviors birth to her.

This nativity set is complete with the figures and animals that you see in nativity sets and the set plays the beautiful song "Away in a Manager".

A great gift for a young grandchild.


Fischer Price Farm - gift for toddler

Children love animals and this farm is a great way to encourage their interest in animals and farms. My granddaughters spend hours pretending with all of the animals on the farm. It is also a great way to teach little ones about different farm animals.

Little People Noah's Ark - animals for little people

The Noah's Ark with all the animal pairs is a great gift for the two year old. My granddaughter loves marching all the animals into the ark. This is a great way to teach the Bible story of the great flood and Noah's ark.

Fisher Price First Riding Toy - toddler riding toy

This riding toy would be a great choice for a two year old.

Fischer Price First Doll House - doll house for toddler

A doll house is a great choice for a two year old girl. This doll house is just the perfect size for her to sit an play with for hours.

Fisher-Price My First Dollhouse

My granddaughter played with this one for hours. She loves moving the people and furniture. You just wonder what she is thinking. So cute!

      I am quite flattered to find my ornament here, and also excited to see one of my favorite toys - the fisher price farm. Shhh, don't tell but my kids bought me one about 6 years ago after I saw one and made a comment about it from my childhood. I have since passed it on to a toddler.

      My grandsons are quite a way past the two year old stage, but I remember getting some of these terrific Fisher-Price toys for them (and for my 'kids' when they were small) in years past. Lovely choices here. And your granddaughters are darling!
