Gift Ideas for 2 Year Old Toddlers

Updated on January 9, 2014

Best Gift Ideas for Two Year Old Toddlers in 2014

Ah, the magic of being two years old.

If only we grown ups had the energy that a two year old has; we'd get so much accomplished!

Finding gifts for little ones in this age group is not too hard of a challenge since they are awed by many new things.

Here are a few ideas that are sure to please!

Fish Colors Mix N Match Peg Puzzle

Two-Year-Olds Love Puzzles

If you are looking for an appropriate gift for a toddler, take a look at this Fish Colors Mix N Match Peg Puzzle by Melissa & Doug. With 10 different colors of fish, a toddler will be well on her way to learning them quickly.

This wooden peg puzzle features fish of different colors that have interchangeable pieces so they can switch it up for fun. To find the name of each color, simply lift the piece up and see it below. The colors featured are orange, black, pink, blue, red, green, yellow, brown, white and purple. Instead of paint, each piece features a sticker to depict the colors.

A toy like this is great for developing hand-eye coordination, along with fine motor skills and creativity. Some ideas on how to use this toy in more than one way include telling a story about the fish, counting them, playing a guessing game and anything else you can think of.

Educo My Creative Cookery Club

Toddler Ideas for Pretend Play

This Educo My Creative Cookery Club is a very sturdy and fun little toy for any toddler. Kids this age learn by mimicking what others do and they see mom and dad cooking in the kitchen all the time; so naturally they will love pretending to do so as well.

I think the best thing about this toy is that it is made from Baltic birch plywood and hardwood instead of plastic that can leach chemicals. The set comes with an oven with a see through door, a cupboard to store food, a refrigerator, stove, sink and a utensil rack. I love the food that comes with it as well - sliceable veggies, bread, pots, pans, utensils, salt and pepper.

All in all, the set comes with 30 different pieces. There is some assembly required but it doesn't take long at all and is quite straightforward.

You might want to consider treating the wood to seal it since it comes with a chance of getting ruined with crayon, food, etc. It has a small footprint so it will fit into tight spaces and is very sturdy to last a long time.

Hohner 5 Piece Toddler Music Band.

Musical Toy Ideas for Toddlers 2013

Two year olds are noisy, and it isn't often a nice kind of noise with yelling, screaming, shrieking, tuneless songs or crying. Let them make music to your ears with this Hohner 5 Piece Toddler Music Band.

The pieces included are a xylophone, sea drum, and three musical shapes that incorporate bells and beads for different sounds. I love that it comes with its own storage box that has a handle for easier carrying as well.

The pieces are made for little hands to comfortably hold. Another great thing about these instruments are that they are BPA free, lead free, and phythlate free which means your child can be safe while playing them. All the pieces are durable enough to withstand the aggressive play of a toddler.

I was impressed that the toys are in tune as well. Your child will love handing everyone in the family an instrument so you can all play together. But as is common with one so young, don't be surprised if you end up playing all of them in a 1 minute time span!

Fisher-Price Cheer For Me Potty

Potty Training Gift Idea for Toddlers

Two is the magical age where most parents begin potty training. Help their lives be easier with this Fisher-Price Cheer For Me Potty. It makes a child actually want to sit on it and use it! The little one will love having his own toilet to use and getting positive feedback while doing so.


The flush handle clicks when it is pushed down and it comes with its own retractable toilet paper holder. The rewards given for successful use of the potty include five phrases and two sing along songs.

The happy smiling face on the tank will be a fun friend for the little one to have. The bowl is removable for more easier cleaning and it features a splash guard that is good to have for both boys and girls.

I really like that the potty ring can be moved to the regular sized toilet for when they are graduating. It does run on 3 AA batteries which are not included and there is some light assembly required.

This potty is so fun that if you find that the child wants to engage the songs without actually using it, you might want to add some more incentive like treats or stickers. Be aware that if you leave the switch to On, the potty will sometimes sing at random moments and other users have shared that this has happened in the middle of the night; just make sure to turn it off for the night when you're done with training.

Step2 Push Around Buggy

Perfect Ride Toys for Toddlers

For outdoor fun, consider getting this Step2 Push Around Buggy in red. Traditional tricycles can often be hard for a two year old to use.

With my kids, even some that indicated it could be used for ages 2 and up, I found they lacked the length in legs to reach the pedals.This Buggy gets rid of that issue.

Granted, they cannot move it themselves, but if they want to ride around in something fun, other than a stroller, this is the toy to do it in. The seat comes with a seat belt for safety and offers footrests off the ground to keep toes protected.

You steer with the protruding handle while your little one can pretend to drive and even has an ignition key.

There is also a horn featured that most children find fun to push. If you need to take your cell phone and some water bottles with you, there is a small trunk in the front that will hold a few items. I like that the handle comes off for easier storage as well.
