Best Toys For 2 Year Old Boys

Updated on December 15, 2013

Awesome Gift Ideas For A 2 Year Old Boy

Our Son Hayden has just turned 2 and I must admit it wasn't all that easy to find the perfect gift for him. Which brings us to the reason for this page. It's all about finding the best toys for 2 year old boys, so other parents can get ideas without all the headaches.

For our little 2 year old, it was a little difficult finding him something he would love. He's not quite at the age of having much interest in TV or particular toys yet. So we had to narrow it down to the toys that he pays attention to already. Including any toys his 3 year old sister plays with.

So what you will find are the gifts our Son received as well as some other gifts that may be appropriate for your two year old boy. Feel free to comment and suggest gifts of your own in the comments section.

Elmo Gift Ideas - Our First Choice

Boys Elmo Toys Are Number 1.

What is it about Elmo?. Kids just seem to love him. My boy doesn't even watch Sesame Street, yet his favorite bed buddy are his 3 Elmo teddies. Maybe he finds Elmo's voice soothing when the doll sings lullabies to him when he sleeps. Or that they are just so soft and cuddly. Whatever the attraction is...Elmo is a winner!.

The Safe & Fun Game Of Bowling

The friendly bowling option for indoor entertainment. A superb way to get the kids playing 'nicely'. These soft plush bowling pins and monster ball are child friendly. The younger sibling is now safe from being the victim of a hard toy be projected in their direction.

All round family fun and a great alternative to some of the modern technology toys. Back to the basics and a safe and very fun game for little kids. Hundreds of other parents have made similar comments and posted very insightful reviews, proving this to be one of the best presents for your 2 year old Son this year.

2 Year Old's Love To Dance & Sing - Kids DVD's With Lots Of Songs To Groove Too

Only a few weeks before our boy turned 2 did he show any sign that he was interested in TV/DVDs. After his big sister had dominated the TV since he was born, somewhere along the way he picked up a fascination with the Wiggles.

One day he decided...Today's my turn! and he hand selected a Wiggles DVD from his Sisters pile of DVDs and so naturally I put it on. A total winner again. He just loves dancing to the groovy beats.

Wiggles: Big Birthday

This Big Birthday Wiggles DVD was the first DVD my Son fell in love with. He loves dancing along with the other kids in the DVD. Since this DVD, we have bought him several more Wiggles DVDs and they are all hits.

 
Sesame Street: Kids' Favorite Songs

A classic!. Guess who's on the cover?. Elmo of course, so we knew this DVD would be the right choice for his 2nd Birthday.

Tomy Megasketcher - Magnetic Drawing Board
If you're kids don't have a magnetic drawing board by the age of 2, then it's seriously time to get one!.We all had one as a child, and why's that?. Because we love being creative. The shapes also add a new element to the childs artisitic side. Great gift idea.

Learn To Count With Toys

LEGO DUPLO Number Train 10558 (Discontinued by manufacturer)
LEGO DUPLO Number Train 10558 (Discontinued by manufacturer)

It's important to us that some of the gifts were not only for fun. But also had some educational benefit. This cool little train set was perfect for our boy. He loves trains and this is a great way to get him counting those carriages. Plus the cute dog was always going to be a treat.

 

Suitable LEGO For A 2 Year Old - Everyone Loves LEGO

Every child at some stage in their life will encounter Lego and once they do...They become hooked!. Lego is a great gift idea that's been passed down from generation to generation. It teaches children hand eye co-ordination, identify colors, count and releases their creative side.

The only problem with Lego is, especially for the younger kids is that pieces can be rather small. As we all know, small things and young kids simply don't mix. Children like to eat small things as well as stick them in places they don't belong; Ears and nose which can result in a trip to the Doctors or Hospitable.

So to prevent an unwanted trip to the Dr, here's a few of our favorite Lego that's suitable for younger kids, in particular 2 year old boys.

LEGO DUPLO My First Set (5416)
LEGO DUPLO My First Set (5416)

Larger then normal sized Lego pieces with a handy pack away container. Make sure you teach your young ones the importance of tidying up after themselves as young as possible. This set also includes items to help get your child's imagination running wild with flowers, windows and even the household Cat.

 
LEGO DUPLO Creative Cars 10552
LEGO DUPLO Creative Cars 10552

Lego + Cars! It's a dead set winner this combo. Plus the pieces are very big so no worries of our little boy choking on a piece of Lego. This Lego set will keep a child's imagination going for quite some time. Once the car is built...It's time to race.

 

 


VTech - Slide And Talk Smart Phone
By far the best and most affordable replica kids phone on the market. Kids see us playing on our phones all the time, and simply want one too!. It's not really the best financial decision to buy a 2 year old a $500 smart phone. So this is your next best bet.Plus it teaches your child to type, spell, count and learn the ABC. The 4 included friends will entertain your kids and keep it fun. All while leaving your expensive smart phone in the safety of your possession.

Outdoor Activity Centres For 2 Year Old Boys

Our Kids Love Playing Outside

Our 2 kids love playing outdoors, the only problem is..We have no shaded areas in our yard. Coming from a hot part of the world, being out in the middle of the day heat can really damage our kids skin. So it's important to us that our kids are well protected from the sun. Plus any outdoors activities that provide shade options are a really big bonus.

Something like this outdoors sand and water play center is perfect. It combines both fun in the sand play, plus cool and refreshing water time. The shaded umbrella provides excellent protection from the sun. We have both an outdoors kids table, chairs and umbrella set up, plus a separate sand and water play center. This cool Step 2 play center combines them both into one really fun package.

A Fun Sporty Outdoors Gift Idea For The Boys

Outdoor Sports Climber By Step 2.

The All Star Sports Climber by Step 2 is a fantastic outdoors gift idea for a 2 year old boy. It combines 2 all time favorite kids outdoor playing activities. Sports and the classic slippery slide. My Son, like most other toddlers climbs on everything. This climber will encourage our kids to climb on appropriate things and leave those tables, sofas and drawers alone.

The boys can climb over the stone wall and slide down the other side. The attached basketball hoop is an excellent way to teach kids hand eye co-ordination and accuracy. Once they develop catching and throwing basics first. Then it's time to pick up the football and practice passing through the big hole. To develop kicking and foot work the soccer ball and net work great.

I see this outdoors play center being popular for many years after the age of 2. It's not a toy that will get used once then disregarded. When your little toddler has a play date with his mates, the built in score board will encourage a little fun competition. While increasing natural ball skills. A great idea!.
