The Ultimate Kids Gift Ideas For 2020 - Best Gifts for a 2 Year Old

 

Have fun with your little toddler with our range of beautiful toys, books and stationery for 2 year olds. There are lots of things going on in a 2 year olds life. Major changes in their routines, dreams and nightmares, moving out of cots and just general awareness of the world around them.  They are just trying to make sense of it and do their own thing.

Building, creating and drawing and pretend play start this age and grow in significance as they get older.  Dolls and special toys may start to have a really big significance for them as they provide a familiar and safe space for them.  But physical play is where their heart lies.

Key areas of development are: Language Development, Sensory Exploration, Cognitive Awareness, Social & Emotional

Remember that play is a really important part of your child’s life and builds the foundation for not only their physical development but also emotional and social development.  Independent play time is really valuable and important to build into your child’s day.  And it's important for you too!
