2nd Birthday Gifts : Presents For 2 Year Olds

Second birthdays! Two year olds are well aware of what birthdays mean so ideally gifts should be immediately interesting or exciting.

Two year olds are inquisitive. They still like push and pull toys and some can kick a ball. Simple jigsaw puzzles, stackable bricks and toys that fit together keep them amused and develop hand-eye coordination and spatial skills. Cloth or board books they can handle themselves and parents can read to them can help develop literacy and a love of stories. Videos and DVD can keep them amused and give exhausted parents a rest.

If you're not sure of the child's or parent's preferences, play it safe with non-gendered toys.
