The Gift Guide: Full of Gift Ideas for Two Year Old Children
Present Ideas for the Two Year Old who loves to Learn
If you have a child who loves books and enjoys story time, you need to get them a Personalized Book. Caroline’s favorite personalized book is one we received from MyBook Heroes, about learning to be a leader. If you want to use this code OSM10 you can get 10% off your order!
These matching games are fun ways for kids to learn to match pieces together. This specific one is for colors and shapes, but, we have ones for animals and other things to match together.
These have proven to be a great way to pass the time and we like taking a handful to a restaurant to play with while we wait for the food. It’s better than the iPad and she enjoys trying to match them together.
These puzzles pieces are of decent size for a two year old to use and try to handle. It’s a great way for them to work on their fine motor skills, putting the pieces together.
This is one of our daughters current favorite toys. It talks to her and she loves playing pretend picnic.
With this toy, she can learn about colors, shapes and how to have proper manners.
Learning with flash cards is an idea that we have gotten really excited and into for Caroline this year. Your child may not be interested in these until they’re closer to three years of age, just keep that in mind.
But, our little girl has started to show interest in her letters and numbers, so we wanted to continue her enthusiasm with the use of flash cards.
LeapFrog Learning Friends 100 Words Book
This is an adorable interactive colorful book that as your toddler touches the pages, it reads the toddler appropriate words back to them. You can even work with them in two languages, both English and Spanish, teaching your little one to become bilingual.
Gift Ideas for the Two Year Old Little Builder
These are magnetic building cubes that are great for little ones with an extensive imagination. They’re rated for ages 3 and up. Obviously, with the small parts, you need to keep an eye on your little on and make sure they don’t try to eat them.
This provides endless amounts of fun and creation.
These Mega Bloks are like large Lego sets. These are easier for little ones to get their hands on and to build with while they build their motor skills and increase their imagination.
Present Ideas for the Thrill Seeking Two Year Old
Up and Down Coaster
My brother had this little Up & Down Step 2 coaster FOREVER! It was always a hit for the kids in our family. It’s an adorable coaster car that rides down the hilly track. Get ready to video the biggest smiles on your kids faces!
Mini Battery Powered Quad
If you have a little one who really loves to go-go-go, they’ll love a Mini Quad. Don’t forget to get them a helmet!
What kid doesn’t love to bounce on a trampoline? With this adorable low to the ground trampoline, your child can burn through some energy safely and have a blast!
Indoor Imaginary Play Inspired Gift Ideas
Fort / Tent
These play tents and forts come in all sorts of shapes, sizes and colors! Recently, an aunt of mine got Caroline a little Princess Tent, similar to this one that she has been really fond of lately. She can take her stuffed animals, puzzles or whatever she wants in there and feels like she has her “own” space.
This pretend play kitchen is very similar to the one that we have for our daughter. She has spent countless hours there cooking up her new recipes. The more doors and cubbies the thing has, the better. She loves pulling out all of the pretend kitchenware that I just put away! Tons and tons of fun to be had with a play kitchen for boys and girls!
Present Ideas for the Outdoor loving Two Year Old
Sidewalk chalk has been a go to gift for all the kids in our life. It’s easy, it’s fun and who doesn’t love drawing and creating with chalk?!
Growing up, my neighbor had a HUGE patio in their backyard. It had 6 large squares. We would decide what room of the house each square was going to be and we would spend hours drawing out our pretend house and playing in the house!
It always had our minds doing creative and fun things and kept us busy outside – not stuck behind the T.V. or other electronics.
Do we really need to explain the basketball set? It could possibly be used indoors as well!
I don’t think this T-Ball set needs explaining either?!
Outdoor Play House
This is a never ending hours and hours of fun! I had my play house outside for YEARS and YEARS–until I was too big to even stand in there anymore. I still wanted to play in it.
Again, another childhood favorite of mine and now I love seeing my daughter get excited to play with her cozy coup!
I hope these ideas help inspire you to find the perfect gift idea for two year olds in your life. I had a great time putting this together and could list SO many more things. Two years old is a fun age to buy for!
