A two-year-old’s birthday is such an exciting time. They’re at an age where they’ve grown leaps and bounds in terms of development, so they’re able to play with lots more toys.
However, it can still be tricky to buy for a two-year-old – they don’t have enough motor coordination for complicated games, and there are still a lot of safety considerations at this age too. Toys that encourage role-play, develop motor skills, and encourage imagination are great gifts for children turning two.
We’ve done the hard work for you and found the best gifts that are fun, but also help develop those all-important skills without them even realizing it. With our recommendations, the two-year-old girl in your life is going to have the best birthday ever.
