Toddlers can be tough to buy for. They aren't babies anymore, but they are not quite ready for some of the 3 years + toys and the small parts they come with. But there are definitely some toys that cater to their new independence, and their desire to explore their environment and build on language and social skills.
Most of you will be familiar with Playmobil, but did you know that they make a line specifically geared to toddlers called Playmobil 1-2-3? The pieces are solid and large enough to not pose a choking danger. These sets are a great introduction to the wonderful imaginative world of Playmobil.
Hape has a great line of musical toys that allow your toddler to express their creativity and put on a show for friends and family.
Green toys have the 1 year + crowd covered with their durable line of products made in the USA from recycled milk jugs! There is a wide range of vehicles available from planes to fire trucks as well as dish sets and tea sets.
Most toddlers could spend hours in a warm bath playing in the water. Our best selling bath toy the Yookidoo Spin 'N' Sort Spout Pro gives them the freedom to control their own flow of water and explore the spinning gears. Be sure to check out the rest of our bath toy collection! They are all designed to drain and dry thoroughly to avoid the dreaded black mold build up.
Doll toys bring out the little nurturer in all toddlers and can help develop language and social skills through play. Baby Stella is a great choice for a first doll. Or if you prefer a more realistic baby, the Corolle dolls bring their life like appearance and that delicious baby scent.
Toddlers can't resist a cause and effect reaction and there is nothing more satisfying than watching the discs roll down the corkscrew pole of the Fat Brain Toys SpinAgain. Toddlers can try to stack the discs in order by size, learn colours, and master their hand/eye coordination.
Toddlers have so much wonder and curiousity to explore their world and these toys will help them do just that!
