Best Toys for Toddlers
Play is essential for learning! So what toys are best for your toddler’s playtime?
Toys that imitate real life – kitchen/food play set, doll houses, and animal farm sets
Push and pull toys – carts, wagons, and toy lawn mowers
Balls – made from soft or lightweight rubber, medium to large sized (golf ball size is still too small)
Books – board books, books with lots of pictures, or books with fun features like scratch-and-sniff, pop-ups, and sounds
Problem-solving toys – stacking toys, magnetic tile toys, locking plastic blocks and simple puzzles
Art – Putty, washable markers and paints, crayons, pipe cleaners
Sensory and motor – water table, sand table, bubbles
Don’t forget to ensure toys are safe! Avoid small parts and sharp edges.
