Gifts for 2-year-olds: inspire boys and girls aged 2 and older
2-year-olds like to be on the move and learn new things every day. Gifts that stimulate creativity and promote their skills are ideal for this age group. For example, many 2-year-olds love to build things on their own. Building blocks that allow children to be creative are great for this. Making music is another way for children to express themselves. Beginner musical instruments (for example, a xylophone) allow 2-year-olds the opportunity to learn different sounds and tones.
A colouring book trains children's imagination and concentration. In the beginning, colouring pictures can be helpful to teach them how to colour more accurately and train their fine motor skills. In general, picture books are very valuable from an educational point of view, as children can train their powers of observation and imagination.
Puzzles are popular among children's toys. A suitable jigsaw puzzle would be great for children older than 2. Children get a feeling for different sizes and strengthen their ability to concentrate as they find the correct places for the puzzle pieces.
To encourage body movements, a running bike works well by gradually teaching balance while giving them some freedom to travel longer distances.
