These are my top 10 toddler gift ideas for a 2 year old from an experienced Mom of a recently turned 3 year old. My 3 year old boy has been playing independently with these simple, well-designed toys over the past year. The 2 and 4 year old “girls next door” love them too!
All of these toddler gift ideas encourage independence and independent play for your toddler. Independent play means more free time for parents – right?! These gifts are also very simple and well designed, which is perfect for a minimalist home and keeping your kid’s play area easy to clean up.
Hope this list saves you some time with holiday shopping and gains you even more time after the holidays!
