Best Toys for 2 Year Olds

Here is a selection of the Best Christmas and Birthday toys for 2 year olds which I put together for people who are shopping for 2 year olds and aren't sure what to buy.

When my kids were little  I knew all the latest toys but after they grew up I quit paying attention to the TV ads for toys. And then, lo and behold my daughter had a daughter so now I have a 3 year old granddaughter! This has meant that I needed to brush up on the latest toys!

Last year she was two at Christmas and I had to scramble to find out what is popular for 2 year olds now. This consisted mostly of asking the grand Princess and her little boy cousin what they thought were the coolest toys and then watching what they actually end up playing with. So here is a list of the top toys and gifts for girls and boys 2 years old, based on that research. Enjoy!

LeapFrog My Own Leaptop
A Top 10 Christmas Toy for 2 Year Olds

I got LeapFrog's My Own Leaptop for my 2 year old granddaughter and she really adores it! She gets it out and plays on it while her Dad works on his laptop. It has different ways for parents to personalize it for their child. Hers says hello to her from her Mom and Dad when she opens it up. Toddlers age 2 and up like her are crazy about the six modes of pretend computer play in My Own Leaptop. It is child proof and user friendly and introduces children to animals, shapes, letters, music, and more. With a Leaptop, you'll give your toddler a fun yet instructive introduction to using computers. This is my granddaughter's favorite toy and she is an Elmo fanatic, so that should tell you something.(We finally found something she likes besides Elmo.) Available in other colors too but Green is gender neutral so you can pass it on to a sibling later!

Legos are just amazing inventions aren't they? Anything they can imagine, they can make out of legos. We had buckets of these genius toys. Legos and Blocks are fantastic toys for children that will last them a lifetime. They are great for sparking imagination too.
