Not every little girl is the same. In fact, they’re all so unique, making buying their birthday gifts a challenge. Here are a few factors to consider when buying gifts for a 2-year-old girl.
Consider the age. Age is the first factor to consider when buying a gift for a 2-year-old toddler. Check the packaging to ensure that it’s ideal and safe for a toddler. It shouldn’t contain choking hazards and other toxic pieces that might compromise your child’s health.
Does it encourage creativity? Don’t just get a toy that does everything for the child. It should encourage creative and imaginative thinking. For example, toys that feature building blocks and shape sorters are ideal for toddlers.
A toy that can be used in multiple ways. Toddlers learn through exploration and will benefit from something they can put into multiple uses. Get your girl something she can build and rebuild into different items, dress, and undress, e.t.c.
A toy that your child will grow with. Consider getting a durable toy that your baby will use for several years, if possible. The toy should have a wide age bracket to accommodate different stages of growth.
Give your child an opportunity to play with ‘real’ stuff. Your child is eager to implement whatever adults do into her daily life. As such, you can get her ‘real’ stuff like a kitchen, a makeup kit, cellphone, dress-up toys, musical instruments, and a washing machine etc.
Get toys that encourage learning. Toys that make funny phrases, melodies and spell out words, colors, and numbers are best suited for preschoolers in their early years of learning.
Gifts that promote physical activity. Get gifts that encourage a toddler to combine sitting, standing, running, and other physical activities. These include bikes, tricycles, slides, balls e.t.c.
Getting the perfect gift for a 2-year-old toddler can be harder than you think. However, we hope our list gives you an idea of what to give your little princess.
Remember, sharing is caring! So, share this list with your family and friends, and feel free to comment with other gifts you think are perfect for a 2-year-old girl.
