FAQ about toys for 2 year olds

What are toys for 2-year-olds?

Toys for 2-year-olds are especially suitable for this age group of your child. The focus is still on the fun of playing. Nevertheless, there are already toys for 2-year-olds, which can strengthen and promote the skills of your child. This is still done in a playful framework, so that your child is usually not overburdened and can instead fully live out his creativity

How expensive are toys for 2-year-olds?

The price of such a toy can be quite different. However, the cost of a particular toy usually depends on what features the toy has. Take a look at our product recommendations. There you will find great toys between 5 and 20 euros

What material should toys for 2-year-olds be made of?

Toys for 2-year-olds should be as unpainted as possible, because at this age your child explores many objects more closely with his mouth. Natural wood is therefore ideal because it is very robust and your child can use it for many years if used correctly. Nevertheless, you must make sure that it is of high quality. It must not splinter or have sharp edges, otherwise your child may injure himself more seriously. There are also many toys made of plastic. These are good to take with you everywhere, as they are usually very light. However, these toys often break quickly if your child drops them once. They are also not necessarily sustainable compared to wooden toys. If you want to do something good for the environment, a wooden toy is probably the better choice. But of course, the decision is still yours

Which toys are suitable for 2-year-olds?

It is important that the toy does not overwhelm your child. Too loud noises or too many functions mean that your child may not be engaged with the toy in the long term. Therefore, pay attention to how your child behaves while playing. Does he cry a lot or constantly push the toy away? Is he no longer really enthusiastic about anything? These can be signs that your child is not feeling well. Then you should rather look for another toy

Which toys are suitable for boys?

There is no general answer to this question, because every boy develops different interests. As a rule, however, boys like, for example, small cars made of wood, with which they can dash through the apartment. They also like to occupy themselves with simple ball games. Building with LEGO bricks is also usually a popular play option for boys

Which toys are suitable for girls?

Girls like to play with dolls. In the beginning, these do not have to have any special functions. Instead, it is enough for many girls to simply take care of them. Just like boys, girls also like games of skill or simple board games. Read-aloud books are also interesting for children of this age. However, these should not be too long, because the attention span of your child at this age is still very limited. Simple instruments such as rattles or drums can also arouse your child’s interest

What should you consider when buying a toy for 2-year-olds?

The toy must not contain any harmful substances. Therefore, check the manufacturer’s specifications carefully before buying so that your child does not inhale any toxic substances later on. A test seal can provide you with certainty that the toy has been carefully tested beforehand. It must also be possible to exclude the possibility that the toy contains small parts. Otherwise there is a danger of suffocation!

What skills are trained with a toy for 2-year-olds?

Your child can train his motor skills with various toys by reaching for certain shapes and exploring them more closely. Skill and patience are also trained, among other things, with toys that must first be assembled. But language development also improves automatically if you read to your child regularly. When making music, your child also develops his hearing and learns about different sounds

What brands of children’s toys for 2-year-olds are there?

A well-known brand of wooden toys is Haba. Among other things, it also offers special motor skills toys that specifically train your child’s abilities. But also My Toys or Fisher Price have a large selection of toys for 2-year-olds
