Educational toys for a two year old
Two-year-old is an attentive observer of the world around him or her. Every day a toddler becomes more and more independent, constantly improves walking skills, and is more and more eager to run, climb and jump. It is important to play sports to help develop gross and fine motor skills. Obviously, physical development is not all. At this age, children start to think in a new way and their language acquisition helps them understand almost everything adults say. The toddler becomes more communicative, systematically expands his or her vocabulary and starts to build first simple sentences. They are more and more willing to establish contacts with peers and are able to engage in more pretend play. Does your kind have tantrums? It is a normal way to express frustration for kids this age!
A toddler’s daily “work” is play. Caregivers and parents can support childrens’ natural development by choosing appropriate toys and actively accompanying them during various activities. A child learns by observing and memorizing the behavior, gestures and words of others, therefore an efficient memory and exercising attention and concentration are very important for its proper development.
How to actively support toddler’s development through play?
Parents often wonder what toy for a 2-year-old will be a really valuable choice. What do we recommend for a 2-year-old girl and a 2-year-old boy? We strongly suggest sport activities and manual play, away from electronics. This is why our toys are made of safe, certified and natural materials. We like educational blocks, wooden toys and, of course, cardboard ones. This is a great time to try out our first simple puzzles, games and creative books! Our philosophy is simple: we give children and parents space for their own creative play, the way we follow the child and support their natural development. We make sure that our books, games and puzzles have content and form adapted to the age and interests of children. Our original toys are recommended by parents and specialists, psychologists and educators, but most of all children like them.
