Your toddler is on a mission to learn, grow and be entertained. Encourage them with these fun skill-building toys
For all the talk about the "terrible threes," this age (and the awesome gear that comes with it) is a blast. Your toddler is ready to learn and explore through play, and toys like toy kitchens, wooden tracks and blocks can help them imagine and grow while having lots of fun.
Their little hands will be busy developing fine motor skills, dexterity and coordination. It's all about giving them the freedom to be creative, whether it's through role-playing as a chef, driving a train through a hallway or "cooking" your green eggs and bread. Here are some things to consider when looking for the perfect toy for your toddler.
Find toys that will grow with your child. Toddlers seem to grow at the speed of light, so toys for all ages (2-5, etc.) will keep growing kids happy (and you don't have to keep buying new toys) .
Encourage creativity and exploration through imagination. Toys like clay and blocks can teach young children how to create new things from scratch and build their imagination by shaping things in their own way.
Foster responsibility and confidence. Your child wants to be just like you. With small kitchens, tool sets and dolls, children will enjoy pretending to be adults and emulating them as they cook, build and play in the house.
