How to pick toys for 2-year-old boys and girls.
Choosing the best toys for 2- to 4-year-olds can be harder than it looks. Best Buy offers a wide assortment of easily searchable building sets and blocks, educational toys, figurines, games, puzzles and more. When choosing toys for 2-year-old girls and boys, consider toys that encourage spontaneity and creativity, rather than toys that limit the child's input.
At this age, and at this stage of development, stuffed animals are often a great choice for a gift. Kids love them and it’s common for stuffed toys to become lifelong “friends” that evoke positive memories for years to come. A good method is to try to think like the child you’re buying for. Or, you might want to get a plush toy that matches with a character in a favorite children’s book or movie. If that doesn’t lead you to a confident choice, get the softest, furriest, fluffiest one you can find. Learning toys also make good gifts at this age since they not only provide hours of fun, they also help develop a child's creativity and problem-solving ability.
