Behold the two-year-old: a creature in the wilds of childhood, who is cute, curious, and can’t get enough fun—until suddenly a nap is needed. We’ve gathered our top 20 gift ideas that are not only fun but also new, cool, and perfect for age two. Flip through the album below for toys, books, and stuffies that will captivate toddlers’ burgeoning imaginations as they learn and grow this coming year.
Let’s Count to Ten
We love that Nerdy Baby’s counting pack starts at zero degrees Celsius and ends at pi. But fear not—in between you’ll find children's artist Tiffany Ard's whimsical illustrations of the 1-10 numerals toddlers are mastering. They just happen to be electrons, magnetic poles, and the segmented legs of a bee to tally. Young scientists will learn about the planet’s five major oceans (and parents will discover more about Kreb cycle acids than they ever expected). Counting sheep suddenly sounds pretty dull!
Available at Nerdy Baby, $14.
