Two year olds are curious bundles of energy, stubbornness and gorgeousness all rolled into one. They are hard work – at least my tornadoes were at that age! If you’re stuck with what to buy a toddler tornado this Christmas, here’s a bumper selection of my favourite fun and practical two year old gift ideas.
Featuring all the farm animals that kids love, this 53 piece EverEarth Organic Farm block set will encourage hours of imaginative fun.
Specially designed for two to four year olds, I’m a big fan of the Micador early stART range. Perfect for little hands, the range includes great products like the easy grip Egg Chalk, Woody Crayons, Bubblegum Brushes and Washable Paint Discs. And don’t forget an art smock!
Duplo is a fantastic gift for two year olds. There’s lots of sets to choose from including the new Fun Family Fair, Number Train and Piston Cup set. Then there’s the never-fail classic All-in-One Box of Fun which will keep little ones busy for years!
Have you seen the Kinderfeets Kinderboard? You can rock it. Balance on it. Push it. Spin it. Flip it and slide. Sit on it or use it like a foot stool. Dutch children have grown up with these boards for generations.
As a two year old, “dippy eggs” was my favourite food. Quirky egg cups like these adorable Bordfolk ones make a unique and practical gift that can be used for many years to come (I still have my favourite ones!).
A gift for both Mum and child! These Mama and Mini KeepCups from Melbourne’s Small Print Design are stylish, good for the environment and super cute.
I often feature products in my gift guides from Aussie online store Lucas Loves Cars. I love the range that owner Helle stocks for kids obsessed with anything that goes vroom, beep-beep or toot-toot.
Some of my favourite two year old gift ideas from here include the Haba Threading Building Site Blocks, the stylish Wooden Excavator Table Light, and cool OYOY Adventure Rug – perfect for any car obsessed kid!
And thanks to Lucas Loves Cars, Gift Grapevine readers will receive 15% off all products storewide until December 31, 2017 when using the discount code: grape15
Puzzles are a creative way to encourage eye-hand and fine motor development. A quality wooden puzzle like this fun Make Me Iconic Iconic Munchies design or any of the chunky puzzles from Melissa and Doug make a fantastic gift.
Made from environmentally friendly materials and dishwasher safe, this 17 piece Tea Set from Green Toys would provide lots of fun inside and outside the house.
