The Best Toys for Toddlers 1 to 2 Years

As littles begin to transition from newborn to toddler stage, so too will their interests. Ensure minis have the tools they need to learn and explore with our curation of top toys for toddlers ages 1 to 2. Read on to explore some of our top toy picks, from interactive toys that bring on the fun and learning to ride-ons that’ll help them develop their motor skills.

The Best Outdoor Toys & Ride-Ons for Toddlers

Encourage toddlers to find their footing with ride-on toys. Consider Skip Hop’s Zoo 3-in-1 Ride On, designed to support toddlers and grow with them as they develop their walking skills. After taking their first steps, minis can use the Zoo 3-in-1 Ride On as a wagon to push their toys in. Once ready, the wagon easily converts to ride-on mode, so they can hop on and use their feet to steer them. And once they hit toddler stage, the Zoo 3-in-1 Ride On transforms into a scooter. Looking for ride-ons that double as charming room decor? Browse our selection of rockers from Soft Landing, available in adorable characters (from dinosaurs to narwhals) they’ll love.

The Best Educational Toys for Toddlers

At this age, toddlers will begin saying their first words and using hand gestures to communicate. Further motivate and build up their communication skills with educational toys that introduce them to shapes, colours, counting, sorting, and more. Our recommendation? LeapFrog’s Touch & Learn Nature Sound ABC Board—it teaches little ones about animals, nature sounds, and the weather, and the toy itself is made of sustainable materials.

The Best Plush and Stuffed Animals for Toddlers

Find their new best friend at Indigo from coveted brands like Gund, Squishmallows, and more. Bring on the smiles and joy with Baby Gund’s Animated Flappy The Elephant plush, which sings and plays peek-a-book with littles. It’s also 100% huggable.
