The Best Gifts and Toys for 2-Year-Old-Girls on Amazon
If you're looking for a birthday present for your 2-year-old girl keep in mind this age group loves acting out what adults do day in and day out (think making dinner in a play kitchen, hosting afternoon tea, or, if you're a vinyl kind of family, spinning records). Also, fact: 2-year-olds will without fail fall for something cute and fluffy with multiple appendages (enter the stuffed octopus). Below, the best toys and birthday gifts for 2-year-old girls. And yes, if you have a princess on your hands, we've got you covered too.
Good For Playdates
This camping play set has realistic pieces including a weenie and roasting stick, a campfire, and a glow-in-the-dark lantern. Also it comes with what 2-year-olds really want: pretend s'mores ingredients. Preschoolers can stack a s'more, pop a weenie on the roasting fork, and "build a fire." The set also includes a duffle bag to pack everything up (and keep pieces from ending up as dust collectors under the couch).
We love this unbelievably cuddly stuffed octopus by stuffed animal geniuses Jellycat. It not only makes a perfect bedtime buddy but this undersea creature comes in three sizes—12 inch, 22-inch, or a statement-making 34 inches. If you want to win the birthday party, we suggest going with the big one.
For Disney Fans
If you have Minnie Mouse acolyte in your life, this adorable DUPLO set is a no-brainer. Kiddos can use the 21 chunky pieces to construct a festive birthday party for Minnie and her cat Figaro. Kids love Minnie's pink convertible and of course, a birthday cake and parents love that DUPLO sets are great for building fine motor skills (not to mention keeping 2-year-olds busy for hours).
Best Baby Doll
Cabbage Patch Newborns are the perfect first baby doll. Soft and huggable, she comes with her own swaddle blanket and can even suck her thumb. You'll also get a "birth announcement," and a new toy she'll probably have with her at all times, let's be real. Added bonus for parents: the hit of Cabbage Patch Kids nostalgia.
Best Kitchen Add-on
If your 2-year-old already has a play kitchen, go ahead and add this baking set by early-childhood-toy-making wunderkinds Melissa & Doug to the mix. This set includes a hand mixer, eggs and butter, a pan, recipe, mix box, spoon, and the cake itself. Like a lot of Melissa & Doug toys, this quality set inspires imaginative thinking and cognitive skills. Pop that cake in the oven and bake up some fun.
Toddlers love this interactive dollhouse. Emma and Jack do chores like feeding the dog (also included), washing dishes, making the bed, and picking up. There's even a light in the kitchen. Best for ages 1-5, the Big Helpers Home is a great get for the $40 price tag.
Best First Ride
For the girl who wants an upgrade from the standard Cozy Coupe, there's this. Best for ages 18 months to 5 years, there's a removable floor board so as your toddler grows, you can remove the floor board and let her power the carriage with her feet. There's also a cup holder, clopping hoof sound effect, a "trunk" for toys, and a roof handle so parents can steer and push if needed.
Trendiest Play Kitchen
KidKraft's new Farm to Table play kitchen has on-trend touches like a window box for veggies, a chalkboard for daily menus, and a farmhouse sink with lights and running water sounds. Also, we love this particular play kitchen because assembly is super easy, unlike some play kitchens that make Ikea furniture look like a breeze to put together.
This child-friendly record player comes with five double-sided records to choose from—all your toddler has to do is wind it up and put the "needle" down to rock out to "The Farmer in The Dell" or "London Bridge." The records fit neatly in the back of the player and there's a carrying handle for easy travel.
Preschoolers love hosting tea parties, and the Serving Shapes Tea Set is more than just pouring pretend tea. The five cups and saucers are color-coded and designed to teach colors, numbers, and shapes. Kids can match, sort, and stack as they build fine motor skills and work on recognition. The colorful teapot has a bonus feature: all the pieces can be stored inside. Which is excellent news for cleanup time.
