12 Amazing Gifts for a 2 Year Old Girl
2 year-olds are an adorable group to gift. They're transitioning from toddlers to preschoolers and imaginations are taking flight. 2 year-olds love imaginative play, and acting out what adults do in their daily lives. Thus, we included great gifts like the latest play kitchen, a tea set, a quality baby doll, first flashlight, and classic toy record player. 2 year-olds are also working to improve their coordination, so gifts like beading sets and balancing toys are great. Then there are the fun options featuring characters they love like Elmo. And let's not forget that beloved figure: the princess! We've got a castle tent and horse & carriage ride-on that are sure to be hits. Read on and find a gift fit for a princess. Or a 2 year-old.
