If you need to buy a birthday gift for a two year old, keep in mind that all children love toys. The child's parents might prefer the gift to be educational, and you can find that and still make it a fun gift for the child. Clothes also make a wonderful gift for a young child, at least from the parents' point of view. You'll have a lot of options to choose from, so consider carefully before you buy.
Toys for Boys
Give a two-year-old boy a toy toolbox and let him discover what a power drill looks and sounds like. Toy cars are another great birthday gift for a boy when they make sound and have headlights that light up. An even nicer birthday gift is a set of trains that come with a variety of tracks and lots of accessories. If you want a train set that is less elaborate, give him a colorful wooden toy train set that will help him develop various skills. A rocket that sounds and lights up like the real thing is another birthday gift you may want to give to a two-year-old boy.
Toys for Girls
Almost all little girls like dolls, and a doll that wears clothes designed to teach her how to dress herself and lace up her shoes is a great learning toy for a two-year-old girl. A tea set is another birthday gift that will delight a two-year-old girl, and tea sets can be found in different patterns. A pretty apron to store crayons in makes a useful birthday gift. A purse that comes complete with things a grown up would carry in her purse is another birthday gift to think about.
Toys for Boys and Girls
An interesting and educational gift for a boy or girl 2 years of age is a toy laptop. A toy computer can teach a toddler words and other things and keep him entertained. Another one is a large block that has gears, a mirror, a clock and other fun thins. Other types of blocks you can purchase for a 2 year old include animal blocks that teach a 2 year old how to recognize different animals and the sounds they make and old-fashioned wooden alphabet blocks. An animal puzzle that emits noises animals make when pieces are placed in a puzzle is another interesting birthday gift. Books that play songs children can sing to are also gifts a 2 year old can have fun with.
Clothes for Boys and Girls
Little girls look adorable in dresses, making a dress a wonderful gift to give a 2-year-old girl. Styles to think about include pinafore dresses, wrap dresses and cotton T-shirt dresses. You may also want to give a toddler a one-piece outfit that is made with over-the-shoulder straps and shorts. An outfit of this type is called a romper. A warm jacket with a hood is a great birthday gift for any 2-year-old boy or girl. You may also want to consider a knit hat as a birthday gift.
