Best 2yo BDAY Gift?

My DD will be turning 2 Oct 31. Anyone have suggestions for good toys?
Im mostly interested in anything that will make her think/use her brain in any way :) Thanks ladies.

  • For my daughter's 2nd birthday, we got her a Step 2 kitchen and some play food and dishes and I can't tell you how much in the past 8 months she has used this thing...SHE LOVES IT!! May not make her "think," but it enhances imaginative skills. We've bought her so many of those Leap Frog and V-Tech toys and she rarely ever (if ever) plays with those.

  • A good idea for a 2 year old is wal mart or k mart or wherever in thetoy department they also have a musical instrament area. They have little maracas, drums(samall ones) , but they like things that makes noise, while also stimulating there brains. That ,and its fun when you crank the music, and let them just have at it. hope that helps some.

  • my son is in love with beads....the big ones that he can string on a piece of rope....its big enough for him to hold and work on. He also loves shape sorter things. He loves to build things and line things up. He also likes things that ask him to press the letter and or numbers. We bought him some blocks and we ask him to seperate them by color, or shape and he does. Might seem like something for younger children, but he uses his mind more that way.
