I'm not sure. I've been getting lego. And those star wars series, my son really takes a liking to them.

There are quite a lot of "compatible" types which are imitations and cheaper. But for 2yo kids, uplo (or compatible) is the appropriate size.

Hello,

I find my 2 1/2 yr old DD has really gotten into duplo, blocks and puzzles. She really enjoys floor puzzles but we so need to do those together. Other favourites are cooking toys and musical instruments.

Lego sets are great, they are very expandable, older lego sets will never be left aside and forgotten because with imagination your child can always find a way to intergrate whatever he has together.

Indeed. Lego sets nowadays are getting very expensive, especially those superhero ones or themed ones.

Puzzles and lego are my go to toys for my 2 year old. He's enjoying it so much. But as early as 2 years old, I have also introduced him to educational books. I would prefer to give my kids some books to read rather than giving them all the latest gadgets.

I think the best value toy for boys is a bouncy ball - they can use it from 6 months to 12 years old and beyond if the ball doesn't go flat first. Motor skills - covered. Eye-hand coordination - covered. Sharing and turn-taking - covered. Train perseverance (adults may give up first) - covered. Counting (count number of times you can catch/bounce/score a goal successfully) - covered. Language - covered. Strategy - covered. Suitable for both introverts and extroverts, suitable for use on both land and in water. Doesn't take up much space, easy to wash and keep, best classic toy.

Two-year-olds are on the move and getting into everything, but with toys like a play table that sings about the food it's cooking and wooden puzzles that require a magnetic fishing pole, your tot will be so busy, he won't have time to get into trouble!
