Selecting Toys for Toddlers (1-3 Years)

selecting toys for toddlers

As your child is now walking, practising running and jumping etc. and is keen to engage in more challenging experiences now is the time to introduce more educational activities plus active toys to your child.

Toys that encourage and develop language, social skills, cognition, gross motor and fine motor skills for this age group are very appropriate.

Look for toys that stimulate brain processes and introduce: colour, size, shape, counting, matching, patterns, sequencing and puzzles to your child.

Other toys that are suitable for this age group are those that extend and develop your toddler’s fine motor and gross motor skills plus hand eye coordination. This is also a wonderful time to introduce more books, simple instruments and simple toys that encourage role play and promote positive simple social skills as they continue to play beside (parallel play) their peers and siblings.
