Toddlers love to play and they love to move. They are very active and very curious. Toddlers are constantly on the go and quite often, it is difficult to find toys that can keep them entertained for more than five minutes. As a mother to two boys, I have some secrets on the types of toys that can keep your boy toddler interested.
Boys that love things that roll. Any toy that rolls is interesting to a toddler boy. It can be a ball or it can be a car. My toddler has a big thing for trucks and trains. If you interested in finding toys for toddler boys that roll and move as they much as they do, Little Tikes is definitely a place to visit for the holidays. Any of the ride-on toys can be a hit with toddler boys who are constantly on the move.
Construction toys. Boys love to build no matter their age. They also like to knock down things, and my living room has paid on daily basis with all the things my toddler knocks down. If you would like to save your living room coffee table, check out wide variety of construction toys by Little Tikes and Step 2 have this holiday season.
Play Centers. Play centers can always keep a child occupied and busy for hours because they allow children to role play and we all know toddlers have wonderful imaginations. Further, they are educational because they allow children to explore. A Real Projects Workshop from Step 2 would keep a toddler entertained for hours and is a toy that would still be interesting until about age six. From kitchens to construction kits to doll houses, Step 2 has a variety of play centers to keep your toddler interested well into the school age years.
Educational toys. There are a wide selection of age appropriate educational toys that you can pick out from many major toy retailers such as ToysRUs and Walmart. Anything that teaches colors, songs, numbers or the alphabet can be a big hit with both toddler boys and toddler girls. Puzzles are great at teaching toddlers shapes and memory and matching skills. Board books, pop-up books and even sound books can easily catch a toddler’s interest. Interactive sound books can teach memory skills while teaching a variety of shapes, colors, numbers, concepts, and sounds.
