10 Christmas Gifts Toddlers Will Be Thrilled To Unwrap
Before you know it your baby is now a toddler who’s getting more expressive with what they want! Picking gifts for toddlers are not as hard as one might imagine. Our rule of thumb is always prioritise toys that align with the toddlers’ developmental milestones and their interests. With the right toys and gifts, you can encourage them to explore the world around them and use their imagination while learning new social and motor skills at the same time.
Once your little one has reached toddlerhood, they start to be more determined and love to figure out how to solve a problem by getting hands-on with everything they come across with. A good old wooden blocks or magnetic blocks can entertain them for hours and hours of play, while scooters and ride-on toys are great for them to explore both indoor and outdoors.
