12 Best Toys & Gift Ideas for 2 Year Old Girls

In this article we have assembled a list of premium and highly rated toys and gifts for 2 year old girls in order to help you find the perfect birthday or Christmas gift for your child, grandchild, niece or friend’s child.

By the time your little girl reaches the age of 2 she is walking quite well on her own and actively engages in play. Her fine and gross motor skills are beginning to develop quite well and they enjoy exploring the world around them.

You may be wondering what criteria we base our selection of toys and gifts for 2 year old toddler girls on. We base our selections on the following:

We look at the educational value of a toy for the child. This includes any toys that aid in the mental, emotional, and physical development of the child. This includes gross and fine motor skills as well as cognitive development.

We also look at the entertainment value of the toy including the toy’s ability to hold the child’s attention and grow with the child as well as the elusive “fun factor” that brings a smile and giggles to the child.
