Gifts for two year olds

Here is my ultimate list for gifts for two year olds. I tried to add a variety of toys for both boys and girls. As well as try to add books and imaginative play things. Hope this list helps.

Play Kitchen

I thought long and hard about what age to give your child a play kitchen when I was making all my gift guides and I think two year old is the perfect age. They start to play around with it by opening the doors and the next year they will start to imaginative play by making food for you. My boys have the number two kitchen in the picture below. It’s the perfect size and we love it.

Play Food

This is the play food I have for my boys and they love it! I got this for them when they were two years old and they had so much fun pretending to cut all the food. Don’t even look at other play food options, this is the best one. I love the wooden food with the magnetic connect.

More of my top favorite play food sets

If you are looking for fun and good quality play food I’ve got your back. I listed our top favorite play food and play food sets we use in our home.

Trampoline (Amazon) (Walmart)

This is a must during the winter months and one of the best purchases I’ve made. If you are looking for gifts for two year olds this would probably be my number one suggestion. My boys love it!

Scooter (Amazon)

This is perfect for a two year old. They can grow with it and you get 3 for 1. Great deal!

Roller Coaster Ride on (Amazon) (Kohls)

I’ve only heard amazing things about this ride on roller coaster. Wish I would have had this when the boys were younger. I’m thinking about getting the next size up for bigger kids. This is so fun for in the house or summer outside.

Little Tikes Car

You can’t go wrong with a good push car. I bring my boys cars in during the winter and they have so much fun with it. Make sure to check out my favorite ride on toys for toddlers blog post HERE.


Air Fort

This Air Fort is so brilliant and so fun for toddlers. Two is the perfect age to start with this tent and they will have so much fun running around inside or just hanging out. You do need a box fan to make it work.

Toddler Couch Chair

I got these chairs for my boys last year and they love them! I even sit in them sometimes so I know they will be used for a long time. I move them around from the playroom to their bedroom and then the living room. They use them a lot.

Little tikes slide

You can’t go wrong with this slide. My boys used this all the time during the winter. We use it now to set up little obstacle courses in the house during the colder months. So fun!

Sand Box

You can’t go wrong with a sand box. My boys love playing in the sand.


Train Table

I have a train table for my boys and they love it!


Wooden puzzles are perfect for two year olds. I thought this was a great set because it came with letters, numbers, shapes, and fun pictures. Puzzles are perfect for gifts for two year olds.



I talked with so many of my friends with kids and we all agreed that two years old is the perfect age to introduce the doll. I still have my American girl doll bitty baby that my boys play with. They love playing with the doll. I listed two options for a doll and I think they are the best. Melissa and Doug Doll is great and a reasonable price. If you want to spend more and have the best baby doll on the market the American Girl Doll Bitty Baby is by far the best. I link both below.

Baby Doll Stroller

How adorable are these strollers. You can find links to each stroller below the picture.

Cleaning Play set

Fisher Price cars with little people

My boys have the fisher price garage and they loved that. I used that for awhile before I bought them a bigger carport when they were three. The fisher price toys are perfect for gifts for two year olds.

Toy Story Toys (Woody) (Buzz)

My boys were two when they got their Buzz and they never let him go. It was the sweetest thing to see. I think this is a great age if your kids love Toy Story this doll would be perfect. Action figure dolls or stuffed animals are perfect gifts for two year olds.

Duplo Lego Train

Duplo legos are the best gifts for two year olds. I would bring legos in my purse places and they would just put 4 bricks together.

Instruments Toddler Music

Car Ramp


If you follow me on Instagram you know I’m always talking about Lovevery toys. They are hands down the best quality toys I have ever seen. Every toy is well thought out and exactly what they are suppose to be learning at that age. It is a subscription, but I think its well worth it. You can buy some single toys at Target if you don’t want to commit to the subscription. The picture below is part of one of their two year old play kits.

Best Books For Two year olds

A book can be great gifts for two year olds. These were some of my boys favorite and still are their favorite to read. If I could pick their top two favorite books at this age it would be Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and Red ripe strawberry. These are two books they started to memorize and read with me. Such great books for two year olds! You can find the links to these books below the picture.
