What to give to parents
Mom and dad are the only ones who know the best interests of their child. They are ready to spend any amount in order to please their child. From here and large expensive gifts.
Children’s furniture – a plastic table with a chair for games and feedings, an inflatable chair or a sofa toy. At the age of 2 years, you can donate and bed. For sure, the baby has already grown up and often comes out of it, and a small, with a protective side, the bed will become his new bed.
Transportation – from 2 years old the child is already learning to independently ride a tricycle or scooter. You can give a birthday and a car on the management, which will be an exact miniature copy of a real car, but it will be quite expensive.
Grandmothers and grandfathers even more than their parents are eager to spoil the child and are also ready for any amount. How to please a granddaughter or grandson on his birthday?
A 2-year-old child can buy a mini-trampoline, inflatable slide, wall bars or a “dry” pool with balls.
Often grandmothers care about the comfort and health of their granddaughters, so they prefer to give on their birthday:
- warm clothes (knitted sweater, overalls or a hat with a scarf, it is better to take them for growth or just in age to get into the season);
- bed linen (natural, not bright, and necessarily with your favorite crumbs characters);
- elegant clothes (a beautiful dress to a granddaughter or a real suit to a grandson, such things will always be useful for a photo shoot, a children’s matinee, or just a trip to visit)
- bath robe (warm terry set of towels and bathrobe or a towel with ears is always a useful gift for the baby).
Spiritual parents can give a baby some birthday religious items (a cross with a chain) or a gift for development. For example, a large set of designer type “Lego”, cubes (wooden, soft, large building blocks), double-sided drawing board, “talking” book with fairy tales or teaching material, lacing.
If you rarely see a birthday man and do not know what to give to a child at 2 years old, present your parents with an envelope with money for which they can buy a gift themselves. And give a birthday boy an inexpensive set for creativity (paints, plasticine, dough, a set of pencils an album with stickers).
5 more universal gifts two-year

It is great if choosing a birthday present you know the birthday boy well. If not, you can buy a gift that will appeal to any kid 2 years old.
Educational music poster
This manual with electronic filling, made of water-repellent material. Training takes place in three stages:
- introductory – the baby clicks on the picture and learns the name of the object;
- training – crumb bugs a little story about him;
- control – the announcer calls the word, and the child finds the corresponding picture.
The most popular are posters that teach the alphabet or numbers. But a 2-year-old child is still too early to find out. Now he needs to replenish vocabulary, so look for manuals introducing the names of body parts, wild and domestic animals, musical instruments.
For example, a poster with geometric shapes will be a good birthday present. The drawings depicted on it (house, flower, car, etc.) consist of various figures. By clicking on them, the baby will get acquainted with the name of the figure, its color, and what parts the drawing consists of.

In two years, the kids are just starting to master the role-playing games and so far have a poor understanding of the professions. But who is a doctor, they already know well. They will gladly “cure” the father or the teddy bear: they will measure the temperature, “listen” to the lungs and look at the neck.
Many kids such games help to lose the situation when they are really afraid to go to the doctor.
The essence of the toy is to drive a nail, peg or ball into the hole. Teaches a crumb to hold the hand, control the force of the blow, and develops an eye meter. Especially like active and restless children. In the game, the baby will relieve tension and calm down.
According to the manufacturers, knockers can be used only from 3 years old, in fact they are interesting even for 1.5-year-old toadstools. Make sure that it does not contain small details, and boldly present a two-year birthday.
