Suggested toys for 18 - 24 months

Carli Rohner

Elwood Toy Library Post #1

You may have noticed your toddler likes to carry things from one place to another and put things into their correct places. They enjoy pulling, tugging, dumping, pushing and hammering. From around two years old they will begin to complete simple ‘insert puzzles’, problem-solve, look for missing objects or pieces, recognise themselves in photos and enjoy simple stringing or sorting of things like beads or buttons.

 

Based on these interests, here are some toy suggestions that will encourage this type of play, suitable for toddlers: 

·         Pretend play, especially with a domestic theme

·         Small slides & rocking horses

·         Animal tail dress ups

·         Matching shapes & colours

·         Water and sand play

·         Insert puzzles

·         Ride-on toys

·         Shopping trolleys 

 

What toys are appropriate to borrow for my child? It's a common question asked at the toy library. The answer isn't necessarily based on age, but on the developmental stage of the child and, of course, personality and interests. 

 

If you need any assistance in choosing suitable toys, please do not hesitate to ask one of the volunteers on duty (they may have a similar-aged child) or our coordinator, Simon.
