Toys, toys, toys. The toy industry is worth billions in dollars. When children are older and can voice their opinions about what they want and don’t want, it’s much easier to figure out what toys to buy. But if you’re kids are still learning how to walk and talk, determining what to get may not be as easy. Not only that, even if you feel confident about what to get for your kids, you may feel stuck on what to get their playmates for occasions like children’s birthday parties.
Well it’s time to get unstuck. Here are some toy recommendations for 12-24 month olds. These toys were chosen based on their childlike appeal, quality and their ability to introduce your “little ones” to things they like and need to know. Feel free to explore the affiliate links below.
