Who Rules The World?
GIRLS! When it comes to gift ideas for a two year old girl, we have the experience you can trust! As parents of 2 year old identical twin girls, we know what will make your little lady happy!
Year two is our favorite year. There is so much growth and development that happens both physically and mentally. We love to gift items to our girls that will not only keep them entertained, help them learn, but also challenge them. We have taken the guess work out of shopping. Here are the best gift ideas for a 2 year old girl. Whether it’s your daughter, sister, niece, or child of a friend.
Be it Christmas gift, birthday gifts, or any other occasion these gifts for 2 year old girls is sure to put a smile on their face. These ideas will also be things parents will love and appreciate.
Gifts for Learning Through Play
Last year their grandparent’s gave our two year toddlers this as a christmas gift. This kitchen play set is one of our daughters’ favorite and most played with toys. While I am making dinner in the kitchen our girls are able to make dinner in their kitchen at the same time. We love hearing them laugh and giggle while they use all of the different accessories to create their own fun “meals.” You’re going to love all the tasty (fake) meals that come from this kitchen.
VTech Touch and Learn Activity Desk is a great toddler gift that will grow with whoever you’re gifting it to. From introductory identification and songs to helping kids to follow directions. This desk isn’t only an interactive learning toy, it also transforms into a chalkboard and easel for drawing and learning. But, the learning doesn’t stop at age 2. With this desk, you can expect that this gift will continue to help grow and develop little minds thru about age 5. We love gifts that keep on giving!
We like to challenge our daughters and don’t like to limit their learning to the age indicated on packaging. This camera claims it is for children ages 3 and up. But, with as many photos as we take of our girls, they know how to use our phones to take pictures and videos. This is why we think the VTech camera is ideal! This is the perfect gift to hone in on every little girl’s creativity. The VTech KidiZoom Camera Pix Plus has a slot for a memory card and the data can be transferred to any computer. Gifting this camera to any child could be the start of a passion for photos and start the road to their future.
Music is an excellent way for any child to learn. There are lots of options for toy instruments. However, we’re big proponents of the real deal. When supervised, kids can really benefit from the exposure to musical instruments (even if it hurts your ears). Here are some that make great Christmas gifts for a 2 year old girl.
Meal time can also be a great time to learn. No toys at the table when we’re eating is a big rule in our home. But we know the importance of engagement during meals. Because of that, we love placemats that let ours kids learn while they eat.
Gifts That Get Girls Moving
Our daughters are kids number 2 and 3 for us. Their older brother was 2 and a half when we welcomed them into our lives. At that time, one of his most loved gifts EVER was his Strider Balance Bike. So we knew it was only a matter of time before we became the owners of a pink Strider into our home. Balance bikes are a great way to help your kids skip the training wheels and move straight to a two wheeled pedal bike. With easily adjusted seat and handle bars, this bike is perfect to grow with any 2 year old. If you have grandparents or aunts and uncles who are asking what to get your daughter (or in our case, daughters) helmets make the perfect (and necessary) accessory.
If you’re looking for a grow and go gift option, we’ve found it for you. This 3-in-1 3 wheeled scooter will grow with your child as they’re ready to move on to different outside activities. Our family loves to take walks. Sometimes (oftentimes!) our toddlers insist on taking their bikes, but aren’t quite ready to make it the entire walk without tiring out. This is the perfect option. Then, once she’s ready to really get scooting, you’re ready with a scooter already on hand.
Pedaling is the second hardest part of learning to ride a bike, behind balance. Trike bikes are a great way to help kids learn to pedal. This Schwinn Roadster Tricycle Bike is perfect for helping your toddler old learn to pedal. We actually purchased these exact bikes for our twin daughters for their second birthday. While a newly 2 year old won’t be successful with the pedals the first try, we love this trike bike because it’s low to the ground and allows them to use their feet to walk this bike. Our 4 year old also still hops on it.
Gift Ideas To Help Develop a 2 Year Old Girl’s Fine Motor Skills and Gross Motor Skills
Most kids develop and master their pincher grip during their baby days. We love toys that allow toddlers to continue to grow and develop skills that encourage their brains and hands to work together to achieve a goal. Whether you’re shopping for your own kids or looking for the perfect Fine Motor Skill or Gross Motor Skill gifts, these toddler gifts are sure to have every little girls brain turning.
We love all things Melissa and Doug, but especially these Lace and Trace Farm Panels and Beads. As with any gift we buy, one of our favorites with this is that our girls can continue to play with this for several years as their skill sets develop and advance.
The nuts and the bolts of Fine Motor all in one bag! We love these for the hand eye coordination that is required to get the nut all the way down the bolt. Bonus, they double as a fun game when you incorporate mixing and matching colors. These nuts and bolts also make a fun surprise on long car rides or to keep you little one busy on an airplane. Since they come with their own backpack, clean up is a cinch.
Sensory toys are another favorite in our house. This one is a perfect stocking stuffer, and versatile across the seasons. We love toys that can transition to the water table, or the sand table outside, and then with a quick rinse come inside to the rice bucket or the sink once the weather gets cold.
If you have toddlers who love to get outside and play, you NEED these stepping stones. Our kids love to play with this to hop around and build different obstacle courses. The fun with these stepping stones isn’t limited to outside. These stepping stone are also great for indoor play when it’s cold or raining. When coupled with indoor balance beams, you can transform your house into a mini gymnastic play area.
Speaking of indoor balance beams, these will make the perfect addition to your indoor play space. When added with stepping stones your kids will have hours of fun, but also develop skills that will help them through life.
Let’s Pretend Together
The imagination of a two year old is a magical place. They can take a dress and a wand, and within seconds they’ve transformed themselves into the Princess of your magical home. The possibilities are endless inside the mind of a toddler. Your little lady will love these toys to explore endless possibilities of fun.
If you are considering the play kitchen playset that we showed in the Learning Through Play section, this food set is a perfect accessory as a gift for a toddler girl. Imagine all the delicious concoctions that will be cooked up using all these fake foods.
Why not start them young when helping a growing mind explore different options they can work toward in their future. One of my very favorite things about little humans is how caring they are toward everyone. When they fall down, a kiss or a band-aid will usually fix it all. This pretend Doctor kit gives any two year old a chance to take care of all their sick stuffies and family. The Vet kit helps them make sure all their favorite furry friends are always healthy. Then they can play with this pretend Firefighter set to help them save the day in any emergency situation.
Arts and Crafts
While the glitter, the beads, the pipe cleaners and googley eyes make parents anxious. They make the little ones so happy. Making time for Arts and Crafts really helps with brain development and hand eye coordination. Let your creative genius decorate the walls of your home and the front of your fridge with some of these favorites.
Favorite Gift Ideas For 2 Year Old Girls In Our Home
Having 3 kids means we get lots of gifts for birthdays and Christmas. Here are a few we have, and also think are some of the best gift ideas for 2 year old girls.
Teaching our kids the importance of saving money is top priority, like you we are part of the Cha Ching Queen community after all! All of our kids were gifted piggy banks before they were even born. And, since you should always add a little something, a piggy banks is a great way to help any 2 year old prepare for the future.
Play-Doh is great. And we have our fair share of color choices (more than 20 to be exact.) But sometimes the kids just want something different. Our girls love everything cars and trucking, having an older brother who is really into all things cars. That means our kinetic sand is often turned into a construction site. It’s great to load into dump trucks, move with a bulldozer, and scoop in an excavator. Parent hack- keep the sand on cookie sheets during play time. This makes for much easier clean up. Here’s the sand we love, and also some construction vehicles.
Not only do our girls love to play with construction toys, they will spend hours playing Hot Wheels. That’s right, Hot Wheels aren’t just a toy for boys! This track set is perfect gift idea for a 2 year old girl who loves cars. Also, we added a pack of Hot Wheels targeted for girls. But, girls aren’t limited to specifically pink or Disney Princess cars.
We also love puzzles and building blocks as an opportunity or the kids to experience solo play. Because of that, we have lots of block sets, and different puzzles for all age levels. These are a few of our favorites. Especially the Montessori calendar to help with learning and being aware of surroundings.
Toddler Gift Ideas When It’s Warm
Getting outside any time the weather permits is a great way to get some of that 2 year old energy out. Turn your backyard into a play place with some of these awesome outside gifts. We think your little ones will get hours of entertainment and want to play all day. These gifts are also perfect if you have multiple kids, host a lot of play dates, or like to have family gatherings.
This outdoor bounce house will be hours of fun for any kid who gets a chance to play in your backyard. It’s a quick set up, and easy storage will also make parents happy! Also, if you have indoor space big enough, this is a bounce house that can be used anytime!
Water tables spell hours of fun! This is one of our very favorites. There are so many different different ways for the kids to have fun. Another reason we love water tables for the perfect 2 year old gift is that it can double as a sensory table indoors. All you have to do is add dry pasta or rice to the table for inside play time.
Hot summer days are more fun when you have a sprinkler for kids of any age, but especially for a toddler! This sprinkler will make the perfect gift, and we love the adjustable water height feature.
Gifts For the Entire Family
If your family is anything like ours, you spend a lot of time at parks and on local trails. We love taking our 2 year old twin girls on bike rides with us, but they need a place to ride. We love both of these additions for our bikes to ensure the girls can always join us, and they love it. Both take only a few minutes to hook up, and then you can ride like the wind.
We love this bike trailer because it also doubles as a stroller, and is perfect for trips to the zoo and walks in the park. It’s so light and the set up is quick and easy. When folded, it’s nearly flat. Our girls love riding in their Burley whenever we go on bike rides. Additionally, we own a BOB stroller but use our Burley daily.
If you only need to pull 1 child at a time, this is a great option. Also has the option of pulling 2. It also has the option of converting to a stroller, and folds nearly flat.
We bought one of these seats when our son was a toddler. Then when we found out we were having twins, we knew it would be perfect if Greg wanted to take all 3 on a solo ride. We bought a second so that we could each ride with one of our twins when we go on family bike rides.
We read, a lot. Books make the perfect stocking stuffers. These are a great gift ideas for a 2 year old girl. Check out some that are go to favorites in our home.
