Best Christmas Gifts for a 2 year old perfect gift store
Here is a selection of the best Christmas gifts for a 2 year old which I put together for people who are shopping for 2 year olds and aren’t sure what to buy.

Shopping for toddlers used to be a huge pastime when my kids were small, but I kind of forgot about that aspect of childhood when my children grew up.

And then, lo and behold my daughter had a daughter and wham, I was back to buying gifts for kids!  This has meant that I needed to brush up on the latest toys! When they’re 2 it’s all about the toys. 

Last year she was 2 at Christmas and I had to do some research for her gifts. This consisted  of taking Lilyana and her little boy cousin to the store and  watching what they actually ended up playing with. So here is a list of the top toys for girls and boys two years old, based on that research. Enjoy!

LeapFrog My Own Leaptop
A Top 10 Christmas Gift for a 2 Year Old 

I got this LeapFrog’s My Own Leaptop for my 2 year old granddaughter and she absolutely adores it! She gets it out and plays on it while her Dad works on his laptop.

It has different ways for parents to personalize it for their child. Her parents programmed it to say hello to her from her Mom and Dad when she opens it up. (super easy to do!) Toddlers age 2 and up like her delight in the six kinds of pretend computer play in My Own Leaptop.

It is very durable and user friendly and introduces children to animals, shapes, letters, music, and more. With a Leaptop, you’ll give your child a fun yet instructive introduction to using computers. Available in other colors too!

Legos and Blocks for 2 Year Olds
Top Rated Christmas Gifts for a 2 Year Old 

Lego Duplo Basic Bricks

Legos are just amazing inventions aren’t they? Anything they can imagine, they can make out of legos. We had buckets of these genius toys. I think 2 is the perfect age to start them with blocks. 

Legos and Blocks are fantastic toys for toddlers that will last them a lifetime. They are great for sparking imagination too. I used to tell my children they could go home and build a wonderful toy that was even better than whatever doodad toy they saw in the toy store.

Most of the time that worked.

Washable Crayons
Shopping for the 24 Month Olds

Crayons are a genius invention! So much fun. And now you can download coloring pages for free all over the internet. But for 2 year olds, they have to be washable or you are in for lots of frustration and extra cleaning. 

These are perfect Christmas gifts for a 2 year old, especially for stocking stuffers.

LeapFrog Fridge Phonics Magnetic Alphabet Set
LeapFrog Fridge Phonics


When you’re in the kitchen trying to cook or clean up, and they still want to be with you, an easy way to keep them entertained is to have some magnets on the refrigerator they can play with. Two is not too early to get them started on phonics which is the time tested way to teach letters and reading…This toy does it in a fun way!

LeapFrog Letter Discoveries


Another fun way to learn about letters and it looks like a laptop so they will gravitate to it, since toddlers want to mimic what they see everyone else doing.

Two is a big year of change so this one might be more suited to an older 2 year old who is approaching 3. For getting them interested in letters and sounds, this is one of the best Christmas gifts for a 2 year old.
