Dust off your sneakers and take a few deep breaths, because your toddler will have you running around until you’re ready to drop! Likely growing more determined by the day, toddlers at this stage will be as ready to dissolve into a tantrum as they are to give you kisses. At this stage, your little one has outgrown a lot of their baby toys, but they’re not old enough for more complex ones with small parts. By 18 months old, they are starting to learn more about their surroundings and are engaging in more independent play. This curated lot of 8 objects will reflect their needs for stimulating and interesting toys that pique their interests. The lot includes:
- Age-appropriate wooden puzzle - A slightly more complex puzzle (than the one we sent at 12 months old) will help your toddler continue to develop their logical thinking and dexterity.
- Lawn mower - Toy lawn mowers allow children to mimic another activity they see in the world around them. This encourages pretend play and gets kids moving and mowing!
- Wooden hammer toy - A hammer toy helps your child practice their fine motor skills and gain control in a fun way. Toy mallets will improve your baby's grabbing ability, hand eye coordination, manipulation ability and promote dexterity.
- Pretend play: toy telephone - You little one surely sees you with your phone, so of course they want one of their own, right?
- Wooden blocks (12 pieces) – Babies at this age are working on stacking up to six blocks. Building a tower (and figuring out how to stop it from toppling over) encourages problem-solving skills and hand-eye coordination.
- Wooden pull toy on wheels - Pulling comes well after pushing in a baby’s development. Pull toys may seem a little old-fashioned, but they actually promote many different aspects of your toddler’s development: problem-solving, whole body coordination, and fine motor strength.
- Touch and sound book - Babies use all of their senses to learn, which is why a touch and sound book is important to the further development of words and talking.
- Pretend play - Doll potty or pretend kitchen items (8 pieces) – Whether they want to pretend they’re making tonight’s dinner, or building familiarity with the potty, these toys will help foster independent play.
- Arts and crafts set - As fine motor skills improve, activities like holding a crayon, drawing pictures of family members, and using a pair of safety scissors to cut and paste strengthen coordination, encourage creativity, and foster self-esteem.
