It was my darling daughter’s 2nd birthday yesterday. The celebration was very simple. We just had a small dinner at home with family. Her grandparents came over during the day but did not stay for the night. They brought a very big birthday present. And my child really liked it. My husband and I really appreciate everybody, especially his parents, for coming to celebrate with us.
One thing that the grandparents picked this birthday present for their granddaughter is that, it’s a pretend toy. Kids in toddler stage has strong imaginations that they begin pretend play. For toddler girls, here the three special gift items to consider.
Kitchen Set – Great for pretend play like house or restaurant…cooking, baking, frying, dish washing, etc.
Grandpa and grandma gave her a kitchen set. There’s a microwave oven, conventional oven, dishwasher, and fridge. There’s a stove, sink, and organizer on top. Included also are pots and pans, oven toaster, utensils, and some grocery items. Whenever my daughter is having a quiet time, she plays with her kitchen in the bedroom.
Cozy Coup Car – This is a toy car recommended for toddlers to use outdoors. It’s push or pull type of coup.
I bought this cozy coupe car for my toddler last year and boy, she loved riding this red car. When it was new, she wanted it inside the house and ride. And whenever we’re outside, she likes to stroll around the house with it. What’s cute is that she will stop and stand beside the car and open the white cap on the side. She sticks her index finger in the hole. She pretends that she is putting gasoline in the car.
Pop-up story books and educational books – These are good presents for toddlers since they are getting more acquainted with colorful pictures. Pop-up storybooks are great because the pages show 3-D pictures in the books. Counting books are interesting for toddlers because at this stage, they can recognize numbers and might be counting from 1-20 like my daughter does. Exposing young kids to reading will give them the ability to learn early and fast.
My daughter is 2, and she loves to play and read story books. I am glad that she enjoys these things.
