Active toys

Seek toys that encourage child to be active. Toddlers are doing physical tricks as they are stronger & more confident.

Choosing Toys

Choose toys that can be used a variety of ways. Toddlers love to take apart, put back together, pull out, add on, and build up.

Toy tip.

Plastic Rubbermaid bins with the sealing lid are very spacious and better than toy chests, and hampers because they have a top that closes tightly and goes over the bin, making it hard for the toddler to access the toys and preventing them from throwing toys all over the room.

Toys for the car only.

Pick out a few interesting toys and books just for the car: I found that I could defuse the tantrum that inevitably occurred when my toddler realized that he was about to be strapped into a car seat by strategically offering him a toy or book he didn’t get to see all that often.

Limiting toys

Place only a few toys out on the floor – it is best to limit the amount of toys that you let your toddler play with, make sure to keep other toys out of sight and out of reach to prevent your toddler from pulling them down and throwing them every place.

Giving your child a few toys to play with at a time, gets your toddler used to the concept of neatness, and when it is time to put the toys away, your toddler might be able to do it because of the small amount of toys.

Swapping out toys

Toddlers get bored of seeing the same old toys every morning. Stash a group of toys in a closet, attic, or basement so that every eight weeks or so, you can replace the been-there-done-that toys with some “new” toys, toys from your very own store.
