Fun. Imagination. Colorful. Thinking. Movement. These are just a few words that describe the kind of toys that toddlers enjoy and thrive with. When you’re buying a toy for a child 2-4 years old look for big, bright, and colorful elements. And also look for the educational and developmental angles. Here are some toys that caught our eye as fitting this mold, and also being highly rated and top-sellers on Amazon.
What better toy for a toddler than a colorful building set to develop those motor skills.

This Superhero Cape Set is a great way for the kids to act out their imagination. They may be too young to see the action hero movies in theaters, but they can pretend to be the superheroes themselves with these colorful capes and masks. The set also comes with stickers.

This looks like a really fun chair! The Fisher Price Smart Stages chair is an interactive chair that lets your child play songs, role play, learn how to follow directions, and in general have lots of fun. The best feature is that the adult sets the child’s age, and the chair behaves accordingly. There are different interactions for 12M+, 18M+, and 24M+. So the child develops at his/her own pace- what a cool idea. Recommended for ages 12-36 months.
