What Toys Are Best

Unlike new foods, new objects are instantly appealing to toddlers. Young children enjoy simple household objects—wooden spoons, cardboard boxes and old hats—as much as toys from a store.

Observe your child to see what kinds of things she is learning and discovering—whether having to do with cause and effect or the difference between herself and others—and find objects and activities that support her efforts and reward her curiosity.
