Building and Constructing Toys
Toddlers love playing with wooden or plastic block toys. Look for toys focusing on skills like building, stacking, knocking down, and rebuilding. Towers are a good choice. Start small with a few blocks. As their skills improve, they’ll get better at stacking the tower higher and higher. Alphabet blocks are another great choice with a dual purpose. They’ll help kids get familiar with their ABCs, and they’re in the right shape for stacking.
