Toys for 18-Month-Olds (Mostly under $50)

 

By this age, your baby has transitioned from infant to toddler. Toddlers learn best through exploration of their natural environment. So, teachers, caregivers, and parents can support learning by providing activities and toys for 18-month-olds that promote development.

Toddlers develop balance and coordination while playing. Toys that require standing or riding foster gross motor. Toddlers can also work on fine motor skills. Chunky pieces of puzzles and stackers help build grip-strength and hand-eye coordination.

Moreover, somewhere around 18 to 24 months, toddlers start to transition into the preoperational stage of cognitive development. This is when they begin to use their imaginations to think symbolically and engage in pretend play.

Thus, good toys for 18-month-olds encourage imaginative play to support the transition to symbolic thinking.
