What do children aged 2-5 look in for a toy?

Toys for toddlers

The best toys are those that promote creative play and can be used in more than one way. Simple toys, such as blocks, animal figures, and vehicles are popular and appropriate at this age. Dramatic play increases from ages two to five, so medical kits, toy kitchens, baby dolls, dress-up clothes and pretend workbenches are worth the investment. Sensory activities such playing with sand, clay, water, bubbles, and even dry beans or rice can provide enriching fun for toddlers. With all toys, be vigilant in avoiding sharp edges and choking hazards.
