Need gift ideas for a 2 year old boy? Look no further - we have a fantastic selection of great gifts and toys for toddlers at this important stage.

At 2 years old, toddlers are learning more about themselves and the world around them. They're also talking... so prepare to hear them ask "Why?" about everything! Help them understand the logical connections between things with educational books, fun puzzles, and hands-on construction kits.

At two, little boys are also becoming more socially aware. They still tend to 'parallel play' next to other kids, and won't like sharing, but group games and musical instruments are a great way to get toddlers interacting and playing together.

And of course toddlers are extremely eager to explore. This means they'll spend a lot of time testing their limits (and yours!). 2 year old boys become increasingly confident at walking, running, and jumping, so it's not hard to keep them active. All that exploring tires them out quickly, and they'll need 10-11 hours of sleep every night - plus a daytime nap.

But bedtime can be tricky when toddlers are scared of 'monsters' or 'the dark'. Reassure them with hugs, kind words, and a friendly nightlight by their crib.

And no discussion of the toddler years can avoid that dreaded phrase: "the terrible twos". Toddlers don't have the words to tell adults what they need or feel, and temper tantrums are how they express those frustrations. If a tantrum looms, get down to their level, lower the tone of your voice, and ask them to explain what's upset them. This helps them learn how to express their feelings. And once they're calmed down, distract them - they'll soon learn it's pointless to be grumpy when they could be playing with a cool toy instead!
