Toddlers, or kids ages 12 months through 36 months of age (3 years), love to participate in role play as they pretend to be just like their parents. They are generally active, and love both music and outdoor play experiences with ride-on toys. They also love construction toys, that allow them to build and use their imagination. These are some of the best toys for toddlers.
2. Baby Dolls
This list of baby dolls includes popular brands like Cabbage Patch Kids, Bitty Baby and Corolle dolls. Toddlers like soft bodied baby dolls, and the Corolle dolls have their own unique baby powder scent. These dolls make a great first companion for young toddlers. Don’t forget your baby doll accessories either, so children can be just their parents carrying, rocking, feeding and walking their babies.
Boys and girls love to begin to stack and construct at this age. By placing flower stems and petals in the green pegboard, within minutes kids can design their own unique flower arrangements.

B.Toys makes some unbelievable musical instruments for kids that are not only cool in their design, but they play lots of appropriate songs.
