(StatePoint) Shopping for a toddler? Whatever the occasion, the best ways to maximize fun are with gifts that inspire the imagination and help kids learn.
Consider these age-appropriate gift ideas to delight the tots in your life.
Give curious kids opportunities to explore the what, why and how of the world around them through scientific exploration. Many age-appropriate science kits exist for little ones. From planetariums to chemistry sets to crystal growing kits, these are fun ways to delve into scientific disciplines like astronomy and geology at a young age. Plus, many such science kits are a great way for young kids to develop motor skills.
You can even consider pairing this gift with a field trip to a children’s science museum or the zoo to make scientific fun even more engaging with an interactive experience.
Fun on Wheels
The colorful, interactive Go! Go! Smart Wheels playsets from VTech, a leader in developmental stage-based electronic learning products, will spark toddlers’ imaginations and encourage creativity, while helping them explore concepts of cause and effect.
Kids can go for a ride with Gavin the Go-Kart on the Go! Go! Smart Wheels Race & Play Adventure Park. Children can improve their motor skills by cranking Gavin up the playset’s hill, launching him with the catapult and racing him down the track into a 360 degree loop. Gavin will also respond to SmartPoint locations with fun sounds, phrases, songs and melodies, helping children reach language, physical and motor milestones.
