Gifting SOS: Five Perfect Presents For A Two-Year-Old

For day two of GIFT SOS we headed over to Williamsburg’s sweetest and most expertly curated toy pit stop, Willy’s Toy Box. Every single product (think retro “Vanilla scooters” from French toy maker Janod, and Milliwik’s brilliant Splashimals cards) has been hand-picked by husband and wife owners Raphael and Barbara – and if they ain’t wowed it doesn’t make the cut. These are their gift-picks for kids around the two-year mark.

The starter “lego”
Rubbablox Building Blox ($49.95) are soft, velvety natural rubber foam blocks which allow children as young as two to construct simple shapes. The ideal first taste for budding builders

The Best Beginners Bike
We’re excited about the just-launched Hape Tricycle Walker Ride On ($99.99), designed to encourage romping and physical play. It’s also suitable for riding both inside and out

The 3 layer jigsaw
Djeco’s wooden, multi-layer puzzles ($26.95) leave ordinary jigsaws at the curb and will keep your little ones enthralled way past the age of two

The must-have for rookie artists
Also from Djeco; Finger Paint Tubes (set of six, $18) come in a bright rainbow of shades and are washable, waster-based and non-toxic. So the perfect first-time kit for mini Picassos

This sturdy, beautifully made Color and Shapes Peg Game ($38) from Germany, will allow little ones to create many stacking variations and improve motor skills
