The Greatest Birthday Current for Toddlers


Final week, we celebrated the second birthday of my honorary niece, Georgie.

We went to her household’s home for bagels and low, and lots of children ran round underfoot. The toddlers obsessed over Toby — “Mommy, he’s a TEENAGER!” — and Anton satisfied me to let him attempt a cup of milky espresso. In the meantime, Georgie wandered ghostlike by way of the chaos with a vaguely anxious expression.

That night time, once we had been all preparing for mattress, I mentioned to Anton, “I don’t assume Georgie knew it was her birthday immediately.”

To which Anton replied: “I don’t assume Georgie knew it was *a* birthday immediately.”

Haha, little children are the cutest/greatest. Earlier than going to the celebration, I had requested CoJ readers for present concepts for two-year-olds. (It’s humorous how shortly you overlook!) The #1 suggestion?

The Melissa and Doug ice cream set is a winner,” wrote Mariah. “And it lasts without end.” Added Anon: “I second the Melissa and Doug ice cream set! My daughter received it two years in the past, and each our youngsters nonetheless serve us ice lotions. each. single. day.” Then Julie mentioned: “We gave our two-year-old the Melissa and Doug ice cream set, and when her cousins, ages 5 to 14, had been over, they ALL performed with it!”

Different good concepts?

“Okay, I agree that the Melissa and Doug ice cream set is superior. However I got here right here to say that one of the best two-year previous toy EVER is the Dyson play vacuum that really works. I don’t know why, however you don’t query one thing that excellent, you already know?” — Jennifer

“Greatest present I’ve ever given was to a two-year-old: We put a helium balloon with a protracted string into a large field. When she opened the field and the balloon floated out, she went wild! She grabbed the string and ran all around the home after which spent a lot of the afternoon making an attempt to drag the balloon again down into the field to reenact the opening with everybody on the celebration.” — Shannon

“Traditional books from our personal childhoods or our older kids’s childhoods,” says Mariah. Provides Agnès: “A guide is and can all the time be one of the best present! And you may learn it to Georgie!!” Claire writes: “Presents for a two-year-old: Books, all the time books.”

And, lastly, “it’s humorous as a result of my go-to two-year-old present is the Melissa and Doug faculty bus you really helpful ages in the past, when Toby was little!” — Katie
