The toddler/preschool stage of a child’s development is crucial as young brains grasp concepts that lay the foundations for future learning. Curiosity soars, as anyone knows who’s heard the question “Why?” a million times. Mobility and independence increase, as do language and the ability to understand social cues.

Balls, dolls, blocks, books, costumes, cars and trucks, ride-ons, push toys, pull toys, and manipulatives all are important toys during this stage as children develop large muscles and large imaginations.
