By age 2 a little boy is no longer a baby, and is certainly into the realms of toddlerhood. Sometimes this stage is referred to as “the terrible twos” as parents tend to see more emotional outbursts and boundary-pushing behaviors. However, 2-year-olds are not simply terrible, it is actually an extremely important time for neurological and cognitive development and the brain grows significantly during this time.

If you’re looking for a gift for a 2-year-old boy the list we’ve put together here will help with all these different kinds of development.
