To make your task easier, it’s helpful to understand the stage of development a two year old boy is at. Two year old boys are exploring the world around them and better understanding their place in it. They like to touch, smell and taste everything they can get their hands on. They enjoy physical activity, be it playing hide-and-seek or throwing a ball, and they’re beginning to assert their independence. Testing boundaries is a part of this time: the word “No” is sure to pop up pretty frequently!
They may be hesitant to share their belongings with you or other boys and girls. Modelling proper behaviour is extremely important here, so parents should try and use this age as an opportunity to share in front of, or with their two year old boy.
Tantrums are an unfortunate yet necessary part of two year old boy’s development. (There’s a reason why they call this time the ‘Terrible Twos’!) A great way to cut tantrums short is with distraction, and loud interactive toys are great for this! Think loud musical instruments, stackable blocks, electronic push-button toys or if their tantrum turns teary, their favourite comforting soft toy friend may be the solution. We’ve got a huge range of engaging gifts for two year old boys, so finding something perfect won’t be difficult at all.
Two year old boys will be talking. They’ll have a vocabulary of about 50 words, and they’ll be putting together two-word sentences like “Hello Daddy” and “I’m thirsty!” The gift of a book specifically designed for two year old boys is a wonderful bonding activity for adult and child, assisting with the development of a two year old boy’s verbal and auditory skills. Your two year old boy will be pointing to words and images they recognise in the book, and will attempt to mimic your pronunciation, so colourful books with simple sentences are an ideal gift for any two year old boy. Even better, pop-up books and books with flaps, wheels or pieces little boys can remove and replace will keep them engaged and interested. Yellow Octopus has a range of books specifically designed for two year old boys, so you’ll have no trouble at all finding the perfect book!
