What are the right toys for two-year-olds? Toys that are simple.

Wooden blocks to build with, trolleys to push and transport, puzzles, shape sorters and stacking toys. This is the high point of schema play and heuristic play. Toddlers are learning about the world and how it works. Play is how they do it.
