Top Ten Toys for Beginning Toddlers...

So, I get updates periodically from the "What to expect..." website. Last year it was "What to expect when your expecting..." Now it's "What to expect the first year..." Today's article was Nine Best Types of Toys for New Toddlers. You can click on the name if you'd like to view the actual article.

However, I put together a top ten list of my own. I call it Top Ten Toys for Beginning Toddlers. T Rex is pretty much a toddler but just barely hit that phase. Hence the designation of "beginning". So without further ado, here it is...

T Rex play area

Top Ten Toys for Beginning Toddlers

10. Old containers (bins, boxes, etc.) - cottage cheese containers, Tupperware, Oatmeal cylinder (that's T Rex's favorite!), water bottles (we even make some special water bottle toys too!)

9. Paper/plastic cups

8. Measuring cups/spoons or spatulas

7. "Bins" filled with things - so he can empty and refill

6. Toothbrush

5. Cabinet and/or drawer in kitchen and bathroom with "toys" in it

4. Pushing/riding toys

3. Blocks for building and demolishing (the domino blocks Grandpa made)

2. Books (especially those with textures or flaps, any Eric Carl books, and the picture book for his photos)

1. Balls - anything that bounces and rolls

In summary, anything that's safe and NOT a toy.

This is a really great top ten list, I've now seen several babies that love toothbrushes, who would have thought. I think Oral-B is missing out on some profit. You can post this or any top ten list to our site http://www.toptentopten.com/ and then link back to your site. We are looking for top ten lists and our users can track back to your site. The coolest feature is you can let other people vote on the rankings of your list.
