Toys for ages 1-2 encourage natural play
Play is an inherent part of the natural instincts of all children. Babies and toddlers are especially inclined to use play as a way to learn more about their environments and build essential skills like hand-eye coordination and problem solving. At Kmart, you'll find a variety of toys for ages 1-2 that can help your child reach important developmental milestones.
When you're shopping for interactive toys, you'll find that they feature bright colors, movement and sounds that engage and delight both babies and toddlers. Many of these toys make noises or play music meant to catch and keep the attention of very young children. Some models, like Big Hugs Elmo, sing and dance, as well. Others focus on number recognition by helping kids count or get them started with letter sounds and saying the alphabet. Both letter- and number-related skills involve basic pattern recognition, so even children who don't yet talk can benefit from playing with these toys.
Educational games and learning toys focus specifically on getting kids started with the essential skills they'll need later in life. Play sets, tables and interactive systems geared toward the baby and toddler set feature shapes, letters and number just like interactive toys do, but they are designed to give a more intensive learning experience. More than just playthings, these toys encourage problem solving while teaching babies and toddlers to recognize colors and patterns. Some are designed to aid children who are in the early stages of standing and walking by giving them something to hold onto as they play, thereby improving coordination and balance.
Electronic toys take the concept of traditional stuffed animals one step further by adding sound and movement. Babies and toddlers love watching and listening as these toys dance, sing, walk, talk or zoom around. And when it's time for a nap, the toys can be put in the crib or taken to bed to give kids something soft to cuddle with. Like other toys for the 1- and 2-year-old set, electronic plush toys are colorful and just as fun to look at as they are to play with.
Whether it involves singing and dancing, counting and saying the alphabet or learning to recognize shapes, play is an important part of development for all children. You can find popular Sesame Street toys and other favorites for your kids when you shop at Kmart.
