DC is coming up to his 2nd birthday and I want to update the toy box - so what are your 2 year olds playing with?

I think every child is different. My ds has just turned 2 and he is really into musical instruments, guitars, drums etc... He's also liking puzzles-simple jigsaws and such. But mainly, its just instruments, he would take his guitar to bed with him if he could!

DS 2.2 likes his Fisher Price school bus, plane and tractor.# He likes his wooden railway so he is getting wooden Thomas and friends trains to add to it at Christmas.
He just got an Aqua Draw and toy laptop which are proving popular.
He likes his ELC Postbox game and lots of books to be read.
Also his toy buggy and doll. The 2 year old boys next door and over the road love their wooden railway's too if that helps. Great for adding to over the years if relatives want to buy them a gift.
Hope to help :-)

Set in puzzles and simple jigsaws
Magnetic letters and numbers

DS1 is 2.2 and loves Thomas. He also has a Happy People "Noah's Arc" which is another current favourite. He's always liked jigsaws and it quite a bookworm (I love raiding the charity shops)

Scribbling with crayons
Making me cups of tea with tea set

...but this all pales considerably in comparison to playing with 'babies' - my DTs are obsessed with dolls and anything to do with them.

occasionally his drum kit
stones (he calls them baby dinosaurs)

Cars, cars, cars.... (they call the Lamborghini 'kinky' that is ever so appropriate IMOgrin)
Airoplanes, tractors, trucks.
Dinosaurs, especially the pterodactyl :-)
Plastic animals.
Building blocks
Mega blocks for building garages for the abovementioned zillions of cars.
Books. Galore. More books.
Dried leaves, mud and rocks.
Climbing like young mountain goats on acid.
Running like wild and jumping off all tall objects they can get to.
Wrestling and chasing each other around.
That's twins for you. Not quite 2 yet though.
