Finding just the right birthday gifts for children can be tough. the list of great birthday gift ideas for toddlers and preschoolers can help. You'll find gift ideas ranging from educational gifts to pretend play toys, to activity and artistic toys that help with kids' development.

After a birthday gift that not only thrills any toddler or preschooler, but one that helps them learn too? These present ideas are both educational gifts and fun, so you can relax knowing you've given a birthday gift to foster development and your toddler or preschooler will have a play-worthy present for years to come.      

Outdoor toys

A sandpit will be great fun for your two-year-old, especially if you buy her a bucket and spade so she can build castles or just make pies.Another toddler-pleasing buy is a plastic dumper truck. She'll have a great time loading it up and then dumping her cargo. Many two-year-olds are ball-obsessed, and will enjoy kicking a sponge football into a net. For now your toddler will most likely miss the ball entirely, but as her coordination improves, so will her hit rate.

Build A Village Game

It can be hard to find a great board game for toddlers and preschoolers that is easy and keeps them interested enough to play right to the end of the game. The Build A Village Game from Little Wagon has it all. Made with a thick cardboard base and brightly coloured wooden playing pieces that are safe for littlies, it’s a game the whole family can enjoy. Roll the dice to collect your building pieces, such as houses, cars and trees, and then see who can build their Village first! This game of chance will keep kids excited to the very end, and can be used as a general toy set as well. Just remember to store the dice in a safe place away from the under 3's.


By two years of age, your toddler will be able to enjoy books with more than just a few words on each page. She'll appreciate simple stories, nursery rhymes and repetitive poems, with colourful pictures she can point to. Your toddler birthday present will particularly love interactive books, where she gets to join in the actions or make sounds. Search out some well-tested favourites, such as Eric Carle's Very Hungry Caterpillar or Michael Rosen's We're Going on a Bear Hunt.
