2 TO 4 YEARS
Children who have learned to identify their five senses now find an interest to use all of them. Learning to walk, speak and imitate sounds and words are the three skills to emphasize the most. Toys to choose include musical toys that allow a child to repeat a number, letter and eventually words with sequencing. Push-pull toys enhance walking and puzzles, nesting blocks and other preschool building sets allow a child to learn spatial relations and hand-eye coordination. Be aware that children at this age put mostly everything in their mouth so the toys should be LARGE in size.
