I bought this kitchen set for Amelia for Christmas and at the time it was on sale for $90! It’s $140, I believe, now, but it is totally worth the price! This kitchen set is adorable, sturdy, well built, and did I say adorable? It does take about 2 hours to assemble, but it’s worth it to have a wooden kitchen set instead of something plastic.
This stainless steel pot set is high quality. So much so that you can actually use it on a stove.
Toddlers love to stir things. This set it adorable and looks realistic. Again, I’m all about getting away from plastic so this is an excellent choice if you feel the same way.
I know, I know. You are paying for a bunch of cardboard. You know what though? Playing in your kitchen is so much more fun when it’s realistic right? My daughter loves pouring me milk and OJ. I’m a fan of this set 🙂
We love this set! The vegetables are the same size as the real deal.
This tea set is wonderful! You get 2 tea cups, a tea pot, a sugar bowl, a cream pot, cookies, a set of “tea bags”, 2 spoons, and a menu to pretend you are at a restaurant. We love playing with this set!
What are your favorite kitchen sets and accessories?
Sliders are the perfect toddler food. Hopefully my picky eater will like these. They certainly look promising.
I’m excited to try this! I’ll add a salad or green beans as a side.
I’ve made this before. It’s delicious! I also frequently make it without the sausage.
One of my favorites!

This adorable magnetic dress up doll set is so fun! I love that the doll is a female doctor and the clothes you can dress her up in are more than just pretty dresses. She can be an astronaut, police officer, wonder woman, and more. What a positive and empowering message for young girls. This set develops fine motor, counting, and sorting skills and encourages creative expression and imaginative play.
These magnetic puzzles are great for honing those fine motor skills and developing hand-eye coordination. My daughter has a blast playing with these and she gets so excited when she “catches” a bug or fish.
Toddlers love hide and seek activities, mixing and matching, and sorting things. My daughter absolutely loves putting smaller items in boxes and purses and such and then rearranging those things. This puzzle is perfect for fostering that curiosity. This toy improves memory and fine motor skills
I was resistant to the whole screen time thing at first. I started off saying my child won’t watch too much TV! Hahahahahaha! Oh, how naive 😉 TV is not the enemy I’ve realized. As long as I’m mindful about what Amelia watches and plays with it can be a very useful educational tool. For a little under $100 you get the tablet, a case, and a year subscription to FreeTime which is basically Amazon’s Netflix for kids. You can download movies, apps, games, books, etc all of which is approved for kids. I have all sorts of counting, alphabet, naming colors and shapes types of games on this tablet and Amelia is learning so much! As long as screen time is interactive and encourages Amelia to think and play I’m fine with it. Zoning out and mindless screen time is something we try to avoid.
I have this map up on the wall in Amelia’s room. Not only does it add some flair to the walls, but Amelia loves naming all the objects on the map with me. We’ll play a game where I say things like, “Okay, Amelia find the penguin!” Also, she’s naming the continents already and she’s only 2!
My daughter loves putting her stuffed animals in this cart and walking around the house with them. She also loves sitting in the shopping cart even though the products details specifically state not to let your kids get in the cart. It’s perfectly safe and sturdy and I bet they have that disclaimer because their lawyers told them to have it. This cart is pricey but it looks like a *real* shopping cart and it is super sturdy. I think it’s worth the price to not have another plastic toy in the house.
My daughter is really in to horses right now. This rug is so fun! It comes with 4 horse figurines and a fence. She has a blast pretending to run the trails and drink from the trough and eat the apples from the apple tree. Also, it adds a nice pop of color to the floor and makes her room look like a play haven.
This barn set is so much fun! Like I said earlier, toddlers love hide & seek activities, sorting, matching, etc. This toy is great for hand-eye coordination; concepts of color, size, and number; counting; problem solving; narrative thinking; and creative play. Mom points: the barns stack together for easy storage 🙂
I hope you find this post useful! There are a million toys out there and it can be overwhelming. What are your favorite toys for 2 year olds?
