1-2 Year Olds

Toddlers are busy making connections and comparisons, noticing similarities and differences between objects (size, color, shape, noises, textures, etc), and delighting in exploring new things. Children at this age often experience an explosion in their language development. A caring adult can facilitate vocabulary growth by naming, commenting on, and asking questions about the world and objects all around them.

We offer a variety of XL animal figurines with many textures and sizes that will delight the toddlers in your life, and will provide you with tangible objects to boost your child’s development through play. Here are some of our fan favorites.
