Are you looking for the top toddlers toys for 2013? Then you have come to the right place. Whether you are looking for toys for your own children or for someone else's then you are going to find something here to delight you!

Toys play such a very important role in the life of a child. They help them learn how to share, promote the life skills necessary for their overall development, and encourage fun and imagination as well.

Gifting toys to a child is as fun for the giver as for the kid who receives them. However, buying kids toys can sometimes be a challenging task, but with some careful consideration you can buy one that your kids will treasure.

Things To Consider When Buying Toddlers Toys

What Do You Need To Think About Before You Buy Any Toy?

Before we look at what I think are some of the top kids toys this year let's think about what you need to consider when you are buying kids toys.

A good toy for one kid isn't necessarily be a good one for another child. So, when you buy a toy, you need to consider the child's age, personalities, likes and dislikes.

Age of the Child:

  • The first thing you need to consider when buying kids toys is the child's age. If the toy is beyond the child's level of development, then chances are there that the child might get frustrated and overwhelmed quickly.
  • If the toy is below the child's developmental level, then they will lose interest and get bored. Buying the right toy can help the child's creativity and imagination to grow and blossom.

Learning Or Educational Nature of the Toys:

  • Consider the learning or educational nature of the toy. Most toys have some element of educational value that it educates the child something useful, in addition to entertaining. But, this is not the case with all toys, where it is just a toy with no educational value.
  • So, what you need to determine is what kind of toy you need to give your child. If learning aspect is important, then there are endless of options to choose from.

Consider Kid's Interest:

  • Use your child's interests as your guide and let your own inner child have fun shopping. If your child is fond of animals, then buy them stuffed toy of their favorite animal. Choosing toys that your kids like will definitely bring utmost happiness in their hearts and smile on their lips.

Safety of the Toys:

  • One of the most important considerations when buying toys for kids of any age is the safety issue. Every year, thousands of children get injured while playing with toys their parents, friends or family have bought for them.
  • So, when buying kids toys, it should be inspected properly for safety. Safety concerns that should be considered while buying toys for kids include burns, shocks, choking, sharp edges, and pointed objects.

@fitzcharming that's good to hear and yes kids love making noise don't they! :-)

I can personally vouch for the Step2 WaterWheel. We have one and my grandson loves it. He's 3 and still plays with it all the time. And those noisemaker toys like the pound & tap bench and parum pum pum drum are always favorites with little ones.
