Some toys are more educational while others are more for role-play and creativity, but you can’t go wrong choosing a toy from this list! Read on to discover some of the best toys for 2 year old girls.

There are a lot of water mats, but this is our favorite out there. With Stencils to make fun shapes and letters, this aqua mat is not only fun but great for child development.
The mat is 36″ x 36″ so it is a good size but also not so big that it takes over most of the room. There are absolutely no chemicals, just water needed to draw. It is definitely one of my favorite toys for 2-year-old girls.

Most Unique Toys for 2 Year Old Girls
Kids Bumper Cars (Yes, Bumper Cars)
As a mom of 5, I can’t believe I am saying this but I actually recommend this toy, in fact, it is one of the most used toys in the household. First off, I was very skeptical of such a device roaming through my house let alone putting my child in it.
There are honestly endless laughs with these bumper cars. They have a rubber outside, so they don’t scuff up any walls, and a seatbelt so that your child is safely inside the vehicle. There is even a remote control, so if your child can’t grasp the controls, which they will do in no time, you can be the driver and just wheel them around.
Starry Light Projector
Well, it’s been a fun day of play, but now it’s time for bed. Your child will have sweet dreams with this Starry Night Light projector. This circular light projector features two different theme projections: ocean life or starry night. Ocean life features jellyfish, whales, seaweed, and bubbles while starry night has small and large stars with a crescent moon.
The projector has four colors which can be set to alternate or set to one specific color. This night light creates a relaxing atmosphere to help your toddler calm down and get ready for a good night’s sleep.

Want to help your child improve their fine motor skills while learning shapes and colors? Give this Wooden Shape puzzle a try! With bright colors and smooth polished wood, these small blocks can be placed onto the puzzle board or stacked like blocks for multidimensional play.
This toy can easily be stashed in your diaper bag to take on the go, allowing you to help your two-year-old practice their shapes, colors, and coordination anywhere!
Studies show that balance bikes are the best way to teach your child to learn to ride a bike. It looks like a normal bike minus the pedals because it’s made for your toddler to walk along with.
Don’t forget a helmet though! because they then begin scooting and eventually are ready to ride.
Catching ladybugs is a fun and educational game you can play inside or outside. Our little ones loved taking it in the backyard and hiding the ladybugs. Each bug has a number on the back to help the kids learn their numbers.
