Simple & Fun Activities & Ideas for Toddlers ages 1-2

It’s never too early to start making choices!

Toddlers depend on us for many things. However, when it comes to play, they're the experts. Playtime is the perfect time to let your child take the lead. The Toddler Box can help by providing simple, child-led, play-based activities & ideas.

Your child will love reaching in and choosing a coin/activity from the box. When you assist them with the activity, and at the same time make it as child-led as possible; you are providing an opportunity to build their self-esteem and help grow their decision making skills. You are also providing an opportunity for them to listen, ask questions, and follow simple directions.

The difference between what a one year old can do and what a two year old can do is pretty big. Because of that difference, the activities and ideas can be easily adjusted, simplified or adapted for wherever your child is at developmentally.

Activities require little to no prep-work, use items you have around the house, and can be as long or as short as you want, depending on your child’s attention span or interest.

Here are just a few of the ideas & activities you will find in the box:
•Try on grown-up shoes, hats, clothes, etc.
•Give a doll or toy a ‘bath’
•Stack-up pillows or couch cushions
•Line-up stuffed animals. Play, talk and sit with them.

The best part is that the ideas and activities never get old...kids can do them over and over again.

AGES: 1-2
ACTIVITIES: 40 Activities
COINS: 20 natural, chunky wood coins, each measuring 1.75 inches round & 3/16 inches thick
BOX SIZE: 4x4x2

Adult Supervision Required

NOTE about the Coins: The coins in the Toddler Box are larger & thicker than what you will find in our other Idea Boxes. The CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) requires most small objects (for children less than 3 years of age) to be no less than 1.25 inches wide. The coins in the Toddler Box exceed that requirement at 1.75 inches wide. Although the coins in our other Idea Boxes also exceed the requirement at 1.5 inches wide, I felt that for the Toddler age, the bigger the coin, the better. In the picture above, you can see the coin being held by an almost 2 year old. The coins are not meant to be used as toys. Although they are not a choking hazard, please monitor your child when you use The Idea Box for Toddlers. Adult supervision is required at all times.

Every so often we get a request to alter or change the wording on our product labels... to personalize it for the recipient in some way. We would love to accommodate these requests, however, we do not offer custom labeling, personalization, or change the name of our product in any way.
Our Idea Boxes are tested per CPSIA regulations for sale in the US, AUS & NZ only. For children's products (ages 12 & under), testing is required for *every* country a shop ships to. As we are able to test for more countries, you will see those countries added onto the shipping options in our store. It's not because we do not want to ship to you, rather, we choose to comply with all safety & legal regulations that are set by your country for children's products.
Yes. We specifically chose the size of the coins we use in each Idea Box because they exceeded the requirements set by the CPSIA. There are two different sizes of coins we use: Large, chunky coins are in the boxes for ages under 3, and our standard sized coins are in the boxes for ages 3 and over. Each Idea Box has been CPSIA lab-tested specifically for the age group listed on each product label.

Note: Idea Boxes are not a toy. We discourage children from playing with the coins in any way.
We are unable to guarantee delivery dates or transit times on any order. The delivery dates/transit times that we receive from the USPS are estimates only. This applies to rush/expedited orders as well.
