A toddler is a child 12 to 36 months old. The toddler years are a time of great cognitive, emotional and social development. The word is derived from “to toddle”, which means to walk unsteadily, like a child.
Toddlers are most curious to explore the world as they have just acquired motor skills and the urge to explore is strongest. They are attracted to colourful, interesting looking, and sound generating objects. They want to touch, examine everything to understand the things around them, they often put things that come into their, hands in their mouth. So all this makes it really hard for parents to pick appropriate toys for toddlers. As they may put the toys in mouth, or choke themselves, leading to a whole lot of anxiety in the parents mind.
