Two-year-olds often come with their own set of challenges, many of which stem from a growing sense of independence and a shortening attention span. One way to deal with the often-frustrating combination is to present toys that encourage pretend play, like this adorable Leapfrog Ice Cream Cart—which serves up more than just fun.

What we love

  • Scooping and serving pretend ice cream is just half of the fun; this toy offers tons of educational games that help toddlers build memory, sequencing, counting, fine motor and social skills
  • Ice cream orders ranging from simple to complex will continuously challenge little ones’ budding intelligence
  • Toddlers can easily push the cart wherever they’d like, allowing for fun on-the-go

Summary

Loads of lessons are hidden within this too-cute toy—plus, who doesn’t love ice cream?
