If you’re looking for a birthday gift for a 2-year-old or 3-year-old, I have a suggestion for you: Bunny Peek-a-Boo. This new toy by SmartGames won a Parents Magazine 2013 Top Pick from this past February’s Toy Fair. Basically, it’s a 3D puzzle game for young children. There are very few pieces (you don’t have to worry about small pieces getting lost!)–just four sturdy wooden blocks which kids arrange to match different card patterns (there are 60 different combinations–some are tougher than others). Or, it doesn’t even need to be played as a “game”–toddlers and preschoolers will just enjoy playing with them as blocks too. Buy it for $24.99 at Amazon.com.
