Looking for more birthday gift guides? Check them out here! There's something so magical about 2-year-olds . They're starting to become their own person, debuting their personality and aren't afraid to tell us what they do (and don't) like—which can make gift-gifting a little tricky. But we've done the hard work to find the gifts that any 2-year-old will obsess over. The key? Opt for functional toys or gifts that will last beyond a few months.

From educational toys that'll help them with developmental skills to fun splurges that'll grow with them for years to come, here are our tried-and-true picks.
