A few weeks ago Reader Natibuda asked an interesting question on our Open Thread:
I often see essential gear for 0 to 1 years, does anyone have essential gear lists for 1 to 2 years, 2 to 3 years? What is the essential gear for toddlers?
She received some good suggestions from other readers including a step stool, potty, tricycle, booster seat, bath toys, and art supplies. For anyone who missed the Thread, what else would you add?
What's your toddler's favorite thing to play with? What's been your most useful item of toddler gear?
