Q: How can I get two 2-year old boys to play together nicely?

A: There are some age appropriate toys that have multiple sets of things, which they can both play with at the same time without fighting. Or a project that they both contribute to assembling...something big enough that they can work on it without getting in each other's space. May I suggest Place & Trace by Discovery Toys...a set of three separate puzzles geared to their age? Give each boy one puzzle with its 4 pieces. They can complete their individual puzzle, use the puzzle pieces to cut out Play Doh, or even cut out cookie dough and bake cookies in fun dinosaur shapes or transportation or house pets (each puzzle has a different theme). Often, an open-ended toy will be played with in different ways by different kids. That's what you need to look for.
