As children step their little foot in their second year, they are introduced to a whole new world. As I said, this period is attributed as the transition phase of children; right from walking to knowing and exploring different things. Parents are always there to walk their child through the different paths of life, and just to add to their effort there are learning toys, some of which are tailored to improve and enhance developmental skills.
