Toddlers are rapidly learning language and have some sense of danger.

They can take turns--and sharing a single toy by at least two kids is often possible for older preschoolers and kindergarteners.
Things for solving problems--puzzles (with 12 to 20+ pieces), blocks that snap together, collections and other smaller objects to form by length, width, height, shape, colour, odor, quantity, and other attributes --ranges of plastic bottle caps, plastic bowls and figurines, shells, keys, counting bears, small colored blocks

When a child has access to your computer: programs which are interactive (the kid can perform something) and children can understand (the software uses images and spoken education, not just print), children can control the software's speed and course, and children have opportunities to explore a variety of concepts on several levels
Security and children's toys
Safe toys for young children are well-made (with no sharp components or splinters and don't pinch); painted with nontoxic, lead-free paint; shatter-proof; and easily washed.
