We phased out our infant room and changed it to a young toddler room (16 to 24 months).

once we removed the baby equipment ( swing, bouncer, etc) it looked really empty). Here's what's in there:

Small table and chairs
Foam climber
Rug
Couple riding toys
Small shelf with toys hard toys
Soft toys
Books

We plan to put a small kitchen and accessories in there. What else?

Kitchen is a big hit. I have a bunch of plastic food, felt food and wooden food that I change out weekly. I also have a pizza parlour set for the kitchen area which gets changed out. They also really enjoy the Little People play sets. I had the farm and the dollhouse. I also have some Happyland play sets, the firehouse and schoolhouse which they like. My DD started imaginary play at 16 months!

Toy phones, strollers, toy dogs in purses are a big hit as well as any and all musical instruments!

I have the same things in my infant/toddler room except I have lots of containers/baskets. Big, small, plastic, cloth, square, circular......anything they can put things into they LOVE!

I also have two sets of Little Tike mausical instruments. Drums, tamborines, and maracas. The little ones love being musical.

Oh and tons of blocks, those peek-a-boo blocks and a bunch of giant Lego-type blocks. They really love the blocks.

These are the things my kids play with the most. They are 19 and 20 months.

Mega Blocks
Riding toys
Doll stroller
Grocery cart
Dolls
Tea set--they are just now starting to play with it instead of dumping it. We've been practicing tea parties.
Large blocks-I used the Capri Sun juice boxes covered in contact paper. They build with them and they line them up and walk on them. We do a lot of "Up" and "down" as they step up and down over and over...and over and over.
