What's your little girl into?

What have you already got her?

Books are always fab - You Choose is a favourite, or the new one by Nick Sharratt- christmas fancy dress.

My 3yo loves spiderman, Cars (film), monsters inc, ben and holly's little kingdom and peppa pig.

Maybe a film? Or dress-up outfits? If sge does like dressing up and you don,t already have a main present, then a cheap wooden chest, some long pieces of fabric, a sword and shield, short black trousers, a waistcoat, a bandana, tiara, shiny fabric, hats, any manner of random pieces of clothing, would make a fantastic starter kit for a dressing-up box

One thing dd loces playing with, whicb will work in the dressing up box, is rapunzel hair from a display I made once.
I got a big ball of yellowey-orange yarn, cut it into strands about 6ft long, groupe them into 3s and plaited them. Dd sonetimes pretends it's hair, sometimes it's a rope, sometimes it's a snake grin

Thanks all. Have few bits and pieces but no main present. Grandparents and aunts uncles buying her board games/ frozen stuff/ crafts. Can't think what to get from us

Dolls house. Play kitchen (the one from Ikea is cool). Sylvanians.

Our daughter is 3 and a half. She is getting ballet shoes (to start classes in Jan.), a new bicycle and some books this Christmas plus colouring book and felt-tips in her stocking.

Happy36 Mon 22-Dec-14 00:43:02

^ (Well, technically she´s getting the bicycle from the 3 kings on 5th Jan., as we live in Spain, but the other gifts from Santa on Wednesday).

Thank you, some great ideas there x

My 4y/o dd is getting a few Frozen themed bits and pieces, some Lego (Friends and City), and a Hot Wheels racecar track.

UnfortunateUsername Mon 22-Dec-14 01:46:00

Frozen, Lego Friends, Power Rangers.....everything and anything really!

QuicheMama Mon 22-Dec-14 03:16:32

Playmobil. Just that grin

GingerSkin Mon 22-Dec-14 03:39:06

We were in toysrus yesterday and picked up a large bracelet / jewellery making kit for £15. Dd had a mini one and spent hours playing with it a few months back, so think this large one will go down a treat. Dd is 3.4yo.

We've also got her jigsaws, train track (ikea), peppapig toy and mr tumble stuff (spotty bag).

What tv programmes does she like? Any toys linked to it?

4.9 yo dd is into dressing up so she has got Elsa and Anna dresses from her brothers, and the Sophia dress from my in laws.

She also has a snow glow Elsa, my little pony, pens, craft kit, duvet set, clothes, DVD, Lego, books from us and various family.

What about a CD player?

SootInMySack Mon 22-Dec-14 06:52:54

How about a Karaoke machine? Or a big dolls house, a dressing up box with a load of outfits, build a bear with accessories.

WhatWouldTheDoctorDo Mon 22-Dec-14 07:09:48

Is she just 4 or nearer 5?

Some main present ideas:

Puppet theatre
Play shop
Lego City set
Scooter or bike
Playmobil set (lots of different ranges to choose from)
CD player (DS, who's now 6 loves listening to audio books on his)
Kids camera (or cheap proper one)

Anything Frozen, The Range have so much Frozen stuff in-store that I can recommend -

Magazine subscription - National Geographic Kids is a great choice!

A trip to the theatre or a special trip to Peppa Pig World to look forward to -

Nothing like leaving it to the last minute OP fgrin

nickeljrismybabesitter Mon 22-Dec-14 18:08:12

Have a look in yiurelocal mothercare or wilko's - I've been in both today and they're stuffed with great gifts.
A cash till, a basket with food in it, and a ahopping trolley - all for under £40 in total and make a great big gift from parents smile

nickeljrismybabesitter Mon 22-Dec-14 18:13:14

"Your local"

Lovelydiscusfish Mon 22-Dec-14 19:43:25

Scooter, dolls' house, toy farm, train set, Wendy house? (You may of course already have all these things).

michellervogel1950 Mon 05-Oct-15 12:11:19

The things that she want from Santa are small character toys/figurines, also hello kitty bike (with seat at the back for her dolly), barbie princess, double buggy with twin babies.

The three things above seem to be what every 4 years old girl really wants. But what I would be happy for her to have at this age is for her to have friends.
