DD turns 2 a few weeks before Christmas & am in need of ideas for both occasions.

We're thinking about getting a play shop for one but no idea for the other. Ideally we want things that'll last her throughout the following year. Doesnt have to be big - could be a few smaller items.

She is DC2 so we already have playhouse & small cooker, easel, trampoline, balance bike (although too big atm), happyland, duplo etc all handed down from DS. She's also already got a baby & pushchair.

Any suggestions welcomed!

Books are a really good gift. Some lovely books for her age if you don't have already include:
The Tiger Who Came to Tea
Peepo
The Lulu series

Watching this as I need ideas too....

Kiddizoom camera? Dd same age loves pretending to take photos. A big selection of craft stuff? Consumables so won't take up lots of space (see my thread on alternatives to 'stuff' !) Agree with books. DD still loves all her 'that's not my' books whilst ds wasn't remotely interested at that age!

Scooter? Dd loves her micro scooter and is still using the d handlebar until she's big enough for the proper ones.

Thanks for the suggestions so far.

Meringue - hadn't thought about books! we have a few of the Lulu books already (which she loves) but not the other two so will def look those out.

Funny you should mention kiddizoom Misty9. DS got his out today for the first time in ages - DD loved it! So would probably enjoy one of her own.
Ooh...scooter - fab idea, she really loves anything that moves so pretty sure that'd be a hit.

Gizmo hope this is some help for you smile.

Keep em coming folks!

We got DD1 a farm for her second birthday. Three months on she is still playing with it every day with no sign of slowing down. We are really pleased with it, and all the bits fit inside and the sides fold up so it's a great portable toy for stays away from home too.

I'm making a home made dressing up box (hats, dresses, necklaces etc rather than proper outfits) for my daughter.

Misty9 Mon 03-Oct-16 18:53:50

We've got that farm too evil and dd loves it too!

T0ddlerSlave Mon 03-Oct-16 19:04:08

It was baby mania for DD at that age, so a bag of baby accessories would be a good buy - bottle, bib, comb etc.

Playdoh would be good too. With the implements, cutters etc.

Thanks for the extra suggestions!
Like the farm Evil & baby accessories great idea T0ddler she is mad on her baby at the mo so would love that.

Our little girl will be getting a cheap ride on tractor older bro is getting a decent one so easiest way to stop fights an Imaginext pirate ship and a big Sylvanian dollhouse that I got an amazing discount on. She loves Imaginext stuff. Might have to hold back some of the smaller Sylvanian parts but secretly cannot wait to play with it myself

Plus smaller stocking fillers and books.

If she's getting a shop, you could accessorise with basket/play food etc? My 2 love the Melissa and Douglas wooden food sets.

cheekyfunkymonkey Thu 06-Oct-16 23:50:37

Playmobil stuff, dolls accessories if she is into them and has a favourite, dress up stuff, bath toys, sewing cards, Mr potato head.

I think I'm going to get my dad who is 2.5 the asda wooden dolls house but get some of the posher rosebud elc accessories for it, the actual house is £35 from asda though rather than £100 smile she got the asda wooden kitchen last year and has played with it like loads xx

Franny- we did your idea and just to say the ELC sets go very well with the Asda dolls house and saves you a fortune too. It's been a big hit over the last 18 months and one of the most popular toys when friends come round too- very robust!

Frannyboo90 Tue 11-Oct-16 19:36:10

Oh that's great to know user ❤ thankyou very much xx

Sugarcrystal2002 Tue 11-Oct-16 21:28:33

Watching this thread as DD is 23m on Christmas day. DH and I have different views over whether she'll be old enough for a toy kitchen then

Frannyboo90 Wed 12-Oct-16 13:52:09

Sugar my little girl got her kitchen on her 2nd Christmas when she was about 19m and she's played with it a lot more since she's turned 2 xx

Frannyboo90 Wed 12-Oct-16 13:53:06

My mil has offered to buy dolls house which is lovely off her but that was my big present idea! Should I just get her all the sets to go with?! Xx
