I dunno what to get my friends baby for xmas.

She's always plonked infront of the tv when my friend is busy so i was thinking if there was something that is beneficial to her watching?!

on a budget of around £10-15 too as i have lots to buy for!!

why dont you ask your friend what to get her? you could end up buying something she already has.

Crayons and colouring books.

how about a boogie beebies dvd/ then she is being entertained by the tv (we all do it sometimes!) but will hopefully be up dancing along rather than sitting immobile? my two loved boogie beebies!

If you want a DVD I would definately get a Sesame Street DVD - they are amazing, and I am constantly astonished that it is no longer on TV in Britain.
However, if she already watches too much tv, then how about another kind of activity that she could sit with and play quietly for when her mother wants to do the cleaning or mn'ing or whatever - tea set, colouring, plasticine, Happy Land set, play food? They are all quite easy for a 16 month old to get on with alone for a short time (although will probably want mum to play at some point!)

My first magna doodle, no mess, and they love them, dd has been scribbling on hers since 10mo and its still a huge fave at 3! Or an aqua draw.

don't get her anything tv related sounds like she watches too much tv already!!

how about some nice arts and crafts stuff, or a tea set or dolls?

Happyland - the smaller sets are about £16, but you can usually get a 20% off voucher or watch out for it being on promotion.
