DD is (just) 3 and the youngest of three, so we already have all the staples of bricks, brio, cars etc., plenty of craft stuff, loads of soft toys. She has baby dolls and accessories and she's too young for "fashion" dolls (and I doubt they'd interest her). She has a doll's house (was DS2's). DS2 is getting a DS and the plan is that she'll inherit his Mobigo, so I don't really want to get another electronic thing like the Innotab/Leap pad. I'm getting her the Ikea kitchen and some stuff to go with it, but I need some ideas for other family members. She or her brothers already have quite literally everything I can think of for this age group!

Thanks grin

Bubble machine, simple 'joke' stuff like whoppee cushions/snake in a jar of nuts, hula hoop, space hopper, books?

My dts are three soon and dt1 is getting a toy cash register from my mum. Tey are both getting micro scooters and associated accessories from us ad I am considering a play tent of some sort from my inlaws. It is really hard though, my two are my 4th and 5th children so I really don't want any more little play sets and the like - we seem to have hundreds!

New bedding set?

Hungry hippos? Elefun?
The outlaws are getting these for my 3yo DD (might be because I asked them to as I had HH when I were a lass and want to play it again)

Thanks for all the ideas grin

She's getting a new bed ("with steps Mummy") sometime next year so will be getting new bedding then and I've got her some books already (they always get 2 or 3 each), but the cash register is a good idea and also the camera - trying to find a good offer on a Kidizoom (DS2 has one and she does tend to try and commandeer it!). Games are a good one too, thanks!

Orchard toys jigsaws and games are fab and don't take up much space.

Ocado have a good offer on the Kidizoom.

Dressing up stuff?

Ooh, I'll have a look at Orchard toys, thanks.

I saw the Ocado deal but they don't deliver here unfortunately sad

How about crafty stuff and dressing up clothes - both are popular with my DD?
