that she won't already have please?

Everything I suggest, she already has! Not 'spoilt' but lots of generous friends and family. It's my niece who is 3.8. Budget around £15. Honestly, I'm sure age has everything! I've suggested trips out/ season tickets but other family members are sorting those.

That would be nice but I don't think they have one nearby. Their new baby is due this weekend so I'm worried noone will have time to take her. We live far away.

My ds likes the Melissa and doug birthday cake and the cupcakes which you can decorate. He is 3.6
He also likes the large Hama beads.
And the candy cyclone from play doh is very good, it was on sale on amazon.
Will you have to post it? The Hama beads would be ok, not too heavy, the Melissa and doug stuff is wooden so quite heavy.
He likes lots of "boy" type things but the above might be suitable for a girl? Not that she can't like cars etc but my ds is very very into anything with wheels! Apart from the above toys most of our toys are cars, trains or trucks!

Oh and he also likes pop up robots from elc and a 3d snakes and ladders which we had off amazon.

One of the Orchard Toys games? DS loves Incy Wincy Spider and the Wild World Lotto. And then maybe a book or two. You can't really go wrong with those things, especially when she already has so much, those are always good presents.

DD1 is 3.5 and is getting lots of the Orchard games. She's heavily into games at the mo and their games are great. Educational too.

Drawing features alot here too so any crafty,drawing things. Also dont have to worry about already have that toy.

Agree about Orchard games - my 4 year old dd loves them. We have crazy chefs and shopping list. She's getting pop to the shops as one of her Christmas pressies. We've also got her a gorgeous vintage seaside theme snakes and ladders set which was half price on planet pretty website.
Other ideas: a watch, playmobil, lego friends.

Playmobil camper van or Noah's arc. Also agree about Orchard games.

How scout a dressing up box? I brought a kids storage box from Duneln Mill and filled it with dressing up stuff.

Mine wants anything as long as its pink and sparkly. She views games and jigsaws as presents much as I would receiving an iron or a new toastersmile

My dd turned 4 today, she was pleased with the presents we got her. It was a decorate your own cupcake trinket box and a lovely box of beads to make bracelets/necklaces. Got them, 2 for £15 at elc smile
