Mine is getting:

New plastic dinosaurs for his collection (
Braciasaurus, Carnataurus and Parasaulophus)
Dinosaur onesie
Dinosaur storybook and wallchart (Cheers poundland!)

From my Mum and Dad he's getting:
Dinosaur puppets
Dinosaur Train station and Time Tunnel for his Brio track
Pop gun

I have got the twitch and am seriously considering:

this rather fine dinosaur tail
A pirate telescope and "treasure" (chocolate coins)
A highwaymans hat to go with his pop gun (Big fan of Julia Donaldson "Highway Rat")

Dd was three the week before christmas last year and got - Playmobil, Dollshouse (non playmobil but furnished with Playmobil), a little bit of Lego, books, board games (Frustration and Hungry Hippos).

Her most played with item was the Playmobil swimming pool.

A big balance bike, lots of books (he would read all day), jigsaw - 4 in a box and dinosaur dress up. Plus a kaleidoscope and world snap playing cards for his stocking. I'm getting him one or two more things - possibly a talking buzz light year and microphone/voice changer.

My parents - playmobil and clothes.

lanbro Sat 28-Nov-15 08:07:54

A balance bike, kinetic sand, a guitar, duplo, dress up clothes. My 2yo is getting the same!

A paw patrol sticker book
Brio station for his track
New engine - Duck I think

Maybe some Lego.

Thinking of a tap art set where you hammer in little nails to the shapes.

A wooden train set and books plus stocking bits. We don't buy much as she doesn't really enjoy opening presents. After the 3rd present she's bored of it!
No idea what family are buying for her. She will end up with lot's from them though.

LikeSilver Sat 28-Nov-15 09:25:10

A Vtech Kiddizoom camera, books, a Cinderella costume, a couple of jigsaws, and a stocking full of (adored) Disney Princess tat.

Grandparents are getting her a toy theatre with puppets and play dough stuff.

Chrisinthemorning Sat 28-Nov-15 09:38:15

Various wooden Thomas bits including Tidmouth sheds, cranky, various engines.
Remote controlled Thomas
Fireman Sam transformer
Kinetic sand and other bits in a stocking
Duplo fire station
Hopefully a yellow submarine

FourForYouGlenCoco Sat 28-Nov-15 09:46:24

Toddler Elsa (£15 in wilkos!), marble run, snakes & ladders, one of those drawing activity books and then some little stocking bits and bobs - stencils, ink pads for her stamp set, nail gems (she is OBSESSED), smarties tube, etc - nothing over a few quid. Need to find a nice barbie that doesn't cost ridiculous money and then that's her done. She is the only niece/nephew & grandchild though so the family tends to go a bit overboard!

DrasticAction Sat 28-Nov-15 09:47:31

Oh I am sooo tempted by kinetic sand, probably for next year now.

Play doh cake mountain/ MLP horse play doh


Lucy the dog

djeco game

special play doh stuff called blubber or something

and lots of little bits like wind up minion toy, jumping beans, recorder, etc.

SpanielFace Sat 28-Nov-15 09:54:20

From us:
Playmobil pirate ship
Doctors kit
Dolls bottles, bibs etc set (DS2 is due in January and he is baby obsessed at the moment, he has a baby doll that goes everywhere with him!)
Craft stuff - paint blotters, dinosaur stamping set
Sticker book
Some new books
Aldi plastic dinosaur
Need to get some little bits for his stocking.

From family:
Pirate dress up
Sword and shield (I might regret that one!)
Playdough icecream factor
Dolls pushchair
Not sure what else! We are a big family on both sides and he normally gets quite spoilt.

unlimiteddilutingjuice Sat 28-Nov-15 10:10:34

Wow, some great presents here!
I think I might get the Paw Patrol sticker book myself.
Bellejournee What Kalidescope are you getting?

Olecranon Sat 28-Nov-15 10:36:23

She is getting walking Bing, sing along Elsa, Anna and Elsa dresses, light up Elsa shoes, Playmobil school bus, care bear, some my little ponies, some paw patrol figures, big cuddly peppa and George, crayola case with washable pens in it and lots of books and Melissa and Doug sticker books. Toy till and shopping basket with food. Far too much probably but I don't buy throughout the year.

Bellejournee Sat 28-Nov-15 14:24:54

Unlimited - it's from a little independent toy shop near to wear we live, I think it's a big jigs branded one :-) Just a little stocking filler. I ended up picking up a noisy police car from Elc today too, they've got a pretty good sale on. It was £4, down from £12 - so that's in place of the voice changer I think. Still undecided on a buzz light year, but might cave last minute on that one!

LovelyWeatherForDucks Sat 28-Nov-15 17:22:49

Imaginext pirate ship
Lift flap pirate book

Thanks Bellejournee D's has been talking about telescopes and I'm in two minds about what would be most exciting: actual telescope with lenses or telescope shaped Kaleidescope.

strictlylurking Sat 28-Nov-15 18:35:23

DS is 3.5

From us he's getting:
-one of those Micro Mini Scooters
-a Marble run (because I looooved them as a kid)
-a Thomas and Friends Take & Play set (he specifically requested this one)

In his stocking:
-a reusable sticker book
-a Water Wow coloring book
-some phonics flash cards
-chocolate coins (also a request of his)
-some gingerbread men
-some sweets

I was wanting to get him some Paw Patrol things as he is crazy about the tv show, but when I ask him about a favorite character he just says "I like all of them!" And I don't really want to shell out for all the characters and a set. blush

SallyStarbuck Sat 28-Nov-15 18:43:37

3.9. She's obsessed with Toy Story and so only really wants Jessie the cowgirl and Mrs Potato Head, which she's getting. Also an Elsa doll, a dress up set, snakes and ladders (though we might hold on to that until her birthday in Jan) and then a stocking with small things in - stickers, pens, hairclips, toothpaste and toothbrush (honestly gets very excited by this).

From other family members she's getting Duplo, and easel, and a new baby doll with clothes.

We're trying to be sensible and not buy her lots and spend money that doesn't need to be spent when we know she'll be happy with the few things we've got her. There'll be other years when she has her eye on more expensive things!

FixItUpChappie Sat 28-Nov-15 21:58:04
