Ideas for 10 month old 2nd child

My baby girl will be 10 months at Christmas and I'm struggling to think of appropriate toys for her. Her birthday is a few months after Christmas as well. We've already got sound button books, touchy feely books, lots of baby type toys. I know she doesn't need anything but I want to get her something that is 'hers' not just a toy that was from her sister!

Same situation here. Think we're going to go with one of those large wooden cubes with activities on the side, and beads on metal wiggly bars on the top (not sure if that makes any sense at all, don't know what they're called).

Another option is one of those sort of marble runs with massive ball-pit sized balls (again rubbish description..).

Exactly the same issue here. DS2 will be 7 months and has everything he needs.

Worryingly, my plan is to get exactly the same two items as cheese. DS1 has a marble run and loves it, so I'm hoping he'll be happy to help entertain DS2 with the ball run!

God knows what's going in the stocking though

Those tunnels you get from ELC thatvshe can crawl through (great for motor skills, even if she s already walking )

Tent / wigwam (they can both play in this

Balls of different sizes shapes and textures

Drum / musical shakers / bells / Marakas

I would definitely get her a scuttlebug - we've had so much use from it and still do

My DD will be 11mo at Xmas & we already have a lot of stuff... I've bought her some happyland stuff for her to grow into- figure by next time we are buying a 'big' gift next Xmas she will be almost 2, so this is something she will start to play with before then iyswim!?! Plus DS has bits of happyland already from when he was smaller so it will add to the collection
Also got her a scuttle bug for her bday- they fold up small so don't take up much room. Got it online from aldi for £20 delivered.
Other than that got her clothes, board books, new bath toy which DS will prob play with & a nice rag doll

Really struggling, we will have a 10 month old too but her bignsisters will be just-turned-5 and nearly 3. I am probably going to get her a Grimms medium rainbow and a set of textured balls. We have so much Happyland, Lamaze Solenty and no space for a walker. It's more about her having a couple of presents to open so the others don't see her being left out, but she literally would be fine playing with their things and the boxes!

Not really bargainous, but always seems to be Smyths codes around.

We got our 2nd DD this wooden activity cube for her 1st birthday. It's really beautiful to have out on display as well as a toy and well made.

Sorry, just remembered this thread. Great ideas thanks. We do have limited space but I can see the activity cube is popular. My toddler would also love the ball run. Not thought of scuttle bug but good idea. Play tunnel would be well received too. Off to google the rainbow mentioned. Thanks everyone!

The Grimms stuff is beautiful - pricey for what it is, but beautiful!

Some boat here. Davis getting a cosy coupe (£35 from elf). Won't get that much usage yet, but he doesn't get gifts later in the year like summer born dc1 does.

*dc2 not Davis

I'd get something the older sibling will want to play with so that DC2 can 'share' it. Helps redress the balance of the older one constantly having to share toys they see as theirs.
