I need to find a gift for my niece and my nephew born in September and August last year. Also for other nephew aged 2.5 years and nephew aged 5 years ( although he'll probably be happy with some Marvel stuff). Budget is up to £20. Ideally something I can order online, preferably Amazon as I have prime membership until the end of the month. Basically they all have everything already, enough clothes to clothe a whole city ... more toys than Toys R Us ...

Any ideas very welcome. My own dc are much older so no idea what's in!

I bought my 13 month old some books, crayons/colours/finger paints, a nice melamine dinner set, Duplo, bath toys and a Vtech set. She doesn't have many toys already though so buying bits wasn't too hard! Galt and Melissa and Doug do quite nice toys.

I was today recommended the wooden car transporter (John Lewis £18) for Gds aged 17 months - friend had bought it for a Gds a couple of months younger and said he loves it. Very good reviews online. I am picking up tomorrow from Waitrose. .

For the one year olds I would get them a set of Tomy hide and squeak eggs and a helium Christmas balloon

Colouring books
Bath toys
Play doh
Sticker books
Reading books

If you want to buy 1 big present rather than little ones I would get the vtech bus as it teaches them numbers and letters.

For my one yr old born last July, we’ve got her a scuttlebug, wooden puzzles and blocks, a big teddy dog, new bath toys, a doll and pram and stuff from argos’s Tots town range. It seems like a cheaper alternative to elc happyland.

I second the hide and squeak eggs. I thought they looked proper shit when I saw them - dd got them for her 1st Xmas and still plays with them now age 2.5 x

No parent will ever thank you fur buying their child anything from VTech. The electronic voices really grate!

Wooden transporter, cars etc are lovely. We had a lovely wooden bus, with peg people passengers, but it was more than £20.

Hide and Sqeak eggs are great and have massive longevity - at 6 dd still sometimes uses them in her toy shop.

Aquadoodle is also a great idea. Non messy art!

Thanks. We got a toot toot bus for my nephew and a soft toy bunny for my niece. Wish I'd gone for the Hide and Squeak eggs now though!
