My imaginative nearly 4 year old is very nurturing with her toy animals, but just not interested in toy babies. That's fine with me, but 'babies' seem to be THE present to give a 4 yr - along with the assorted kit - in what is really quite a limited choice of possible Xmas gifts for girls..
(.. there were some truly terrifying things in Toys r us yesterday- Mutant 5ft talking Dora the Explorer anyone?)
She loves books, painting, arts/crafts, dress up, dough/dolls house/horses, cooking etc.
I'm getting her a small selection of things that cater to those interests - but what did you get your 'baby indifferent' 4 yr old DD for Xmas/Birthday that they absolutely loved?
My dd who is now 5 grew out of dolls by 4. We bought her a Barbie Laptop- sounds naff, but it has been really helpful in her learning to count and to spell words etc. as there are several games focusing on this. She still uses it a year on. Bought it from the internet - possibly an ebay shop.
iheart dusty- I totally agree. Still think boys are easier to buy fot than girls though - there's such a surplus of pink glittery plastic! Great suggestions and she has them all apart from the big rocking horse (she doesn't play with the sylvanians much- tho my mum is ever hopeful as she LOVES them)
I've bought DD a really lovely cooking set from verbaudet (sp?) and a cookbook but I'm really tempted by the rocking horse - bit too expensive though.
dusty- o lord the ebay rocking horses! I have been there and I will probably be back - but I'm shamefully drawn to '£500 quid bespoke zebras'- although I know my daughter would love a furry one so will try again
