My lovely friend has a 5 yr old DS and a 3 yr old DD and I have no idea what to buy them for Christmas.

For their birthdays this year I got them clothes but I think would like to buy them toys or games for Christmas.

DP and I were looking at stuff today and the games were for 4+ or 5+ so I'm thinking not to get those for DS because then when he wanted to play with them DD wouldn't be able to join in?

Does anyone have any ideas for seperate presents for them or even a joint present they can play with together? I normally spend about £20 ish on each.

Lego set for the 5 year old boy?

Peppa pig toys for the girl?

Or dressing up outfits for each? Saw nice ones in Marks today, or the Disney shop?

There's a fab Julia Donaldson CD set in ELC for £20 and you could get similar Roald Dahl set for the 5 year old?

Peppa Pig/Dora the Explorer DVDs?

DD (3) loves her Color Doodle Etch a Sketch

Playmobil is always popular -you could buy a set they'd both be interested in

My 5yo DS loves this grabber hand. ToysRUs do a motorised version.

ooh I love the puppet theatre thanks - that's a definite possibility

I also like the dressing up outfit ideas, and the etch a sketch etc

off to google to see what playmobil is - I have a feeling I may have bought her DS that in the

Thanks for responses
