When ds was about 20m he started referring to his blankie as 'fwottie'. I checked many times with him, 'do you mean froggy?'but no, it is definitely fwottie. The blankie has a little elephant on it and he can say elephant so I can only conclude he's just created his own name for it. It makes me chuckle and I'd love to hear your other random toddler names for stuff.

Katie Morag is always Katie Moran.
Singing the theme tune to RastaMouse we all have to 'giddy up' for the Easy Crew and Puff the Magic Dragon lives 'Hide and Seek'

DD (2) points to the light switch & says "yellow sparkles" when she wants the light on grin.

Another one for meyulk (milk) here.


Looloo (toilet)
Ooflute (elephant - now grown out of, sadly. No, Mummy, it's an elephant.)
A piggy front - when I'm carrying DD frontwards, obvs.
Upside up - as opposed to upside down
M'seum (museum)
"it's only retend"
Wiggly worms for noodles, which she always asks for loudly at the Thai blush

Loads more I can't think of, but current favourite: Naner flop (banana skin) grin

Another 'Farmer Christmas' for my nearly 4 year old
The remote control is just the 'mote'
Fireman Sam is 'fire sam' probably cause it's a fire engine or fire station.

My brother still says renember instead of remember. I used to call an umberella an olyolyar or something like that. Not sure how it would be spelt.

When I was little (about 3) my Dad was in the bath with me & I pointed to & asked, "Daddy, is that your Cooking Doodle?"

My little girl is still too tiny for talking (just turned 1 this week) but I'm looking forward to the funny names for things so much! My parents still use the words I used when I was little:

Cardideen - cardigan
Raderee - radiator
Ak - anorak
Furnished - finished

DD1 used to call apricots "cot cots."

DD2 couldn't say DD1's name very well - it's Maddie - so for some reason from an early age called her "Babboo." We have no idea why, but we liked it.

newmum001 Wed 04-Dec-13 16:57:57

When dd was 1 she called water "dordy" also calls her nose a "snitch" we all use that one now including my mum and sister. None of us ever have an itch nose we all have itchy snitches. I wish I'd written them down there were so many funny ones.

HaveToWearHeels Wed 04-Dec-13 17:02:14

Dinner gloves = oven mits
Flingo = flamingo
ostahorse = Obsticle course

DD decided her name was Jidgy.

She used to go up to other little kids and announce 'I Jidgy'. We still call her Jidge sometimes (she's nearly 11)

Love these grin

In our house we have poo-cackies for fact DS1 can say pancakes now but the word has stuck with us.
Also for land rover we have a few extra v's added in making it a land rovovover!
Oh and a wee rabbit night light is named Siggle idea why but it is very cute wink
Am trying to remember to write them all down before we forget them forever sad

highlandbird Wed 04-Dec-13 18:58:01

Keep remembering more!

When I'm feeding DS2 boobies have become beeboos, that one has stuck forever now I think!!

Kiwiinkits Thu 05-Dec-13 21:50:05

My Dd has called trampolines "trampadalines" since she was 2. So cute.

Kiwiinkits Thu 05-Dec-13 21:50:44

We have:

'Chumps' for chalks
'Giggles' for crayons
'Nannys' for raisins
'Beebees' for tv
'Songs' for guitar.

I think giggles and nannys may stick smile.

I know this is an old thread, but it made me smile smile

DS, 2, calls his vitamins drops "hopes wides" (i.e open wide).

funnylittlekaty Fri 27-Feb-15 23:33:32

Squirrel was guru
Cat = tac
Vanilla = valliner
Bra = dat boob fing.

Charming. Only "boobfing" remains how he's a very grown up boy of nearly 4.

funnylittlekaty Fri 27-Feb-15 23:34:04
