My 3.5 year old is driving me insane with her constant gibberish talk when she's playing with her toys etc. She speaks perfectly fine otherwise but does this annoying made up language when she plays. She's even started singing in gibberish.

Anyone else? Cause for concern? Shall I buy myself earplugs because it's so irritating?

Normal. She’s developing her understanding of language and this experimenting is part of that. My 3yo is the same, especially with gibeerish that rhymes.

She sounds imaginative. Lots of siblings have secret languages. Maybe she'd like to learn a proper foreign language?

We're trilingual at home although she only responds in English. Perhaps she's confused a little lol

Yep, mine does this. I try to see it as a positive (imagination, figuring out how language works) but it is annoying!

Sounds like she speaks 4 languages (quadrilingual?)
