We love

Physical Play - building blocks, duplo, ride along cars, slide, seesaw, push and pull toys, ball pool,

Emotional play - dressing up, dolls and prams, kitchen and utensils, treasure basket,

Intellectual Play - happy land, farm, cars, any type of books usually ones with repetition or songs (love the busy baby series)

Language - telephones, puppets,

Social - click clack catterpillar and ball run.

Thanks Dynamicnannny I have almost everything that you mention so that's a relief.

I haven't heard of the busy baby series before so will look into them thanks. smile

My 19mo loves books of In the Night Garden...she likes pulling them apart too.
Loves ride alongs and singing. Her favourite toys are my Ds's toy cars and his old Thomas the Tank trains. She also likes watching the TV which she's had to do a lot of since we've had a field mouse running around angry. Can't let her on the floor for fear of mouse pee/poo(which would go straight in her mouth), but normally, she's playing with all kinds of toys...and boxes hmm
