I got my ds who is also 3 a Thomas the Tank Engine Pop-up Tent (from Amazon). £35 I think. He loves it.

A dress? They are very popular, I understand.

Marina Fri 01-Jul-05 11:44:29

Oh you beat me to it, aloha

not for a three year old -t he car?

HappyHuggy Sat 02-Jul-05 18:10:30

My ds was 3 a couple of months ago, we got him a sandpit which he loves and a small trampline -the novelties worn off that though.

We also got him play sissors, paper, colourings stuff and paints which he loves.

look ont eh ome apge list of recommendations

fishfinger Sat 02-Jul-05 18:11:45

yes duplo a ogood idea

tassis Sat 02-Jul-05 18:13:27

you talkin to me ff?

I admit to knowing nothing, ds is 2 and a bit and really really wants one. Do you reckon they're out of them by 3? Good to know.

emily, listen to ff and not me - I was just guessing based on a lovely 3yo nephew and a 2yo son!

starlover Sat 02-Jul-05 18:14:35

tassis.. i think a 3 yr old would still be fine in cosy coupe!

i know a 5 yr old who still plays with hers!

emmatmg Sat 02-Jul-05 18:19:23

Trains, trains, trains and then a few more trains if you ask me.

Any make, model, variety will do the trick.

tassis Sat 02-Jul-05 19:08:51

oooh starlover, thanks.

i'm seriously tempted...

Magscat Sat 02-Jul-05 19:17:41

Emily - Over the last year my ds (nearly 4) has enjoyed:
Paddling pool,
Building kits (nuts, bolts & bits that fit together to make boats/planes etc..- Brio & Ikea do them
Lego fire station
Small music keyboard thing
Videos & DVDs & Books
Dressing Up clothes (wizard, wolf)

HappyHuggy & Starlover - do you mean those small trampolines with a kind of 'handle' ? I was thinking about getting one for ds but he's prettty clumsy, I can imagine him falling off loads - how safe are they?

starlover Sat 02-Jul-05 19:24:05

i think they're pretty safe, especially if they're holding on.
they are quite low, so if you have it on grass they shouldn't really hurt themselves even if they do fall off

Magscat Sat 02-Jul-05 19:26:50

That's the problem - we do have a grass patch out the back but it's really pocket hankerchief size & a bit of a slope.
Out the front of the house is concrete. I guess the back garden would be ok if we put the trampoline right in the middle of the lawn!
Don't have much storage space either so maybe we'll think of something else. (He says he wants a guitar!)

PeachyClair Sat 02-Jul-05 19:45:16

We have three lads and there isn't much they don't already have, so for ds3's birthday, he is getting the JoJingles cd and doll from their website (you dont have to go to the classes).

otherwise I would say yes trains BUT ours became a health hazard, or bricks are a winner every time, as are craft kits. Blackboard easels are handy too.

Ride-on tractor?

jambo1707 Sat 02-Jul-05 20:50:46
