What are you getting your 3yo for Christmas?

DD is 3.6 and I'm not sure what to get her for Christmas. I feel like having a good old clear out and starting again.

She's got a balance bike and a scooter and likes playing with little figures and doing imaginitve play so I was thinking Happyland/playmobil stuff?They are bloody expensive so might have a look on eBay for some bundles.

DS is 16m but he will be easy to buy for as he loves vehicles and anything that moves.
Any ideas?

I have a 3 yr old DS and probably am getting him a balance bike for Christmas.
For your DS, if you don't already have this, I think the sound and light fire engine from ELC is a good buy - my DS received it as a present when he was 1 or 2 and still plays with it now at least 2 days a week. He's also got a moving sound and light train from fisher price, a sound and light helicopter with passengers and millions of cars (as you'll probably have guessed, my DS too is an automobile/airplane lover) smile

Dd1 is 3.5 yo and we have got her one of these She is always trying to read books and asking us what the words say. I have got the Junior version for my 20mo dd.

We also have a scooter each for them, books, games for dd1 and a doll each. I also found in Wilkinsons some crafty kits for 3yos. I got her a magnet maker for £4!!

I am going to have a massive toy clear out very soon because they have so much that is too young for them now. My babies are growing up sad

I am getting dd anything dog related as she is obsessed. However i would get her a tag reading pen / book (currently half price at elc) as she loves her big sis and uses it all the time.

Damn, thats cheap!! Mine turned up last week and it looks brilliant! Just waiting for the junior version! I love that they can have the same thing but not IYSWIM!!!

Whatever I can afford grin But possibly a balance bike as I think he'd like one now, is 3 and a few months atm.
