My DS's little friend was quite happily growing up in a Barbie free household, she had her 4th birthday party last week................Guess what the Barbie count is up to 6 !!!!!!!

brio train track - but the tesco version

Brio train track is a great idea, but I forgot to say he has an older brother so they've already got loads of duplo, train track, cars, books etc,
Is barbie still so popular, my dd still has hers and she's 10 now.

ELC happy land stuff (depends how much you want to spend)
art/craft stuff (magic noodles from baker ross are great fun)

Leap pads! Hi. I'm thinking of buying a leap pad for my four year old (will start school in september). I'd appreciate any thoughts on whether kids actually use them/what you think of them/best and worst books/do they do accurate phonic sounds for the letters?

one of these for the wee boy. They are soooooooooo cool, ds is getting the smaller one for his 1st bday but I've already been playing on it all week. It's sooooooooooooooooo much fun and strong enough for a mediumish adult as well.

LGJ. You know how bacteria looks under a microscope when it multiplies? Barbie does that in our house, I'm sure. Your ds's little friend was lucky to reach four before a Barbie invasion took hold
