Christmas shopping for a toddler?


Hi,

We have finally started our xmas shopping, but I have absolute no idea what to get my son who will be just short of 2. His nanny has bought a kitchen between both of my children so that rules that out...

I just can figure what to get him at all. I have bought him a balance bike but that is it so far...

So what are you buying your children?

Stalking as I have no idea what to get my LO...he'll be almost 2 too.

My mum has bought him lots and has left me with nothing! I've only got a Mr Potato Head, some books and a bounce and spin frog thing.

It looks like our DS's were born on the same day! My mum even has a few bits put away for his birthday!

Aaah it looks like they were!!! :-) I know that is what my mum and mil are like too... Love them to bits.. but seriously, let me buy my child some treats!!! lol!!

I think it is a really funny age. He seems to like firemen at the moment so the only thing I really have in mind is a costume for that... and thats it!! ;-/ I have something similar to the bounce and spin zebra, and ds loves it so good choice! I want to get some big boxed things, as his little sister has a few great big toys (they tend to be big and bulky when they are only little arent they).

Should have a look at Santas Grotto forum on here. Get some really good ideas from that section

I'm a bit stuck too.
I buy lots of bits as and when I see them cheap to put away, but I've realised most of the stuff will be for next Christmas when he's coming up 3.....not a lot for this Xmas :-/

My lo will almost be 2, his birthday is the 29th, so between his birthday and christmas and not just from me, his main presents are a toy kitchen, a toy tool/work bench, a scooter and a balance bike. Then he's getting lots of role play, small world, imagination type things, like different animal sets, jungle, farm, polar etc, dressing up clothes, musical instruments, lots of crafty things, train track, an extension to his car garage, then books jigsaws etc. Bevause his birthday is so close to christmas, and while hes young enough not to fully understand I like to buy for the year, then ill put some stuff away and get it out throughout th e year for him.

My LOs got a kitchen last year from their grandparents as well. I then got them little bits and pieces to go with it - good quality ones, not the rubbish plastic-y bits you can find.

I really really recommend the Melissa & Doug pizza set and the fruit and veg box. They get constant use and are the best part of their kitchen. There were more items that I wanted like this, but they had too much and I didn't want to spoil them!

Have links if you want!

Damnnn I am now on a Melissa & Doug christmas hunt :/
