    Paige will be 3 in january and we have absolutely no idea what to get her for Christmas!
    She wants a bike, so that will be her main present... but what on earth else can we get her? Shes not really into toys, other tha her teeny little figures (size of busy book people)and her rubbish dolls house (getting her a dolls house for her birthday). She spends hours playing with her figures and acting out scenes with them (doctors/waiting at the train station/making dinner/going to the toilet!!)

    Any ideas what to get her?

    She loves books, so suggestions for some good stories would be nice too :)
    She likes 'making' things... so any crafty ideas also welcome.

    Has she got a nice storage thing for her books? You could get her a nice little book box or something and fill it with new books. A little armchair for reading them in? As for suggestions there's been loads of book threads the past week or two on here and always look at the bargain thread for cheap amazon books and the book people. As for craft you could make her a big craft box full of paints, collage things etc and what about play doh sets and moon doh sets.

    Eta (this is why my sons list ends up so long as I always think of more!) an easel? Table top if you don have room for a big one think elc do one, and role play stuff like doctors kit, dressing up outfits so she can act out the things she does with her little figures herself.

    I think i will have to look at some playmobil! It seems very popular and right up her street. She does enjoy games and has asked for hungry hippos so maybe get a coupke of games we can all play (she already has elefun and pop up pirate)

    Thanks ladies, some fab ideas x

    On the making things side...Melissa and Doug do a few 'decorate your own' items, mirrors and jewellery boxes etc for girls. They go quite cheap on amazon at times :thumbup:
