My DD is 15 months. She loves books - even with no pics she will sit and jabber away "reading" them. She loves her baby dolls and stuffed animals. Likes to push them around in a little wood doll stroller, pretend to feed them anything or sit them in her chair or swing.
For her birthday I made her some refrigerator magnets - just simple wood shapes that you can buy in any craft store that I painted in different plain colors and added sticky magnetic strips to the back of htem. She loves to take them off and on the fridge and they are also great for teaching colours/shapes.
Also I got some brightly coloured fleece and made her dress up clothing since she kept taking a pair of underwear and puttting them over her head.
So just simple cape with a big hole for the head, a little hat or purse type thing - you can get creative with fringing/knotting edges etc. Plus made big fleece bracelets etc. She has a blast with those and 2 little play silks.
She also likes her wood farm animals so for Christmas I'm going to make her a wood barn (could be humorous as I've never made anythign like that b4) and felt board playmat w fields, stream, roads, pond etc and am getting her a little wood tractor.
She loves play food too so will make her some felt food and already have put away some little metal/wood cooking stuff. Also found a great little $29 solid wood stove/sink set - sort of a tabletop version. I don't want a big one due to price, and space. Plus she likes to stand on something and help in the real kitchen. That's actually one of her fave play things - touch all the veggies and taste them, smell them, put them in the pot etc
