Anyone want to brainstorm some good toddler gifts with me? I'm having a really hard time figuring out what to get my daughter for Christmas. She's 2.5 now, and barely plays with toys. When she does, she uses them in unpredictable ways, so it's tough to say what toys will or will not be hits. She will play with her babies, but I think she's happier making beds for them with towels and blankets than if she had baby doll accessories. She doesn't play with her trains. She occasionally plays with her musical instruments, but has a lot and doesn't need more. Doesn't play with her puzzles. Occasionally plays with her blocks and her play kitchen stuff. There's just nothing that she's really into, except for books, kids' CDs, and playing in the sink. I plan to get her a new backpack and stuff it with art supplies and books, maybe get her an Ikea easel....then I'm stumped. What are you(pl.) planning for your toddler this year? What do they tend to play with?
Just some ideas I'm working with. Maybe a trainset.... We will see :-)
My mum has bought her a set of pretty sheets for her bed.
We're a bit the same, there's nothing which she absolutely adores to make present buying easy. It's only recently that she's started to dress her doll in her own clothes which gave me that idea.
