Most used, by all my kids:
- kitchen utensils (such as turkey baster, measuring cups and spoons, etc.)
- couch cushions and chairs for forts, houses, towns, etc.
- laundry baskets
- blankets/sheets/pillow cases
- pretty rocks in a little jar, a basket of pine cones and a huge stick collection

My two year old has:
- a baby doll, cloth diapers, sling, stroller, playsilks for blankets
- lovely wooden kitchen set
- one seriously wicked imagination!

My older kids (12, 10, 7, 5) play with K'nex, Nerf guns and Yugioh cards.

We have a nice arts and crafts cabinet, a couple of puzzles, a pretty good selection of board games and a bunch of dress up/costumes.

We also have trains and tracks, wooden blocks, plastic character people, matchbox cars, parachute for floor play, dinosaurs, and a "midwife" bag - although these are used much less frequently than anything else.

DS1's favorites at age 3 are:

1. Train set
2. Car set (we have some Plan Toys city stuff)
3. Blocks
4. The Orchard Game, puzzles

DS2 (age 1.5) loves:

1. Train set.
2. Car set
3. Blocks
4. The Orchard game.

Ok, I didn't intend for those two lists to be the same... but I guess they mostly like the same stuff.

i think in our house (with a 27 month old dd) the list would include:

babydoll + accoutrements like clothes/bassinet/stroller
schleich animals
playkitchen + playfood
her own purse with wallet/keys/fake cellphone/random doo-dads she finds

but i agree with pps in that the list changes as they grow and develop new interests/skills. i am looking forward to the dollhouse stage
