<p>Things that DS1 is waay into right now:</p>
<p>markers, paint, and paper</p>
<p>audio books (good for you too if you have to do long car trips or can't stand to tell one more story to an insatiable kid)</p>
<p>scooter</p>
<p>bubbles</p>
<p>If you are a "weapons-friendly household," my DH bought a set of <a href="http://img.shoppingnexus.com/products/sizzlin-cool-foam-sword-and-shield-value-pack-4-piece-blue-and-green.jpg" target="_blank">foam swords and shields</a> that he and DS1 have so much fun playing with.</p>

<p>my 3.5 year old loves duplos, legos and playmobil toys.  He really loves construction vehicles (cranes are his favorite).  He loves to dress up as a firefighter (in his rain jacket) and he also loves to push around big dump trucks with handles on the side.  He also loves ballet shoes, tutus and doing "cool dance moves".</p>

<p>We are getting a scooter (3 wheeled) one. A beanbag chair and some stocking stuffers. Dh is thinking about some child sized hockey sticks as well. We have really figured out that our kids don't play with toys. They like costumes and creative play and active play.  We are streamlining Christmas big time this year.</p>

<p>Ds has a couple of WOW toy cars, and we plan to add to his set of those, as they get a TON of play, and don't take batteries.  <a href="http://www.wowtoys.com/" target="_blank">http://www.wowtoys.com/</a><span style="display:none;"> </span>   I'd like to get him a boy doll of some kind, but am having trouble justifying the money for something that I doubt will be a hit- plus we already have some dolls in the house.</p>

<p>legos, both duplos and the small ones</p>
<p>mini trampoline</p>
