Moo's Birthday; a shopping list

When it comes to toys, Moo has them practically coming out of her ears. When you have so many relatives, it's impossible not to be inundated with toys and as a toddler, it's overwhelming. She's becoming increasingly difficult to shop for at Christmas and birthday. Last year the husband and I did both Paris and Florida so ended up buying her a lot that we couldn't get in the UK.

This years she's three (where did my baby go?) and so she's becoming a 'big girl'. NanNan has bought her some big girl trainers as she was due new shoes, Grandma and Grandpa have bought her a very grown-up charm bracelet and children's perfume for her to be like mummy...and we have got...nothing. Zilch. Nada.

It's going to get to crunch time, I know it...we'll have to think of something...in the mean time, I've been looking around and so far I've found these little odds and ends...



Top: Sofia the First wipe clean book £6 Disney Store. Middle; Beatrix Potter complete collection £24.80 Amazon. Bottom; Lego Duplo deluxe brick box £28 Amazom. Centre; Top and leggings set £28-34 Ted Baker at Debenhams. Right; Izzy plush £15 Disney store.

Any suggestions? Anyone?

Please?

Good things at this age as she will be starting preschool and all that is to start looking at phonics toys. Phonics are going to be a huge deal when she gets to school age, so introducing toys etc that are based on them are good. Leapfrog used to do two great toys (they live on our fridge) both a phonics for the alphabet and a word builder to help them blend the phonics sounds into their first three letter words, but I can't seem to find them on general sale here. Leapfrog as a brand are very good though. They have great developmental 'toys' aimed at preparing them for / backing up preschool and school.

Messy play sets like playdough and the likes are also really important for developing fine motor skills for holding pencils and writing. Though girls are far better at it than boys. First board games or card games are great at this age too, and something they will do in preschool as well.

I have no idea if this helps at all, but its an angle to consider.
