So many of you family members far away, well all of you are far away but a few have already asked. Here are some thoughts for the kiddos for Christmas gifts.
If you buy or order or intend to buy any of these specific items PLEASE let me know ASAP so I can let everyone else know too 🙂
Clothes – Shirts/Sweaters Size 5
Pants/Skirts Size 4 (MUST have the adjustable waistband)
Here are some things SHE picked out that she would like to wear:
A+Look from Children’s Place
What a Jewel from Children’s Place
Stripe it Up from Crazy8.com
Fashion Walk from Crazy8.com
She can NOT wear skirts to school on Wednesdays due to PE and she needs to wear shoes she can run/play in everyday at school so nothing too fancy. Other than that she’s a fashionista so go crazy 🙂
We’re planning on purchasing a Leap Pad for her birthday but we’re just going to get 1 game (most likely Tangled or the Princess game) at this time so any other games would be good ideas. The Leap Pad takes the Leapster Explorer Games (we have none left because they were all in her case when our car got broken into last spring). She LOVED the Leapster and I think this will be even better as she can download books to read on this similar to an iPad.
We’re also planning on getting her an Our Generation Doll (in place of a $100 American Girl Doll). They are the same size and are sold at Target for MUCH cheaper plus you can buy more clothes at Target OR we can start buying patterns and making clothes (this is something I want to start doing with her once we get settled into a house). She gets the American Girl Doll magazine/catalog and really wants to have one just like her so I’m on the lookout for a doll with brown hair AND brown eyes “none of her other dolls are just like her!”
Here are some other items she’s shown interest in:
Books: Any book that is Scholastic Reader Level 1 or any kind of Reader 1 book, even some Reader 2 books. She’s becoming more and more interested in reading by herself.
Barbies: Specifically the Hairstyle Barbie…don’t know why but she’s asked for this one specifically a few times now.
Board Games: I’ve just listed a few that I think she would enjoy at this stage in life; Monopoly Junior, Twister, Old Maid , and Go Fish.
Clothes: Size 18 month or 24 month/2T but he’s not quite into the 2T’s yet but will be sooner rather than later.
Shoes: Size 5 or 6 toddler boys
Here are some thing I found that I like:
Little Man Big Fun
Argyle All the Way
Check Him Out
The Dinosaur Train Book – this is one of his favorite shows and he got an actual train set for his birthday so I know he would love to read it too.
How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight – we have How Do Dinosaurs Go to School and he likes to look at it often.
How Do Dinosaurs Eat their Food – another good Dino book
How Do Dinosaurs Count to Ten – I think you’re getting that he likes Dino books 😉
Richard Scarry’s Best Book Ever – another great one
One more thing…Zoobooks would be a great option too! – http://www.zoobooks.com/
Like I mentioned before we purchased the smaller of the available Dinosaur Train sets for his birthday and it was a hit so ANYTHING Dinosaur Train would be great!
We did get him the Interactive character Buddy but there are LOTS of others out there that are available.
Animals, here’s a bucket of Jungle Animals that would be a great addition to our toy collection.
The Land Before Time (ORIGINAL)
Kung Fu Panda 2
