Hi, I am new on here. My name is Kim and I have a 20 month old daughter Clara Paige, born on Feb. 19. I also have 2 sons, ages 5 and 7. My question to you all is what are you getting your little ones for Christmas? I am having a hard time coming up with ideas. Would love to hear some fresh ideas!

We've thought about getting Lexi (2/2) the new kids digital camera from I think Fisher Price. It's durable and she LOVES our camera. I'm hoping if she has her own she'll leave ours alone. I'm a procrastinator though, so haven't actually bought it yet. I also got her some "Where's Waldo" type books for toddlers with Pooh, Piglet and Disney Princess. We're also getting her coloring stuff, as she loves to color.

She has both of those things, that’s why I’m stuck on what to get her. Her grandma and grandpa get her stuff all the time, even when she doesn’t need anything.

I am getting my son a ball pit which can be used indoors or outdoors. He is also getting a hand powered riding toy and a helmet of course. Slides are also good outside toys.

Hello every one, I’m new on here and was just reading everything. My little girl was born on the 3rd; she is also ahead of the other kids in her daycare. My husband and I are getting her the clipos from target; they also have them at Wal-Mart. She loves to build things and read all the time. She would rather sit down and read then play, but she can go outside then she is really in heaven. Anyone know of any good outside toys for the kids? They are in the in-between stage where they don’t have too much. She is also getting a kitchen, but from grandma and grandpa. I don’t know what else to get her. If anyone can help that would be great!!!!

I got my daughter a kitchen for Christmas...was very annoying to put together. Anyways im also getting her an easel cause she loves to draw and paint. Shes also getting some over-sized stuffed dogs (shes into puppies). My daughter is ahead of her age so we are getting toys that she can use for years and most parents dont get these items till they are older..but she loves them. Ride on vehicles seem to be a blast if your kids are into them..i was gonna get Hailie one but we live in an appartment with no where to ride it. It was hard.

My son who was born feb 28 is going to be getting a small wooden ride on wagon with trailer, a few play mobile vehicles, a baby doll thtat is all soft it has dark skin and is anatomicaly correct, a few small instuments. Most everything else is for both him and my daughter, music,books,some art supplies, some uniquly shaped blocks and thatis about it.

forsmallhands is a web site that has everyday around the house grown up stuff in little kid sizes we also got a few things there. some stuff they have.... cooking utensils to realy help in the kitchen. Like vegetable brushes, small pots and pans, small colanders,cleaning supplies, dust pans mops, crumb dusters for the table. child sized silverware and mugs and glasses. It's all very reasonably priced too. also Michaels has some green art supplies that seem very grown up but are non toxic. For example acrylic paints, oil pastels,& lap desk tops.

Tiffany we have a play tent already, it is great it can be transformed into a great little hideaway filled with books and toys, favorite blankies. my kids love to escape to it. I wish we had room for two tents because sometimes it get alittle crowed for two in there, but I guess it's good for them to learn to share.

Regarding the play kitchen we have one in our kitchen just far enough away from my cooking space so they don't get underfoot, but close enough for us to see each other.

One trick I learned was to not have too many toy kitchen and food items out at once. It's great to have a large variety but I only put 1/3 - 1/2 of it out usualy something I'm going to be useing too. otherwise it ends up everywhere and your steping on wooden strawberries while you're trying to stir the real pot of pasta. We dont' have alot of space so I found a real cute little wooden kitchen in Magic Cabin. It was a good price.

Good luck on all your gift hunting.

Heather- just a heads up, there is some really cute toy food and kitchen stuff at Target right now for the holidays priced around $10 for a big box! I couldn't believe how cheap it was cause usually that stuff is outrageous!

My daughter was also born on Feb 19th. For Christmas she is getting a tricycle (little one) she is obessed with one of her friends bike. And a kitchen....she wants to help stir EVERYTHING...so I am hoping it keeps her out of mine more :) And then just clothes and small stuff.

Great question & I'd love to hear other mom's ideas too! So far, my thoughts are a little "unusual" but are based on my son's interest... One idea is a small Dirt Devil vacuum (a real working, hand-held one) because every time I try to vacuum he commandeers it & I end up having to finish after he's asleep. He really loves it & gets excited whenever we bring it out, so I thought he might like one more sized for him. He's too smart for a "toy" one though, and only goes for the real stuff. My other thought is a small play "tent" or house. We got a new dishwasher last month and made the box into a little play house. He's loved it & played in it every day - loves knocking on the door & saying "come on in!" It's started falling apart so I thought to get something a bit more permanent, but don't have room for something real large. Last idea is a small wooden toy (I've seen them by the Melissa & Doug brand) that has holes & a small mallet that they can pound the balls through the holes, then they roll down a ramp & out of the toy. He played with that at a friends house & loved it. Happy shopping!
