Toddler Gift Guide

2ndBirthdayGiftGuide1
Rosalie’s 2nd Birthday is in 4 days time. Ahhhhhh! As if I nearly have a 2 year old. There is nothing like a growing child to make you wonder where your life is going…
I thought I would put together a little gift guide of 2nd Birthday presents suitable for toddlers.
Crafty things 
2ndBirthdayGiftGuide1

Play-Doh

Rosalie loves play dough! I didn’t want to choose anything too complicated so I settled on this squeezy turtle. I have also bought her some alphabet cutters to use with the play-doh she has already.
I used to love stationary as a child and it looks like my 2 year old is no different. At least once a day Rosalie will ask to do ‘drawing’. We got her this new set of pens to do it with.

Easel

Again, the crafting. Rosalie has only just started to paint but loves it. Even if she does make a mess and get her arms all in it. With an easel you wouldn’t have to worry about that. Rosalie already has a chalk board on the wall so we won’t be buying this but I still think it is a great toddler gift and I am quite tempted…

Fuzzy-Felt

Who remembers fuzzy felt? I used to love this stuff and I am hoping Rosalie will too. Any craft activity that doesn’t make mess sounds good to me. Now if I could just persuade her that fuzzy felt is all a girl needs.

For the garden 

Rosalie’s Auntie Lucy has bought Rosalie a trampoline for her Birthday. Rosalie loves bouncing and I cant wait to see her little face when she wakes up to it on her birthday morning.
Rosalie’s big present from mummy and daddy. Complete with basket, tassles and a horn. Just what every toddler needs!
I do love a wendy house. They are just so cute. Toddlers love opening and shutting all the doors and windows. Rosalie has a wendy house at nick’s mum’s house and absolutely loves it.

Hop Along Toy

Toddlers love any kind of ride on toy. You can get this hoppalong toy in so many different designs. Rosalie has this rabbit and a black and white cow.
For the home

 

I wanted to get a little shelf for Rosalie’s bedroom so she could display all her treasures. This melon shelf fits the bill perfectly.

Duvet Cover

Rosalie is in a cot bed and I have been looking high and low for a cool new duvet cover for her. I couldn’t find one small enough so I haven’t bought one yet. I like this care bear one but the smallest they do in this is single size.
I have wanted to get Rosalie this little table and chairs forever. I think it will be great for her to do her drawing on and it will look stylish in the living room too!
Rosalie loves opening and closing bags and case’s. She likes to put her little toys in there and then carries them around. I picked up this lemon case for Rosalie’s bedroom.
Toys

 

 

Care Bear

Rosalie enjoys watching care bears on the television and often asks to have it on. I wanted to get her a care bear soft toy. She also loves Yellow so it had to be funshine bear.
Ok, so this toy may be more for mummy than Rosalie but how cool is this? A little fairy plant pot, complete with fairy house and lily pad moat. I plan to plant this up with lots of gorgeous flowers too.
A few weeks ago on our recent trip to London Rosalie was enthralled by the little hamster toy in Hamleys. She spent ages chasing it round and round. I couldn’t resist getting her one of her very own.
Nanny Tracy has bought Rosalie this epic dolls house for her birthday. Now I just need to find room for it.
 
Imagination and role play 
 
Rosalie likes to play Role play. She loves playing mummy and taking care of her baby and making dinner in her kitchen. I have bought her a nurses outfit to see if she likes dressing up too.

Beauty Case

Rosalie always watches me put on my ‘hake up’ as she says, she also likes to be involved. I have bought her her very own wooden beauty case complete with make up and even a hair dryer. I’m hoping she’ll stay away from mine then!
A few props to help when introducing this new imaginative game. I’m hoping she’ll like playing nurses as much as she likes playing her other role play games.

I have bought Rosalie a yellow tutu for her to wear to ballet lessons as well as for dress up. She is going to be the cutest little sunshine!I hope this helps you in your search for toddler gifts.

    Aww, what a lovely gift guide! How is Rosalie two years old aready? Time really does fly! Play doh, fuzzy felt and endless pens went down a treat on my little girls birthday. She's now constantly asking for one of those fairy gardens as the advert is always on tv, haha! x

    Absolutely gorgeous list! As for small duvet covers, try Vertbaudet, I am pretty sure they do toddler bed sizes.xx
