Honestly we have so many toys at this point in time, that I ask for events rather then toys at this point in time. Things like a pass to the Children's Museum, or even a day alone with a Grandparent doing something fun with them. We don't need anymore toys so an event, or something disposable is best. Arts and craft supplies also work since they are consumables.



Thank you for the sig Mary

Age 2 was when my boys got REALLY into Play-Doh (with careful supervision of course). Like Sarah suggested, we have also asked for family members to contribute to swimming lessons and a museum pass.

David is outgrowing most of his toys and since all the family lives out of town and only sees him every few mos they like to buy him stuff.i thought about my dad getting or at least helping w the cost of a playset as we cannot afford to buy one as they are very expensive. My dad doesnt mind buying something like that but i am going to ask him see what he says.

We are getting Maxim a toy kitchen for Christmas and he'll be 19 months. For his 2nd birthday I think I'm going to get him an art easel. He'll probably be getting a Radio Flyer Tricycle from my parents. Playdoh, art supplies, play musical instruments. Good luck

William will be two in less than two weeks and the only thing he is getting is a Thomas set. My dad built him a train table, so he will get that as well. We have told people not to buy him anything as he doesn't know the difference, but since I know that doesn't usually fly books are always good even if he isn't really into them now. A child can never have too many books :) Both sets of grandparents usually give him a savings bond or put something into the college fund. I know those aren't fun presents, but so worth it in the long run.

Sorry that's not much help, but that's what we are doing.

We are doing a balance bike for Teddy's second birthday... if I can hold out that long LOL. Otherwise things like playkitchens, train sets, art station (table, crayons, play-dough, etc) are all some things which pop into my head.

I was going to suggest a savings bond as well. Selin got some for her birthday and christening and it was much appreciated.

Now that I'm a mom myself, when I have to buy a gift for a kid I buy clothes (one size up) and books because kids usually always need clothes and like Elyse said, you can never have too many books!

I found quite a few things. Water table, tricycle. Thomas train set, etch sketch and some learning things for his tag junior thing my mom got last yr. He may be old enough now. Still looking for a few more things. I want actual toys the family can get him as he has outgrown most of them plus they want things he can open. He already has several savings bonds but they want things he will open and play with.
