Nice little gift for a 2 year old?

  1. Boy or girl?
    My niece is just over 18 months and loves jigsaw type things and Peppa Pig! Supermarkets tend to do fun cheap bits for toddlers :)

    what sex? How about a nice book with pop up pictures? or you can get some that come with cuddly versions of the characters.

    Hahaha! Thanks you lot! It's a boy, and he's from a very farming, rural family. Lots of beautiful wooden toys and stuff. I can't afford things like that, but sure I can find something. Pop up book a good idea - thanks!
     
  7. A copy of the hungry Caterpillar. My son loved it even at that age.

    Prof do you have a 'The Works' store near you? sells books and gift type things. They have been doing Owl Babies and Can't you sleep little bear for £1.99 each, lovely books and they come with a dvd of the story using the original illustrations. Real bargain!
     
  9. Go to the ELC and buy something with a 2 on it
     
  10. Ooh, thanks for that one Crystal, I'm nickin it for y baby boy.

    A great choice and a very popular one at that, but I reckon most 2 year olds already own it. I would go for something less well known, just to be on the safe side.
     
  12. Sainsbury's has great puzzles. Need ones with 2, 3 or 4 pieces for that age child, unless they are well used to puzzles.

    I agree! My son (20 months old) has about 3 copies of the Very Hungry Caterpillar. He really loves cars though, so maybe a toy car? Or some Duplo?

    Thanks for the lovely ideas. I had a wander round town this morning but could not find a copy of the Very Hungry Caterpillar - I loved that book as a child!
    Eventually (after a shock when I checked my account) I settled for some bath crayons, an Easter egg and one of those bubble sets that blows giant bubbles. Not the most thrilling, but better than nothing!
     
  15. Bath crayons were always a big hit with ours [​IMG]

    That sounds ideal, PD. Just the job! My lot would be thrilled with the bath crayons in particular.
