  • playdough, crayons, paints! Those are big hits with my DD (and if you get the no-mess paints, its a great way to distract the LO while making dinner). Little boys LOVE trucks and I find most kids love balls. A play kitchen with food stuffs is also fun!

  • There are some great toys out there these days that are fun and educational. There are little laptops with simple color and shape learning. There are ABC interactive toys. I always believe that when they hit a certain age (usually around 6-7 months) the toys you buy them should be more educational. Especially now that your daughter is over a year. She's at the prime for teaching her letters, numbers, colors, and shapes. They retain soo much information right now that getting a head start on that stuff now will benefit them greatly when they're starting school. Walmart has a great selection of interactive, fun, and educational toys that any kid would love.

  • my son will be 20 m/o this xmas. main presents: radio flyer pathfinder wagon, see-and-say toy
    stocking stuffers: a thomas and friends dvd set and a puzzle. I might also get him some crayons and coloring book. I'd like to get him a musical toothbrush but i can't find them anywhere in town (I'd like to test it out in person instead of buy one online)

  • Here is what I got DS (16 months)
    -leapfrog clickstart
    -one of those old fashioned fisher price telephones at Target.
    -A pretend shaving kit
    -a remote control truck
    -books, puzzles

    Stocking stuffers are a hot chocolate tumbler from Starbucks, books, socks, m&m candy cane, playdough, slinky

    I spent about $70.00 total on him because I went on black friday but there are still lots of good deals out there. She wont really care whats under the wrapping paper so anything you already plan on buying her, make a present. :)

  • My son will be 17 months at Christmas... he's getting puzzles, books, a stacking toy and an Elmo Live Encore (his big gift) along with some things he could care less about... PJ's and shoes
    I'm pretty sure he's getting a play kitchen from his Grandma
