What should I get my 2 1/2 year old for Christmas?

All he really plays with are cars. And he has tons of those. And he likes to color but he has enough of all that too.

  • I'd wait a few more months before you decide, they change interests so quickly at that age

  • I agree..I was going to say the same thing. Wait until its a little closer to christmas to see what he is interested in at that point.

  • A Train Table. They come with the tracks & trains included. I bought one for my DS 2nd B-Day and he plays with it every day & even drives his cars on it. He's a car fanatic too. His is made by KidKraft. Very nicely made and looks cute too.

  • I agree with anon....my nephew has a thomas the train table and he loves that thing. He plays with it constantly. It is a little large, but if you have a little bit of space for it (check before you buy it) then it would be a great investment that WILL be used! xo

  • I would wait i little bit longer too. But still start putting up money for Christmas. But the train table is a good idea, a black and Decker work bench, or a cars ball pit..

  • I agree, wait a couple more months. He may change tastes or you may find something in the store that you didn't see there before.

    I'm getting my son his very first bike for his birthday. (He'll be two)
    For Christmas I'm not sure what I'm getting him. Maybe an Easle for him to draw and color pictures on.

  • I think now is a good time to start thinking about Christmas! I start around now, so that each child can have a large Christmas without denting the pocketbook! And maybe try crafty things for his age group[!
