  • Barbies? My 4 yr old DD loves Barbies and some of them are only $5-10.

  • i was gonna say barbies. also a gardening set, trowels and seeds, and flowerpots, a little girl bath set like a robe, slippers, bath toys, a bag forthem, comb and brush new, and little lotions and soap gels. a craft set liek at target or michaels crafts, also board games! Godo for skills and learning. A pink LEAPSTER game player with a cartridge my son loved his as a toddler. Special BOOKS -- never UNDERestimate the impact of a cool storybook or two, even about nature or with activities in it!

  • Barbies, arts & crafts and books. What I'm planning for my DD when she turns 3 next month.

  • Puzzles, crafts, games. Books and a bookshelf for her bedroom. If she likes pictures, you could get her a little digital camera and then go take pictures at a park or wherever. You could also get a scrapbook or photo album for her to put her pictures in. Does she like to cook and bake with you? If she does, a baking/cooking set for her would be apron, chef's hat, wooden spoon, big plastic bowl, measuring cups and a bag of chocolate chips....then you guys could make cookies(or whatever you like)together. You could give her a new movie and sleeping bag, and you guys could make a fort in the living room, watch the movie and camp out together. I think at that age, most kids just like spending time with their Mom more than anything else. ;)
