  • Turn him loose in Toys R'Us and the top 3 toys that he just doesn't want to let go of, get them for him.

  • stocking stuffers were a dvd set of thomas and friends movies, candy, crayons and coloring book. main gift was a thomas and friends magnetic playset w/ extra tracks and extra trains. I have no idea what to do for him this year

  • Big sturdy cars or trucks are great at that age. The Little People Garage is also a good bet. Duplo blocks are great too, and they can be used for years. An tent you can set up indoors is a lot of fun. The Animal Planet Dinosaur sets at Toys R Us are pretty cool. Dress up hats like fireman helmets, construction helmets, etc. are nice. Books, puzzles, coloring books and crayons, and play dough are fun, but may require more supervision than some other things. A nice fuzzy blanket with characters on it could be useful. If he doesn't already have a tricycle or a scooter, those might be nice if you live somewhere with a mild winter (otherwise he won't get to use them until spring, and that wouldn't be fun)!

  • I forgot to mention. I found the Thomas playset w/ extra trains at a consignment sale (extra tracks I bought new at walmart)...only $10!! That saved me a ton of money. What does your son like?

  • he is very active... i think he is starting to like the cause and effect toys... and he is starting to watch shows on tv some you can tell he likes more than others... he watches Thomas the train... and anything that involves dancing and singing... wonderpets and seseame street... we are thinking about a bike and or scooter

  • My son LOVES Thomas the Train... he's getting that... along with some books and clothes.
    My son also has a balance bike, he LOVES it. It's a 2 wheel bike with no pedals..

  • I think a bike or scooter could be an awesome idea. My son will be 3 in January and he LOVES his bike :)

  • How about a tricycle or a powered ride-on car/ATV? The balance bikes are great too. My nephew had one when he was 2 and loved it. I'm hoping to get one for my son when he turns 3 in Jan.
