For my daughter the best things we have got for her this year have been her Minnie Mouse Chair which she loves and uses daily. Also The Sit n Spin makes for lots of fun times and she adores her little people castle and airplane and they keep her busy. She has a minnie Mouse ride on that is fantastic as well. Puzzles give her lots of great activity and she loves her baby dolls and stroller. Outdoor items are great for this active age group, My daughter really uses her frozen teether as she has been getting he molars. Having bouncy balls and soccer balls are a great idea if you have a yard for kids to play in or take to park often. My daughter is wild so much fun a climber a tom boy loves to be in dirt mud and rocks and is very curious and into everything. Durability is a must for anything I get for her. She enjoys playing Doctor with her Doc Mc Stuffins medical bag she loves listening to everyones heartbeats and playing Doctor. Its amazing how different your kids can be what my son enjoyed and needed is not anywhere near what works for my daughter. Although the sitting chair my son just had an Elmo Talking sitting chair. That was a huge hit with him and he kept that chair for years.
