Holiday shopping for a toddler

Well, I guess she’s not quite a toddler anymore, I mean she’ll be three in January.

When the ToysRUs big toy book came in the mail, we gave it to her to look through to try to gauge what she may be interested in having for Christmas and her birthday.

The big hit was the page that had a lot of pink stuff on it, as that happens to currently be her favorite color.  Her comment was, “I want allllll of this” – ALL of the items in the pink section.  Oye. LOL

I know for certain I’m going to get her a cardboard playhouse – the kind the kids can color themselves with markers, to replace the beat up carseat box she’s been using since we had to buy a new car seat after our accident back in April.  And, based on her reaction to her cousin’s doll house (a HUGE Dora doll house, to which she let out a very excited squeal at the site of it), we’ll probably get her some sort of doll house, too, along with maybe a barbie doll (just one to start, since its hair will likely be a matted mess before Spring), or some other small dolls to use in it.  I thought about maybe getting a play set for some of her baby dolls, but I may save that for next year.  Or maybe the doll house for next year… I haven’t quite decided yet.

I do know we need to go through her toy boxes and eliminate a bunch of old toys that she would probably care less if they were to disappear, to make room for the new stuff.

I also think I may want to get her some kind of art easle, since she likes to use the ones at school and at her grandmother’s house.

Decisions, decisions… *sigh*
