Gifts for my 2 Year Old – Blogmas Day 20

Christmas this year should be a lot more fun now that Heath is old enough to open his presents. Last year it was great for Annabelle as she could help with the unwrapping but I’m sure she will be excited to see what he has been given and hopefully share their gifts with each other. As he is two years old, I thought he would like this selection of toys.


We wanted to buy Heath a Micro Scooter for his second birthday but I saw some toys on offer in Sainsbury’s and thought I would get those first while they were discounted. Annabelle has the pink Mini Micro Scooter and Heath enjoys riding around on hers while she is at school so it is the perfect gift for his age.

He also needs a helmet so I chose this orange one, also by Micro Scooter. I haven’t purchased this yet as I am debating getting the blue option in case Annabelle can wear it to. I might need to measure their heads to see if they can both wear the same size.

If you have read my Blogmas Day 1 post you will know that Heath is a train enthusiast. I think he would be ecstatic about the Thomas Take ‘n’ Play set with 10 die cast characters. He has Thomas and Percy already but I know he will love Captain and Diesel too.

Andy found this cute Mickey Mouse Duplo Train for Heath in Boots. He received Thomas the Tank engine Lego for Christmas last year so I am planning on combining the two to make a huge set. The great thing about this Mickey parade is that it will appeal to Annabelle too.

Last but not least, whenever Annabelle draws, Heath likes to copy. He will be able to colour in this Crayola Finding Dory book happily without marking our dining table in the process with this Mess Free Colour Wonder. Like the last gift I mentioned, it is also suitable for Annabelle and they can swap packs to their hearts content.

If you missed it, yesterday’s Blogmas post was about my Gift Ideas for Annabelle, my 5 year old daughter. I hope you like it and are enjoying my posts in this run up to Christmas. See you tomorrow for Day 21! Bx

Gift List for my 5 Year Old – Blogmas Day 19

For Christmas this year, Annabelle, my 5 year old daughter has not requested many gifts. The only thing she has asked for is a Cinderella carriage (below), which my mother-in-law is buying for her.


I have therefore had to think of a few things Annabelle has asked for in the past and see if she is still interested in them.


Annabelle loves Miraculous Ladybug and Cat Noir after watching them on the television in Turkey during the Summer holidays. These action figures are £35 for both and perfect for her to play with on their own or with her Disney Princess Dolls.

She is still interested in Frozen and all things Elsa and Anna, so I thought these Snap Ins would be great for role-play games. She enjoys toys with dinky little parts that develop her fine motor skills like Lego especially if it is for suitable for 5 year olds. Thankfully, Heath is now old enough not to put the pieces in his mouth!

Andy and I have a lot of fun playing games at the weekend with Annabelle and wanted a present to help her speech and language. She was seeing a therapist to help slow her talking down and to encourage clearer pronunciation. A game I thought would be great to compliment this is Guess Who? I loved playing this as a child and it is the perfect game to play over the Christmas holidays.

Finally, Annabelle always needs to have a bit of quiet time throughout the day to exercise her creative and crafty bones. She loves Crayola Colour Wonder and hasn’t yet done the Disney Princess Mess Free Colouring Book.

Tomorrow, I will post my Gift Ideas for Heath, my 2 year old son. Let me know what your 5 year old would like for Christmas this year in the comments below. Bx
