For me this age is so fun, all about pretend, playing together versus side by side and anything that keeps them entertained for longer chunks of time.
Kitchen & Accessories,
The girls have this cleaning set and love it.
I love this magnetic computer, real like without being an electronic and also a learning toy.
I have promised Ami a camera, like Zoe's.
Zoe has requested violin lessons so I may get her this set before she starts in the spring. We have this Piano Book for a few years now and they both have loved it. This microphone was a birthday gift 3 years ago, and A FAVORITE.
The girls have been in love with this Barbie Dream house (which is on sale!!!) but we just don't have the room for a second doll house, we have this wooden one which is so beautifully made (I love this tree house)
Dolls, we have wayyyy too many but these ones the girls have had for 3 years and sleep with them every night.
Barbies have ben huge for both girls. They love dressing them up.
The love their American Girl Dolls too, they have requested this salon set and this bath tub. Ami really wants the camper (ummmm where the heck would it go?!)
The girls fight over there one little stroller every day.
Other favorites of ours, magna tiles, this marble run and these bristle blocks.
This lego set we got them last year, may need another set because both girls build with them now.
Fort Builder - We have this and love it, people have mixed reviews but all I say you need assistance with the younger ones but it stays up and is a great parent kiddo activity. We purchased two sets.
When Zoe turned three we gifted her this dressing rack and hung 5 or 6 costumes. It is something they play with almost every day. This year I am getting them a couple that they have requested, this set of cute explorer costumes. love all of the Melissa & Doug costumes.
This Learning tower is something I wish I had had for the girls when we had the extra space, great great great for those of you that want to have your kids in the kitchen with you more.
I wish we had room for this incredible bouncy house a few friends keep for parties and for snow days too (it's easy to put away and take out, can we please get it O???!)
Another huge part of life and this age group is art, a space and tools for creating are so important. I love this easel, this paint set, ( love these paint cups that my cousin has for her kids and may get them this year) we have this set of brushes and aprons.
This paper is what I use for all painting. and these water colors are things we use almost every other day. I plan on giving a tour of our little "work station" for the girls but it may actually not happen until the New Year!
This art in a box set is just perfection for someone with limited space.
We have this set, great for keeping at a grandparents or even traveling or to start up your crafting supply.
Let's talk puzzles. We are a puzzle and game family (games we love here!)
Hopefully these help! Trying to only share what we have or have gifted (and sprinkle in a few things I plan on buying for the girls as well). Living in a much smaller space means a lot more specific gifting and we will need to store or donate a ton of the toys too. What is high on your kids wish list?
