My daughter is 3 years old and loves drawing pictures, leapfrog offers the scribbler toy which would be wonderful for her to try, I know she will just love it heaps. It will be one of those toys that follows us every where :-) She enjoys educational and imaginary toys and leapfrog have the best range.

My son Alexander loves his leapfrog mobile phone, it sings to him and always captures his attention when he is crying about something. Its almost become his security blanket he is so attached to it! I love fisherprice as well, but think that new educational products like the leapfrog range are really great products too.

My daughters favorite toy from about 3 to about 5, was a toy called Dressing Jill or something like that. Basically was a wooden doll cut out with a lid. You put all different kinds of fabric underneath and close the lid then the doll is now dressed. My daughter played with this for hours.

Hi! I too have always loved Fisher Price stuff, but wish it was made a bit better. I still have the odd FP toy from when I was little (I'm 33), that is as good as it was back then, but today's FP toys fade and break so quick. Realising now that I sound like a real nana... 'back in my day blah blah blah...' but it is sad.
My favorite purchase for my kids has been glide-to-ride bikes from playschool. Both my kids learnt to ride in a matter of weeks and have never had training wheels... now i encourage all of my friends to take off the pedals, let the child learn to balance first then everything else is easy. Good luck out there! :)

Hi
I too are very impressed with the Fisher Price and Little People toys, though they are a a little bit dear (you can get them in sales or on Trade Me) they are very strong and have many different activities for the children to learn. I am Grandparent looking after my Granddaughter, she is playing with a Fisher Price bus and people and a Fisher Price Record player that her father (32 now) and his two brothers played with both toys surviving their attention. I have also brought a couple of "Little People" toys one in Warehouse Sale and another on Trade Me, they are both good strong educational toys that are going to keep her and other Grandchildren entertained for a number of years.

Hi I agree with both paygirl and bayjour. I am a Grandmother looking after a Granddaughter, she is now playing with a Fisher Price Bus with eight little people in and a Fisher Price record player that my sons had (they are now aged 32 and 29). I have also brought a number of the Little people toys on Trade Me and have been really impressed with them as they have so manage different activities for her to do, to help her develop and are going to last over a number of years (ie 9mths to 5 yrs)
