A xylophone.
A talking bear ( that  I simply can not remember the name of).

Wooden cars on a little wooden track that zooms down ( very hard to explain)

And a water gun, not sure if she will be able to work it but her two older sisters also are getting one so they will be able to help.

DD will be 2 a month after xmas, and Santa is getting her a Disney Princess toddler doll (she loves dolls), an Abby Cadabby tea set, & a box of drawing stuff - colouring book, crayons & paper.

Her Aunties are getting her some Disney Princess little people zoo duplo.

She is then getting a joint prezzie with DD1, DS & DD3 from us, my parents & IL - The big fort/swingset from Costco (If we can get one, they currently have none in stock, despite having 12 a few days ago)

I also have the Fisher Price Loving Family dream dollhouse on layby for her 2nd birthday.

I'm limiting the amount they get, as we have so much crap that doesn't get played with. I've only just started xmas shopping as I know now what she is in to.
