I find boys so easy! So much easier than girls. DS (just turned 3, acts like a 2yo!) is getting heaps of "Cars" merchandise. Mainly a lot of the race cars from the 1st movie (got them off Ebay).
As they grow there is so much 'construction' type toys, for all ages (blocks, duplo, lego, mecano, etc). Girls are either barbies, babies or play kitchens!

Our DS is getting a heap of batman toys, a couple of books & some little tykes car thingy.

Dinosaur play set, dinosaur puzzle, dinosaur books. It's a bit of a theme.
He's also getting a few other things including a backpack for daycare (he starts next year) and a leapfrog phonics fridge magnet set. Oh and a fisher price little people wheelies race track.

More track and bits for the train set.
A water play thing from Kmart.
Some matchbox cars, other vehicles and a space shuttle.

My dS turns 2 on the 23rd so for his birthday, he's getting a scooter and for Christmas we are giving him a 'Wheelie Bug' to ride around the house. We will also give him a few cars & trucks.
The big kids are getting a trampoline so it will be considered his too!

My DS is 2.5 and is getting one of those wooden balance bikes, a boogy board, puzzle, a water play set and I'll grab a few cheap cars etc to throw in too.

Posted 13 December 2012 - 07:54 PM

I sound cheap compared but my 2yr old is the 3rd child.
I plan on wrapping up a beach ball we already have for him to unwrap. I may also wrap up some trains if I can find them from when we put them away while renovating. I'll pull out the wooden train set when we get back from holidays.
They don't really 'need' anything and DS has so much stuff as hand me downs from his siblings.

Agree with LucyE that they don't need much.
My 2 year old is getting a $25 sand and water table. I'm sure she'll get other presents from extended family.
We don't really buy toys but she seems to accumulate them anyway from friends/gifts/op shop trips so doesnt really need much. Also I don't know where we would put much more stuff....?

DS2 is 3 in feb. Hes getting a new bike helmet (because its needed) - we found an awesome "Evel Kineval" helmet which suits him to a tee. Also the octonauts octopod playset as he's obsessed with that show. That was an impulse buy when I found it for only $69 at Target after pining for them online where they've been $100+. A cheap mini-tool bench to go down beside daddy's, and a cheap kitchen playset for upstairs as he loves to roleplay. Plus a second-hand trampoline DH scored of a neighbour who is moving, which we got via the beer economy, but both boys will get use from that one.

Sand pit and some sand toys. Puzzle, book, spiderman electric toothbrush, new pjs, socks, Mr Potato Head.
Rellies are giving him a fireman costume and some duplo.
His brand new brother will be getting some old baby toys re-wrapped... Mostly so Mr 2 doesnt ask why Santa didnt bring the little one anything.
We have space issues too. I'm hoping santa brings me some storage solutions.
ETA, crap, I just remembered the Aldi toy kitchen in the garage we bought a few months ago... We'll need a new house at this rate.

My 28 month old DS is getting a Kidskraft kitchen playset, a wooden train set, some floor puzzles and books.
His grandparents are possibly going overboard - they've got him a sandpit and trike/bike.

I don't have a ds, but recently purchased a felt board for a friend's little boy (his 2nd birthday). He loved it!
I think anything open-ended is great! Blocks, art/craft items (paint, crayons, play dough etc.), threading reels etc.
Posted 13 December 2012 - 08:49 PM
My 27 month old is getting a play kitchen with food and utensils to go with it.
Posted 13 December 2012 - 08:58 PM
My 2yo DS is too easy - he's told me what he wants Santa to bring (and the list keeps growing
- but a lot of what he asks for are things he already has) He is getting "Tiny" from Dinosaur Train (he already has Buddy and Morris), a Mr Tickle doll and Mr Strong DVD, a balance bike, a little suitcase for himself, some craft things and things he needs, like suncream and clothes.
Posted 14 December 2012 - 04:19 PM
Books, tonka torch, little tikes construction building thing and a harmonica
Posted 16 December 2012 - 05:24 AM
2.5yo DS is getting: Art stuff (micador giant textas/dot art pens/crayons etc), Peppa pig trunks, book, sticker book, mini micro scooter, plastic golf set...and to my horror (can't believe I'm buying these!)...peppa pig wii game and a small nerf gun, so he doesn't fight/tantrum and take the one his big brother has asked Santa for
