Please eb I need ideas DDs 3rd Bday is a few weeks away and I have a brain full of mush when it comes to ideas for her.
With house, farm, finshing uni and all rest I have let it slip away and now need to do some shopping quick sticks for prebirthday delivery.
She already has a balance bike and at moment a real bike would not be that useful. She got a ragdoll for her christmas but I won't be finshed another doll I was making for her birthday....
I got her playdoh for christmas but she gets it everywhere....
I was thinking some happyland stuff to add to the collection from elc but some other suggestions would be much much appreciated!!

TIA K

Dress up box- a box containing old handbags, scarves, hats, bead necklaces, and some heels to clomp around in. 3yo girls love that stuff and you can source a good range of it at any op shop.

Sylvanian Families and furniture/caravan/car. You could then add to it over the next few years for Christmas and Birthdays.

Dress ups great idea PP.

My DD got some Lalaloopsy dolls at Christmas and they've been played with.

Does she have a doll house? Would she like the Sylvanian Families animals?

Something to decorate her room?

something that my DD plays with all the time and something that you can add too is some schleich fairy figurines and unicorns etc.  Pieces of material that they can lay out as different ground covers and some resin mushrooms which i have picked up for about 6.95 each.

My mother in law bought my girls a box full of cake decorating stuff, all different coloured writing icing, sugar flowers, balls, glitter edible stickers etc etc

I just whip up a dozen cupcakes and off they go. Best present ever!

My dd likes the shleick figures as well. She got a horse float, jeep, driver and horses for her 3rd birthday and some African animals for Christmas.

thanks folks some great suggestions thus far...
Tramp is a no no at the moment but maybe this christmas
I was looking at some play furniture - you know swing with cubby sort of thing but crikey you need finance with that, and if I do it as a bday present she would be all 'no its mine' with her brothers. ( I am thinking of asking the buildeer to whip something up when he does the fire shelter though)
I like the schliech stuff DS has a lot of it from when he was a kid will have a look.
