Given that Christmas has just gone she seems to have everything she wants/needs already.
DH has made her a little wooden shop which is great but I'd love to give her something else.
She already has lots of barbies, a bike and scooter, scribble and write, trampoline, sylvanian families, dolls, drawing stuff, dress ups etc
I'm sure there is something extra we can give her I just can't think of what.
If anyone can offer some ideas I'd be very grateful....

Do you dare delve into the world of Lego yet? Could be good. My kids love it (3 &5) but it does usually end up being meticulously pulled to pieces 24 -48 hours after I spend a lot of time meticulously putting it all together  (esp by the 3 yr old)

Sand pit

Other outdoor activity thing eg

Her bigger brother has lots of Lego but she's not really into it too much.
A sand out is a possibility if I can find a covered one to keep out spiders

okay. He`s into action. We recently got a pool table, which he is obsessed with, and is into watching tv. He works a lot and when hes not working he is mostly sleeping. Use to love to play sports, but stopped recently. Hope that helps.
