    Default What was your 2yo son's favourite birthday gift?

    I ahve tried searching and looking back a several pages but can't find any old threads...

    So what was your 2 yr old boys favourite gifts? I have no idea what to buy DS! He adores Thomas the Tank, he is very physical and loves to climb, run jump, he enjoys building.....
    We have a pretty big back yard now and I am prepared to spend about $150-200 (at the absolute most!)

    We have lots of trains and train tracks, some wooden blocks and mega blocks. He has a scooter (which he can't figure out how to use yet)...ummm can't think of any other favourite special toys.



    So give me your ideas!

    Any toy that had wheels lol... nothing special here.
    My brother got him a starter Thomas Wooden Railway set, and DH has been adding to it bit by bit over the last 6 weeks... He has 2 of the battery powered trains, which he absolutely loves.
    What about one of those jungle gyms that you put outside and they can climb in, out and all over it?

    Izzy actually got it for her 2nd birthday but both LOVE their train table. It came with all the tracks and trains and we buy Thomas trains to add to it and they "ride" fine on the wooden tracks even though the one we got isn't actually a "Thomas" one. They are now loving building tracks all over the floor as well and make them go from the lounge to the dining room and then get all the trains line up on it. Best buy and from memory it was around $100.

    LOL, Tan, Liam has the wooden train set which I make up on the floor....they play with it for 30mins, then trash it and then he whines the rest of the day because he can't make it himself properly! Drives me batty but he loves it so much I can't bring myself to put it away!

    nic, you reminded me I wanted to get him a big Tonka truck for outside...

    Amali baby, hmmm, maybe an easel too They have paints, but we just paint at the table. But would it be fair to get it for him, but it would be for both of them??...

    Yeah the paint stands that have two sides can be for both just designate a side each and put their paints there i like it cause he used to do it at the table and my DH would always nag about it gettin everywhere so now i do it outside in the sun and he tries to paint the birds and trees its very cute

    Yeah I agree hun they can paint one on each side! Ikea have one although it's not magnetic like some of them which I think would come in handy.

    I second the tool box...We got DS one of those tool stands where you can hang all the tools off, its a bit like a workshop - he absolutely loved it and now even tho the stand has moved to the cubby house he still uses all the tools inside occasionally and he is now 4. He kept trying to fix things, it was very cute.
