The 2015 Smarty Holiday Gift Guide is sponsored by our favorite local toy store, Toys & Co in Cotswold. Find everything on your child’s wish list and then some at Toys & Co! And guess what? They will wrap every gift BEAUTIFULLY and oh-so-expertly – so you don’t have to pull an all-nighter on Christmas Eve!
Our holiday gift guide continues this week with ages 3-5. JV spear-headed this one! If you have more gift ideas for ages 3-5, share ’em in the Comments section! We’d love to hear!
While her brother could play for hours and hours at the train table, my daughter, who turns four this winter, loves playing with dolls. This dollhouse has five rooms and a balcony with plenty of accessories and scenes for my daughter’s imagination to run wild!
While you’re at it, go ahead and get the extension floor and make it a dollhouse mansion!
My son may be into trains, but it was my daughter that was in awe when she saw a commercial for this toy train and track. This is the coolest toy! The curved track rolls around the floor, while the train choo-choos along on the track as it rolls around. Her brother may end up with it by the end of the night.
My Little Pony Power Ponies Pack
Lately my daughter is into everything My Little Pony. I’m sure there will be plenty of scenes for her to play with, but the fact that she can do it with her Power Ponies Pack will make it so much better! These little Ponies pack a cute punch!
My daughter is really fascinated with science and nature. This Butterfly Bungalow is something that she is going to love. Not only will she get to interact with beautiful butterflies, it’s a great learning experience about the beauty of nature.
For boys, KidKraft Airport Express Espresso Table and Set
We love this new and creative spin on the traditional train table, this train set puts an entire city at your child’s fingertips.
Bitty Baby is the first introduction to the American Girl line and your little girl will bask in the glory for years to come. Love, love, love the Bitty Twins! Relatives can buy clothes or accessories at a perfect price point.
American Doll Pajamas
Dolls have started to take over my daughter’s life. She loves taking care of her dolls and dressing them. Last year, we got an American Doll Bitty Baby and book. She still loves them! This year, we will plan on getting matching pajamas for her doll (bitty baby or a new American doll!!) and the same pair for her. The idea of her wearing the same pajamas as her doll will send her over the moon!
Football Guys are the BEST gift for the older ones in this age group. They don’t require batteries, they don’t make noise, and sports-loving kids can play with them now and for years to come. Also check out the hockey, soccer, baseball, and basketball guys.
Also great for the older ones in this age group is the EzyRoller. Definitely best for the five-year-olds and up, this is also a gift that will last for years…and gets them outside. Win, win!
If you’ve got a house full of boys, check out Mashoonga and let the battles begin…or carry on. 🙂
