This year Archie is going to be 22 months old at Christmas. I looked online for some present ideas but for one year olds they were too young for him and for two year olds they were slightly too old.
I decided to put together a list of items that we have got Archie this year. We haven’t gone crazy on presents as last year he got far to many for his birthday and Christmas which he still plays with and we don’t have the room to store them.
We tried to go for things that he could play with throughout the year so things that were slightly too old for him now that would benefit him in a couple of months and things he can play with now.
We spent a fair amount of money on his sack from Father Christmas rather than presents from us as we knew this is something he would enjoy more and find more magical.
Below is a list of things we got Archie from us. I will writing a separate post with stocking filler ideas.
1. Micro Mini 3 in 1 Scooter – John Lewis £89.99
We decided to get this for Archie as he has a trike already and a ride on. This scooter is recommended for ages between 1 and 3. The seat and round handle can be removed when the child is able to balance properly and the handle bar can be attached for the child to use between and 5 years. The seat is height adjustable which is a big hit for us as Archie is tall for his age. The scooter also comes in green, blue, and pink.
2. Fisher Price Talking Bing – Very £16.99
I actually got this for Archie from Sainsbury’s during the half price toy event a couple of months ago for £15. I have however found it on Very for £16.99 which is the cheapest place I can find it now. When pressing Bings tummy he sings and said lots of fun things. The recommended age for this is 2 years.
4. Fisher Price Thomas & Friends Mobile Phone £11.00
Archie actually saw this and asked for it when we was doing a spot of Christmas shopping in Boots. Luckily it is included in the 3 for 2 deal so I managed to get it for free. I have put this away as a little extra for him as I don’t normally let him get toys when he asks for them when were out shopping. He absolutely loves talking on the phone to people and will literally use any object and pretend it is a phone. It has a large easy to press keypad which plays sounds and lots of phrases from Thomas and Friends. Recommended for ages 18+ Months.
5. Diddy the Dinosaur & Mickey the Monkey Hand Puppets – WH Smith £7.99 each.
Last year for Christmas I got Archie some puppets from WH Smith, a hedgehog and a fox, and he absolutely loves them. He thinks it is hilarious to have puppet shows and put on silly voices so I got a couple more for the collection. This year I have gone for a monkey and a dinosaur. They are suitable from birth so that is a massive hit as any age can benefit from these furry friends.
6.Thomas & Friends Story Carry Case – M&S £8.99
As you can probably tell Archie is obsessed with Thomas the Tank Engine. I saw this carry case of 5 story books in M&S and just had to get it. I love that Archie can
carry this case around with him and take his books on his adventures rather than have them shoved in my bag. This item does state that it is not suitable for children under 36 months but he will be supervised when using them.
I’m going to leave the Toddler Gift Guide list there as I have got Archie a few other bits but they are little little bits personal to him that he will love.
If you have any ideas of gifts you think Archie will enjoy then please leave suggestions in the comments below, his birthday is in February and I’m stuck for ideas.
Thanks for reading.
Love Tilly & Archie xx
