help! I have no idea what to get my 2-yr-old son for Christmas

Sounds horrible, I know. but I have no idea. He's 20 months tomorrow. He loves blocks, cars, balls, dinosaurs.
I plan on getting the Mega Bloks dump truck so he has a truck and more blocks, and some dino figures but other than that I'm at a complete lost.

What are you getting your LO's that are about this age?

DS was two last year and his big present was a kitchen and various play foods/dishes. He LOVED it and still plays with it daily nearly a year later. Other big hits were more mega blocks and dinosaurs/animal sets from the dollar store, but he is a little mimic and was beyond thrilled with the kitchen. He "cooks" dinner for us all the time.

No clue what his big present will be this year but for his other presents, I'm making him a dino hoodie and some monster longies, and plan to get him some stocking stuffers and books.

DD is also just about 20 mos. we are going to get her a kitchen and play food. Other ideas that I have ready for relatives, grandparents etc - art supplies, books, puzzles, membership to the local zoo or aquarium.

Play Kitchen

Little Ideas:
Play Food Set
Musical Instruments (DD loves her maracas best)
Dress-up Hats (cowboy, astronaut, pirate, etc.)
Toddler-size Broom
Balloons - I think DD would play with balloons all day if I were willing to keep blowing them up.

My 2yr old loves his Geomags! They're magnetic plastic building toys that are completely sealed, so good in the bath and dishwasher, too. We're getting him the farm set for Christmas. My 5 year old still plays with them, too. Check out Geomag baby, Amazon sells them, too. I had never heard of them until I saw them at a friends house.
