S/O What does your 3yo DD want for Christmas?

I need help mamas! What does a 3yo want? My Little Pony? I never browse the toy aisle so I don't know what's out there. Relatives are already asking for her list... As for my DD's likes, she is obsessed with computer games/iPhone games. And she loves jumping and has a room full of toys that rarely get loved.

do they live near you?

if she never plays with her toys, can they get her experiences? Like 1 trip to the zoo with Grandma and Grandpa? A membership card to the local playplace? etc etc

ETA: I would also suggest a child-friendly digital camera.

Do you have one of those indoor jumping places where you live? The kinds with the big inflatables or trampolines? Sounds like she'd love a few trips there! I wouldn't do more toys if she already has lots she's not interested in, it's just more stuff for you to pick up

Does she have fairy wings? My then 3 year old loved hers at xmas time. She still wears them and we have added to her fairy wing collection. She loved her tutu skirt too. Oh and things that jingle. Oriental Trading had a xmas 'tutu' that has bells attached.

My 3 year old is all about dress up stuff. Anything she can role play in is a huge hit. She also has a play kitchen that gets a lot of love.

At 3, my DD was the most excited about the baby doll accessories we got her for her baby. It had stuff like bibs, diapers, pacifiers, pretend lotions and soaps, etc. She also loved (still does) dress up. Tiaras, kid jewelry, and fancy dresses, tutus, wings, boas, scarves, etc.

I love the dress up clothes idea, I bought DD a few pieces last year at Walmart. The day after Halloween they put all their costumes and other Halloween items on sale 50% off so I was able to get some great deals. I also second the digital camera idea, that's on my list for DD. Have you seen commercials for the drawing toy thing for iPhone/iPad? I can't remember the name but you can use it with or without the iPhone plugged in, she might like that. HTH

Definitely dress-up. You could even do a theme, like all types of hats or shoes. DD has a basket full of hats and loves to have "hat parties" with me and her dolls. Scarves and ribbon wands are good, too.

An indoor trampoline is on our wish list - the Lily Pad one with netting all around . Not sure how much you want people to spend.

Themes are generally helpful if you can't think of a specific gift - all ballet-related items, or things she can use in the pool, or all art supplies.
