Whats your 2.5-3 yr olds favorite toys?

It's time to move on to "big" kid toys for my DD, and I am kind of stumped! She loves her play kitchen so I am going to get her some new food and possibly a fridge. Also some things for outdoor play, but other than that I just don't know. She really does not have many toys compared to the average kid, so we are taking a portion of our tax refund to invest in some things for her. So throw out some serious suggestions!!!

I should add we do NOT buy any character items, and try to buy as little plastic as possible. Any Made in USA recommendations are much appreciated!

TIA!!!!

Re: Whats your 2.5-3 yr olds favorite toys?

My daughter loves bouncy balls and her wooden train set. She would probably like dress-up clothes, but I haven't gotten around to getting any more, as her big sis is several years older, so has been done with it for awhile. But she loves to dress up with blankets and her regular clothes, especially to be a princess. And Legos. She does enjoy playing with her big brother's Legos.

Re: Whats your 2.5-3 yr olds favorite toys?

My DD loves her brother's train set and his tool set. Her other favorites are wooden food that you velcro together and use a wooden knife to cut apart (I'm pretty sure this is by melissa and doug), and her dollhouse. I got a real wooden dollhouse of of craigslist. I was hoping to fix it up for her when she's older, but thought it was silly to have it sit unused. I brought it out of storage this past weekend and she hasn't stopped playing with it.

I've been debating about a train table! She loves them whenever we are out somewhere.

We didn't bother with a train table. My son did nothing but trains for 4 years and he never had one either. They can build cooler track layouts on the floor.

DD loves...

Her doll house. We have the Playmobile one and it is awesome.
Squishy rubber lizards/balls from Target
Play kitchen/food/tea set--we have the color change set and it is pretty cool
Huge big rubbermaid bucket of rice that makes a gigantic mess but she loves it.
Little rubber animals
Color Wonder finger paints
Markers
Dress up clothes
Her trampoline
Her playhouse outside
Sand box

But most of all...whatever DFS is playing with.

Anything fish oriented (he has several stuffed fish toys that he adores). Mostly this.

Anything that can serve as a sky beast (as in "Space Chimps") and pretty much anything is a sky beast

Skates

And all his big sisters' stuff.

puzzles (tons of puzzles!!) and workbooks are my little guys favorite.
he did like his train set alot around age 2- 3 as well but now at 3.5 yrs he mostly likes workbooks or things that challenge him.
