Toys = I need a bigger house

The girls are getting so bored with the toys that they have.  They have been playing with many of the same ones for at least 6 months.  I have added a couple of things over the summer, but nothing major.  I feel bad for them.  But, I have no idea what toys to get them.  The other issue is that I have a small house with limited space for toys while still allowing room for the girls to run around. Since Christmas is approaching fast, I don't want to go out and buy toys now.  But, I have been trying to do a lot of thinking about what toys to ask for them. 

At daycare, they love playing with the baby dolls and little doll strollers.  Recently, they wrapped the babies in blankets, told them "ni-ni" and put them to bed.  I think they would also enjoy a toy kitchen, but it needs to be a narrow one to fit against the wall in a small space.

Help!  I need lots of suggestions for small, but fun, toys for two year olds.  I say two because their birthday is shortly after Christmas.  

Let's see, what else do they like.  They love talking on the phone.  They love books.  Puzzles are so-so at this point.  They really just enjoy dumping all the pieces off. 


  1. My son is so into boxes. You can make them into anything and redecorate them.

  2. Feel foreign to look at girls toys-- but just did a quick search and saw this-- very portable- a lot to keep kids interested (not sure of age minimum though):

  3. I know what you mean. I just hauled a bag of toys to the garage. I'm your newest follower from the Mom Loop!

  4. Jersey Diva - That is awesome. Thanks! I am adding that to their Christmas list right now.

  5. Do you have Little People? There is a house, airplane, farm {and tons more} that my girls love and all of the pieces just fit back in their homes. Great for creative play and easy to store!
