    You could buy some face paints! :-D

    All the kids will love that!

    What about a pinata?

    You know, one of those brightly coloured cardboard/paper figures (you can get them themed i.e. pirates, handbags, frogs, butterflies etc. the list is endless!)

    Basically, you fill it with sweets and/or toys, give kids a blindfold (if over 8 years I would suggest!) and a pinata "stick" and (stand well back and brace yourself) bash it to bits until the goodies fall out!

    Hours of fun?! :giggle: :giggle:

    At my nephew's first birthday they had one like a Bee for my brother's workmates' children. One kid went up and didn't want any of the sweets because he didn't like sweets. lol. My brother said to him "well don't go near any bees then".

    i dont get it:? lol

    We went to a pantomine in december with a child, and she must of been the only one there who shouted 'NO' when asked if they liked sweets - couldnt believe it!

    As I said - theres always one!

    xbox 360:whistling:

    Get him a PSP !

    Depending on what you want to spend - money into his savings account would be my suggestion especially if the kid has everything. Chances are whatever you buy he'll be more interested in the box anyway.

    I got my little boy (hes's 2) a "Bubble" computer which he loves, they were on offer on the Bandai website for 15 with one game. It is brill because it can be played on its own or with the tv/dvd and its with charcters like fimbles, teletubbies etc.
    Good luck anyway!

    I can't believe you are even writing this sort of stuff on here :roll: (only joking, you sound stressed) a present for a 2 year old!! :giggle: for a start that child will not know what you got it so an empty box would be a good and gives hours of fun, failing that I would look at getting something like a cuddly toy from one of the main films at the moment, Happy Feet etc.

    It sounds like you are trying to please the parents :whistling: if he was a little older I would say Lego but at that age, things like books etc are wasted.

    Let us know what you decide on in the end ;-)

    Why not just take him out to somewhere like the Zoo, ice cream etc ?

    Why not just take him out to somewhere like the Zoo, ice cream etc ?



    Have to say I think thats the best idea - give him a day out

    Alternatively, if they have a garden then an outdoors toy always goes down well

    Actually crazy1 might be on to something there what about a mega block set in a circus theam Im sure ive seen them.

    Not to sure on the bubble Idea we got one at christmas for my 2 year old and have no end of problems atlthough he does like the books.


    Failing that what about a couple of story books or craft stuff (paint paper sparkles ect) or even a truck. THere's not a two year boy on the planet who wouldn't love another truck!

    Shame they don't make stickle bricks anymore

    Stickle bricks were great!

    Circus themed present would be good on the day, but would the feeling last?

    Books depend on the child, some love them, some dont, also on whether the parents will actually read to him

    As a child I loved stickle bricks as an adult I have a feeling I would hate them still remember my mum and dad cursing everytime they stood on one :giggle:

    My mum chipped her knee cap kneeling on the lid of lego (shaped like a giant lego brick)

    I remeber going to Lego Land in Denmark when I was a little child - it was ace lol

    If he's into Lego (funds permitting) - take him to the one in Windsor !!

    You could always go for a nice meal in a pub & throw him in the ball pool, lol, hours of fun !!

    Standing on Lego is the most painful household injury.

    last time i used lego was wen i had an interview at argos n we had 2 make a bridge very strange

    [quote=Crazy1]at that age, things like books etc are wasted. [quote= Crazy1]

    It depends on each child / family but I think this is an ideal age for books. Not to learn reading, just simple stories. Mine adored them at this age. Obviously they have to be the right age (otherwise they will just collect dust) ELCentre will advise you.

    Somebody once bought my three year old a plant / bush. Seemed strange at the time but gave a lot of pleasure many yrs later. It was always his plant and we took it with us when we moved.

    Could also think about the Royal Mint who do special coins (might be more appropriate for christening).

    Time off for parents is ideal but at that age, unless they know you well - it could be problematic on a day trip!!

    How about a dress up outfit of some sort? The only problem with this tends to be you can't get them to take it off to wash it.

    Haha! That'll be from Daddy Day Care (if you have seen it, you will know what im on about!) :giggle:

    get him something cheap and cheerful that always seems to do the trick .
    kids seem to be more interested in the crap stuff.

    or you could get him a motorized motor bike bet hell love that if he aint got one:whistling:

    Lol! Yea, and when they do take it off, you dnt recognise them!

    If you dont like the parents, then get him something noisy! Lol!

    After the morning I've had I would reinforce my idea of craft stuff my 2 year old has spent the last 1 1/2 drawing with his crayons (lots of 'pictures' of scoop and bob the builder :giggle:)
    so yeah a packet of crayons and a ream of A4 paper!

    If you like the child and the parents put money in a savings account, funds allowing.

    Many, many moons ago we bought our then 2 year old daughter an old fashioned wooden farm. She loved it! Spent hours playing with it as did her sister after her.You can buy quite cheaply mega packs of animals for this.

    The nice thing is you can always add to it with tractors, farmer figures etc. - she used to choose a 'Britain' (from memory I think that was the make) animal for her farm at every town outing. She ended up with all manner of animals residing there, including a panda and crocodile! :giggle:

    Panda farming may certainly be the future.

    She wasn't far out wth the crocs though, was she?

    Ha, ha!! :giggle: :giggle:

    A child ahead of her time perhaps??

    I'd try a my first hornby or scalextric set - they're excellent value and they're very hard to destroy!

    Argos have some reductions just now for the half term some of my favourites are Winnie the Pooh Story teller search catalogue 3482852 or 3485567 for the Little tale house Goldilocks and the 3 bears
    Also Woolworths are selling their Chad Valley wooden farm for 14.99 - I've tried to paste the link! woolworths.co.uk/ww_…nie

    Me and brother did this when we were younger, every time we went into town we went to ELC last and got to choose an animal
