With Georgia’s third birthday a few days away, I thought I’d tell you what we’ve got for her!
This year, I’ve struggled a bit with gifts.
Not because I don’t know what she wants, or what she’d like, but because she doesn’t really need any more big toys.
She already has a big dolls house, a kitchen, a craft table, a slide, a scooter… the list goes on. But as a parent, it’s tempting to buy something big – something that goes beyond the normal gift guides.
So I’m going to run through what we’ve got for her as it may give some inspiration if you’re looking for gifts for 3 year old girls.
This year, we’re keeping things simple with a few nice bits that I know she’ll love…
1. Peppa Pig Live
We booked in to see Peppa Pig Live for Georgia’s birthday a few days before the big day.
It was her first theatre experience and she loved it. I was a bit concerned about how long she’d be able to sit still for but needn’t have worried. Even if she had, the theatre was crowded with three year olds and it would have been fine.
She was absolutely mesmerised from start to finish and I’m so glad we went.
So I would definitely recommend buying an experience like a theatre trip as a gift. Things are nice, but memories are nicer.
Check out your local theatre and see what kids shows they have on soon!
2. Paw Patrol overload
Georgia is a fan of an underdog. Her favourite Paw Patrol character is a stocky English Bulldog called Rubble.
According to most girl’s Paw Patrol things, girls are only allowed to like the female characters. At most, possibly the cute Dalmatian.
So we’ve ignored gender rules (as Georgia obviously hasn’t had the memo) and LOVES Rubble. We’ve got her a few little bits like a teddy and a bulldozer.
If your son, or daughter loves something, it doesn’t matter what it is. Embrace it and let them explore it further. 🙂
3. Baby Annabelle
Top of our list this year was a new baby. No, not a new brother or sister (no exciting news), but a new baby doll that she could play with.
She’s obsessed by babies and constantly has a ‘naked baby’ clutched under her arm at nursery. So we’re upgrading her own, very loved Baby Annabelle for an all singing all crying baby to play with.
I’ve added a picture of her current favourite Baby Annabelle next to the new one as a comparison for size. As you’ll see, the new baby is a LOT bigger, which means that it’s harder for smaller hands to carry around under their arms. But, it obviously does a lot more as it cries, makes noises and even goes to the potty.
I am sure that the new baby will be so loved in our house and I can’t wait to see her face.
4. Balance Bike
Those who have followed me on Instagram will know how much Georgia loves a muddy puddle and being out on a walk.
So, she’s getting a balance bike. As the smallest size of bike available, it has no pedals. It is in fact, adorably small and I can’t wait to share a few pictures of it in action.
You don’t need to spend a lot – we found a nice one for only £30 in the Halfords sale.
One of Georgia’s favourite games at the minute is Pop up Pirate. So, I’ve made sure she has Hungry Hungry Hippos on her wishlist.
Anything that involves a bit of excitement and a bit of luck goes down well and it’s so lovely to be able to play games together.
