I love my 4 year old neice. She is truly a joy to be around. She thinks she is a princess and I affirm this by spoiling her rotten at holidays, birthdays and any other occasion that I can find. This year when I received my Sears Wishbook we sat down and carefully marked the pages of what she would like Santa to bring. I was surprised at some of her choices and was amazed at what they offer for children these days. Here is a list of the items that we will be purchasing this year as well as some of what a typical 4 year old girl might enjoy this holiday season.
1. Disney Princess: Ariel’s Armoire with Dress-Up Set- I like this set as it includes everything we need all in one package. It has a charming armoire that will be used to store all of the lovely things that come with it. It includes the dress, shoes, tiara, and necklace. This set is the little mermaid and the dress is a really pretty sea green and purple. All little girls love to play dress up she has informed me.
2. TMX Elmo – Tickle Me Elmo 10th Anniversary- I braved the morning air to buy this for my son. This is a hot item that is currently sold out at most retailers at this time. I have however been assured by multiple Wal-Mart toy managers that there are more on the way and not to fret. This is a overall cute doll and I love that he is so animated and can stand himself up. I do however think it is kind of creepy the way he rolls around on the floor. The best part of this doll is the fact that Elmo came with batteries. I love that they included this feature as most of the time I overlook the batteries.
3. Disney Princess: Magical Talking Kitchen Playset- Like I said before my neice is totally into the princess theme at this given moment as well as play cooking. This is a nice set as the sounds are very realistic. It also comes with handy accessories such as a talking cookbook, toy tea set and a play phone. The nice part of this is the kitchen actually resembles what a real kitchen area looks like. With the over door and clock.
4. Giant Three-Story Wooden Dollhouse- I really like this dollhouse but I majorly dislike the shipping charges. I like that it is so big and there is plenty of room for her to move her dolls around in. I also like that you can use standard Barbie dolls in this doll house. You do need to purchase the furniture as it is not included however you can be creative and buy different furniture than what is suggested since the house is so big and has so many different options,
5.M&M’s-Brand Vending Machine- I actually like this toy as it can also be used as a bank. My neice likes the fun sized bags of candy and this is the perfect way to to limit the candy she eats as well as to help her start good saving habits. My favorite feature is that fun sized candy is always readily available and that there will be plenty of opportunities to learn the value of a dollar.
These are just a few of the ideas that we have circled right now. Do keep in mind these come straight from the head of a four year old with lots of wonder and excitement of the upcoming holiday season.
