    Default Present for a 2yo?

    I'm trying to decide what to get our 2yo dd for her birthday in a few weeks. We're moving house in the next few months so originally I wasn't going to get a big 'furniture' item, but now I'm reconsidering.

    So, do you think a toy kitchen or a dolls house would be better at 2? Or should I wait til the age of 3 for both?

    My soon to be 2 year old niece loves her toy kitchen (ikea) and tea set and pretend food - she "cooks" us dinner when we go over there!

    My Brother and SIL got my nephew a toy kitchen for his 2nd birthday and be loves it! His little 2 year old friends love it too. He was really interested in pretending to cook with his Mum's pots and pans though, and pretending to cook with play dough, so if its something she shows interest in then definitely a good choice.

    I think a toy kitchen at 2 would be better. DD has had so much use out of hers (she got it at 2.5). It gets used every day to "cook" and play cafes.

    We have a dolls house for her this Christmas (she will be 3.5) and I think she will love it - she wouldn't have been ready for it at 2 (though I know all kids are different!).

    She would probably enjoy both but would get more extensive use out of the toy kitchen as with the toddler egocentric pov it is much easier to be in the story than to project personalities onto other things. That or a sand/water play table. They are mega awesome!
