    Default Ideas needed for 3yo girls Xmas present that can fit in a suitcase.

    I'm really stuck for ideas on what to get DD for Xmas that can fit in a suitcase. Our 3 children's Xmas presents have to fit in 1 large suitcase so I have bought our 2 boys an iPad mini each from us

    The 2 boys iPad and Santa presents are all sorted and don't take up much room but I just can't work out what to get DD. Her Santa presents are a furby, twin pack of G3 my little ponies, handbag with lip smackers.
    Some other items we have from us to give her is a couple lalaloopsy dolls and a barbie & horse set but they only come to half the amount of the boys iPads so would love to get her something else to go with the barbie pack and the 2 lalaloopsy dolls.
    Ideas would be great and has to fit in the one large suitcase that all our presents will be going in as we are flying. Thank you :-)

    She will only be 2yrs and 11 months at Xmas so I think it's to young for her to get an iPad :-)

    Ooohhh.... My 2yo has one . Still working out games but her cousin is the same age and has that nailed. Watches a lot of peppa pig on it. If the other two have something she doesn't wont she try and take it from them? My DD is always trying to steal her older cousins iPads which is why I got her one.

    I have an iPad that the boys have taken over but DD is not the least bit interested in using it, I've got peppa pig eps and Dora games but she is just not interested, she is obsessed with books and loves just sitting and flicking through them and takes a book to bed and goes through it till she falls asleep, i didn't know that children could have such a love of books at such a young age so I'm glad she has no interest in the iPad unlike her technology crazed brothers lol.

    No limit :-)

    She has pandora bracelet that she got for her christening but it seems a long way off fitting, it's probably only halfway there with charms but at a guess I would say another 18m off fitting her so that rules out my thought of some charms :-(

    She won't know you haven't spent as much as her older siblings so I wouldn't fret trying to match the $$ amount. Put the leftover money in her bank account. She will need it later than now.

    But some other ideas are:
    Craft items
    Books
    Musical instrument
    Play dough
    Vtech Reader

    I'm having very exciting images of taking play dough on holidays with us to my Inlaws who house is like a display home lol.
    I might look into a really nice book set of some sort as her whole days are about books and going through her wardrobe and getting changed a million times a day :-)

    Does she like doing craft?

    Maybe a little craft pack?
    A lovely pencil set and colouring books
    A kids camera?
    Games or puzzles
