Christmas is coming and this year we are focusing on learning activities and gifts that will give endless play for Naminé, our 3-year old. I recently wrote my 2-year old Christmas gift guide but as a quick recap, last Christmas on her list was a Grimms rainbow, counting bears and a bilibo!

What to buy a 3-year old for Christmas
Fur Real Dinosaur – Munchkin Rex
As you’ve probably guessed, Naminé is OBSESSED with Dinosaurs right now and being 3 (almost 4!) she also loves anything animal-care related. So of course this Munchkin Rex would be on her list this year!
We love the Grimms Rainbow, it’s used for creating roller coasters, sorting objects, making houses and so much more, so I knew Naminé would love to get these semi-circles too. These aren’t Grimms, but they fit really well, so we have lots of castle building ahead of us!
Naminé loves to make cups of tea and throw tea parties, but often wooden things just don’t last with water in them and plastic breaks far too easy. So I found this amazing tin set and can’t wait to do tea parties with her.

Splash About Hooded Towel
These hooded poncho towels are fantastic! Whenever the girls get out of the bath, keeping towels on them is a nightmare, but hooded towels are the perfect solution to this! Even better the bright colours and pretty pictures make them the perfect gift for little ones who enjoy swimming or are off to the beach soon. Naminé is obsessed with the beach, so of course this had to be on her list! They come in two designs Ninas Ark and Noahs Ark.
Naminé LOVES to play with a dolls house, so of course I had to include one in this guide. She plays with hers (similar to this) EVERY SINGLE DAY!

I love these pose-able dolls from https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/598537537/pocket-fairy-doll-bluebell-fairy-doll they’re made by an 8-year old girl who is so talented! I’ve brought Naminé these 4 so far because I know she will love them, but I’m now ordering some more too, because I know they will work great with other things like the rainbow too.
Naminé is obsessed with ‘sleepover parties’ at the moment, which basically means watching a film and eating popcorn. So of course she asked for a popcorn machine this year and this one is totally cute!
Melissa and Doug Bead Set
We already have one of these sets and they are great endless fun! So we’ve decided to get Naminé another one so she has even more choice of beads and colours.

Back to the dino theme! These glo dinos are perfect to stick over the bedroom walls and ceiling, whats better than your favourite friends giving off a cute glow while you sleep?!

We have a full sized Bilibo at home thats used as a turtle shell, a bucket and to sit and spin in. So of course the mini Bilibo’s that can also be used as a game were put straight onto Nam’s list too!
Melissa and Doug Sticker Pad
Reusable stickers… Yes, you heard me right! These stickers are re-usable and so much fun. Naminé loves to stick stickers EVERYWHERE so of course I have to get her some of these, they would make the perfect stocking filler or as a great Christmas eve box activity!

I love all things Melissa and Doug, I really don’t think you can go wrong with them. Great ideas! – Thanks for linking up with the Christmas gift guide linky!
