I know you said you don't have time, but making a sandbox for her (of course with parents permission) would be awesome, and they could keep it for years. Plus you could always update it each year- repaint the sides, add decoration, etc as a birthday gift.

From Amazon: A turtle that shows the constellations. My baby brother had one and loved it- and my parents enjoyed having a pretty night light that they could use as a learning tool.

Also this keepsake kit will allow the parents to make a new Christmas ornament of their girl's first Christmas, plus they can make an extra one for the favorite grandma. Yes, this isn't really for the daughter, but lets be honest; she'll play with the box and be completely overjoyed.

If you want to really make the daughter happy, this sensory tub is AMAZING. Just a tub, you say? Oh no. This can be filled with sand, small pebbles, noodles, water, beans, etc to fully engage her sensory experience. I teach with a program that has one-year-olds and they go crazy when these tubs are brought out. You can even make it into a cute basket by including things like this and this and still stay in your budget! :)

For me? I'd like this so I can sleep in a few mornings :) Good luck to you in your quest for the perfect present!

5.) A classic, Ender's Game because why haven't you already read this??

6.) An item that is less than a dollar, including shipping... that is not jewelry, nail polish, and or hair related! Sorry! Nothing physical. $1.55 is the closest.

7.) Hello Kitty!

8.) I think compasses are beautiful.

9.) Princess Bride - but no on my WL. <3

10.) Gerber 22-41131 Profile Guthook Fixed Blade Knife -- It's self explanatory really.

11.) I love to cook and I need to cook healthy food but my current knives (and I use the term loosely) leave me beaten and bloody. So these

I loved these giant bricks so much at that age! Superfun for basic stacking as well as advance building.

Should probably wait a bit on this one, but Cootie is the best game ever for the preK & K crowd. Another classic game is Memory.

Have some construction paper, brown paper bags (I cut the bottoms off, then down one seam and use the backside as kraft paper), markers, and crayons. Even the 2 year old can rip paper up and stick it to contact paper to make fun collages! Bonus, no need for scissors!

And please don't forget books! Board might be best for the little girl, but if she's not an eater/tearer, then go ahead and get paper or hard backs. Rikki Tikki Tembo, a Seuss collection, Where's Spot, some Eric Carle, Carl, Richard Scarry, Jamberry, and some Little Golden Books ought to be a good start! Protip: Thrift shops have tons of books for kids in great condition.

Is anyone willing to share their kids' absolute favorite toys/games/crafting supplies? (We have two girls ages 4 & 7.) I'm trying to be a lot more selective to avoid the toymaggedon that invariably happens every year when we end up with a lot of crap they don't care about or play with. And I refuse to get on the LOL doll/Pikmi Pops bandwagon because they are fun for the 3 minutes they spend opening them and then zero interest afterwards.

I'll share a few of our favorites in case anyone else is in the same boat:

7 y.o. loves: Uno (card game), Math Slam game,

4 y.o. loves: Melissa & Doug housekeeping set, M&D play kitchen

Both girls are obsessed with drawing/coloring with oil pastels

Family games we all love playing together: HeadBanz, Zingo, Monopoly Junior,

u/littlebugs · 3 pointsr/Mommit

From cheapest to most expensive...

Art supplies are always appreciated because they're used up so quickly. They're a great default if you don't know what to get.

My favorite children's CD by Rachel Buchman.

Dapper Snappers are really nifty little things that most people don't know about.

Head to the bookstore and get the staff to recommend some fantastic children's books.

Get a family membership to the local zoo, aquarium, children's museum, nature center, etc. (although check first - many places let children 2 and under in for free, so a couple's membership might be a better value).

u/justarandomcommenter · 3 pointsr/raisedbyborderlines

Just remind yourself that being angry is a totally valid and perfectly healthy way of handling something that upsets you - the line is drawn at acting on the anger.

For example: Don't get angry and daydream about killing your mom, then snap at your kids for being kids, or kick your dog, or tear your husband's head off for not putting the dishes away. But if you "embrace the angry" you're feeling, and enjoy "treating yourself" to some fantasy about her empty funeral and pigs disposing of her body - then laugh and play and enjoy your life like she never did, and hug your kids, and passionately embrace your husband/wife - that's perfectly healthy and acceptable, because you're not harming anyone by doing it.

You don't have to be perfectly in control of everything at every minute. You need to be aware of your surroundings, and not harm anyone if you choose to do something to handle your emotions in a certain way. For another example, I used to love oil pastels. I would beg mom constantly to buy them for me, she'd always lecture me about how ungrateful I was, and if I posted the issue then I'd end up beaten whenever I got home. That's a prime example of not handling your emotions properly, but more than that, it never taught me what to do when I'm upset about something because all I know is "don't be like her", so like you I'd try bottling it up and just not being angry. I exploded on someone one day because it was just too much and I still didn't have any "tools" to deal with anger, because as far as I was concerned it was a bad emotion and I needed to try harder to be a good person and just never feel it, ever. So last week, I explained to my therapist what's going on and what happened when I blew up last year and we were talking about how to handle it (I love this new therapist!), but he asked why I'd never bought myself a box of oil pastels. I didn't have an answer of course because it was essentially due to believing I didn't deserve them, which is totally bullshit, but I've been dealing with much bigger issues and the oil pastel thing was buried deep (I only had told the therapist by accident even).

So instead of snapping at people and trying to avoid being angry (which just isn't possible BTW, don't be hard on yourself for feeling angry) - but instead of dealing with any of that, I bought a box of Crayola oil pastels off Amazon, and a couple of first drawing pads (if you or anyone else reading this is an artist of any kind, do not look at those links in the context of "art supplies"). I got them yesterday (cause I've got no memory and forgot to order them for a week), and ripped them out of the box - which is also a phenomenal release (if you don't often o order from Amazon you'll see what I mean, it's like the Christmas you never had, sitting right at your front door!)... But the first thing I did was break the end off of the brown one because I scrawled out "Fuck You Mom!!!" in huge letters that took up the whole page.

It's not about being perfect, or acting your agree, or "keeping up appearances". Being angry is part of being human, and suppressing or avoiding that anger won't end well for anyone around you (trust me on that one, I still feel bad about my blow up and it was nearly 18mos ago! Thankfully everyone around me now is very good at forgiving and being kind and understanding, but I still feel guilty about having snapped in the first place).

Good luck, and please remember to be kind to yourself, be understanding and empathetic - to you as well as others. I'd like to offer huge, warm, sincere hugs if you'd like some.

Sorry again for babbling, I'm apparently incapable of not being verbose :)

I hope you get to do something unplanned and unexpected this weekend, that you want to do for once, and you surprise yourself with how much you enjoy it! (I "sucked up" my fatigue and pain from my MS a couple of weeks ago and went to the "dinosaur museum" with the kids and husband, it was so much fun - even though I spent thirty mins scrubbing their hands/arms/faces with Wet Ones cause I'm also paranoid everyone's walking Petri dishes...

Cheers :)

  • The cheapest item I have isn't going to qualify :( It's $1.92! It used to be $1.18 though...darn amazon prices. It's on my wishlist because I love coloring, and Crayola is vastly superior to Roseart :)
  • I'd like a gift card if I win the $20 item--I'm saving up for this beautiful, incredibly expensive Kindle! I love reading, and the thought of taking TONS of books with me EVERYWHERE I GO just is amazing to me! I want the superdy-duper fancy one, because I might as well go all-out if I'm going to be saving up! It's going to take a long time to get enough for the Kindle, but it's worth it to me :) I've never had a fancy tech gadget before, and I can't imagine a better one than a giant fancy book to pop my techno-cherry :)

Sonya, Your Momma wouldn't tell you this but remember to share to your classmates. Sharing is caring. Treat others how you would treat yourself.


u/zaikenandzeppelin · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Congrats on being sober, that is awesome!
FUN???What could be more fun than CRAYONS

u/apileofpenguins · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

I have this and a great multitude of coloured pencils (I'm not good with markers). I also have some excellent colouring books (mostly dinosaurs).

This is the best party ever.

u/Hayes_for_days · 5 pointsr/Conservative


Here. You can buy her a soldier's favorite meal.


Before anyone freaks out, I'm an Air Force vet, and this is meant only as banter. His daughter probably would have roasted me too.

u/Metabilities · 3 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Yes, get a pretty fountain pen or felt tip that makes writing fun! I like le pen, varsity disposable fountain and sharpie's calligraphy pens.

u/gambola · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Madison? Ella? Rose?

Congratulations Uncle Rambo :) You must be so excited! I used to have a whale of a time with these when I was a kid, so they are my recommendation :)

u/SereneWisdom · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

These Crayola Oil Pastel Sticks for me and the boys to be more artsy. It's summertime which means the boys have lots of free time and drawing is something they like. And I like to doodle as well from time to time.

Thank you for this contest.

u/piggychuu · 1 pointr/CasualConversation

Oh man, THIS! You can get so much art supplies for cheap off Amazon....and I'm sure you can get kids arts stuff for even cheaper.

If you want to be a realllly awesome gifter, and if you're going this route, you definitely need to get the GIANT pack of crayons. Who didn't want one of those when they were smaller?

u/thirdjane · 5 pointsr/beyondthebump

What about small, baby safe toys?

Finger puppets- a decent deal because one set would fill multiple eggs if you put one in each.

Sensory balls

Toy animals- as long as they're big enough to not pose a choking hazard

Crayons- toddler crayons come in all shapes these days!

Or if she's not big on putting stuff in her mouth, Fridge magnets if you don't already have them

I like the idea of cereal/puffs though! Can she have teddy grahams or goldfish? I know there are some dairy-free recipes for both on pinterest (Not sure if they're egg-free though)

u/fabricwench · 2 pointsr/ZeroWaste

I love beeswax crayons! Those are similar to the Stockmar crayons my kids used as toddlers and preschoolers. Waldorf and Montessori supplies are great for plastic-free supplies for kids.

u/-DINKLEBERG- · 1 pointr/Coachella

I like to use these http://www.amazon.com/Crayola-Washable-Window-Crayons-5-count/dp/B001QKNOZQ. I've used them for edc 3 years in a row, you can get some pretty nice details with them.

u/jayco · 12 pointsr/Favors

Can't find the three packs, but would something like this be useful to you? Let me know if so.

u/homeallday · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I think, aside from gift cards, this is cheapest thing on my lists. School supplies! WOO!

u/Cynnimon · 6 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

Triangle crayons are crayons meant for 12-24 month old little ones to promote a good grip and so they wont roll away when they are set down. They are fairly normal :) http://www.amazon.com/Crayola-52-4016-16ct-Triangular-Crayons/dp/B001VXNFD4

u/Christinacorn7 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
  1. These crayons have ALL the colors!
  2. I drew these colorful chalk ballerinas and I want to dye my hair like this!
  3. My favorite color is various shades of red! Mostly dark burgundy reds!)

u/lkrudwig · 1 pointr/AskReddit

Oh, man... I would've loved to have the mega 120 Crayola Crayon box.

I would've instantly been the most popular kindergartner.

u/AffenMitWaffen · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

You can always have fun with an amusing coloring book and some crayons. Lots and lots of fun ideas for adult coloring books.

u/MillenniumIce · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Thank you for the contest!

add-ons are pesky

I could use either this for $3.99

Or this for $4.97

Happy Thursday to you too!

u/tha_snazzle · 1 pointr/pics

> I would have been more than willing to skip food for a couple of days if it meant we could spend the extra money on Crayola.

Roseart 64-pack: $3.99

Crayola 64-pack: $4.50

I hope for your sake that the price difference was much greater when you were a kid.

u/jambo2011 · 1 pointr/doctorwho

Awesome! My Nephew does that all the time since I gave him these.

u/TrollznLolz · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Where does one procure a telescoping crayon tower?! I had the 96 crayon set back in the day, but I've never even seen anything larger than that.

Found it! though I've never seen it in an actual store.

u/LollyLewd · 2 pointsr/funny

I have a 120 box right now but I'm lusting after the telescoping tower of glory
