c's 2nd birthday wish list

i cannot believe my baby boy is about to turn TWO years old! we are celebrating him this weekend, so i am in full party planning mode, but i wanted to share some highlights of the wish list that i sent to relatives for some gift ideas that i think Carter would enjoy for his birthday.c's 2nd birthday wish list

c's 2nd birthday wish list by lori-williams522 featuring KidKraft

isn't this melissa and doug mail sorter SO cute?! Carter loves going to the post office and putting the real mail in the slot, so i think that he would like this play version, too!

C loves books, and we are running out of storage for all of them, so i think that this sling bookshelf would be a great solution, that way he can get them out (and put them up? maybe?) by himself!

this kidkraft table would fit perfectly in the corner of our living room, and give C a good space to play, do arts and crafts or even sit to have a snack. 

and since he LOVES to drag the broom and swifer out of the pantry, i think this 'lets play house' set and dyson vacuum would be a bit hit... although, maybe i should give him a handheld vacuum that actually works so he could help out with the housework a bit...

i've got to admit, sandboxes haven't always been at the top of my list for toys (because: the mess!) but, i've been trying to think of some good wintertime activites... and this boy LOVES being outside... so, with the lid and the legs on this one (so hopefully he won't crawl IN the sandbox?) i'm thinking this one is a good option! 

and... puzzles. because they're good learning tools. Carter is currently obsessed with letters... i am so impressed that he can identify almost all of the alphabet (just missing about 4 letters!) so after he nails that, i want to work with him on colors and shapes.

nikes. because they're so darn cute... and the kid is growing like a weed!

i think this trampoline would be a big hit, because he loves to jump and he loves being outside! and, as long as he worn some warm clothes, that would be a good way to get his energy out in the fall and winter months. 

 this play climber seems like a perfect option for his age, because it's bigger than some of the "my first playset" kind of things, but not too high off the ground so that i would have to worry about him falling and getting hurt. 

if you have a toddler, what are some of their favorite toys and games? 

we haven't decided what we're giving him yet, as we are waiting to see what he gets at his party and we will probably give him his gift closer to his actual birthday, next week.
