  1. Great list Lauren. I kind of miss the coloring shower gels we had in USA – our kids loved them! I’m sure Lesley would still have fun with Crayola and Play Doh is favorite thing in school! (Even though she is no longer a toddler!)

  2. This is awesome. I googled stocking stuffers for toddlers and found this post, and it’s perfect. I want to get him everything on it! Sadly, that toothbrush is out of stock and I can’t find it available anywhere else online either, but it looks like there’s a Trolls one that is similar, so either way, I’m glad you pointed out the toothbrush that sings, hopefully it helps encourage him to want to brush, so far that’s not going so well. Thanks for all the great ideas!
