Growing up we had a rule that we were only allowed to ask for three things from Santa Claus (and one of them had to be "a surprise"!). Jonathan and I kind of stuck to the same idea when it came to Emilia & Eduardo. Each of them got three Santa presents, as we felt this way they appreciate their toys more and get to enjoy & play with them properly! Added to that is the fact that they always get so many presents from family members & friends so we didn't want them to get overwhelmed by too much at one time. These are the toys that Santa brought them this year.
We'll start with Emilia's!
Frozen Elsa & Anna Toddler Dolls
These were the two toys she asked for as she just recently has become obsessed with Frozen and had been talking about Elsa & Anna dolls for the past month. Her face when she opened them up on Christmas morning was absolutely priceless! Even I am sort of in love with these...Elsa in particular has that "Barbie" smell that I remember from when I was a child! They are so pretty!! They both come with tiaras (though Anna's is missing in these shots) and shoes as well as a hair brush each and plastic Olaf.
Doc McStuffins Costume
Lately Emilia has been really into Doc McStuffins and we knew a friend of ours was getting her the Doc's kit so she needed the coat to go with the part! The underneath part of the costume is actually just velcro'd on and it includes matching pants too!
onto Eduardo's presents...
Okay so Eduardo isn't exactly old enough to ask for particular presents yet, but we were pretty sure he'd like something along these lines! So he got a big box of Duplo which is safe Lego for his age group. What's cool about this is that he & Emilia can play with it together so it's fun for both of them!
You can't see from the pictures above as I've since got rid of the box & lumped all of these legos along with the other ones but Eduardo also got this set as Jonathan decided he needed some cars in his life...ha ha ha! Poor thing loves car sounds, noises and toys but doesn't get much of them as Emilia's toys are mostly quite girly. I think we managed to salvage one (stolen) Thomas the Tank Engine toy which he had been clinging to for dear life so we definitely needed to get him something with wheels to call his own!
Last but not least Eduardo got this night light which Emilia was given by my mum two Christmases ago! She has the ballerina one, while Eduardo has the jungle theme. These are so beautiful and a huge hit with the children as they love watching the pictures spin around the walls of their room! I'm so happy with this present as I always knew I wanted one for each of my kids and I think they're really special!
Those were the things Emilia & Eduardo got from Santa Claus this year! I hope you enjoyed this post & hopefully it even gave you some ideas too! ;)
