A few of Emelia's birthday presents. I found myself searching for posts of other peoples ideas for inspiration. So I thought I would do a little one of my own! I will try to link as many of the items as possible as well.
1) Emelias "main" present from us is a little dolls pram. I have known for ages that I wanted to get her one for her first birthday I just wasnt sure what to go for. We've gone for something she can use right away and is totally gorgeous !

2. We've also picked up a Happy land set from ELC. My sister had these as a child and I remembered she used to play with her sets for hours! I'm hoping she will start to get some interest in them over the next few months and the parts are very durable and not too small. Obviously anything that is to small we will just put to one side. Just a quick side note. When checking the link to this item they are still available but when we purchased the item it was less than half the price in mothercare so whether they will reduce again I don't know.

3. We had to get something from Emelias favorite little tv program ! so we have brought her the little character set to play with. She loves smaller items to play with so again I hope she will start to really like this throughout her second year. We picked up her set in B&M of all places and I cant find the exact one online anywhere. The set was £14.99 and has alot more charecters than most packs do

4. This ones a bit of a random one but Ive heard so many good things about these and also the little eggs they do aswell. Appariently they keep little ones occupied for ages !? So the little cupcakes have to be matched up with the shapes on the bottom and they are brighltly coloured and can be stacked and packed into the little box. And probably lost aswell! Great for role play, learning and something a little different.

Puzzles and Books. We've chosen a few slightly more grown up books and puzzles to add to the collection. Ive become that mum that chooses learning ones ! (sighs)

We've chosen a few clothing items and other smaller bits but the above 5 are her toys from us. Below, I have included A small list of presents people have brought for Emelia. We were asked what she might like which is good so she wont get any duplicates!
