- Skipping rope. Active presents are great.
- Simple dress ups. Single pieces are cheap to pick up, and can be added to everyday clothing super easily, which always happens with the dress ups anyway doesn't it? I think the big ears are pretty fun.
- Smiggle stationary. Find it here. The website actually disappointed me, after seeing their bright, sorted-by-colour displays in-store. Of course other cute stationary would be fun too, but Smiggle is the brand. And those are sweetly scented pig erasers for $1.50 if you were wondering. Almost irresistible.
- Model plane kit. This one takes my fancy at NZD$11.95.
