I need ideas on what to get my husband’s niece and nephews for Christmas! They are his step brothers children that we aren’t particularly close with so Idk if they like paw patrol, Mickey mouse, etc or really what they already have. The boy and girl are 3 and the baby is 6 months. I had the idea to buy remote control cars for the 3 year olds but my husband thinks they may be a little young for that. I’m really at a loss for the 6 month old

I get books, drawing supplies (the kind that are mess free), building blocks, or simple puzzles.
For infants I like getting cloth books because they can play with those in the bath and chew on them and they’re still books.
I also usually ask the parents what their kid is currently into and double check that they don’t already have something that I plan on getting them.

How about building blocks for the kids? My nephew had fun making castles and kept making things with it until he was 4-5 years old.
For 6 months old it’s hard to say. The baby probably received a lot of hand me downs from the siblings. You can always get a cute outfit or toys like a playing table.

anonbee4321 : ask mom and dad! I always do that. I m avoiding getting toys for my nephews (6 and 3) this year because they literally have so many. This year I got them blankets and pillows of their favorite characters with corresponding pajamas.
Its kind of lame but year after year of them tearing into every present without even knowing who gave them what makes shopping for them not that much fun, lol.

I’m getting my 3 year old nephew/ 1.5 year old niece a play mat and possibly a book like the Usborne Shine-A-Light book. I agree with others you could ask the parents. I can’t add a picture for some reason but here’s an example of the play mat.

I got my nephew an old cartoon from when I was little. It’ll be a hit I think!
Books are always good. Wooden puzzles. Duplo?

I second the books! What we did this year was I asked my sister if she needed anything specific for the kids and she said no so I bought them tickets to the Sea Life exhibit that’s local to me. I’m big into experience gifts rather than buying junk that they won’t use in 2 months (although the 6 month old may not get a lot out of it).

The 6 month old, the Fisher price learning dog would be great! It is sold all over the place. I gave this to a distant relative with a young child and it was such a hit that I have given it to 3 other kids since and all the kids and moms have loved it! It is sold practically everywhere you can get any kids toys. I have bought it for about $20 at big lots. Here’s a link to amazon:

I like the Fisher price dog idea! Darling Husband did call his brother to ask and he was busy so he said he’d call back and never did. I like to books idea but as I said we’re not that close with them and brothers wife is…sensitive about her children is the best way I know to put it. I feel like if we got them all books it’d be like “oh so my children aren’t educated enough?” type thing. Sounds dumb typing it out but she’s like that
Do you guys think 3 is too young for remote control cars?

anonbee4321 : they have little fisher price ones i think. I wouldnt get a three year old a legit remote control car, they probably wouldnt be able to figure out the remote. All toys have a recommended age on the box, that will help you figure out if a toy is suitable for your nephew.
Go on amazon and search ” remote control car” and filter by age.
