We're visiting Moscow in May, and one of my husband's close friends has a daughter who will be about 2 by then, and I'm wondering what kind of gift(s) would be good for her? I'd love to get your input since I have nearly zero exposure to children.

Probably would depend on if she's a girly-girl or not, but stuff like dollies, those stuffed animal backpack buddy things, plastic tea set, glitter pen, tiara, teddy bear, etc etc.

Favorites from my nanny child and just stuff we like:

-leapfrog picnic basket...cutest gift ever. We got it for Jo for Christmas, by my boys love it. It's pink with all the fixings for a picnic (plates, forks, a "blanket", cups, and food that is in shapes that fit onto the plate). I think it's perfect for that age range

-A doll stroller...these get tons of use for all kinds of things, dolls, stuffed animals, a load of matchbox cars, etc

-A plastic bug catcher with plastic bugs. Very popular with both my nanny child and with my kids. They love to "catch" the bugs in the catcher. I think the one we have is "Sunny Patch Kids" brand. It's so cute.

-Melissa and Doug wooden "paper" dolls. Julia LOVED those when she was 2.5 or so. She would play with them tons. My guys don't have them, but I keep meaning to get a set for our house.

For now that are my top suggestions I love that age group. It's so full of discovery and imagination.

How about some good old fashioned books? They would be fairly easy to travel with, too. Check out "Heads" or "Tails" by Matthew van Fleet - nice illustrations, cool animals, and highly interactive - flaps and things to pull - perfect for a 2 year old!

I second the plastic tea party set idea. My nieces LOVE theirs. Also the disney princess baby dolls. Ross has them for like $15. Also kindercarry.com now makes baby doll carriers just like some of their baby carriers. They are really cute and she could carry her doll everywhere she goes.

These are some great suggestions! Thanks everyone. I'm so clueless when it comes to kids these ages (I'm totally open to more if people have them!)

In all my years working with horses, I have learned most little girls love or at least appreciate horses. Maybe a realistic looking horse toy that has a tale she could brush? With a few horse accessories to go with it? It would be easy to fit in your suitcase

maybe you could get her something "american"? I have no idea what but it would be cool for her to have as she gets older since she's so far away.
