I need some more toys. Here is what I have.

Fifi stack up game
Train track
Toy cars
Musical instruments
Moshi Monsters
Farm playset
Littlest pet shop and playset
toy babies in a cot
Activity cube (like the ones you have at the doctors)

We go to the toy library every two weeks and this week I have
Magnetic blocks
Wooden hammery toy thing
Stickle bricks
Big train track

There's not that much choice at the toy library and we've had everything already :(

No money to buy any either as all my wages pay my rent and I'm not actually mnaking any profit at all

What about going to some toddler groups to give variety or try using some of your recyclable rubbish to make things for them to play with. A large box can make a hundred things with enough imagination.

What about pretending to dress for different seasons, using their clothes or stuff you have at home?

I have a 14 month old and a 20 month old with development delay so not really into the whole dressing up thing at the moment.

We're getting a wooden toy kitchen in May for my 20 month old's birthday (she's my daughter :) ) but neither of them are really at the stage yet for role playing

How about doing more messy play. Put them bothin highchairs to limit mess and give them trays with...

cooked pasta/spaghetti
flour - with/without water
syrup and spoons
bubbles and water
rice and scoop/spoon and cup

etc, etc

Hours of fun from things you probably have round the house.
