    My family and I are traveling to Norway this summer and have been instructed (by my parents) to buy toys to take for my niece (age 5) and nephew (age 3). My parents have given us $200 to use for the toy purchases! What can I buy that are great toys and would not be too hard to pack and take on an international trip? Any ideas?
    Thanks

    hiya! I've been trying to think for you.
    Games are always a great thing and pack kinda compact. Or any hand held games for the 5 year old, fun and small. And don't forget books are always a good thing.
    A stuffed animal, or soft doll. I think you just need to get out there to the toy store and see what works.
    Let us know how it went! It'll be fun to go do that shopping!

    i shop online whenever possible! So I've been browsing amazon.
    I think fridgits and a magic wall (magnets stick to it) might be part of the gift. Other than that ...?
