New Sibling Gift Set
My nephew was 2 when his sister was born. His parents had spent 9 months preparing him. They thought they had done a great job. One innocent comment undid all their hard work "Grandma is going to look after you when Mummy and Daddy go to the hospital to get the new baby".
Grandma stayed for the first week and my nephew was not himself at all. Constant crying and acting out. My brother put it down to the big change of having a new sister. When Grandma came to leave, my nephew tried to go with her. Finally, all was revealed. My poor two-year-old nephew thought that Grandma looking after him when the new baby came was a permanent arrangement and he had made peace with the fact he had to move away from his family. For some reason, he thought that parents were only allowed one baby. It hurts my heart.
I always make sure I greet the older sibling first when I'm being introduced to a new baby. I also try to take them something so they don't feel left out. That's how this gift set came about. The book is a classic. Peter Rabbit being introduced to his new baby sisters Flopsy, Mopsy and Cotton-tail. A great read to get the child used to new siblings. The doll is absolutely gorgeous. The clothes come off (except the hat), so adds to the play value. I've also got a separate pyjama set which makes a nice addition (sold separately). The doll is by French brand Moulin Roty and is available in pink or blue.
You can add anything you like to the gift set to make it even more special. Everything is individually gift wrapped free of charge.
- Great for age 18 months, age 2, age 3 and age 4
