entertainment for 2 year old in pelvic sling?

  1. My friend has a 2 year old that will be in a pelvic sling for the next 3 weeks. I would like to send her a package, and was wondering if any of you peds nurses have suggestions on what I could put in it? :hatparty:

    MMMMMM well with a 2 year old of my own in the house......
    Best thing that Ican think of is a big bottle of Chloral Hydrate.....
    well since you probably wont be able to do that playdoh, crayons, a new blues clues video, or maybe like some of the toddler legos.
    small busy hand stuff.
    In fact she is sitting here right now and she says the balloons

    A target or basket that she can throw paper wads at/into. Puppets, Barbies, mobiles, a prism and a flashlight, a swirly straw to keep fluid intake up, sing a long tapes, scissors, glue, paper etc for crafts, lots of magazines (get donations from family and friends) to cut out of, walkie talkies to talk with buddies, or to call mom, and small presents from family to open daily.

    my 3 yr old is in love with the land before time series of videos and they are clean, sweet and teach manners. she also loves dinosaur action figures, playdoh and coloring books and music making toys.

    Children's movies.......................the attention span usually sticks eith these, especially if they like the character and possibly a matching toy that matches the film.
