    Oh I don't know about that CM you no how little ones like to put things in their mouths.

    We waited until our daughter was old enough to pick out her own ornaments and help with the decorating maybe 6 or 7 years old.

    Oh that's not a worry - I was thinking a small 2ft tree, with mini stuffed fabric decorations to hang on it

    I wouldn't go putting a 6ft tree with small or glass ornaments in their room or anything They're hardly ever in there unsupervised but anything that goes in there will be age appropriate

    That is what I did for my girls when they were young. Small tree with stuffed animals as ornaments. They now use mini ornaments of every kind. (They are 17 and 26!!!)

    Soft ornaments were what I was going to suggest.

    Be sure to read the labels:

    "This is not a toy. Not suitable for children under 36 months due to small parts that may become detached and present a choking hazard:"

    Yup, but that's plainly a warning they HAVE to put on the item, because of the button sewn on to the top. I don't think it'll be a problem. My daughter was good at knowing not to touch the ornaments on the main tree last year, and I'll teach the girls the same of the tree in their bedroom - it's not for touching. They don't play in there unsupervised anyway, but I wasn't planning on letting them take the ornaments off of the tree and use them as toys

    ETA: All of my girls know not to put small thing in their mouths, too

    Mamas always know what is best; not all children are alike.

    :tree:

    I think it's a great idea.
    My daughter, she's 12 years old, has a small one with lights and everything and my son (6 years old) had lights in his room last year but I thing he's going to have a little Christmas tree too this year.

    I think it's a decision that is completely up to the individual. For me personally, I would not do it. Not for safety reasons though. We have a tree in the living room, and my son has a little 5-footer in the family room that he can decorate, and re-decorate to his heart's content. Not only is there no room for a tree in the bedroom, but I want my boys to feel that our tree in the living room is the "heart" of our Christmas spirit, and hence, not want to spend any more time in the bedroom than necessary. Again, it's a personal choice. I have just always felt that the big tree should be special, and not just another tree in the house.

    EDIT: it should also be noted that the small tree in the family room may even disappear eventually. I simply bought it last year so that he'd keep his hands off the "big" one.
    I love Outdoor Christmas Lights!!
