my cousin is pregnant and already has two "older" kids.
i cant remember exactly how old they are but my guess is something like 5 & 7.

she is having a "sprinkle" for the baby but im wondering if there is anything fun i can get for the 2 older kids in relation to having a new baby.

i know there are tons of books for this and shirts that say "im the big bro/sis" but i was wondering if there was anything else. i personally cant think of anything but i have no experience in this.

they are right at the age where they will be interested in helping i think.

Reno was giving a book about being a big sister that she loved and most other people brought her toys that had nothing to do with a new baby. She was 3 going on 4 at the time. I don't think it's important to get the kids something that has to do with having a new baby. Besides the books and shirts I've never seen anything "fun" to get a kid about having a sibling. The only thing I could possible think of is a baby doll with diapers or something. Reno had a Corelle doll that came with all baby things.

I would just get them a little something so they feel remembered too. Just a toy or book they might like. I don't think it has to be specific to being a sibling.

When I had Shorty, Doug was 6. Someone bought him a real mug (ceramic and everything) that said "Big Brother". Because it was a "grownup" mug he felt really special.
Alex got a "big sister' necklace. She was three. That was not a good idea.

Shae got a few little activity sets from family the day I had Silas, to give him something fun to do while they were in the waiting room. He loved the origami one!

I think the fact that you're acknowledging them with a present will be the biggest part of it. It doesn't necessarily have to be big brother/big sister oriented just something they have an interest in.

My friend recently had her second baby and I was pondering this myself. However, her son is still only 22 months old, and he doesn't fully grasp the concept of there being a baby, let alone of him being a big brother.

Yup, exactly. As the oldest, I remember my brother getting a lot of extra attention because he was the baby/one of the youngest kids around the neighborhood for a while. I always try to give my friends oldest kids as much attention as the little ones, as I remember what it's like.

as a mama of a 24 month old who just had a new baby sibling I will say something to keep the kid busy. Things that were good for my son to play with by himself so we could have a few moments to tend to the newborn. What we got were a coloring book and crayons, a few matchbox cars (although some have small parts so only if the kid doesn't put stuff in his mouth,) a small duplo set, and some stringing beads like this http://www.amazon.com/ALEX%C2%AE-Toys-L ... ging+beads
