Haven't taken my daughter to Northern Thailand - the zoo in Chiang Mai might be fun but bring lots of water as it's very humid.
If you stay in Bangkok at all there is an excellent sandbox in Benjasiri park next door to the Emporium shopping center (near Soi. 22). I think it's a nice park for kids and parents. Getting off at Phrom Phong BTS station will bring you to the main entrance. Great places to eat upstairs in the emporium as well. Good supermarket too.
You might ask someone at Bambi
. It's Bangkok info mostly but they might be able to help you if you are out of ideas.
One tip is to watch the sidewalks. Sometimes they forget to fill in holes leading allot of people who are unaware with large gashes on their legs. It wouldn't hurt to visit a doctor here before you go to get some anti-diarrhea meds. for your daughter, it's rare when you are careful but better safe than than sorry.
