Whats top on your dcs Xmas list this year and will they be gettng it?

DS (13yo) had a Young Drivers lesson - he loved it and looked very confident behind the wheel. So I reckon that will be on his 'Wish List'

DD hasn't mentioned yet. She got a laptop for her birthday (for doing homework as well).
I think she's after a new MP3 Player.

The imaginext Batcave which I've already purchased!

My ds2 wants a laptop and my ds1 wants a blackberry so they will be getting those .
Dd wants every toy that on the cartoonito adverts hmm

ds1 wants a netbook, he will be getting it
ds2 also wants a netbook and will also get it
dd1 wants everything she see's on the tv except the boys stuff
dd2 has no idea what she wants, and neither do i.

DS wants the Jake and the Neverland Pirates ship (I've already got the big one), the little version for the bath (not got it yet) and a shopping trolley to put them in (my sister has got one for him)

Ds1 wants an iPod touch

Dd wants roller boots

Ds2 wants the cast of toy story

DS1 (age 10) wants Fifa 13 - yes
DS2 (will be 7) wants lots but the one he keeps coming back to is the Super Moshi HQ - less keen as suspect it will be broken by boxing day, probably by DS1 who has a habit of 'lets see what happens if...' Have bought him a set of the Super Moshi figures. Suspect he in reality he will have more fun with those and a box for a HQ. If I see a good offer on the HQ may crack and get it and just ban DS1 from touching it!!

Ds (4) wants a Lego millennium falcon-already got.
Dd (14) wants books book sand yet more books, thinking of getting her the new kindle. If for No other reason that between us we can barely move in my house for books.

What's a young drivers lesson?

<off to google>

A gun. Saw it in Smyths, am totally despairing. He's going to get the imaginext batcave.

Vagaceratops Mon 01-Oct-12 14:29:38

DS1 wants Converse trainers which he will be getting
DD wants the Tangled Animator Doll which I have already got
DS2 I have no idea what he wants, but as the only thing in the whole world he likes is Ninky Nonks we are getting him a musical one.

Young Drivers
driving lessons for 11-17 yo.
For someone who is 16-17 (so thinking about driving lessons on the open road) it gives them a chance to drive with an instructor in a dual-control car.
They use an empty car-park, so there's plenty of room, cones, painted 'lines' and the give way signs.
For someone like DS ,it gave him a chance to try something different. (It was his birthday present for last December but we didn't get round to booking it blush )

It's supposed to reduce the risk of accidents with new drivers and the risks of teen-drivers stealing cars for joy riding (not sure how true that would be TBH)

I didn't fancy taking my DS out to the local Learner Driver place. He's not legal for me to insure and I've heard hair raising tales shock.
Plus, I value my car ,and my relationship with my DS,

Both mine want Roller boots. Am not sure to get a bigger size so by spring/summer they will still fit!

Taffeta Mon 01-Oct-12 14:46:36

A Wii U. Its for the whole family, we all want it, have nothing atm.

Other than that, it'll be small gifts only, annuals and DVDs.

Both of my DS's (aged 7 and 6) want the new Lego Batman sets.Unfortunately for them they wont be getting them.I learnt my lesson with Lego a long time ago.It takes hours to make and seconds to be in bits all around the house.

DD (3yo) asked if Santa would bring her a giant purple towel for after her bath.
I'm pretty sure he will manage that. smile

Yy Beautician!

Mama1980 may I enquire from where did you purchase said millennium falcon? Any special offers I'm not finding at the mo? grin

Mine are having a skateboard plus pads (ds1) and a playmobil castle (ds2) off that there eBay!

ds hasn't said anything yet, which is odd because he'd picked out his birthday presents for months beforehand hmm

dd wants a baby that cries and closes it's eyes, and wets itself and opens it's mouth for a dummy (hmm) - I'm sure we can accommodate most of that.

MissBetseyTrotwood Mon 01-Oct-12 20:14:05

My mum never tires of telling me how I wanted ' a hairband' for Xmas every year. With the implication that she thinks my ds's are materialistic and grabby! I don't think they are any more than any others I've met!

rhondajean Mon 01-Oct-12 20:19:42

Dd1 wants a mini fridge for her bedroom and clothes.

Dd2 wants most of the Argos book but in particular the clawdeen wolf/ coffin bite monster high play set.

Santa has both in hand grin

TommeeTipsy Mon 01-Oct-12 20:28:46

My girls would both like Sylvanian Family stuff. Sigh. DD2 drew eyebrows onto the cotton tail rabbits (belonging to dd1) a few months ago and it caused a world war three for days.

Dd1 has just turned 8, she requested science stuff so we have g&t her microscope, telescope, big book of science facts and chemistry lab set (for children!) oh and a make your own nail varnish set but that will go in Stocking (main present comes from mummy and daddy, small presents in stockings from Father Christmas and family presents are given after lunch and in laws presents on boxing day when we see them so they are spread out)

Dd2 has been asking for maxi micro scooter since March so given in and ordered it last night, her birthday is 10 days after Christmas so thought we could get her some of the accessories as birthday presents!!

Normally go mad at Christmas and get loads but this year we decided on one main quality present and then fewer stocking. Presents but better quality stuff, as we still have bits I got for stockings last year that haven't been used/played with !!
