OhTheConfusion Wed 10-Oct-12 20:02:47

DS (10) has asked for an X box 360
DD (almost 8) has asked for a tablet
DD(13mths) hasn't asked for anything ;-)

DS will get the x box, DD will get her tablet and DD2 is getting a set of wooden building blocks and a 'first' pram.

Dd almost 10 but asd wants an iPad, a teacup chihauha (sp?) or a retired greyhound.

She may be getting a second hand iPad but has been told NOTHING else if she does.

I would love the retired greyhound but we have no garden sad

DS has asked for "the Ben 10 watch thing that is flat up your arm & it fires things out of it " - he saw this on TV ? Any ideas what this is ???

Dd 9 wants a 3DS XL she isn't having one because she has a ds lite a ds XL and a 3DS. She will be more than happy with whatever we get instead though I'm sure.

This is the first Christmas in ten years that I havent worked for Early Learning Centre.

It's an eye opener that is for sure.

Having to worry about availability and paying full price shock grin

DS (who is 5 almost 6) want the lego goldmine thing, shall hopefully be buying it sometime next week.

DD (who is 2 almost 3) keeps changing her mind but keeps going back to the Cinderella doll and horse and carriage.

DD1 a leappad ( she got a furby for her birthday last month and the DTs love it) hmm
They are now getting furbies too for Christmas.

SomebodySaveMe Wed 10-Oct-12 09:28:31

DSD (5) wants a lala loopsy mermaid and a coat for her mums house hmm
She's getting the mermaid, a big box of crafty bits I'm still putting together and a vtech laptop.

DS (3) wants the thing figure from fantastic 4 (thank you eBay). We have put together a massive box of superhero figures and costumes so his head may explode on Christmas morning!

DD (2) wants everything on adverts including car insurance! She's getting a new wooden kitchen if I have the money before the asda offer runs out.

We will be trying our best to get them

£65-I've just looked them up in Argos! I hope they cook the Christmas dinner for that price ;)

Waswondering Sun 07-Oct-12 21:42:40

No idea yet (but loving the idea of the young driver thing - one to file for future use, as I think ds would love that in 2/3 y time!)

TaperJeanGirl Sun 07-Oct-12 21:37:38

New, improved, and overpriced furbies, but, I got 3 on 3 for 2 deal in argos and got a tenner voucher for spending over £100, so at least I didnt pay full price (keep telling myself that!)

peanutMD Sun 07-Oct-12 21:30:06

DS is 6, he has asked for:

Nintendo 3ds XL - bought
Mario and sonic at the olympics - bought by MIL

Moshi monsters tin - bought by DB

Mintyy Sun 07-Oct-12 21:07:19

My dc haven't asked for anything at all ... it is early October.

Coprolite Sun 07-Oct-12 21:07:03

Moshi monsters.

letseatgrandma Sun 07-Oct-12 21:05:29

Furbies?? Are these the originals or have they released new and improved (and overpriced) versions!?

Weell DS is 11 and hasn't asked for anytng yet! Not doing letter to Santa till November apparently!

I don't think there will be anything big on it. He has most things. May get him tickets to an Arsenal game. He loves Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and got tickets to see him last Christmas. I have bought him some Tom Petty DVDs and a book. Also got him a cheap Wii game. His list will probably consist of non-age appropriate Playstation games which he won't be getting.

I can't justify any more Lego as we have tonnes!

And family will all ask for ideas for him too. Best get thinking!

FreakoidOrganisoid Sun 07-Oct-12 13:40:38

DS (4) wants scalectrix and a henry hoover hmm

DD hasn't given me any suggestions yet but I know she loved her friend's lego friends stuff and lego is one of the few toys I don't regard as pointless house filling tat blush so she'll probably get some of that.

LilQueenie Sun 07-Oct-12 13:30:16

well DD is 15 months at the moment so probably be happy with a box but I may get the "bad parent for spoiling your child" award. So far we have a large amount of happyland stuff bought earlier in the sales, minnie mouse remote control car, crayola kits, duplo blocks, mickey camera, toaster toy, 2 massive ducks, some board books, jigsaws, sesame st toys and figures, sesame st microphone plus ernie doll to go with the interactive sesame st toys for her birthday earlier in the year. She will get tons from my mum too. I also want to get her a small trampoline and a few little bits and peices.

Ds1 (15) wants a bass guitar

Ds2 (13) wants a laptop to replace his old netbook

They both always get what they ask for

TaperJeanGirl Sun 07-Oct-12 13:21:54

Dd1 (7) wants an ipad, furby, lego, drumkit, a sword (real), a puppy (real)
Dd2 (5) wants an ipad, furby, hello kitty anything, stuff for her scooter
Ds (3) wants an ipad, anything batman/spiderman/diggers/wheels
Dd3 (1) would like a doll

The elder 3 will be getting an ipad to share, I have the evil furbys sitting hidden on a shelf, some lego, ds has a few superhero bits, baby dd has a cabbage patch kid and a barking puppy, she will also be getting a mini micro scooter with baby seat so she can join the older ones in scooter related injuries, other stuff I will just get as I go along/see things on offer, over my dead body will dd1 get a sword, drumkit, or puppy grin

IWantAnotherBaby Sun 07-Oct-12 12:55:02

DS (9) wants an iPod touch and will probably be getting it. He also wants Skylanders giants stuff and Spongebob Lego, which we'll get on behalf of grandparents (I do most of their Christmas shopping - a whole other thread...), and a remote control monster truck (maybe)

DD (4) also wants an iPod touch (less likely although quite seriously considering it as her cheapo-and-quite-crap MP3 player is one of her favourite things and she looks after it brilliantly) a baby born doll that does real wees (yes), Lego friends sets (yes from GPs), a rocking crib for a baby doll (yes from GPs), and clothes for her Corolle doll (yes - I'm in for a couple of happy months of evenings sewing these). She has a birthday just before Christmas as well, so she has an enormous list of wishes.

laurenamium Sun 07-Oct-12 12:37:07

DD will be 2 and is getting a wooden play kitchen with wooden kitchen accessories from jojomamanbebe I love it and some of the add on accessories! It's her birthday the week before and she is getting a ride on push along tractor and trailer grin I love birthdays and Christmases!

iWILLdothis Sat 06-Oct-12 15:45:38

Dd (3yo) wants & is getting a bike.
Ds (almost 1) ummmmm..... Might get fresh playdough, extra duplo blocks and next size up vests& socks

DeadQODy Sat 06-Oct-12 10:10:08

Older style galaxy note on contract (weirdly only £8 a month more than her current sim only contract)

Birthday week before too ....

DesperatelySeekingSedatives Sat 06-Oct-12 09:33:51

DS is one and will be getting what he's given and (hopefully!) love it. This includes the happyland trainset (bought when it was £19 instead of 40), the elc rocket which was £15 when I got it back in July and a ride and push along Mickey Mouse car which was the free toy in the Argos 3for2 earlier this week.

DD aged 5 wants an ice cream maker. A proper one. That's it. I think I can stretch to that as they're about £30. She's also getting some Sylvanian Families including the otter family to add to her army, the canal barge and and the ice cream van (she is obsessed with ice cream!)
