5 yo DD has on her Xmas list:

Lalaloopsy dolls - her most favourite toy in the world EVER

Some hideous decapitated Barbie head

Gross Science - which she is technically too young for but we will heavily supervise. She is obsessed with snot, slime and farts at the moment hmm

pecans Fri 30-Nov-12 11:42:27

Mine is getting a bike without stabilisers, which I am hoping she can learn to ride. She will also get Lego Friends dog show, which was £20 and cheaper than the stables, and some other things.

Angel - Argos have mini lalaloopsy £5.99 buy one get one free.
And the entertainer have good deals on the cars which I got for both my girls.

Dancergirl Fri 30-Nov-12 12:31:32

Bike's a great idea! Have actually thinking about an Isla bike for a while now and there are some on Ebay that are near enough for me to collect.

Dancergirl Fri 30-Nov-12 12:38:32

Like the look of Lego Friends too, maybe that will wean dd off Polly Pocket!

The Treehouse set says from 6+, does anyone have this one and is it ok for a 5 year old?

armani Fri 30-Nov-12 13:29:34

My dd has -
iPod touch
Elc dolls mansion
Collection of elc rosie dolls
Disney brave DVD, book and rag doll
Argos design a friend
Mamas and papas doll pram
Monster high dolls

Glittertwins Fri 30-Nov-12 13:52:11

Dancer, we're getting an Isla bike each for their birthday hence the smaller Christmas presents.

AngelOne Fri 30-Nov-12 13:57:07

Ooooo thanks for the tip boringnamechange smile

Dancergirl Fri 30-Nov-12 14:11:24

Are you getting new or second hand glitter? I've been watching a few on Ebay but some of them are going for nearly as much as a new one!

Glittertwins Fri 30-Nov-12 14:13:44

We're going to get new. We will part-ex them back to Isla when they get outgrown, providing they are in a good condition.

Dancergirl Fri 30-Nov-12 14:22:56

That's good, I didn't know Isla did that! Dd is between sizes but I spoke to them and they recommended the cnoc 16. She'll grow out of it quicker than the next one up (Benin?) but it will be easier for her to ride initially.

Glittertwins Fri 30-Nov-12 14:27:06

Same here on the bike sizes. But since speaking to Isla, DD is now much more confident on the bike and she has just reached the lowest point of the small Benin. DS is a little shorter but again, by their birthday, he should be okay. I was really impressed with Isla not trying the hard sell on me.

Apologies for slight thread hijack OP.

Happypiglet Fri 30-Nov-12 14:28:44

DD is 6 in July and is getting
A beinn 20 Isla bike as she needs gears to keep with the rest us
Tarzan DVD
Marbles
Choc money
Mini stamp set
A flannel
Lego key ring

Andthat is it except for the -- random crap-- stuff that in laws get.

Dancergirl Fri 30-Nov-12 14:28:44

No probs! I hadn't thought of getting dd the bike as her main present - it was just something we were going to get her at some point.

2cats2many Fri 30-Nov-12 14:29:07

Roller skates, inkoo, some alphabet stamps, Mr Gum CD, light for her micro scooter, easy reader book and a bit of christmas chocolate.

Galaxymum Fri 30-Nov-12 14:33:55
