Raspberry pi starter kit. Not sure what else. It's quite expensive.

doittoojulia-what on earth is raspberry pie?

It's a basic computer. Think a motherboard and not a lot else, which is why I'm getting the starter kit for him.

My ds has asked for an iPad and a puppy.

I wish he'd change his mind....

I am looking into the Hudl to see if that might be a hardier cheaper alternative.

Lots of Lego.

I'm making a spy kit.

Microscope.

What about a camera? A normal digital one or a pocket camcorder? I've bought a pocket camcorder for my DS3's upcoming birthday and I had a play with it and it's fabby. Lots of waterproof/shockproof ones available for the more rough and tumble types.

Ds1 has asked for a scalextrix and Lego at the moment. It is his birthday a month before Christmas and he has got a Rubix cube and a game for his ds so far.

Ds turns 9 shortly after Xmas and he wants golf lessons, a new scooter and minecraft stuff.

Go kart
Stunt scooter
Disney infinity starter set

My DS wants:

Nitro stunt scooter
FIFA 14 for the Xbox
Gross Magic

He is really easy to buy for other than those 3 things. As long as it comes from the Man City store, he is happy.

I am getting both dss (7 and 9) wheelies shoes.

Ds 1 is also getting

Operation game
Metal detector loads of small stuff
Possibly a penknife as he has wanted one for years
