Ah right thanks. So just like the baseball caps when I was a child then. None of those fancy buckles in my day you know wink

a snap back is adjustable, it has a plastic band with little pegs that snap into holes.

Oh I thought a snapback was one of those bracelets that you snap blush

For my DSCs:

DSS (21) lego marvel xbox game, an 'ask me about my ninja' t-shirt (heard about that on mn grin), possibly a Segway driving experience? Or car related stuff if he's bought his by then.

DSD1 (15) not sure - something Asa Butterfield related, maybe converse or something, struggling for ideas this year!

DSD2 (15) manga drawing stuff, geeky hoodie, DVD box sets

fuzzpig Sun 27-Oct-13 19:51:45

These threads are always surprisingly educational - I keep going off to amazon to look up stuff I've never heard of grin

But I have to ask, what is the difference between a 'SnapBack' and a regular baseball cap?!

I try not to get loads of stuff as their birthdays are February and April so there's a steady influx of toys in those few months!

RhondaJean Sun 27-Oct-13 15:25:58

My oldest is 14, she's asked for an electric guitar, a pile of steampunk clothes, band t shirts, Pokemon toys, an original Gameboy ŵith the Pokemon games (I am delighted to have managed to get them from eBay after some hassle) CDs books and DVDs. I've also bought her makeup and beauty products but she knows I do that every year. She's asked for cosmetic contact lenses (cats eye ones) but there is no chance I will buy her them. She's also after another pair of docs and a pair of goth boots but I think I'll let her get them herself out of the money she gets. I'm getting her tickets for one of her favourite bands but she doesn't know they're playing so I'm hoping for a big reaction from them.

It's not so much fun when they are teenagers sad

The littlest is 9 and she's getting nothing on my nerves with her hoarding

Possibly a hudl
Monster high school
Too many monster high, equestria girls and ever after high dolls
A furby
Lots of arts stuff (she loves making things)
Possibly an animation kit
Lego star wars - DH picked can't remember what it is
Monster high party room set
I can't remember to be honest because I've got most of it already and it's packed away!
Clothes, DVDs, CDs and lots of books

They both always get new bedding, pjs, slippers, housecoats and sweets as well.

Thanks lecce

lecce Sat 26-Oct-13 22:34:22

BeaWheesht Spy manual is called Spy Guidebook by Colin King and is on Amazon. Sorry I can't do links blush. Reviews seem promising and at that price it's worth the risk! I'm hoping it'll be a nice balance of stuff he can do alone and stuff we can do together.

fuzzpig Sat 26-Oct-13 19:10:02
