Ooo, Fuzzpig - how did the big reveal go for the den thing that you were making for your DCs for Christmas? <sorry for hijack> I remember reading on another thread before Christmas that you were doing this.

Father Christmas we also made one for our DCs out of the cupboard under the stairs which we managed to keep secret somehow since October when DP painted it. They loved it on Christmas morning, lots of squeals from 6 year old DD, probably the biggest reaction to any present she's ever had.

Embarrassingly guitargirl we didn't do it sad blush things just got away with us the last few weeks before Xmas, lots of illness etc. It will happen one day though!

Yours sounds fab though! I am really impressed you managed to hide it so long! smile

Ahhh, yes, it does get totally manic before Christmas doesn't it, I must admit I was questioning my sanity at 1am on Christmas morning as DP was struggling to get the door of the cupboard off its hinges without waking up the DCs and I was sticking glow in the dark stars to the ceiling....it was totally worth it though and they have practically lived in it since!

We hid it by sticking a large heavy suitcase in front of the door for 2 months beforehand and I just did bits and pieces when I had a chance. It does now mean though that we have essentially lost a large storage area so having to be a bit more ruthless about clutter.

dd2 was 6 in Nov. For birthday and Christmas she had and loves:

Sylvanians
Lego friends
dsi and games
new scooter with flashy ribboned handles
Tinkerbell doll (x2)
Tnkerbell costume
Tinkerbell cape
Tinkerbell shoes
flying tinkerbell
Tinkerbell's friend (whose name I don't know because she is now called Tinkerbell)

she also like My little pony
anything crafty
playmobil
doll's house

But dd1 would have hated most of that. She would have liked
sewing bits
craft (not babyish stuff)
elf and fairy ornaments for her bookshelf (not disney)
roller blades
scooter
books
soft toys

Furby, by far and away
Hama beads
Since Christmas she has been playing with the lego a lot, even though she got some of it last year, and some of it the year before. She is 6 in a couple of weeks too, and we are going to ask for Lego friends sets.
The book people have a good offer on Dr Seuss books as well we are going to get (if that's your sort of thing)

Oh yes, Hama beads have been very busy over the holidays. We inherited a box from a friend. they had really good shaped boards, which were much more inspiring than the square blanks, and both girls have spent ages doing it.
I used to hate them, but have revised my opinion!

DD turned 7 today and what has proved a big hit so far (and also with her 4 year old brother!) is a digital Barbie where you use the stylus to design the lights on the dress. She has played with it all evening.
