Well he will be 9 in January so he's getting an iPod touch. Then for his birthday 16 blimmin days later, a kindle.

Dd initially wanted a 3ds, now after her brother has said he wants a tablet, she does too. I'm quite happy with this as tablets are generally cheaper than a 3ds plus games.

I'd love to get her a nexus 7,but it will probably be an amazon knockoff. She does have an ipod touch but it has many cracks sad still works mind.

thanks, any more ideas

my girls 10 + 11 are getting an electronics kit and a manga drawing set (top items on the ubiquitous Christmas list..)

DD is 10y (Y6) and we are getting her an iPad Mini and some Skull Candy headphones.

For those thinking of Kindles - DD bought herself the £69 Kindle this year and she loves it - she now reads every single night without fail and often will lie in bed on a weekend morning reading. Was a bug big hit!

Seriously considering an iPod touch.

Dd is 9 and just got an iPod touch for her birthday. It's brilliant. Get her one, colditz.

I'm considering a kindle for ds as well , hoping it will encourage him to read more

BarbecuedBillygoats Sun 18-Nov-12 12:46:56

A ds game.

insanityscratching Sun 18-Nov-12 12:47:41

Dd is having a laptop, she thinks she is having a 3ds xl but she already has a 3ds and a ds xl so don't see the point tbh. She's really into IT and helps me and her teacher out so I think she will love it.

Thinking Kindle Fire HD for DD2-10 Y6.

Second hand Wii shes 9 - 10 in January.

MirandaWest Sun 18-Nov-12 12:56:26

DS is very nearly 9. So no idea what he is getting for Christmas (as he says, until its been my birthday how can I know what I'd like for Christmas?)

SteppingOnLego Sun 18-Nov-12 15:06:37

ipod touch here too

My DD who is in Year 6 and 10 is having a Kindle Fire and vouchers and a case from grandparents. One of the things she loved last year was a storage box filled with stationary. She's used it all year.

Logo lord of the rings on the wii (If it's released in time)

lego even blush

Ds is 9 and he is getting either an iPod touch or kindle fire and a furby.

All 3 DDs (8, 9 & 10) have requested and are getting a Google Nexus 7 tablet. Quite a bit more than we would usually spend but hopefully they will last a while. Initially they wanted iPod touches but for less money they could get a bigger screen which they can also use as kindles smile

Ds is 10 on 6th Dec and he is getting various dr who stuff for that, so no real main present.
His xmas present is an xbox, which he is not expecting at all, so I cant wait to see his face.

A new scooter as he has completely worn his old one out.

DS2 is 10y8m (sounds quite similar to your DD from reading another thread) and will be getting the Cheese Touch Board game. He loves Diary of a Wimpy Kid and the game involves practising skills that in him could do with a boost. Also the Basher Science books and a Wii game (Lego Harry Potter).

dd2 is 11. She's getting a phone (now she is at secondary school) and I think maybe a smallish Cath Kidston hand bag or similar.

Dededum Sun 18-Nov-12 17:43:15

DS1 + Ds2 both laptops. Hugely expensive but I need my computer back. Be careful with the iPods, they can get Internet and before you know it they will be watching endless utube videos. You can put a restriction on them removing Internet access.

With there laptops they will have timeupkidz which restricts the hours and times they can go on.

Small cheap tablet between all 3 kids. Plus a few little things each (eg super fluffy slipper boots from Sainsbos).

9yo DS getting a stunt scooter, £50 reduced from £100 on Amazon.

Other options were spikes, skateboard, skateboard helmet, cricket helmet.

He has also saved up for an ipod touch with birthday money.

TeeBee Tue 20-Nov-12 12:28:53

ipad mini (but only because its his birthday on Boxing day, and he wants to forego a party so he can have the money towards his present).

My 9 year old boy and 10 year old girl getting a mini moto.

Myliferocks Tue 20-Nov-12 12:33:12

DD2 - 12 - new phone
DD3 - 10 - new phone
DS1 - 9 - PSP

Laptops, we got them cheap tablets for their birthday but they are of limited use, so rather than battle over computers they'll have one each.
