DS asked for quite alot this year but couldnt afford to get him everything on his list, have decided to get him
One big present
two medium size ones
and 2 little presents
plus cheap stocking fillers i may pick up while wandering round the shops.

Big presant will be a buzz lightyear
Then getting Gator golf and Doh nutters
A Thomas and Friends annual and a couple of thomas and freinds take along engines

I made a budget of £100 and if i get all these things from argos it comes in at £82.49 smile

Does anyone know if any of these things on my list are on offer anywhere.

Also do you no what ur getting ur DC's this year?

How much are you paying for your Buzz? If it's the £39.99 one I think it's a waste of money. Unless he really wants the Jet Pack one. (the Jet back is two blue ribbons at the back that blow out with air). But that's it's only feature, its wings don't pop out like Buzz's in the films. DS got this Buzz for his birthay.

Have a look at the Disney Store Buzz for £20, we have had to buy that one because on the non-pop-out wingage hmm

Gator Golf is £12 in John Lewis (not sure if that's the cheapest, but is cheaper than Argos)

Think argos is cheaper on the annual and doh nutters at the moment.

Last year I got DS the buzz lightyear. It cost £1.99 from a charity shop.

I have boiught all of DS's presents this year already. Will not say what here as he can read grin

Yes it is the jet pack one, tbh he is only 5 and i think he just wants a buzz lightyear not nessrally that one

If i could afford it i would get him the £99 one that does everything it think but that my entire budget on one toy!!!

Think i might look around for another buzz.

We got DS1 (4) the jetpack one (well he saved his good behaviour money for it) and tbh he would have been happier with the wing-flipping-out one too.

We are getting a friend's hand-me-down one

I have done most of the DC stuff already but stuck on 2 things:

Jessie & Bullseye pack (seems to be out of stock everywhere, can anyone check their Argos or give me another idea pretty please? )

ELC wooden trike & trailer (not pink!) waiting for a 20% off or finding a cheap one on ebay

omg i have just seen the £200 buzz on the disney store!!

Which buzz is best???? That aint gonna break the bank, wanting to spend around £30-40

JustKeepSparkling Mon 15-Nov-10 17:34:06

TBH the £20 one looks perfect

Hai1988 Mon 15-Nov-10 17:35:16

I am liking this one, but dont know if i can preswade DH to get it without compromising on the other presants. Spesh as this one is £99 in argos

Hai1988 Mon 15-Nov-10 17:36:05

what £20 one? link please smile

JustKeepSparkling Mon 15-Nov-10 17:37:22

That 50 one does look pretty cool but I know DS would be happy with this one: 20

Hai - ds had the Disney Buzz (4 years ago) - until recently I hadn't realised there was a difference apart from price! He also had Woody from Disney who is still his favourite toy despite his string not working anymore and him being filthy a bit grubby blush.

Justkeepsparkling - there is a 20% off ELC code on the codes section...

JustKeepSparkling Mon 15-Nov-10 17:40:15

Still hoping for a cheapie off ebay though...

GypsyMoth Mon 15-Nov-10 17:41:21

IloveTiffany. I got Superdry, converse style trainery type things (great description eh?) from Amazon for £20.00 in a red check they have them in blue for £16. They retail in the shop at £29.99. You can sometimes pick up Superdry clothes on Ebay outlet. My dd wants a Hollister top and as our Hollister shop is still in the processing of being fitted out, I thought I would buy it online - £9.00 postage for a glorified t-shirt! Shall wait now for the shop to open.

My £20 disney store buzz came yesterday - is good, flips out wings, i pressed a button not expectign it to do anything and it spoke to me (which i then had to pretend was me messign around in our bedroom lol!). Ace inmy opinion.

My ds wants a go go hamster as his old one died (when it got caught in his sisters hair on purpose!!!)and a suprise and some lego to share with his siter - his buzz will be the suprose.

I got my ds the ultimate buzz from tesco in summer with double up vouchers it only cost me £10.
I think its a good one as it has an extra utility belt that makes more noises and has lights its on offer for £39.99 now I think

Hai1988 Tue 16-Nov-10 18:20:01

I think i am going to get this buzz

The3Bears Tue 16-Nov-10 20:07:15

Thats the same one that I got from tesco but it has the extra belt
