Our youngest 2.5 has LOVED the wooden eggs in a box that we got from John Lewis.

Other hits include:

toy money for our cash register that had toy money in it when it was new about 5 years ago!

random duplo figures with hair from ebay

bath crayons

(struggling to remember anything that was in ds's stocking)

What've been hits with your lot?

A yoyo
A bracelet
Chocolate coins (espec a hit as they are special dairy-free ones)

DS got some condoms as a joke - I think he had to explain them to his father.

My two DS have been obsessed with the cheapy Christmas musical toys which came from the supermarket. A Mouse and a Snowman who sing "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" when squeezed. Still going strong! Quite annoying though! grin

The Wriggler - a two-inch bit of green fluff from John Lewis pocket money section.

DS also got Brio trains and Playmobil but if you ask him what Santa brought it's all about The Wriggler.

whizzy helicopter thingy's.

I dont know how to explain them but you pull the trigger thing and the rota bit flies off into the air.

I am with onga on the individual lego figures for my DSs 5 and 2 and also a toy that was called boogez (or something similar) plastic nose filled with goo and a monster. Disgusting but hours of fun [yuck emoticon]

you can't beat a whoopee cushion IMO

Hand buzzer
Paper gliders
Lego torch
GoGo's

Keep them coming, these are fab.

I'm actually thinking 8 year old boy party bag toys too, some great ideas here!

Ooopsadaisy Sun 06-Feb-11 19:44:37

Aaaah. So the condoms are not under consideration then?

DS (2) is obsessed with a little wind-up dog (it does backflips) and a Bee. They were £1.50 from the garden centre.

DD (4)loved her magic expanding flannel (?) and a pocket-sized volcano.

My two went to a party today and got some paper lazers in their party bags. DD (and DH and meblush) have played with them all afternoon!

PatTheHammer Sun 06-Feb-11 19:55:11

Sorry, paper lazers here

MyCatIsABiggerBastardThanYours Sun 06-Feb-11 19:58:00

A packet of A3 paper
Some paint brushes
Some paint
UHU GLue
Glitter

et voila...

messy happy kids (and one slighlty stressed wall scrubbing mummy)

Sterling Sun 06-Feb-11 19:58:16

Stretchy dinosaurs. Anything dinosaur related is a big hit with DS (2.5).

mychildrenarebarmy Sun 06-Feb-11 20:00:06

Ds (3) and DD (7)
flannels that open out when you put them in water
bubble bath
books
DS also loves the bread flour Father Christmas brought him.

PatTheHammer Sun 06-Feb-11 20:07:09

Yay, another vote for magic flannels!!!

Who would have thought that it was only going to cost £1.60 to get my DD to wash her face without shrieking like a banshee!

NorbertDentressangle Sun 06-Feb-11 20:10:44

Jar of Marshmallow Fluff
Tins of neon coloured plasters
Squirty foamy soap

but....best of all....as it is every year...

Fart Putty

My 3 year old loved the little books sets you can get, these types http://www.amazon.co.uk/Spot-Little-Library-Baby-B ooks/dp/0723263418/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=12970229 48&sr=8-1
sorry don't know how to do a little link lol!
also a rubber duck for the bath, felt tip pen set from poundland, sheet of stickers (which he decided to decorate everything including himself in!)

hugebelly Sun 06-Feb-11 20:12:06

satsumas
skipping rope
bath oils that look like marbles

BeatriceLaBranche Sun 06-Feb-11 21:09:15

It's technically cheating because it was £6, but the lego torch DS got has been fab and played with loads.
