Ideas please he can't think of anything he would like?
Has a DS3D Wii decent bike laptop etc so all the biggish options covered
Loves books Dr Who Merlin and Lego of course
Did think about a kindle but he likes 'the feel and smell of books'
Any ideas?

DS1 is getting a stunt scooter for his birthday next week.

For Christmas he would like a x-box kinnect. I've already told him he's not getting that. So not sure about Christmas... although he is starting to rumble about a BMX. He's not going to get one of those either.... so not sure.

missnappy we got ds's from skates.co.uk. Its a MADD MGP Team Edition VX2 stunt scooter and was £134 shock, but that's the one he has to have (they are popular here just now and a couple of his friends are getting them too). He is well aware of the cost and appreciates it.

Got 10% off with code SKATES12 and as it was over £100 free delivery.

There are models that are slightly, but not much less next model down is £109. Prices seem to be fixed the same everywhere for MGP scooters.

Stunt pegs were extra £10.

I'm buying mine an electric guitar and amplifier.

I must be insane and would like to take this opportunity to apologise to the neighbours sad

Guinness book of records and Ripley's Believe it or not books are always a firm favourite, OP.

Well between me and his father and his grandparents and his Great Grandma, he's having Skylanders Giants (from my folks), some Lego exoforce from me, pokemon black for his dsi (old version - cheap!) and Mario Galaxy 2 for the wii, pre-owned so also cheap. Plus ds2 can use that too.

I've got him and ds2 a set of much reduced Nerf guns, too, to share. (dart tag or something)
