I have no idea, THEY have no idea. They do like lego and am wondering about hobbitt stuff but TBH they have tonnes of the stuff already. Stumped.

Remote control cars? They could race them. Possibly not the most inspired...but its a start. smile

Skylanders giants are top of every 9yo's list round here.

Was just going to suggest skylanders. I have a 9 year old boy and he has asked for that and a nerf gun.

Get them each a massive Nerf gun , wrap up loads of spare darts, and Bob is your Uncle. They can shoot each other till the darts run out.

Yes, mine also want more nerf guns!

I'm having the same trouble with a 9 year old girl. Except she knows what she wants; an iPad, iPod, iPhone... Seriously considering an iPad mini in the absence of any other idea although that's pretty much all she'll get as they're so expensive.
She's not into toys and too young for teenagery stuff.

I can think if a million things to get dd1 (14) and toddler dds though!

Hex Bugs?
Nerf Guns?

Another vote for skylanders giants (my 8 year old ss has asked for these, she's more into boys toys), also got her:

A light up globe
A remote control spider
Paper jamz guitar
Lots of books (Harry potter, Terry pratchet)
Skylanders calander

She's also asked for a nurf gun (but wont be getting one) smile and she likes the look of the lego monsters castle.

My DC got remote control helicopters at that age. They were a huge hit. You need to make sure they work on different airbands (is that the technical term?) or they can accidentally take control of each others, which believe me, isn't fun. But they had hours and hours of play with them. I was amazed. And then all their friends came round and wanted a go.

Get the best you can afford. The little £14.99 ones are too flimsy and break as soon as they hit a wall, which they do.

Do they have skateboards yet?
Good quality walkie-talkie sets?
If they are into music yet they could have an i-pod shuffle with their favourite tunes downloaded and a voucher to choose some more.

Thanks all for those ideas - I too am avoiding the expensive techno stuff and they got shuffles last year. Itunes vouchers good idea - could be fun spending.
