And he said a hat.

What sort of hat?

An elf hat.

He's 3.5. I guess it's the sort of thing he imagines FC would find easy to come by.

Sweet, but I've clearly spent too much sad grin

Anyone else had any cute and unexpected requests?

I bought DS a cute elf hat from Next if you were looking for one.

One year I think when DS was three he asked for chocolate coins. I went a bit mad and bought every type of chocolate coin London had to offer.

My DD only asked for snap back cap last year smile

My DD is 2 and is asking for a big horsey, so I'm hoping the rocking type will do grin

Four year old ds wants a gingerbread man as big as a big mans face from his nana.

Mil was cracking up telling us his request.

Dd wants a yoyo. Shes only just three so I cant imagine she has the capability to operate one, but Ive got one never the less. She even specified a lady bird one (god bless Wilkinsons!!)

DD (5 in a few weeks) has asked for a cuddly Santa, a cuddly penguin and Jaffa cakes....!!!!

Dd asked for a large cardboard box last year. She was 7, so well out of toddler-stage, and the FC we went to see was obviously somewhat perplexed that she didn't want anything in it.

She was delighted with her box on Christmas morning smile

Ds2 Is 3 and has asked for the campsite entrance barrier from the playmobil ad. Playmobil were fantastic and sent me the spare parts numbers so I could order from their site!

One of mine wants coloured socks, and the other wants a drink of chocolate milk.

Apparently the nursery knows of the chocolate milk request. Any day now I expect to be taken aside and told about the help they can offer if we're struggling this year fgrin fblush

DS is 10 and wants a CamelBak water carrier thing. I must confess I hanker a little for the days of yo-yo's and elf hats, when present buying involved proper toys <tragic sigh>

Sootgremlin Wed 19-Nov-14 14:13:23

Thanks guitar girl, I thought I was finished but think the elf hat will have to be done, and probably one for baby sister as well!

These are lovely, campsite barrier, so specific grin

Makes you realise how little of the excitement is really about the presents and more about the general anticipation and fun...cardboard boxes, chocolate santas, coins and milk.

Yes, fantasticmrsfox, a reminder to cherish these times when they have simple pleasures, but there is something quite nice about a water carrier request at 10 too, practical and active smile

My 3yo DS has told everyone that he wants Father Christmas to bring him a "poo poo doggy". Lovely. Can't wait to see father christmas' face in a few weeks when he tells him that!

BeaLola Wed 19-Nov-14 16:39:31

my Ds then aged 5 asked for a Father Christmas hat - a proper one eg the one with the bobble !

We got a beautiful one from Toys R Us - red velvet with a pom pom & he loved it .

This year its a rubix cube. Am not looking forward to the day when its money or a PC (!)

RunawayReindeer Wed 19-Nov-14 17:01:25

Dd would like Minnie mouse.

Sounds easy doesn't it? But no, she would like "the actual Minnie mouse so she can sleep in my bunk bed with me" me: where will your sister sleep??
Dd (whispers) "we could put her in a bin bag out with the rubbish in the morning.

I was shock

123rd Wed 19-Nov-14 17:02:49

My DS has in previous years asked for. Back scratcher and another year a round plastic tray. Easily pleased!!

DuelingFanjo Wed 19-Nov-14 17:04:27

DS who will be 4 just before Christmas sang a song the other day while throwing stones into a puddle - it went something like this...

'Father Christmas I want Poo and wee wees and bums and poo in your head and weee and winkies and a fancy pants toothbrush'

My Dsis (aged about 6) once asked for a cellotape dispenser and Dad bought her a very smart one from an office supplies shop.
Then as an added bonus he promised to always keep it stocked up with celletape.

For the next 2 years every craft project was cellotape based. Where other kids would made e.g: a plane by cellotaping cardboard wings onto a toilet role tube, Dsis would sculpt a plane entirely from cellotape shock
She developed a special technique of folding the cellotape in on itself and then wrapping more cellotape around it to form magnificent cellotape masses in different sizes and shapes. grin

It worked out quite expensive for Ddad in the end.

Have just asked dd age 2 and she would like "a belt". I asked what kind and she said "a big gold belt"

i tried to probe "but if you could have anything from father Christmas, what would you like?"

"him!"
"who? Father Christmas?"
"yes mummy! I just want him!"

what am i gonna do? Lol

When DS2 was 3 or 4, he announced that all he wanted for Christmas was a log lorry. Amazingly I found one for about £3 in a Poundstretcher type shop, full of plastic logs and everything. It was a huge hit.

We did wonder whether he'd been watching our Twin Peaks dvds.

Last year dd was just 3 and asked for a bunch of bananas. This year she's asked for a pink matchbox car - these are not easy to come by.

iloveholidays Wed 19-Nov-14 18:02:17

DD2 asked for a yellow father Christmas last year grin needless to say I didn't manage to find one!

LapsedTwentysomething Wed 19-Nov-14 18:53:47

DD (4) wants a diamond, a spider (she hates spiders!) and an accordion. Eclectic.

Enchancia Wed 19-Nov-14 19:54:34

Ooh, lapsed20something, my DD (also 4) also wants 'a diamond'. Have no idea what she has in mind (I'm guessing/hoping it's not an actual real diamond!). Any idea where your DD's request came from / what she's expecting?!

BabyDubsEverywhere Wed 19-Nov-14 19:57:48

When DS1 was 3 he asked for 'one big sock'
He couldn't understand why Santa had bought him just one big sock (a stocking!) the year before so he would like the other one to go with it now please grin
