Here, it was the 12p pocket packs of tissues from Home Bargains and their own nail polishes (Frozen ones from Poundland).

They had socks/knicks/choc/sports bottle and a mini lego set as well.

Ds2 (2) loved his apple, satsuma and chocolate coins although got a little confused. He put the wrapped gifts aside, took a huge bite out of the apple, then the satsuma (complete with skin!), pulled a face then bit into a chocolate coin (with the wrapper on!).
He was much happier once the satsuma was peeled and coins unwrapped and sat there and ate them then opened the actual presents!

A dustbin lorry I got for my youngest, he was so excited he said car! That is a big moment, he has severe speech and language delay and doesn't generally talk.

My older son loved his Toot Toot Monkey but was generally delighted with everything in his stocking.

Flicky paper lasers, cost 55p each. I loved them as a child and am very happy my DCs also think they are fab.
The head torch for 99p has also kept DS happy for hours.

MrsCakes, what are flicky paper lasers?

We had finger lights last year, most are still going strong! Dd1 uses them as torches for reading in bed after dd2 has gone to sleep grin

They'll come in very handy when the power goes out (inevitable).

lucysmam, they are a streamer of paper wound onto a stick. Hold the stick, flick your wrist and the streamer shoots out for a metre or two.
Demo on this youtube clip.

Thanks for the link MrsCakes, I think dd2 might cause someone an injury with them atm but will have a look see if they are on amazon to add to a wishlist so I don't forget about them.

Mine clutched hers to her and said " Oh mummy this is a moment I will remember for ever" grin I had to point out huge bag to her she had not even noticed it!
