No clue what to buy DC...what are you buying DD4 and DS6?

Please help? I'm already being hounded by family as to what they should buy DC for Christmas. My two love arts and crafts and drawing. My DD is into dolls, but we have lots of doll stuff. My DS is getting over a dinosaur obsession, now waning. His favourite toy at the moment is the easel. We have stacks of arts and crafts stuff.

I suspect my DD might like something animal related - she likes rabbits, cats and horses. My son likes marbles and lego. Any suggestions gratefully received! We tried Playmobil last year - don't think they ever went near it after Christmas Day. First world problems....

I know you say you have lots of art stuff but Djeco art/craft sets and
Aquarellum paint sets are rather special. They have lots of themes so you are bound to find something to suit your kids' tastes.

What about Kapla blocks or Magnatiles for both kids?

Have you got a marble run?

My dd4 is getting octonaughts, she likes sylvanian families too.
Ds is getting a marble run with a lift type thing so they go as well as done and Jurassic world Lego.

I have a dd4 who is getting a bike, a Lottie doll and clothes (, Barbie doll and wardrobe (latter two cheap courtesy of the bargain thread), a bloody design a friend doll and books. It's very doll heavy. I might get some aquabeads for the stocking.

We have it already but she loves kinetic sand. Would yours like it?

For your DD what about a My First Sticky Mosaic? There's a pony version

Oh good ideas! About to ebay a load of Octonauts stuff (much to my sadness, it was wonderful seeing them so excited about underwater creatures).

Magnatiles and kapla blocks look great! Jurassic park lego great idea also! This is fab! smile

DS is 6 and is getting a trials push bike and new helmet from us and a full size keyboard from Santa, with a microphone, headphones, stand, music book etc to go with it, plus his stocking of course. Last year we went for quality over quantity and it was sooo nice to not have to look at a massive pile and wonder where to put it!

Oh and books, you can't forget books! I've got DS the first 2 Harry Potter books.

Oh yeah (sorry I keep remembering more) he's newly aircraft obsessed and his grandad fixes them so he's getting his first airfix sets (red arrows and Tornado).

DD4 is getting duplo and lego junior. There are some fab pony ones, also melissa and doug horse stables, where you can write the name of the horses above their box!
She is also getting a cheap DS and some age appropriate games, as she covets her big brothers

DS7 (in aug) is getting a Wii U,Games for that, Pokemon things, Batman Lego and some other bits and bobs, but he is very video game orientated. He loves animals too, so books about them, fiction and non fiction, will keep him happy for hours
