Sorry I pressed post too soon!

Ds1 is giving her a doh Vinci set.
Ds2 is giving her sweets (intended for Santa sack but ds1 found them so had to re think!)

I'm not sure what the rest of our family is getting her, apart from my dad because I ordered it and it's the Cinderella movie dress.

Some good ideas! Thank you all.

I've paid more attention than usual to the "ooh I like that" type comments when they're watching telly this weekend grin. Usually I just sort of go "uh-huh, that's nice".

Books are sorted - my dad has bought them a large-ish selection between them so I think more will be overkill for the moment.

I'm on with dress up dresses (Snow White and new Cinderella).

I think I'm going to go for play d'oh for the youngest (possibly the sparkly one I spied earlier) and a Shopkins set if I can find one they don't already have between them.

And for the oldest, Minecraft StoryMode (think that's what it is?) and a craft set of some sort. She likes the look of the Sew Cool machine but I'm not overly sure after reading reviews and asking on here about them.

I should have change left for onesies, stocking fillers and some christmassy sweets I think. Maybe even a dress each if I'm careful with it.

They've asked for a WiiU as a joint present but I'm still undecided about that one. I thought they were handheld thingys but they seem to be consoles & I'm not entirely convinced having one between them won't lead to huffing and puffing.
