Stuffed Unicorn
Unicorn snow globe

We usually buy much more, but we've moved into a fixer upper and have no space. And actually, they usually get bored of opening stuff and it all gets forgotten by Boxing Day. I am worried it's not very equal though...

BellaGoth. I would build it before hand. Those things take ages to build.

The2ndSpartacus Sat 17-Dec-16 06:18:37

There's a lot of playmobile stuff here - Is it kinda like Lego? Off to Google.

DS (12) is getting:
a keyboard (musical, not computer)
A wacom tablet
Instant camera and film

And stocking fillers which is chocolate, a new diary, books, art pencils, string lights for his room, new phone case.

DS (2y.o) is getting:
A balance beam and crash mat
Toot toot garage
A couple of new puzzles
New books
And stocking fillers are chocolate, Bing cutlery, little bing/go jetters figures.

Fighting hard the urge to twitch. Watched a programme the other day where a lady bought her children about 90+ presents each for Christmas and it made me want to cancel consumerist Christmas and handcarve some wooden toys for gifts instead, but then I remembered I can't carve stuff. grin But it's enough to stop me twitching and buying more!

Tanfastic Sat 17-Dec-16 06:25:19

Ds 8

A cheap laptop
Fungus amungus stuff
Lego (Star Wars and a caravan).
Star Wars characters from Disney Shop.
Guinness world records & Ripleys Believe it or not books.
Dan TDM bits and you tube heroes.
A hottie grin
Sweet grabber machine.
Stocking bits (boxers, sweets toiletries etc).

BellaGoth Sat 17-Dec-16 06:59:08

FourKids it says 180 minutes on the box! Do they think I don't know that means 3 hours?

The trouble is it's HUGE and we'll have nowhere to hide it once it's built, so we'll have to do it after the children are asleep on Christmas Eve.

And should we wrap the box, or try and wrap the built set?

Sorry for the thread derail OP!

BellaGoth. Build it, wrap it in a duvet and tie a bow around it. Unless you think they'd have fun helping? Even now when it's the holidays and we lug it all up from the cellar they all disappear until I've built it confused
