Preferably that I can get off Amazon..

I've got my 8yo a big present (mini ipad) so only need stocking fillers really. Haven't got anything really for my 4 year old daughter. Her list didn't really help me.

Thanks all - what's a good starting point for Pokemon? He loves playing with the app, but doesn't have any toys/cards etc

snowgirl1 Mon 19-Dec-16 12:27:31

For 4 year old (nearly 5 year old) DD Christmas and birthday (haven't decided what is going to be for Xmas and what for birthday)

Couple of bits of chocolate

I'm going to try and get some glow sticks too as she loves those.

I'm torn between thinking it's too much (but it is to be split between Christmas & birthday and I'm including stuff I would have bought her anyway like socks, skirts, neckwarmer, hat) and thinking she needs another toy or game or something to do

PassTheMead Mon 19-Dec-16 15:29:35

the pokemon card game is quite good, you can buy decks in most toy shops/tescos etc. Plushes and action figure toys are quite easy to come by now too. Again most toy shops and amazon. If he has a ds, pokemon sun or moon is the newest game out.

SenseiWoo Mon 19-Dec-16 15:40:26

Sylvanian families
Kit for making chocolates
Books, inc My Little Pony Annual (2 for 1 on annuals in WHSmith)
Little mirror with drawers for her bedroom (Amazon had a fair selection) as she does her own hair a lot now (yay!) and hogs my mirror.
More that I can't remember.
Fancy dress outfits go down well chez Woo.

Grandma is getting them lovely new dressing gowns (£12 M&S) as part of their present.

DS is getting Nexo Knights, fact books so he can torment us with his superior knowledge (a favourite pastime), e.g. Top Ten of Everything, an Ezra from Star Wars Rebels figurine (£5 in TK Maxx, huzzah!), more Power Rangers Dino Zords than you can shake a stick at (bought cheaply over a period of months from various places) etc.

To share they are getting a camera attachment for their old Leapster game thingy, and a set of all the Thunderbirds vehicles.
