My dn (5) has asked for a telescope, another dn (10) has asked for unicorn stuff, and my friends dd (3) has asked for a robotic dog

What's the weirdest request you've had so far this year

I asked for a car battery and a car battery charger for my birthday once. That would probably be my husbands. He dreads being asked what he got the wife grin

Are any of those weird OP? confused

I don't think any of those requests are weird OP...?

They are compared to the requests I normally get

My Christmas shopping is normally pretty boring

A real live penguin which would live in the bath. Dd was devastated when she didn’t get one! But Santa doesn’t do livestock!

When DS1 was 3 he desperately wanted a backscratcher. He was so excited when he unwrapped it grin

This year my 12-year old DS wants a foam pit for the garden so he can jump from our roof and somersault into it. Last year, he wanted a flying suit. I’ll let you guess how many times I’ve visited A&E in the last 12 years.

A ladder for 2yo ds2. Compromised with a small wooden ladder that you buy to put in a birdcage. He was delighted and still has it now 4 years on.

Plasters for 3yo ds1.

My kids are weird

Love this thread!
So far I have a request for a tube of pink smarties and a marmalade making kit.

Fueledwithfairydustandgin Tue 24-Oct-17 08:13:05

I must be weird because I bought DS2 a little ladder without him asking for one because he always had ladder envy when workmen came

The only thing my then 2 year old wanted one year was “a pair of scissors in a box”! We had got her (older) cousin a manicure set so I think that is what she wanted. No way was I getting her one of these as she was very accident prone but she was quite happy with a pair of plastic scissors in a spectacle case!

My 3yo wants a pink and purple glittery yoyo. Simple request, but difficult to find!

My 7yo DD hasn't said what she wants, but she has said she doesn't want lots of 'stuff'. She won't elaborate on that thoughconfused

My brother once asked for a "Faberge Egg"

One of my nephews asked Grandma (my mum) for a Nerf Gun one year, and in a weak moment mum said yes.

Mum normal would never agree to such a request, preferring more quality toys (made of wood or educational) or Lego or trains.

All other four grandchildren piled in and immediately requested the same.

It is still known in our family as ‘the year Grandma bought everyone Nerf guns’.

I would love my son to ask for something bizarre just to add to this thread! He would just like lego...

I took my nursery class yo see Santa one year... one little girl was very shy and quiet. Santa of course singled her out and asked what she wanted for Christmas... a karaoke machine! Bless her!

One year my dad asked for a jigsaw... I got him a puzzle... He meant the tool lol

All DS wanted when he was 3 was a bowl of crisps.
