I am totally stuck, and the small amount of things she'd asked for I bought for her birthday just gone.

I need some inspiration! smile

I’m getting dd a kindle fire I think. Her stocking is full of Harry Potter things and other people are getting her the two new Harry Potter books, the nerf bow and arrow thing, a notebook, a mermaid blanket, pjs (always), a new towel (Harry Potter obvs), a light up globe. Can’t wait, she’s going to love it all.

DD 7 has asked for hatchimals collectables, hatchimals nursery, various Barbie stuff and playmobil

DS is having an ipad from us to replace his dead kindle.

Others getting Carcassone, times tables extension for Zombie maths, the Nerf gun that fires cars, audio CDs of the Faraway Tree books, new wet suit.

I have a 6 year old but she's asked for a playmobil cruise ship, lol big surprise, some books, a sylvanian lighthouse, jojo microphone and some scented colouring pens

My DS is nearly 7. He’s asked for playmobil, nerf gun, a fingerling, a glitter tattoo set, one of those nail art sets, a lip gloss maker and magic set or a joke set. As well as every single advert that comes on tv 😆 he hasn’t actually done his Santa list. He’s allowed to ask for 1 big present and four little presents but we do indulge more.
As little fillers I’ve get him two board games(pie face and say it don’t spray it) the illustrated version of Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban and I’m getting him the illustrated history of magic. We’ve also got some busy books for him and his sisters and will be getting some jigsaw puzzles. I go a bit mental at Christmas but always under a budget.

Our 7yr old is getting:

-Nexo Knight Fortrex
-Aftershock Earthquake lab
-Playmobil Ghostbusters car
-Star Wars Imperial Walker (Playskool Heros)
-Mouse Trap game
-star projector

He is also sharing a music maker instrument with his brother

FixItUpChappie Sun 12-Nov-17 22:13:49

this is a music maker or lap harp if interested

My DS is almost 7 (January) and so far I have got:

Remote control BB8 from Star Wars
Darth Vader light up figure
Star Wars bowl/plate set
New PJ's (Star Wars..funnily enough!)
Light sabre
Storm Trooper jumper
Crayola Star wars light up tracing pad

Am also going to be getting him a new Nerf gun and a lego set

Stocking wise so far:

Star wars top trumps
Yoda face flannel
Lego soap
Light up Xmas pen
Felt tip pens
Minion note book
Star Wars gloves
Star Wars pants

As you can guess he's a bit nuts for Star Wars this year! Last year it was all Space themed stuff.

In the Same boat dd just turned 8 and I bought her the things she wanted for b'day as wasn't much. She got neon science set ( had sparkle science last year). Elves Lego. Buddy ball and some clothes. So far kiddozoom watch and more lego for Xmas.

Misty9 Mon 13-Nov-17 15:10:27

Ds is getting a CD player and cds (Taylor swift and Katy Perry are his favourites currently!) and probably some more Lego kits. He and his younger sister will get a playmobil set between them for F.C. present. Extended family go a bit crazy so I’m determined to cut down on what we buy at least this year.

Misty9 Mon 13-Nov-17 15:11:12

Also I think he’s old enough for snap circuits now and he’d love them

BettysCandle Mon 13-Nov-17 15:42:08

DS has asked for a bike, guinness book of records, GBOF Gamers edition, and a giant gummy bear (cost me £30 ffs!).

We've also got him kinetic sand, slime time from Smiggle, a joke book, top trumps and bath bombs from Lush.

GoGoGazelle Mon 13-Nov-17 15:44:34

Kindle fire, lego, fingerling, stocking sponsored by Smiggle summer sale

MaryPoppinsPenguins Mon 13-Nov-17 16:53:17

Thanks everyone, lots of brilliant ideas 🤗

I forgot- also got him a fingerling. He didn't ask for one (has never mentioned it) but I'm sure he'll like it.

MaryPoppinsPenguins Tue 14-Nov-17 09:02:33

I really want to get one of those but I can't find one anywhere!

BettysCandle Tue 14-Nov-17 11:41:26

I got mine from The Entertainer. They had loads on the shelves when I went to collect smile

My dd 7 has asked for pretty much everything she's seen advertised 🙄
So far I've got her a wooden dressing table with some play make up & hair bits, Jojo siwa doll, headphones, book, cushion, pyjamas & bows, enchantimals playset, shopkins playset, kids sewing machine, fingerling playset with 2 monkeys (will be shared with her sister) and some bedroom accessories from Claire's. Think I'll get her the shopkins jet too & a smiggle voucher. She's also asked for a hover board & lol giant surprise but won't be getting those!

One of the best things about having no live TV is no toy adverts - ds doesn't know most of these toys exist.

He's getting a new bike and a big Lego set.

PrivateParkin Tue 14-Nov-17 12:55:21

Some ace ideas on here! My DS is getting Lego ninjago stuff, a Lego clock, Operation, personalized drawing pencils, giant remote controlled spider and now thanks to this thread a nerf bow and arrow.

Dd is just turned 8 and is mainly having everything Harry Potter themed
