Hello KerryMumchingOnEyeballs I have the same problem but looking for ideas for my 9 year old daughter. Does your older boy have a tv in his bedroom or a mobile phone? I take it they both have bikes? What about an mp3 player or i pod for your older son. My son is 7 he is really into lego and he also likes tranformers. Hope you find something.
Not sure what to give my 6 yr old son. No electronics though, as he is not interested. Have you got Gormiti in Irland? They are all the rage here in Italy (but ds not that bothered either ). He'd love a pair of sky though.
I'm getting my 2 a wii - from what everyone says they seem to be fab for the whole family. They won't be getting much else after that tho!!! My ds (6) is well into Ben 10, Gormiti and all theusual nonsense boys like so I'll get him some little bits with those characters on. For their birthdays next year I'm going to get them tickets for Eurodisney then pay for 4 - 5 nights in a mobile with Canvas (using my tesco vouchers) on a campsite 20 mins away from Disney! Cheapish birthday pressie but an idea you could maybe use for Xmas? They'll be getting a Disney holiday for their birthdays!
I'm in the same boat with 11yo and 7 yo DS's. DS2 is talking about a trampoline. Apparantly Nintendo are bringing out a Star Wars game for Wii complete with light sabre - so that will definitely be on the list.
