Ok, we have £80 to spend on DC, split between the 3 of them, do you think it is wrong to spend most of it on DD as the boys are too yound to care and would be happy with a box and the wrapping paper??

Go for it!

Like they're going to know how much stuff costs.

snigger Tue 21-Oct-08 22:27:08

How old are the boys?

Can you substitute quality with quantity? And sugar? grin

Get her something cheaper. That is a nutso amount to spend on a doll, even if you have £200 to spend.

I think YOU like the doll. Play fair!

Twims Tue 21-Oct-08 22:28:47

So they're just getting 1 present each - think your dd would prefer several smaller less expensive presents.

emkana Tue 21-Oct-08 22:29:28

How old is dd? Are you sure she will appreciate the doll as much as you think she will?

LadyOfRoffle Tue 21-Oct-08 22:30:08

Goodness me, that is one pricey doll! How old are they?

codtrolfreaky Tue 21-Oct-08 22:30:19

isnt the idea you have rider and horse.... otherwise why not just a nice (but less expensive doll? dont think you have to divide strictly equally unless dd is of age to notice any huge disparity and as long as dss are really too little to care!

If thats all you have i would buy a cheaper doll! Then you could get more (cheaper) toys!

sleepy contrary to what the others say i would get dd the doll
the boys are too young to know

emkana Tue 21-Oct-08 22:36:09

I think if she is pony-mad there are far better things you can buy for less money.

mabanana Tue 21-Oct-08 22:37:10

these dolls are very beautiful but less than half the price

Agree you hardly need to spend anything on the little ones, just enough to show your four year old that FC has been and loves them all equally etc.

Does she have a "Baby Born" doll? If so you can get a horse riding outfit to fit her. A lot cheaper than the other doll! (we actually bought DD a Baby born doll at a boot fair for 99p! DD loves it just the same!smile

Tomsk Tue 21-Oct-08 22:45:33

and there's a baby born horse that the doll can ride on! Woolworths are doing 3 for 2 on toys, you could get her both and something free for ds1!

I'd worry though that she wouldn't actually love it as much as you think she will.

I think four is still too young to appreciate dolls in that way.

misdee Tue 21-Oct-08 22:48:16

how much for a doll??!!!

tesco are doing big packs of balls for about £4. like the sort you get in ball pools. get a couple of those, a cheap paddling pool and your ds's will have a whale of a time!!!

wouldn't she get much more play value out of something like this? I mean how much can you actually do with a doll?

NotAnOtter Tue 21-Oct-08 22:52:59

am i the only one who does not think it extortionate?
we are not well off but for a good quality toy i expect it to cost a bit

it will last and that is important to a child

Now I can see the appeal in that horse grin
problem is it's a baby on a horse when it should be a girl IYSWIM.

Still would have lived that horse when I was a LO!

Prefer the ballerina to the horse doll though!
