The figures are quite little but they're very detailed and nicely made, IMO. Mine play hours with them.

ds liked the compass from John Lewis we got him last year.

We have inflatable guitars/globes and silly glasses lined up too.

Jokey trick things like a finger chopped also hits

Top trumps or another card game like Uno or Phase 10.

Have electric toothbrushes for my 3 this year

Often do pants/socks/juice bottle.

Head torch, magnifying glass, microscope ( natural history one) , cap gun, nerf jolt gun, some crystals or rocks, UNO

For dd1 I am getting a set of dice from www.theteachingwindmill there are different numbered dice plus function dice. Hoping to make up our own dice dudes games for a fraction of the price. Free postage too.

Also thinking of getting a prism. Already have mini fig, mini art canvas from the works, some other craft stuff. Might make reindeer soap flannels too.

I was in Hobbycraft today, they have loads of stuff like mini foil scrapers, mini Fimo sets (robots etc), Melissa and Doug stained glass window colouring books, suncatchers etc. Lots under £5 and stuff boys would like - robots, cars, dinos, wildlife.

I was in SportsDirect the other day and picked up a little plastic football boot filled with jelly toys for my football-mad son. Two or three quid I think it was.
