Anyone else's DC asked Father Christmas for inexistent toys?

What are you going to do? Do you need to vent?

I have just spent and hour and a fucking half trying to fashion something out of paper mâché. It looks nothing like what DS has asked for and is going to be a clear give away because there's no way Santa can make something that looks so bad! It looks like something a toddler has smashed together. I never was any good at crafty shit.

Are you offering to fashion these for us Elf? Because I need 'a toy pen that's yellow and you pretend to write and then you go over it with a blue pen' WTF.

That's an invisible ink pen!

When we were children, my sister once asked for "A pair of wings which really fly". You could have fun with that one! fgrin

My seven year old will only believe santa is real if he brings her a real unicorn hmm

"I'd like a toy helicopter which you sit in and it flies. Not pretend to fly. Really fly"

Which does exist, I suppose, but it's called a real helicopter.

Outs self: He wants a mountain footpath level crossing for his brio set.

magic ink pens

HarassedElf Fri 15-Dec-17 09:17:05

loving these grin

Any riding stables near you Walkerbean who'd dress up a pony? But that one is easy to deflect because Father Christmas does not bring live animals.

Not quite so bad here ds is desperate for Harry Potter Lego.Which you can't buy new anymore except e bay at extortionate collectors prices.I considered buying a second hand set I could afford of e bay but the boxes are opened etc and clearly used and I can't think of a story to explain

HarassedElf Fri 15-Dec-17 09:18:31

It fell off the sleigh and got damaged!

ShowMeTheElf Fri 15-Dec-17 09:18:55

paint this level crossing

HarassedElf Fri 15-Dec-17 09:19:38

One of the elves left it out in the snow and the box got wet and had to be thrown away.

Leave it built up under the tree?

HarassedElf Fri 15-Dec-17 09:20:44

That I have upstairs. But...mountain level crossings do not have barriers. I thought it was the easiest Santa request ever until I discovered he is expecting the mountain to come with it!

clairethewitch70 Fri 15-Dec-17 09:21:14

Can you work with this?

DS informed me this morning that he dreamt last night of his ideal Christmas present - a "sweet cheese truck". When asked to elaborate, he explained very patronisingly that he meant "a truck that opens up and has sweet cheese inside". fconfused

@Notmyideamovingon buy a Harry Potter trunk and put HP lego inside it instead of using the original boxes.
