Keep it for Christmas!

Just because it's free, doesn't mean a thing.

Christmas! Bloody hell.... DS1 had one a few years back and it cost us an arm and a leg shock

I have been known to put away all kinds of unwanted gifts and blush raffle prizes to recycle. X-Box is definitely a keeper.

Definitely Christmas.

He won't know, and if he does and thinks it's not a real present because it was free, then there are bigger problems afoot.

Going with the flow, Crossmyth for sure. Does your husband just want a sneaky go on it himself? wink

I would save it for xmas too, I definately wouldn't give him it now plus the money saved could go towards a couple of games or whatever smile

Definitely save it for Christmas. It's too big a gift for a child to get for no reason. The face that it was free means nothing.

Absolutely Christmas. I thought it was going to be a poxy tube of handcream or something!

trixymalixy Sat 25-Jun-11 12:51:24

Yanbu, I would do the same.

CherylWillBounceBack Sat 25-Jun-11 13:07:27

FFS. Will people stop calling it 'free' please? It wasn't free, they are just paying for it in installments.

SinicalSal Sat 25-Jun-11 13:09:37

Christmas for sure, no question.
