Aw, get her a ferret. They're fucking adorable. Little faces! Awwww.

Toy tortoise, toy puppy? How old's your dd?

Mine haven't really ever asked for anything that whacky. We did get dd two kittens one year though - they are my very special boys and love me best grin

When my eldest DS was 3, he asked for a 'New leg for Granny'

My Mum had DVT and needed an operation grin

My daughter wants "every item of clothing you can buy in leopard print, including a onesie." I will be spending the time between now and Christmas extolling the pleasures of new board games...

Clemett, is your daughter channeling her inner Bet Lynch?

I had a pet ferret, it was adorable.

when DS was 2... very articulate for his age... asked for various 'normal' things, including and guitar and then finished off with "and the letter A". Ok, right. Will just order one of them from Amazon.

This year (6) we have nothing between Bin Weevil cards at 75p and a Firebolt at about £160... and DT's who are going to be 3 aren't yet as clued up as their brother was a 2 so don't even know what Christmas is!

clemett is your DD Julie Goodyear? grin

DD age 2 has just announced that she wants tissues for Christmas.

clemetteattlee Sat 20-Oct-12 22:40:50

At 7 she is a princess of tack. if its not leopard print it is an obsession with hairstyles, makeup and high heels. Where did I go wrong (handwringing emoticon)?!

DD (10) wants a snake or a lizard and her ears pierced. No chance of any of those. But I think she might manage to come up with a revised list of DVDs, Lego, Monster High crap figures etc.

DS, on the other hand, wants to "become a Jedi" for Christmas, so that will be simpler confused

My DD asked for a beehive (with bees) when she was 9.

I told her they wouldn't sell me one as 9 year olds aren't allowed to own beehives. grin She hasn't mentioned it since.

Last year my son wanted Jaffa cakes for Christmas. He's a teenager.

He got them, and then (of course) told everyone on Facebook. Missing out the other stuff he got at the same time...

Corn snakes make brilliant pets. They're easy and rewarding to care for.

Last year, ds1's list (he was 6) was short...
1. To be made a real wizard so he could do real magic tricks and spells (think more along the lines of turning his little brother into a tortoise if he was annoying him or conjuring up vats of chocolate out of nothing for dinner, rather than guessing which card you chose from the pack or making a rabbit appear from a hat)

2. To be lord high master of the universe in charge of everybody and everything (would mean that he could choose when to have a bath and set his own bedtime, not eat his greens and make sure that everybody in the world stopped being nasty to each other and that no aliens invaded - certainly not short of ambition but interesting to see where his priorities lay grin)

3. A new pair of swimming goggles

Needless to say he got a toy magic wand with a light on the end which was quite fun, a bag of choc coins that he was allowed to eat whenever he wanted so long as his teeth were brushed last thing before bed and a new set of goggles grin. He did get some other presents too!

DD1 (8) wants an aerial for her TV as she cannot get to hear any of her programmes for the little ones fighting.

Christmas used to stress me out completely because ds2 never chose anything that actually existed. He always wanted the reall bumblebee car or the real iron man suit etc. DS1 one had to sit down with him and the Argos catalogue and make him choose something real ( he insisted Santa could bring anything when I tried). He has very boring requests now...and it makes me a little sad sad

Aspiemum2 Sat 20-Oct-12 22:49:21

Dd1 always ends her list with " and a multipack of wotsits!" Ds1 has a very expensive list asking for every games console under the sun. You would think at 11, nearly 12 he would understand the phrase "you have enough consoles"

They do stink a bit, aye. What about rats? We have four girlie rats, they are lovely and don't smell.
