Two. They interact with each other so they'll get bored much less quickly.

whizzbanghellokitty Wed 07-Nov-12 11:50:23

just so expensive

treas Wed 07-Nov-12 11:53:20

In my experience you may find it waste of money for the 4 y.o.

My dd was given one by her grandmother when she was 4. Unfortunately, she was too young for it and so was unable to appreciate it fully.

I've just had to buy 2. Have 6 year old twin girls and they both asked for them. Never considered them sharing one but as Caja says they interact with each other. I bought them from Smyths toy store and they were £49. Cheapest I'd found them in stock. Went in via Quidco and got 3% cashback and free delivery. Not much choice of colours in stock but it's the same everywhere

NONE! Don't do it, you will grow to hate them, they will haunt you day and night.

mum23girlys Wed 07-Nov-12 11:55:02

Agree with treas also. Might not be worth the money for your 4 year old however very difficult to buy for your 7 year old only when they've both asked for one.

not really the sort of thing they can share anyway

whizzbanghellokitty Wed 07-Nov-12 12:00:32

it is tricky

whizzbanghellokitty Wed 07-Nov-12 12:37:42

it is probably better that they share one then they can both look after it
then with the rest of the money will buy them something else to share

VirginiaDare Wed 07-Nov-12 12:45:32

haven't you asked this about 10 times now?

issiri Wed 07-Nov-12 12:50:35

Do either have a birthday not long after Christmas? Could you buy one, see how they get on just the one and if they want one each get for a birthday?

InNeedOfBrandy Wed 07-Nov-12 12:53:03

They had 3 for 2 in tescos so get that sell the 3rd and get back the money for the second.

2 is a sure free way to send yourself insane on Christmas morning.

I remember putting our furby in the microwave to shut it up - this was about 1998. Now I feel old.

Mrsjay Wed 07-Nov-12 12:55:46

they are evil they will breed and then eat you alive grin they scare me DDs used to turn itsself on in the middle of the night and talk she ended up putting it at the bottom of her toy basket, saying all that about t he evil buggers i would get 2 ,

Mrsjay Wed 07-Nov-12 12:56:27

- this was about 1998. Now I feel old.

ReindeerBollocks Wed 07-Nov-12 12:56:33

Damn that was supposed to read sure fire.

ReindeerBollocks Wed 07-Nov-12 12:57:30

It was my sisters MrsJay I was busy being a miserable teenager at the time grin.

Mrsjay Wed 07-Nov-12 12:58:33

whizzbanghellokitty Wed 07-Nov-12 13:39:33

lollilou Wed 07-Nov-12 14:18:40

One each I think would be better. No arguing.

think i will get them one of these each instead

NationalLottie Wed 07-Nov-12 15:33:53

I have the same issue and have just bitten the bullet and bought 2 and that means I will not buy other bits and bobs that would have added up to the same price, probably.

whizzbanghellokitty Wed 07-Nov-12 15:37:32

i have just bought 2 fijits instead

whizzbanghellokitty Wed 07-Nov-12 15:38:50
