My two daughters (7 and 10) spent the day with my mil and had a great time. MIL took them to see my sil and their baby cousin who is two. They came home with a humongous didgeridoo that sil apparently didn't have space for! DD1 is now playing it with great enthusiasm and gusto. Would it be bad of me to get sil's son some very noisy things? Maybe a drum kit, or something electronic where you can't turn off the sound or take out the batteries?

It's compulsory. My brother still regrets buying my DS a keyboard for his 2nd birthday as he now has children of his own. I get them noisy shit every.single.year. With batteries.

He hates me grin

Moon sand would work too grin

How close to 3 is your nephew? ToysRUs are selling drum kits for 3+ and I think they're half price.

I got one for my son when he was 2 and he loved it. It makes a constant meep meep meep meep meep meepidy meep meep meep meep noise in 4/4 time which you don't mind at first. But I swear you get an eye twitch in the end and he loved it so much it couldn't be hidden or batteries removed.

Wrap it up with glitter too.

Get him those toot toot bastard car things - loud, annoying and just for extra kicks they like to sing by themselves in the middle of the night causing you to utterly shit yourself grin

Years ago my parents bought my nephew (then a toddler) an articulated lorry toy that was complete with air breaks, running engine and air horn noises - as well as others. The only way to get the bloody thing to 'sleep' was not to touch it for at least 2 minutes. Can you imagine him leaving it alone long enough over Christmas? No, and he didn't!!

As noisy as possible when they're toddlers, and then toys with lots of small pieces, such as Polly Pockets when they're a little older!

Some fantastic suggestions, thank you all. Not sure if I can beat the sheer surprise of an actual didgeridoo but as long as it's noisy it's all good =)

Get them be if those horrific be-bop things. Pull it, twist it, shout it, bop it Aaaaagh.

LineyReborn Sun 25-Oct-15 22:29:55

Get them one of those

Young boys are very partial to hexbugs. They're great fun. And the track is compulsory, because they're not as noisy without it. Unless they fall down the back of the sofa, while switched on.

Lucky ducks game. The quacking drives you demented. Plus it's not as obvious as a drum kit. You can then claim ignorance.

My brother has spent years winding my kids (age 29 and 9) up, though his girlfriend always threatened a drum kit they never got one

He now has a 2 year old who I bought a keyboard for. I'm thinking Play Doh for Christmas grin

I do remind them any toys of DS2 can be passed the their DD

Try a Zube Tube - links below - I've still got one hanging around here from a few decades ago. My lad used to like placing one end on his bedroom floor and howling through it whenever we had unwanted unsuspecting visitors - worked a treat it did!

....Oh, and did I say they are Reeeeally noisy?

2pandasandapig Sun 25-Oct-15 22:42:31

My friends and I always try and out do each other with the "awful for adults" presents - keyboards, playdoh, moon bastard sand, water pipes for playing with in the bath, not to mention all manner of noisy cars, lorrys etc brilliant!! wink

Get him a god awful bloody furby! I hate the dam things, and DD1 has two!! You so much as move by them and they start chattering away (some times you can be sat perfectly still on the sofa watching a horror movie and the evil thing starts spouting gibberish from the toy box!!)
Also...there's no off switch ....

Penguin race, I guarantee that fucking music will have them twitching within a day.

One of my son's friends loves it so much I hide the fucking penguins when he comes over to play.

I forgot to mention the candy grabber, dear god, it plays very loud over the top fairground music, the 'friend' who bought it last Christmas laughed, no, cackled when she gave it to me and said it will drive you infuckinsane, she wasnt wrong.

She had filled it with sweets and little plastic balls, her husband kept playing with it before she wrapped it up, and she said she lost her rag with him for playing with it so much because the music was so irritating.

My BF got us this dog thing you could drag along on a lead, and when you did the dogs went (in a tune) woof woof woof woof woof woof woooooof wooooof wooof, woof woooof wooof woof. And as the batteries started to die, it would randomly play this at any given moment (sounding sadder and sadder and more and more echo-y). Sadly, she hasn't had children, but we've brought her a LOT of very bad wine since.

My recommendation is something the whole family can play and enjoy together!

My sister and I do this to one another every year....we take great joy in giving one another's kids masses of nasty sweets and craft kits with billions of parts. grin Kids think it's great of course!

Get him some silly songs children's CD's. They're catchy and will get stuck in his head.

Include a pack of stickers with it. grin

A friend bought ds1 a toy tractor which chugs along, plays old macdonald and has animals which, if you put them in the right place, make the appropriate noise. That was revenge for the fifi and the flowertots musical tv. Fifi was by far the most annoying. When we eventually got rid of the tractor as the kids broke it, different friends bought another one unwittingly for ds2.

It is so the done thing to try and outdo each other with the most annoying or noisy presents for young relatives.
