DD is invited to a 7 year olds party and his mum suggested an army themed present. Am looking to spend £10 at the most, anyone seen anything that he is unlikely to have already?

Have looked on Ebay but nothing jumped out.

dried food (camping stores)

Dried food? Really? Would a 7 year old boy want to play with that?

Binoculars is a good idea, but aren't they a bit more than a tenner? wink

he's got some kid's stuff I've bought a few things from him. The T-shirts are good value.

maybe a good novelty thing? I bought some dried icecream and fruit (astronaut stuff) at xmas from hawkins for my nephew (he was 8 at the time)

How about something from the HM Armed Forces range. Ds1 is 6 and would love any of these - particularly the Utility Belt on the 2nd page!

Thanks Hana, I see what you were getting at and I did ask for something he might not have grin. Stinky the Toysrus stuff is just a little bit too dear, he is just a school friend, so it really is a tenner max.

Curiousmama, I reckon I could find something on there, thanks.

How about a camouflage net?

Am liking this best so far.

Maybe with this aswell, depending on how much it is.

2nd link again....

You're welcome, hope the grenade isn't too dear?

Don't reckon it will be, looks like just a piece of plastic. If it is, it will be just the water bottle grin

Hana, just realised that your suggestion of a flask is exactly what I am going for. Thanks grin

Have you emailed him? He's really nice to deal with.

Not yet, will do over the weekend. Is p&p low? not checked yet.

I think it'll depend on what you buy? You could always ring and haggle wink
