In terms of pressies my DS (4) loved his Tank Engine umbrella much more than his LeapPad !
My dad was over the moon with his microwave slippers (I did think that he might refuse to wear them !)

Can we also have "What was the biggest disappointment" too - I'd vote for the Candy Land game - I could have made a better one up !

Penicillin, paracetamol and ibuprofen

DSs loved the Kid Knex DS2 (3.75) got. Played with more than the "proper" Knex DS1 (5.75) got.

Not sure for DD as she seems to like everything she has a lot, and some things she is only just getting round to exploring. The main bits she has played with most so far are her VTech VSmile, Leappad, AquaDraw, ELC Palace, Easel, Cabbage Patch Kid and her Belle dress. Plus lots more really.

Spiderman underpants....(for DS 3.10).

For DS (4.5), definitely the Peter Pan outfit. For DD (1.5) the velcro fruit and other tea set stuff

Boneless turkey breast instead of full bird. No leftovers to think of things to do with.

oh did you mean toys?

erm.... nephew loved geomag. DD loves her new baby Annabel.

DS2 (5)'s big hit was a loop-the-loop car track - £6.50 from Tescos!

(Did you get a loop-the-loop car track Coddy? I seem to remember you talking about one. Did it go down well?)

DS1 was best pleased with his £10 WHS voucher which he spent in the sales on stacks and stacks of half price junk

Flatmouse - you are identical to me! Peter Pan outfit was worn all day by my 4½ ds and my 22 month dd prefered a tub of plastic tea things over everything else!

BubblesDeVere Tue 04-Jan-05 11:05:12

DD2, Bella Ballerina Bar
DD1, Megasketcher & talking Cat in The Hat

Gobbledigook Tue 04-Jan-05 11:08:36

Quite predictably, for both ds1 and ds2 it's the additions to the Thomas train track!!! Don't actually know why I bothered with anything else.

codswallop Tue 04-Jan-05 11:08:44

oha nd the plastic pizza

marialuisa Tue 04-Jan-05 11:11:34

Groovy girls stuff is loved (as expected) but she was ecstatic with some anatomy/neuroscience/physiology colouring books (you know the kind medical students have) from her godfather. She's not yet 4 and obsessed with brains and bones....I'm not worried, honest.

Gobbledigook Tue 04-Jan-05 11:14:09

ML - I've got a Physiology Colouring Book from my student days (you'll be surprised to hear my degree was in Physiology and pharmacology!).

Loved it too and I was in my early 20's!! Might dig it out again actually as there were def pages I didn't get to!

emmatmg Tue 04-Jan-05 11:29:52

Wow, I like the sound of them.......colouring in for grown up, excellent!

Favs in our house.
Dh- Timewaster letters book.
Ds1-Terrain twister is good, excellent on water.
Ds2-Micro scooter was HUGE hit, and small lego basket ball.
Ds3-ELc wooden car thingy prob the fav but so many bits and bots it's hard to say.

They all got far too much so it's really hard to say for sure.

iota Tue 04-Jan-05 11:32:36

Hotwheels formula fuellers, digital scaletrix and Need for Speed underground - that goes for dh as well as the ds's

marialuisa Tue 04-Jan-05 11:36:55

Luckily DH is able to help her out with names etc. I don't know my tibia from my radius!

emmatmg Tue 04-Jan-05 11:39:52

Where are they from marialuisa?

I'd love some, might curb my MN addiction

ds: tv and dvd player although not seen much of him

dd (2): Little people house from auntie and Happyland house from us together with Happy Land train set. Played with them constantly. Baby Annabel which she said she wanted so badly has hardly been touched.

colditzmum Tue 04-Jan-05 12:06:23

Large box of matchbox-type cars - 10 quid, and it's the only thing he plays with.

northerner Tue 04-Jan-05 12:08:28

My ds (2.9) loves his wooden train set, leap pad, ELC tea set and his cousins Baby Annabel!

I'm loving my Trinny & Susannah book.
