    Designafriend teepee tent
    Designafriend outfits
    Book collection (will look in the works)
    Board game of some sort
    Onesie

    DD2 - 6 - BUDGET £150-200
    Designafriend teepee tent
    Designafriend outfits
    Book collection (will look in the works)

    Following! Could Santa send her a reply saying that the elves who open the mail aren't very good at reading and to help them out could she have mummy record a message to email to them, then she'll tell you what she wants?

    Good idea but I think there will be more lists between now and November when we write them properly.
    One was paw patrol which she had when she was 3!

    Smyth's catalogue came yesterday. Girls went mad just circling everything. I think we'll sit down again properly as DD2 wanted everything even a ride on car for a toddler

    I'm still waiting for my catalogue. They are so funny when they are like that arent they? One year one of mine went through that stage and even wanted some cillit bang

    Ha ha I'd like a nice cleaning basket actually so maybe I'll suggest that.

    I only ordered the catalogue late last week....going to have a look through myself now they're in bed x

    So I've just had a browse.
    They have pretty much marked off everything (most of which they have had before such as baby dolls and accessories and a play kitchen)

    I only actually could come up with a few ideas for them both:
    Barbie colour reveal mermaid
    Generation doll accessory sets (as they prefer the designafriend dolls)
    Bunk beds for the designafriends dolls
    Stuffaloons (balloons you can fill with toys etc)

    Another idea I had was a real slushy machine (not Mr Frosty)

    Still I guess I'm getting somewhere

    They've had one before and loved it, although they don't actually play with the doll (DD1 is very particular about the dolls she actually plays with).
    It's become a bath toy now. However I still think they'll like the mermaid and Chelsea dolls so that's one thing for their lists.

    We half drive/walk to school and the girls usually go on their scooters (metal style ones).

    Anyway they've started using the two scooters as one to balance (hard to explain) so I'm thinking of getting them one of those scooters with two footplates. Saw them in Smyth's so that could be a main present :)
