    Wow I can't believe she had to prove they were her own kids!

    I totally get that they have to have certain rules and that some people aren't above lying, but she goes to the same soft play all the time so you'd think that they would know them and just book them

    You've got some great present ideas! Our Smyth's catalogue came the other day, but I've hid it and am not planning on showing it to my girls! Dd2 especially, will need everything she sees!

    Wow, shocking they would even ask that. Most people are responsible enough to not lie at times like this!

    My mum came over tonight and she's desperate to start buying for the girls. They couldn't give her any ideas and she just kept showing them things and they said no. I've said she will just have to cut down this year as they have everything. My eldest is very particular about her barbies and dolls so doesn't actually want any more. DD2 who is 6 is adamant she wants a ride on car. She is too big for one and we have no room!

    It's going to be really hard this year to come up with enough ideas to go round!

    We are struggling with ideas too. It's hard coming up with things that they will play with and won't end up getting shoved in a drawer like previous years!

    Ds3 was the same when he saw them in the snyths book. He wabted to know why they didn't do them for big kids. I had to explain that they'd basically be small cars the amount of power they'd need and children aren't allowed to drive :haha:

    Especially when the stuff they like becomes more expensive. She mentioned getting them a bag (they have loads) but I hate keep saying no they have that. They have EVERYTHING!

    Got a couple of new ideas (finally) and sent them onto my mum/sister.

    Den building kits . All you need is bedsheets and they can create their own dens.

    Marble Run. The girls got out a old plastic one today and it's not very good. Looked online at gravitrax and it looks cool and comes with expansion packs.

    Finally have some sort of list for the girls to start off woth....I was thinking off 10 main presents and then a stocking of random bits like bath bombs etc

    They both have very similar interests so it's easy to just buy the similar things twice.

    They still haven't given me an actual list. DD2 asks for the most random things she doesn't really want. DD1 only asked for the pixie fairy thing.

    DD1 - 8 -
    Designafriend teepee tent
    Designafriend outfits GOT
    Hatchimal flying pixie
    Barbie colour reveal
    Chelsea colour reveal doll
    Books
    Board
    Craft kit
    Onesie/Slippers
    Trampoline voucher

    DD2 - 6 - BUDGET £150-200
    Designafriend teepee tent
    Designafriend outfits GOT
    Hatchimal flying pixie
    Barbie colour reveal mermaid
    Chelsea colour reveal doll
    Books
    Board
    Craft kit
    Onesie/Slippers
    Trampoline voucher

    Joint Present
    Scooter (with the two foot plates)
    DH and I debated with each other over this as I wanted to get two and he said they wouldn't get that much use. So we agreed as a joint gift

    Stuffaloons - Again I thought about getting them one each but it seems pointless, I'll just order extra balloons.

    Designerfriend car - This is a maybe as tbh we do not have the room but they have asked for it in the past, if they ask again I'll get this.
