    I got Charlie a push along trolley with bricks in it.......huge hit, I also got her a trike, but she was too tiny for it, and I got her a 'baby' which she loved. It was the Zapff one from 1yr. For christmas (2 months before) I got her a Lottie ladybird (similar to the catapillar) and she has only just started to like it, although its now waaaaaay to slow for her!
    I got her lots of books, and small bits and bobs.

    EDIT - Well; I added all those things up, and it came to £202.88! so I don't know if it's really worth spending that much on her when she is so young! think we will not bother with a few more of the expensive things such as the Bi-lingual learning table!

    I got the trolley from ELC I think. I personally wouldnt spend that much!

    Charlie liked all the basic stuff really, a drum from boots, the bricks, and I got her some stacking boxes that graduate in size, with numbers on, she loved them.

    Id just keep it simple!

    LOL we were thinking that, ok knock off £30.. £132.91, which is not too bad I suppose.. we're headed in the right direction bearing in mind that a few weeks before xmas I will go mad lol.:blush:

    You're right about the trampoline though Yvanne, I was thinking the same with the baby assault course too.. I said to my boyfriend "sod it, we'll just get a baby paddling pool and fill it with those balls".

    Well, I think we've seen Robin Hood in Tesco for about £10, so I will check that out too - (it doesn't have to be Robin Hood, im just starting her little Disney collection so im collecting my faves!)

    I was going to get Bethanie a rocking horse, but I think the caterpillar is so adorable and colourful.. I think she'd really like it. Caterpillar is where I put my foot down lol, i've got my heart set on him!:cloud9::happydance:

    Thanks for trying to save me some money though. :)

    Shit yea I meant right LOL sorry.:rofl:

    Yep, my mums always saying that to me about my brother and I preferring the boxes at christmas..:hissy: so I think id much rather put some money in her CTF or towards something when she is older than a few toys that we will end up selling in a few months for £5 when shes bored of them.:dohh:

    Ey, just noticed you work at Tesco too.. I love it there it's like a night out for us :p you can let me know about those Disney offers then. ;)

    Sounds reasonable, but me and money have a problem! I need to be careful, everything seems to have come at once (birthdays, holiday etc):wacko::wacko:

    We didn't get Jonny anything for his first birthday or Christmas but put money in the bank! He had so much from everyone else it was obscene! Will be tricky with Frankie as her bday is 28th December. Also Jonny will want to know why santa didn't bring her anything!
