    my step mum has bought jordan this...

    http://www.etoys.com/genProduct.htm...tock/Y/D?_e=4585a&_v=4585AEE6u6oba1783AFEEBB6

    but jordans already got it, i got him it from a car boot ages ago and im pretty sure she knoes that too. i dont really get on with my stepmum and wont get vhance to speak to her to tell her hes got it.

    my brother just told me about it, but he thinks its hilarious so hes not going to tell he either

    Accept it grateful :lol: Warn the child if they may spill. Then sell it or take it back to the shop to get something else :lol: Everytime she comes round tell her the one you already have is hers She wont know the difference.

    hehe I'm the same wobbles, and have a couple of times bought something they already have.

    I would just say thanks for the fab present but he already has one so if its ok, you will return it and get something else.
