    so what are you planning on getting the kiddies this year?

    For Hannah she so far has a play kitchen and a set of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse books.

    I want to get her:

    a tea seat
    a dolly and pram/stroller
    more Little People playsets (she loves the things)
    and play food for her kitchen (maybe--if I can find some that is age appropriate)

    I already have:
    a fancy set of wooden blocks

    a wooden peg puzzle

    this book
    http://www.amazon.com/Childs-Day-Alphabet-Play/dp/0152065520

    I need to get a few more small things that I can take on the plane, as we are doing xmas at my in-laws' this year. I am thinking a set of Duplo to add to what he inherited from my brother and maybe the 123 playmobil helicopter? Small, but fun.
    I also want to get him a set of beeswax crayons and some paper. It might be a bit early for that, though.
    Simon's birthday is six days after xmas, so I am still trying to figure out what to do for that. Maybe some of what I am looking at above will be given at the birthday?
    I may get him some secondhand ski equipment and get us both some passes to the local bunny hill. I learned to ski just after walking (grew up next to a ski hill!), so I may try it out with him.

    God I have no idea.... :( It's Byron's birthday in November and the only thing we have planned for that is a toy box I'm painting up and that wasn't even meant to be a birthday present! With Byron only being one I think we won't get much. He's got this massive stocking from one of his Auntie's last year though so I guess we should try and fill it somehow.

    I've not made any definite lists but we want to get DS a scalextric set, we got him one for his birthday but it was a cheapy one and broke the day after, so we want to get him a decent one cos he loved it.

    I want to get the girls a pram and doll set each and also a kitchen to share in their bedroom.

    That's all I can think of at the moment though, need to have a good look online for inspiration!

    I might buy our new baby something too, just incase she decides to break the trend of being late like her siblings and arrived early (Full term from the 17th of December so it's wishful thinking!). Wouldn't be anything extravagant though, just a nice teddy or something :)

    Hannah got a ride on toy for her birthday and loves it! She also really likes her shape sorter. I wish I'd gotten her a ball pit, but I thought my cats would end up scratching it so didn't bother :lol:

    So far we've gotten Grady clothes, some stacking cups... and bibs.
    We're going to get him a toolbench, toolbelt, a fisher price activity table. Also need to get lots of bath toys as he LOVES the bath. I kind of want a ball pit for him too..
    I don't know what else though. There are so many things, it's really hard. Plus his birthday is in March, so I don't want to get everything for Christmas, and then struggle at his birthday!
